Hybrid Pianos

Always at the head of the class in innovation, Yamaha designed and marketed the first truly hybrid piano. The NU1X has been an industry hit since it was first released. It’s a synthesis of the action of Yamaha’s U1 professional upright piano with a sound engine that only Yamaha could design. For piano purists for whom only an acoustic piano action is acceptable, this fits the bill, and then some! A non-contact optical sensor system enables the player to coax astonishingly varied timbres from the instrument. It boasts 256-note polyphony so every nuance is captured. Fifteen on-board sound samples let your musical imagination soar! It also boasts a handsome ebony polish cabinet and slow close fallboard just like its cousin, the U1.
