The Yamaha GH1B Model is fully made in Japan and meets the high standards that the Made in Japan range of Yamaha pianos has become famous for. It is a small grand piano that produces very high standards of sound and performance. This particular Yamaha GH1B has been retro fitted with the Piano Disc IQ Intellegent Player system. PianoDisc’s revolutionary iQ allows you to control your piano with today’s latest music playback technology such as the iDevices, Android devices, MP3 players, and other music playback devices. And with PianoDisc’s elegant SilentDriveHD that plays your piano, the system will deliver a beautiful, fully expressive piano performance—even at whisper-soft levels.
iQ makes operating a PianoDisc player system easier than ever before because you can operate it from something you are familiar with. Simply play, pause, stop or even adjust the volume, as you normally would, and the piano will respond. As a bonus, the fact that almost any music playback device will work with iQ means that you’ll always be able to use the latest music playback gear to control your piano. Think of it as built-in insurance on your investment. iQ gives you the flexibility to enjoy a truly invisible system, with no visible electronics mounted on the piano. (Not all configurations are “invisible”. Your choice of music player will affect whether it is seen or needs to be mounted on the piano.) With iQ, you’ll enjoy piano performances created by the world’s finest pianists. With one of the largest music libraries in the world, titles in every category from classical to rock, and literally thousands of songs to choose from, PianoDisc is sure to have all your favorites. iQ can even play your piano via DVD players, so you can enjoy watching pianists play your piano live via a PianoVideo. These exciting DVDs deliver Standard or High Definition Blu-ray video and live piano performances. With PianoVideos you’ll enjoy original performances made by terrific jazz, pop and New Age players, classical virtuosos, wonderful instrumental groups and fantastic vocalists. With brilliant images on the screen and live piano performances, iQ and PianoVideos will give you a private concert in the comfort of your home.

Our guarantee covers any technical fault that you may encounter with your piano however, any fault due to misuse, problems encountered from not having the piano serviced regularly and any problems caused due to excess or inconsistent heat, cold or moisture will not be covered by our warranty.
To ensure that your piano is covered by our warranty it must be serviced by a representative of Shackleford Pianos, along with this, please follow our tips on how to take care of your piano:
Even if your piano is not used it will go out of tune. Make sure you have your piano tuned every six months.
Avoid humidity. The best humidity level to keep a piano at is around 60%
Avoid placing your piano near a radiator or against an outside wall, near open fireplaces or log burners.
Avoid water damage. Keep vases, pot plants, cups of tea etc away from the piano.
When you clean your piano use a micro fibre cloth. Do not use furniture polish.
The best temperature to keep your piano at is between 21 - 24c The worst thing you can expose a piano to is extremes of heat and humidity. For example, if you go away for a few days and let your house freeze, then come home and put your heating on high, expect piano problems. Instead, slowly introduce heat into the room.
Our beginner's pianos are all at A440 concert pitch, respond to a grade 5 playing standard, and are guaranteed for three years against any technical problems. These are ideal pianos to get started on. If you then decide within the first three years that you love the piano so much you want to upgrade to a better model, we will give you what you paid for your beginner piano (less transport costs) as a trade in value on your upgraded piano. All we ask is that you follow the guidelines above and this will maintain the warranty.
