Kemble's Conservatoire Silent SH model has a sensational sonority and a wonderful dynamic range with the added benefit of being able to play through headphones.
The previous Silent System allowed players to 'switch off' the audible acoustic sound on their pianos; a sample/synthesized sound would then be heard through headphones or connected speakers/PA, making it ideal for late night practice, studio and stage use.
The new SH Silent technology takes the Silent system several steps further, vastly improving the piano sound, adding additional instrument sounds (such as harpsichord, organ and strings) and offering an easy to use recording system.
Voices can be layered with each other and/or with the acoustic piano's own sound and powerful features such as Dynamic Damper Effect (DDE) and several reverb types add to the realism.
