To express yourself musically, you need to form a physical bond with your instrument. In the case of the AvantGrand series, it starts with real wooden keys with a comfortable touch. Then comes the all-important key action, which the AvantGrand series has inherited from Yamaha’s esteemed concert grand pianos. Beneath your fingers you sense the same precise weight and responsiveness, the same scope for expression. To capture every nuance of your performance, Yamaha employs a non-contact optical sensor system that doesn’t affect the feel or performance of the action in any way. Under each key is a continuous optical sensor that captures the speed and depth at which that key is depressed. An additional optical sensor affixed to each hammer shank measures the timing and strength of the hammer hitting the virtual “strings”. This information is instantly translated into a beautifully authentic sound reproduction. The more you play, the more you find yourself becoming one with the piano.
When it comes to judging piano tone, much depends on personal taste. To help you achieve the tonal palette you desire, Yamaha offers the choice of two world-class grand pianos in one—each with its own unique character to convey the emotion you want to express through a piece of music. At the touch of a button on the AvantGrand N1X, you can opt for authentic sounds sampled either from a Yamaha CFX concert grand or from a Bösendorfer Imperial. As Yamaha’s flagship grand piano, the majestic CFX boasts a wide palette of tonal colors, from sparkling high notes to powerful bass tones. The legendary Bösendorfer, meanwhile, is renowned for its sonorous and rich Viennese sound. Either way, the lifelike sounds of the AvantGrand N1X allow you to explore the outer reaches of your expressive imagination.
With the introduction of the AvantGrand, Yamaha ignited a revolution in the approach to sampling recording and playback of the notes of the actual acoustic piano. Treating the sound-board not simply as a point source of sound but as a plane, we took samples at four positions, adding optimum center and rear locations to the traditional left and right. Meanwhile, the AvantGrand’s speaker system has been designed to ensure that this sound is heard best at the playing position. A three-way system featuring woofer, mid-range and tweeter speakers precisely reproduce the rich natural resonance of the soundboard. Even more, each of the low-, mid-, and high-frequency bands has been given its own amplifier to prevent interference between bands. This innovative configuration allows the instrument’s outstanding sound system to reproduce the nuances of each individual note. For even greater sonic accuracy, feature speaker layouts optimized for the size of the instruments.
In a grand piano, strings and sounds resonate throughout the entire body of the instrument producing a rich reverberation that envelops the listener in sound. Not only are the strings you are playing vibrating, but other strings ring as a reaction to ones you play. This is one reason the piano sound is so complex and rich.
This phenomena is reproduced perfectly in the AvantGrand N1X through Virtual Resonance Modeling (VRM) which calculates the various states of the strings for each of the 88 notes on the keyboard from one instant to the next. As a result, the N1X reflects the limitless number of factors inherent in playing an acoustic piano such as which keys are pressed, the strength with which the keys are played and pedal timing.

Six stars if I could. After a catastrophe at our house totaled our grand piano, I spent over a month shopping for a replacement, my wife joining me for what wound up being the last big day of shopping. I had previously visited Falcetti in Springfield and was impressed with their shop. They have exceptionally competent technical staff and they had applied their skill to the piano we wound up with.

The all-included price was in the sweet spot of our price range and the piano is exactly perfect in our room. A huge thanks to the unknown-to-me previous owner who took perfect care of this fine instrument, to the technical team at Falcetti who rehabbed the necessary bits to make it even more perfect, to Jake and Nick for the superb sales and management work, and to the double team of movers for getting it in successfully!

A Friendly, professional environment filled with the most exquisite instruments. Every time I visit the employees are so friendly, knowledgeable and hospitable. They truly allow you all the time you want to enjoy the instruments they have in stock. Come time for me to buy an instrument, I knew I would go to Falcetti. I purchased a piano a few weeks ago and Falcetti made the whole process seamless!

I walked into the store and was greeted by friendly staff. I was given the opportunity to browse without being pestered. As I browsed, staff was easily accessible to answer questions. Their selection was incredible, both new and used, digital, uprights and grand pianos. There were price tags for every budget. I left elated and continue to be with both my purchase and their service. Thank You Falcetti for a wonderful experience!!
