How Did the Disklavier Yamaha Player Piano Come About?

A Disklavier baby grand is akin to a modern day Yamaha player piano and more! It is a hybrid of acoustical and digital pianos introduced to the public in 1986.

Computer technology made it possible for Yamaha to design and manufacture an instrument that is able to mimic a live acoustic piano and ensemble music complete with musical backing and vocal tracks. Through push-button technology it provides the sounds of an entire band at the touch of a button.

The First Yamaha Disklavier Piano

The first generation of Disklavier baby grand pianos made by Yamaha gave the world a glimpse of the future as it equipped a traditional acoustic piano with digital electronics to make it possible to record, auto playback, orchestrate and more. Over time more technological breakthroughs brought improvements to Yamaha's Disklavier.

There are now more than 20 Disklavier baby grand piano models on the market. Yet, despite all the integrated technology, the piano's acoustical qualities are not compromised.

Many music enthusiasts, pianists, educators and composers find the Disklavier pianos a great option as a personal piano. The Disklavier permits you to record and play-back your performance or composition. You can directly connect the Disklavier to computers and the Internet for updates. You can create a multi-track arrangement for your composition and you can customize a Disklavier's functions to suit your requirements.

Disklavier Pianodisc Technology

The Pianodisc is actually a digital system that you can install onto any acoustical piano to upgrade it into a mergence of acoustic and digital pianos. There is no Disklavier Pianodisc rather a Disklavier PianoSmart™ technology.
