I have a question. I have already asked the yamaha support, but did not get a good answer. I have an S6 grand piano with the yanaha silent sh system built in. Now playing at moderate speeds is all fine, but I have extreme difficulties playing it fast and piano. First I thought my technique was just bad, but then I played other instruments, and it was much better.

Especially there are passages e.g in Bach’s d minor concerto where you have to repeat one single note quite fast. It is just impossible on my instrument when playing softly. If I do it, the sound disappears or breaks down or you hear every second note. But if you play it loudly, then it is possible.

I had one technician, who tried it and said the touch is a bit hard, but it is ok for practising and it is just a yamaha. I should not compare it to a steinway.

But I think, it is because of this silent system built in and no one knowing how to regulate the action to its full potential without interfering with the system. There is also a metallic bar on top of the action hiding some screws needed for a proper regulation.

What do you think? Have you ever had experience with regulating an action with the sh system to a concert level? Does one need to remove this bar which seems to be very tightly screwed? How much time will be needed to do the regulation?

Getting the setoff close enough is the problem I find with silent systems.
