Avant Grand

21st Century “Hybrid” Piano

Forget any pre-conceived ideas about so-called "digital pianos" that you might have.

Classic Pianos invites you to view this video presentation of the revolutionary Avant Grand "Hybrid" piano by Yamaha. We thought you might enjoy hearing how some concert-level pianists feel about this new instrument.

The Avant Grand is shockingly different, and is garnering international acclaim from even the most ardent critics of non-acoustic instruments.

Please visit our showroom to play and evaluate the AvantGrand for yourself.

"No doubt, the Avant Grand is perfect for the pianist who needs a compact grand for a relatively compact price. It has a very responsive touch, closest to the real thing I have found thus far. It also has quite a good internal speaker system that sounds quite authentic. It's a perfect fit for tighter practice rooms or smaller apartments. Midnight hammering at the keys, as in trying to keep it down while trying to compose your opus, is not such a problem, leastways as far as the instrument is concerned."
-Gino Vannelli
