In some ways my experience of buying a digital piano was not a good one (but
please read on). I ended up having to send my piano back, twice, for a replacement to UK Pianos before the third
one arrived, which itself had to be fixed by the engineer.
Nevertheless, UK Pianos itself was FANTASTIC throughout all these problems. They
arranged pickup and delivery of new pianos in an extremely speedy fashion, were always very pleasant and
informative and kept in good communication with me at all times. As I said, when the third piano arrived with a
fault they got an extremely professional and obviously very experienced engineer round to my house very quickly
indeed, who fixed the problem after a very thorough service.
I think the test of any good retailer is how they respond when things go wrong,
and for this reason UK Pianos gets a clear 5*. At no point did they quibble about any of the faults I reported, but
rather responded quickly and effectively. I don't hold UK Pianos responsible for the constructions defects of their
suppliers. They were brilliant.

I value your great information and findings about digital pianos. I have been
looking and playing for several months now, in Australia and also in Singapore while I was there on
Oh boy - I could tell you some of my observations.....I now hate Roland digital
pianos. I played many Yamahas - CPL and CPV and I really 100% prefer the Yamahas! I nearly bought the CLP - S308PE.
It is very good - but I was a bit disappointed in the over bright tone and suprising lack of volume. I liked the
CLP 340 - that was a good choice - but the speakers sounded slightly coloured. But still good - and better by far
than any Roland I played!
Our music store here in Melbourne tried to sell me the lastest Roland (Sorry I
don't know the number of it - but its the latest "thing" from Roland with built in speakers, not the VL) - with all
the piano settings and such....but....I played it and it had a great bass tone. However, it was as CLUNKY as ever!
The high notes in the treble sounded horrible. The top note C sounded like hitting a small drum! The action felt
clunky too... the end of the key was a very hard hit..the "aftertouch" made no difference. Pity - as this should
make a big difference. How could Roland make this and try to get away with it? I don't know.
Well, I have found a Yamaha CPV 405, with all the bells and whistles - rhythms and
tones etc...16 track sequencer.... etc... It has good speakers and they are in the front. The sound is very clear
and uncoloured. It sounds really good. Clear and full of tone and warmth. The action is lovely. I like it. So I
bought it at half price as it is the superseded model. A great deal! I will pick it up this week.
I will let you know how it all goes and how I rate it. I already have a 7 foot
grand so this digital is just for teaching on and for me to play arrangements and for sequencing. If it's not
perfect I don't care - but I like it better than any of the others.
Thanks for your help.

There will come a time where you gotta find find a piano fast for whatever reason.
You browsed the web and you came stumbling across this website. At first, you thought buying a digital piano was
easy, you ought to walk by a store and say "hey, i want that one because it's famous" not knowing that in spite of
its name and pricey tag, there's a LOT of alternatives which has also has the great sounding tune, the weight and
feel of a real acoustic grand and packed with a whole lot of features with a cheaper tag.
In ukPianos, they will show you all you need to know about digital pianos,
polyphony, weighted keys, features and comparisons. Not only that, you also get to have tips and some helpful
And one thing that really helped me and sorted out that made me decided finally is that a great help from Graham

I am living in Albi, France (having been living also in England and in Germany,
Finnish by nationality, so perhaps a "European" now). I greatly appreciated your opinions, ratings of pianos and
analyses in the document "7 things you
should know etc" - You are absolutely right, it seems rather
difficult to find neutral reviews on these matters
I think you do a great job with your reviews, they are very helpful - it is a real
maze when you are buying something like this!
I found your advice extremely helpful in choosing a piano for my wife. It took a
lot of deliberation but we got there in the end, mostly thanks to your honest and unbiased views.

Graham's Guide to Digital Pianos was a huge help when looking for a piano for my
daughter. It's the most easy to use and informative guide - we took Graham's advice and avoided making a costly
mistake. Even though we ended up buying a digital piano privately we wouldn't have had the confidence in knowing
the market without Graham's most useful guide.
