Graham Howard ukpianos.co.uk editor"When asked to recommend a piano that's good to learn and progress on, my number one recommendation is the Broadway B1. This piano has a full, resonant piano tone; 88 full-size, fully-weighted, touch sensitive keys and a slim, compact cabinet making it the perfect learner's piano. Great value for money!", Graham Howard – Piano Advisor.

What our customers say…

1) "I bought it unseen and unheard"

I love the Broadway B1 we took delivery of last week. I bought it unseen and unheard and purely on your reviews and then recommendation.  
It feels like an acoustic piano and has a much better sound (my old piano was really old!!).  The fact that it's digital and therefore has headphones is wonderful, as I can now practise without disturbing the neighbours – as a beginner something I'm sure we all appreciate!!

I haven't tried out it's many features yet but looking forward to introducing my granddaughter to it – again the headphones will be a real bonus!!

Diana Harrison with her new Broadway Review by Diana Harrison, Shipley, West Yorkshire

2) "I recommend both UK Pianos shop and manufacturer"

We needed an electric piano for the family to learn on. Choose the Broadway B1 from UK Pianos after a bit of searching,. Service was great and includes on site warranty work if required for 3 years which gives me piece of mind but the piano appears to be a solid piece of technology. I recommend both UK Pianos shop and manufacturer.

Mark Belcher Broadway B1 review Review by Mark Belcher, Crawley, West Sussex

3) "Totally in love with my Broadway"

I purchased my Broadway digital just under a year ago. I have not stopped playing it since it arrived. I bought it totally on trust having never heard or played this model, but Graham recommended it and he knows what he talking about. Delivery was pain free, on time and assembled for me.
Recently my piano got a 'clicky' key. The engineer arrived yesterday exactly at the time arranged (definitely not Argos type service) and fixed the problem. If you want a piano you need this company.

3) "Very pleased with the Broadway B1 purchased and excellent service"

Wanting to buy a first but good piano for both myself and son to learn on took quite a lot of investigating. This uk pianos website has the clearest and most relevant information you will need to make the right choice based on your budget and requirements. Very pleased with the Broadway B1 piano purchased and excellent service. Myself and both my children are enjoying learning this new skill with an excellent instrument.

Broadway B1 Review by Julie Singer Review by Julia Singer, High Halstow, Rochester, Medway, Kent

4) "Fantastic Piano and Service"

We bought our daughter a Broadway B1 digital piano in satin black from UK Pianos just before Christmas.
The service from UK Piano's was fantastic, from choosing the right piano right through to delivery.

John Gould Broadway B1 Review Review by John Gould, Aldershot, Hampshire

5) "A lovely sounding piano for a really competitive price"

I have been very impressed with my Broadway B1 piano. Delivery was on the day expected and the driver was extremely polite and helpful. The maple piano and stool match my office furniture perfectly.
Thanks to Graham I have a lovely sounding piano for a really competitive price. As I have recently retired, I now practice daily and thankfully some of my skills from a teenager are returning and I can play several pieces. I am really enjoying my purchase, and my husband has not complained once, which in itself is a miracle!

Pam Goode playing her new Broadway B1 in maple Review by Pamela Goode, Coventry

6) "I have not found competition in its price range!"

I bought a Broadway B1 that was in the same price range as a Casio but with a better look much more organic sound and all together a better feel.

I can only recommend this digital piano for the price as I have tried quite a few and I have not found competition in its price range. The delivery was also great got it next day and got an hour time slot for delivery which was very convenient. I have been loving my new instrument and since I have been taking classes with UK Pianos my skills improved a lot as well!

ARHA Graded Hammer Action Keyboard

ARHA (Real Hammer Action) simulates the natural touch and playing performance of an acoustic grand piano. It offers a smooth and responsive feel. The Keyboard doesn't use springs, instead its action is provided by hammer weight, which gives it an authentic piano feel.

Synthentic Ivory Keys

The key tops are made to feel like ivory. They are smooth and silky, have more grip than plastic keys, and absorb sweat from your fingers to prevent slipping.

USB

The Broadway B1 is USB class compliant and can therefore be used as a master keyboard with any digital audio workstation.

GM Sound Module

The built in GM sound module is multi-timbral (16 channels) but can only be accessed from a PC (MAC or Windows) via USB.
It can play back midi files from a computer that could be used as backing tracks to play along to.

Assembly

The piano comes flat-packed and is easy to assemble (instructions in English provided). The keyboard, electronics and cables are all fixed in – all you need to do is assemble the base. There are four screws that fix the base to the keyboard, four to fix the base together and a few smaller screws to fit the back board. The screw holes are already made and no gluing is required. We do advise two people to do the job though – purely because of the keyboard's weight – It's heavy and safer to have a helping hand when lifting it on to the base.

If you would like us to assemble the piano then please call 020 8367 2080.

You Also Get:

FREE 3 Year In-Home Warranty (Covers all parts and labour for 3 years. Repairs carried out in your home).

"The Broadway B1 feels like an acoustic piano and sounds like one. I am very happy with it"

Hi Graham

Thank you for your email and also your guide to buying a digital piano. After spending a great deal of time reading all your comments, I felt I was ready to make a decision.

I traveled down to Enfield last Tuesday. All the ladies were very helpful and pleasant. After receiving your guide to buying a digital piano, I bought the Broadway B1. It was delivered on Saturday by a very helpful young man who assembled the piano for me. He even phoned ahead telling me what time he would be arriving. That is great customer service. I am sorry I do not have his name. All the staff at UK Pianos made the purchase a pleasure.

I have played the piano for many years and this is my second digital piano. The one I replaced I have had since 1988. Digital pianos have come a long way since then. The Broadway B1 feels like an acoustic piano and sounds like one. I am very happy with it.

Thank you, Graham, and the staff at UK Pianos.

"The piano has a super touch and sound"

Hello Graham,

Your booklet was invaluable, and after phoning you we finally decided to follow your advice and purchase the Broadway B1. This arrived very quickly, and although unfortunately there was minor cosmetic damage caused by manufacturing faults, we were delighted with your rapid response to this. The piano has a super touch and sound.

Thank you for giving us such good advice and service all the way through.

"I am very pleased with the very good service"

I live in SW London  and I went to UK PIANOS last sat afternoon. I am very pleased with the very good service provided by Afsana. After talking through my past experience and my desire of coming back to Piano lessons, I took the rent to buy plan on a Broadway B1. A member of staff who was doing the front garden played it for me! The Piano arrived well packed on the arranged delivery day and time. However, the stool was missing and as soon as I acknowledged to Uk pianos, the stool arrived immediately the day after.

Review by Corina Arroyo
 

"The Broadway B1 is a superb instrument costing a fraction of others in the market. Highly recommended!"
 
This is my Review of the Broadway B1 piano recently purchased and the associated service provided by UK Pianos.
 
1. Choosing the correct piano was made easy with all the pros and cons fully explained by UK Pianos.
2. Photographs and specifications and full descriptions were all provided by UK Pianos.
3. There was no pressure to buy anything – just helpful guidance.
4. Purchase was made by ‘phone using my debit card.
5 .Delivery by TNT was arranged by U K Pianos and cost me nothing. We live in the Isle of Man but delivery took only 3 days.
6. The piano is full size and quite heavy (about 40 kg). It’s a two-man job to unwrap it, but the assembly is simple an takes about an hour.
7. The piano looks fantastic. Ours is dark Rosewood but they do other colours including white and satin black.
8. The piano has quite a number of ‘voices’ but we have only used the grand piano setting so far and it is very authentic.  There is also a master volume control  and headphones are provided  if you wish to play in private.
9. The Broadway B1 piano  has fully weighted keys which respond faithfully to the pressure the player  uses. So you can play softly or loudly (even extremely loud if you wish) with everything in between, simply by altering your touch.
10.It is fully guaranteed for three years, parts and labour.
10.All in all, the Broadway B1 a superb instrument costing a fraction of others available in the market.  
12.Highly recommended!

Customer Comments and Questions

"We live quite far from London, how would you provide a warranty?"

Hi Graham

I was looking at Broadway B1 piano for my son who is in grade 3. We live in Haverfordwest, Pembrokeshire. You mention 3 year warranty but we are quite far from london. How would you provide a warranty and also how much does that piano weigh?
Thanks, Sunita

Reply/ Hi Sunita

We have digital piano technicians all over the UK.
So if your piano needed attention, we would
send the one that lives nearest to you.

The Broadway B1 weighs 45kg.

Let me know if you have more questions.

Yours pianistically,

Graham Howard

"I think the Broadway B1 might do the trick – but concerned it may lack watts?"

Basically I am a music graduate and teacher (Semi pro French Horn player) and grade 7 pianist looking to do grade 8 before I retire.

Due to a change in personal circumstances my lovely 1930s art deco Brasted upright will not fit in my new accomodation. Am looking for something to practice on that will give musical satisfaction under about £800.
Dont like yamaha electric pianos at all – although my 1980s PF85 now does sterling work in a practice room at school!

Think the Broadway B1 might do the trick – but I am concerned it may lack watts?

Don't want styles and beats etc as I hear them all at school – but a simple recor feature would be good to practice piano duets with myself!

Any ideas welcome.

Thanks, Paul

Reply/ Hi Paul

Yes, the Broadway B1 is a good piano for the price.

I like the key touch. It is fully-weighted and feels
close to playing a real piano.

The sound output is much louder than other pianos
with a similar wattage. It actually plays like a piano
that has double the wattage, this is because the
speaker system is well designed.

Quality speakers do make quite a difference to
volume output and tone.

Yours pianistically,

Graham Howard

"What if it goes wrong after the 3 year warranty?"

I have 2 concerns … one is resale. It is an unknown brand and is sold nowhere else it seems.
Two is repairs. What if it goes wrong after the 3 year warranty? Who will repair it and with what parts?

Thanks, Nicole

Reply/ Hi Nicole

Broadway pianos have only been available in the UK since 2011.
This is the reason there aren’t many sellers yet.

They’re really nice pianos and will become popular over
time as more retailers start to sell them.

You can read lots of reviews here:
http://www.ukpianos.co.uk/broadway-b1-review.html

If it goes wrong outside the warranty period then
just contact us. We keep all parts.

Yours pianistically,

Graham Howard

Hi Graham

I did find the guide very useful, thank you. I'm in discussions with my wife about whether we proceed with a purchase and, if so, where we would put the piano. In this respect the information in the guide is very helpful.

My wife has been thinking about learning piano for a while and we would also want our piano to be suitable for my daughter, who is currently four and a half, when she is old enough to start in the next six months or so.

We would therefore want a piano suitable for beginners, including a small child. From your guide and website, the Broadway B1 seems like a good bet. Would you agree? Also, that model appears to be a few years old. Does it stand up well to more recent models from other manufacturers?

Kind regards
Tim

Reply/ The Broadway B1 has a nice, full tone. And
the key touch is fully-weighted. It also
quite smooth and responsive under the fingers.

Also, the cabinet is compact, so it takes
up less space than other digital pianos.

What's more, it's a good piano for your wife
and daughter to learn and progress on… finger
strength and technique will develop in the correct
way.  And they'll find it easy to transfer to an
upright or grand piano later.

The B1 has recently been updated to include
all the latest technology and improvements:
256 note polyphony, imitation ivory keys, larger
speakers, USB to host etc.
The manufacture decided to keep the same
model number.

"Take-it-Away Finance Scheme"

After conversations with a member of your team I would like to suggest that your shop do not participate in Arts Council England take it away scheme because different terms and conditions apply.
The operator clearly said you do but here is 10% deposit not 50 % as you offer only and rest of installments are divided by 9 or 18 months depends on price.
As being listed on as shop on this website I would expect to have that option available otherwise it is not the best practice to attract customers via this scheme.

Regards
Michal

Reply/ Hi Michal
 
On the Arts Coucil Take-it-Away scheme we do offer 10% deposit and the same terms as elsewhere.
There must be some confusion.
Please call me on 020 8367 2080.
 
Yours pianistically,
 
Graham Howard

Hello Graham
Thank You for quick response and explanation about my queries. As in my opinion UK Pianos offer the best support and services not to mention the lowest prices in the UK.
Good to know that deposit starts from 10% however there is lack of information on your website about 'Take-It-Away' scheme. I will be in touch when I will sort out my finance to buy Broadway B1.

Regards
Michal Kulik

"Price of rental piano when purchased?"

Hello,

Can you please answer a question I have regarding the rental scheme.
I'm looking to buy or rent a Broadway B1 piano. If I choose to rent can
you confirm what price is used – will it be the price you are offering at
the time I start my rental or would it be the price when I come to buy
at the end of the rental period. If the latter, I guess it could be higher
than the current price ?

Thanks.

Nick

Reply/ Hi Nick

The price of the piano is fixed at the start of the rental.
So it will not change, no matter how long you rent for.

Yours pianistically,

Graham Howard

"I would like to buy something that looks sounds and feels like a piano"

Hi Graham,
 
I have really enjoyed and apreciated the advice that you have given in your book "7 things to know before you buy a digital piano". And yet I still am in need of your thoughts and suggestions.
 
I am not a piano player as such but write my own songs and like to put piano onto these when recording them at home. What I am looking for is a digital piano that gives me the flexibility to alter the piano's sounds to suit the song that I have written.
 
As I am not a piano player I do not feel that I can justify spending huge amounts of money on a really impressive intrument but would still like to buy something that looks sounds and feels like a piano.
 
Any suggestions at what I should be considering?
 
Many thanks
Peter

Reply/ Hi Peter

The Broadway B1 will do everything you want.

As well as being a good piano with a realistic

"I am delighted with the instrument and the sound quality"

Hi Graham

I bought a Broadway B1 from you and it arrived on Saturday. I am delighted with the instrument and the sound quality. However, it is A LOT heavier than I anticipated and I think I may have made a mistake and should have gone for a portable digital piano as I need to transport it back and forth to church.

I am wondering if I could return it and buy a keyboard instead? I am looking at the Classenti P1, which appears to be about half the weight of the Broadway B1. I love the sound and touch of the Broadway and wondered how much difference there is in between the two? I realise that I may have to sacrifice some sound quality, but I am wondering how much. Are the instruments comparable in terms of sound and touch or is there a real ‘drop’ in quality with the Classenti P1? Or would you recommend something other than the Classenti that is equally portable? (Maybe the Korg SP250?). Do either of these pianos have record/playback? Do they have USB ports for me to record onto?

Many thanks

Helen

Reply/ Hi Helen

The Classenti P1 is about half the weight
of the Broadway B1.
It has a heavier key touch than the B1.
The sound is richer and more natural.

Let me know if you would like to swap it.

Yours pianistically,

Graham Howard

Further Comment/ Hi Graham

Thanks for this. Despite liking the Broadway B1 very much, I think I probably need to swap to a more portable piano

"Can we get away with anything cheaper than the Broadway B1?"

Hi,

I have been reading your guide to buying a digital piano which is very helpful. We had originally looked at buying a second hand piano but now think a digital will be better. We have looked at second hand digitals but are put off by the age they generally seem to be.

My 14 year old son has been playing a keyboard for a number of years. He has recently switched to piano lessons. This is because he wants to take GCSE music & then go on to A' Level Music Technology. As we only have one local college that does Music Technology (& it is very popular) they require some kind of proof of his keyboard skills. We are now going the piano exam route so that he is well prepared & of course we now need something more than his Yamaha keyboard. He does want to be able to 'hook' it up to his computer so this is a main criteria.

From reading your guide, we have come to the conclusion that the Broadway B1 might be his best option. My main concerns are then
a) Will this be good enough for him?
b) Can we get away with anything cheaper? I did notice that you have an ex-display B1, could this be an option?
c) His piano teacher said that he would be ok up to a Grade 5 on a digital, not sure whether he is likely to go any higher but if he did would he cope on the B1?

I would be grateful for any further advice/thoughts you can give us.

Many thanks

Jo Gordon

Reply/ Hi Jo

Yes, the Broadway B1 is an excellent choice.

This piano has a fully-weighted key touch
and a really nice piano tone.

I recommend it up to grade 6. So your son
Can use this for many years.

It also has a USB computer connection.

We have a 6 month old ex-display Broadway B1
in black satin going for £470.

Please call me on 020 8367 2080 if you
would like to reserve it.

If you do want to look at cheaper pianos then
please be careful. Nearly all of them have only
a medium-weighted key touch (even though
they state ‘fully-weighted’ on the description).

Yours pianistically,

Graham Howard

"Warranty outside the UK"

Question/

Hi Graham,
This problem is not a real problem then. (To tell the truth in the meantime I found this fact in your first newsletter, too.)
Another thing that crossed my mind is warranty.
I live in Hungary, so how can I claim warranty rights it if a problem with the instrument arises during the two-years-warranty period?
And yet one thing. I suppose the instrument never needs service but devil never sleeps. What if a service is needed over those 2 years? (As I mentioned earlier Broadway is a rare crow in this country.) With how much probability this may occur?
Kind regards,
Peter
 
Reply/ Hi Peter

The warranty is covered by us.

If a problem occurred, then we’d find the closest
technician to you and send them to your home
for a repair.

We keep parts for up to 10 years.

If something needed doing outside the warranty
period, then we would send you the spare part
and a local technician can still come and fix it.

Kind regards,
 
Graham Howard

Hi Graham,
 
I have found the UK Pianos site very easy to navigate.
 
Anything that I needed to know regarding digital pianos, the site had all the answers and more.
 
I shall be purchasing a Broadway B1 from UK Pianos in the near future.

"Is it OK for the piano to be in very warm, very cold rooms?"

Hi Graham
 
Hope you are well. I bought the Broadway B1 from you earlier this year and am really enjoying playing it. I wanted to ask your advice about climate conditions for the piano if I can. I currently keep the piano in the lounge but have started to teach the piano so it would easier for me to have it in the conservatory. My question therefore would be is it OK for the piano to be in very warm, very cold rooms? Obviously in the wintertime the heating would be on but there would be times when it will be freezing out there with no heating. Any advice you can give would be very appreciated.
 
Many thanks
Katrina

temperature changes in the same way acoustic
pianos do… so it’s fine for it to be situated in a hot
or cold room.

But…

Please be wary of condensation. This might cause
a problem with the electronics. Also, it is advisable
to keep it at least 4 inches away from a radiator.

"Our only concerns with the Broadway are the Warranty and repairs"

Is the warranty through the manufacturer or through UK Pianos and also with us being on the Isle of Man we are concerned that should we have a problem with it or need a repair doing, that there is no one on the Island to do so, can you tell us were we would stand should this occur.
 
We read through your do's / don'ts this morning and had narrowed the choice to the Broadway B1 as you've suggested or the Yamaha YDP142. The price on the Broadway is very competitive, but we keep coming back to the 'what if ' worry.
 
I look forward to hearing from you in reference to shipping costs and hope that you can help us out with our above concerns.
 
Kind Regards

The warranty is with ourselves.

I understand your concern because of the remote
place you live, but if you have a warranty claim
then we'd probably send you out a replacement piano
rather than send a technician from the main land.

The warranty claims we get from the Broadway B1
are less than 1%. It is very well made, and the
packaging is strong. So I can’t foresee any issues.
But, if you do, you have my word we'll sort things out.

Hi Graham, the information in your digital piano buyer's guide was invaluable and stopped us making a mistake in our choice of digital piano.

We are going to buy the broadway b1, it is for Harley our seven year old son to play.

Many thanks
Amanda

Hi Graham,

Thank you for your advice which has really been helpful and your quick response.
We will be buying the Broadway B1 for our son as this sounds like the better choice to learn the piano on.

Thank you once again.

Hi Graham,

My budget is very limit so I was looking for a Broadway B1, however I really want a harpsichord voice.

Many Regards
Sarah

Reply/ Hi Sarah

Although the Broadway B1 doesn’t have the
harpsichord as a main sound immediately
accessible on the piano, it is one of the GM sounds.

This means you can get the harpsichord sound
by connecting to a computer.

The harpsichord sound can then be programmed
into the piano so it’s available for you anytime.

The Broadway B1 has a total of 128 GM sounds
than can easily be accessed by simply connecting
to a computer through the USB slot on the piano.

Yours pianistically,

Graham Howard

Hi Graham,

Thank you for your advice. I would certainly consider getting the broadway B1 as it has great reviews and although just over budget could last us a longer time and serve us well.

Dear Graham,

I found your howard score helpful – and I'm fairly sure by now that it's the Broadway B1 I want. I now only need to find out whether I can fit it into my room at university.

You have been extremely helpful, recently and at all times in the past, and such excellent service deserves endorsement. Thank you very much.

Dear Graham,

I bought a Broadway B1 as your recommendation, I found that it is made in Korea. I love South Korean products.

I bought a digital piano on Saturday. Thanks for the excellent advice.

Your shop was easy to find as well (thanks to my satnav) We have succesfully installed the Broadway B1 and it is working fine.
