The Yamaha AvantGrand N3X is an instrument I always play when I get a spare minute, as it offers the most authentic playing experience possible on a high end digital instrument – it really is gorgeous and I never fail to feel inspired after playing it.

When you play the Yamaha N3X you are hearing two of the finest grand piano sounds being reproduced: the Yamaha CFX Concert Grand & the Bösendorfer Imperial Grand. These world-class pianos are right at your fingertips with the N3x and Yamaha having captured the intricate subtleties of the sounds faultlessly – it’s amazing when you hear it in the flesh.

Yamaha N3X | Feel

When it comes to considering a high end digital piano, the ‘feel’ of the keys (the ‘action’) is an extremely important factor to consider.

Playing piano is physical experience – like painting or writing – it requires you to engage with all senses (not just sound) and therefore the touch of a piano key and the weight of the keys play a big part in your overall experience. With the Yamaha N3X and in fact all of the Yamaha AvantGrand Range, the action has been reproduced with such precision that the bridge between digital and acoustic is getting closer and closer, creating what Yamaha call a ‘Hybrid’ instrument.

Hybrid Design

The Yamaha N3X is a Hybrid piano – half and half. If you opened it up (which we certainly wouldn’t recommend doing…!) aside from the computer parts and the circuitry, you would also find yourself looking at traditional acoustic piano parts (like hammers and counter-weights) – even the wood of the keys you play on is the same wood you would find on the real thing. It’s quite remarkable how much detail goes into it.

As one of Yamaha’s premium digital piano dealers, we usually keep a Yamaha AvantGrand-series instrument in our store, so why not contact us to book an appointment to come and experience the Yamaha N3X for yourself – whilst it’s still here..?
