Yamaha Nocturne Grand Contemporary Digital Piano

Captures the essence of the grand piano.

The Nocturne N100 is contemporary-style console digital piano featuring a sleek, black cabinet that combines an elegant, modern design with hints of traditional grand piano styling. It has 88-key graded hammer-effect action, 3-level Dynamic Stereo Sampling, and an Advanced Wave Memory tone engine for authentic, richly textured grand piano sound and play. The Graded Hammer Effect (GH) keyboard provides authentic piano feel and naturally expressive response: keys are weighted heavier in the lower octaves and become gradually lighter into the upper just like an acoustic grand piano

Three piano-style foot pedals: soft, sostenuto, and damper (sustain) with special half-pedal effect, fluidly measures your motion of pedaling for an added sense of acoustic piano realism. The built-in 20W x 20W stereo amplifier and 4-speaker system provide the warmth of tone and volume perfectly suited for the home environment - no external sound system is required. Exceptional ease of use and simple operation with backlit touch controls, MIDI IN/OUT ports for communicating with other instruments or computers via MIDI interface. Moveable music rest included.

Escape the complicated world
In a complicated world where technology seems to overwhelm what used to be the simplest of tasks, the Nocturne Grand N-100 is an oasis of simplicity and pure piano pleasure. Contemporary and expressive, the Nocturne Grand features gorgeous, richly textured sound and a modern yet classic design that fully evoke the beauty and elegance of a concert grand piano.

The advanced digital technology is invisible, the sophisticated electronics transparent. What you see, hear and play is a piano one that is virtually indistinguishable from the real thing. Drawing on vast experience with both acoustic and electronic instruments, Yamaha has captured the true essence of the grand piano, bringing all of the dynamic sounds and performance nuances of an actual 9-foot concert grand into a compact digital piano. The result is a truly classic instrument that becomes a natural extension of both your hands and your musical imagination.

The Actual sounds of a Concert Grand Piano
Yamaha continues its rich tradition of innovation by unveiling the Nocturne N-100 Digital Piano, which is sure to become a contemporary classic. With speakers conveniently tucked into the rear cabinet and pedal frame, the Nocturne N-100 has a slim look top-to-bottom, despite its considerable depth. The result is a compact footprint that echoes the shape of a streamlined square-grand piano with an attractive black finish, slow-close fall board, and tasteful, soft-glowing, blue-lit control surface.

The N-100 wraps high-quality touch and tone into a package that features breakthrough design. The N-100 boasts 88 Graded Hammer Effect, weighted-action keys; 64 notes of polyphony; 10 of Yamaha's best keyboard voices (including Grand Piano, Electronic Piano, Pipe Organ, and Strings); and 50 built-in songs of standard piano repertoire that can play continuously. It also includes a spacious digital reverb that adds depth to its deceptively slim appearance and dual voice mode for the richer tone of two sounds playing together.
