1) "It sounds awesome and looks great and feels to me like the real thing"

Hi Graham

I'd like to thank you for the piano buyers guide I downloaded, it came in very handy for my purchase which was between the Yamaha CLP 470PE and the Yamaha CVP 601PE. 

I finally decided on the Yamaha CVP 605PE after going to a shop in morecambe, where I live. The salesman wasn't pushy or trying to direct my attention to any specific piano, which was what I was expecting and he demonstrated for me and my husband most of the stock in the showroom.

The CVP 605 is very easy to use and I'm having lots of fun at the moment figuring out what does what, etc. The keys have the graded hammer action which you can adjust to your personal feel which is a great feature to have if you come from a light touch keyboard as I do, I have found the standard setting a little hard on my fingers, there are 5 settings to chose from and are easy to adjust on the touch screen.

The guide function/performance assist feature is very good as you can follow the score on screen with its bouncing ball and lights above the keys.

I would definately recommend this piano it has so much to offer especially if you use an Ipad for your scores and songs and it comes with a usb mini wifi adapter which plugs in underneath the piano so no messy cables. It also comes with a music book, manual (which I would recommend reading) and a bench.

I love this piano, it sounds awesome and looks great and feels to me like the real thing.

2) "A very stimulating instrument"

Hello Graham,

We have bought a Yamaha CVP-605PE last weekend at Music Electronics in Lokeren Belgium, so far excellent service.  It will probably be delivered next weekend (it should have been today).  
I don’t know where the European Yamaha main stores are, not in Belgium as far as I know.

Our son wanted a keyboard from the beginning instead of a piano but we told him he had to follow piano lessons for the correct touch, etc,…  so he did.  
Now he comes back to us by saying he would like to have both combined, therefore we chose the CVP-605.  We have seen the instrument in different shops as well as on the internet:  it looks like a terrific and very stimulating instrument. We would like him to be extra motivated to persevere in his playing and we thought that this Clavinova would fulfil all his musical curiosities (with only a real classical piano, we were almost sure that he was going to stop, although he likes to play).  
I am curious if our prognosis will be correct.  

Musically yours,

4) "I am happy with my choice"

Hi Graham,
The yamaha cvp 605 has a great sound and the touch and feel is like a real piano.
It is just like you said in your e-book.
I chose this piano because I wanted a great pianosound and touch. I first had my mind set on the clp 470 but in the store I tried them both and that made me choose the cvp 605.  There is a huge difference in price but the price is usually the first thing you forget when you are happy with your choice.   
I was also very happy I read your book, that really made my choice easier and it also made me ask the right questions in the music store. Thank you for that.

5) "It has been a pleasure dealing with UK Pianos"

Dear 'Team Graham',
I first visited your Enfield premises with my 18yr old grand-daughter.

As with other reviewers I appreciated your unbiased help and opinions before allowing us the  unaccompanied freedom of your ground and first floor pianos displayed which my grand-daughter enjoyed sampling.  
On leaving that time without having made a purchase I was particularly impressed when your wife warmly said, "Thank you for coming."
On giving you my order the next time I visited, for the Yamaha model cvp605 I had settled on I updated the free stool included to a double/storage one.
In subsequent days your colleague Afsana kept me informed of the delivery date and later confirmed my requested delivery hour.
Yesterday (Saturday 8th. March, 2014) I was at the delivery address when the very friendly Neil & Steve arrived promptly in the hour arranged with the ordered piano.  
They unpacked and set up the piano and even waited whilst the new 18yr old owner gave it a test outing.  On leaving they took the large amount of cardboard packaging
with them and I am sure you will be pleased to know they could not have been more helpful.             
Finally, it has been a pleasure dealing with 'Team Graham' aka 'UK Pianos' and I have no doubt that in the unlikely event of the Yamaha piano needing an in-home repair
under your five years guarantee, my grand-daughter will receive the same impeccable service given to me.
