“We changed from our minds from originally wanting a Yamaha, and ordered a Gewa DP300 piano blind”
My wife played piano when she was younger, but digital pianos were a whole new territory for us. We had no idea of what we were looking for. After an extensive search, for advise and looking at different models we came across Graham’s website. This was a game changer – we were able to establish what it would cost to get what we needed and cross reference this with the ratings and other reviews he provides in his guide. We changed from our minds from originally wanting a Yamaha, and ordered a Gewa DP300 piano ‘blind’ so to speak, and waited for the delivery. The advice has born out and we couldn’t be happier with the quality of the Gewa digital piano. The sound and weight are superb. Our four and seven year old beginners are as happy as our more seasoned player. We are also happy about the five year warranty that came with it – providing some peace of mind for such an important family investment.

“I’m considering renting the Gewa DP300G”
I am looking to use the rent-to-buy scheme you have for a Gewa DP300G as listed on your website. I played piano when I was younger and would like to get back into it, so thought this might be a good method of doing so initially to see how I get on! I am particularly concerned with the quality of the keyboard… key touch and the sound. Gewa seem to be highly rated for this. I have previously only considered getting a Yamaha. Not as bothered about bells and whistles as such, just looking to get something as similar as I can to the upright Baldwin I used to play.
Also – I downloaded the digital piano buying guides on your website.
“I want something close to the sound and feel of an acoustic piano”
Thank you for the book, it is very clear and helpful.
I studied piano for 3 years when I was in my teens in Italy and didn’t play it much at all afterwards.
Now, I am in my mid-40s and I am thinking of buying a digital piano so I can go back to playing (probably also by taking lessons).
I am looking for something closer to the piano feeling and sound, after reading your books, I imagine I will look for:
1. Fully-Weighted or Semi-weighted or Medium-Weighted
2. At least 4 dynamic levels
3. Probably wooden keys
Maybe a Gewa, or Roland, or Yamaha
I was thinking that maybe it is wise for me to rent it, so I can see if in the 6 months time it is worth it for me to get it.
and I saw for instance that there is the: Gewa DP300 G Digital Piano that is available for rent.
I could come by and see what could be suitable?
The week of 6th December is good for me.
What do you suggest?
Reply/ Hi Monia
I would say that the Gewa DP300G is a good choice.
This piano has fully-weighted keys and a lovely, warm
piano tone (sampled on a Steinway concert grand piano).
The keys are responsive enough to make it suitable
both for learning and up to a high level of playing.
I recommend this for you.
You’re welcome to come and see it in our Enfield shop.
I can also show you some alternatives.
We’re open every Wednesday, Thursday and Saturday
at the moment.
Hope to see you the week of the 6th.
Yours pianistically, Graham Howard
“What are main differences between Broadway BW1 and Gewa DP300G?”
Foremost, thank you very much for your candid counsel and advice. I went on and also read your guide book and arrive at the same conclusion of what you graciously suggested in a few lines.
Whilst on the page, there is a section about trading pianos in, but could not find any further information. Would you mind detailing a bit more about that process please?
Also, I was looking into a rental option and from there I have 2 further questions:
-If we go for a rental of a piano, and 6 months down the line we decide that we would prefer to have a different one, is there a protocol for that?
-Is it still possible to have a payment plan? So, if going for a rental and the 6 months are due, could we pay the rest of the balance in months as well?
Last, what would be the main differences between Broadway BW1 and Gewa DP300G? It gives me the impression that the later does not do the sensitive touch, so I cannot quite understand the price difference.
Reply/ Hi Gio
We offer a trade in on most pianos.
So, if you buy a new piano from us, then we can offer
you some money towards it. The amount depends on
the make, model and condition of the piano you’re
trading in. Also, the piano that you’re interested in
buying from us.
We would also need to know your postcode and if
there are any steps or stairs involved.
If you wish to change the piano you’re renting, then
we can do that only if the piano you’re renting initially
is second hand. This is because of the depreciation in
price of a brand-new piano… second hand ones
depreciate far less.
You can change a second hand piano for any type
of piano (new or second hand).
We don’t offer a payment plan after the initial rental period.
The remaining balance would need to be paid in full.
The main, and the only notable difference between the
Broadway BW1 and Gewa DP300G is the tone quality.
The Gewa is sampled on a Steinway concert grand
which gives it a warmer, more mellow tone.
Having said that, the Broadway tone is preferable
to some pianists because the sound is brighter and
perhaps a little clearer than the Gewa making it
more suitable if you want the sound to carry across
a large room, or if you’re playing jazz pieces.
Hope that all helps you to make a decision, Gio.
Let me know if you have any more questions.
“Are fully weighted keys would be more difficult for my 5 year old daughter?”
Thank you Graham, your guide is most helpful.
I have a few further queries. Now considering Gewa DP300 but wondered if fully weighted keys would be more difficult for my 5 year old daughter? Does this model have at least 64 polyphony and up to what grade would it be suitable for?
Reply/ Hi Sue
Fully-weighted keys are the same weight as a
real piano. So I recommend this for your
daughter to learn and progress on because
she needs to start off with the correct key weight
from the word go. This way she will learn to play
with the correct technique.
A fully-weighted key touch is not heavy.
And it will not be difficult for her in any way.
The Gewa DP300G has 256 note polyphony.
It is suitable up to grade 8 level, so you will
never need to upgrade it.
“Should I upgrade to the DP340?”
Thanks Graham, I was trying to find out if my piano has support for Bluetooth headset, which it doesn’t I know now. Hence, I was looking at all comparisons and what it would cost to upgrade to the DP340 or another.
For the rest I’m happy. There was one thing with the key speed trying to play trills. But I’ll try to fix with individual key configs or slightly change my playing.
Overall so happy that I did this.
Reply/ Hi Joel
It isn’t usually possible to upgrade a digital
piano on the Rent to Buy programme.
The reason is that the piano we delivered to
you is brand new, and when it comes back
we can only sell it as second hand.
So we lose the difference in price between
However, to help you out, if you could stretch
up to the UP360G after the 6 month minimum
rental period, then I can offer you a discount of
3 month’s rent towards the price of the UP360G.
I hope that sounds fair and is OK with you?
The UP360G is a much nicer piano than the DP300G
and DP340G. Its key touch is more responsive and
reacts much more like a real piano. It has an extra
dynamic level too. And the sound quality is fuller
The UP360G has a graded hammer action, so each
key is slightly heavier as it ascends. This replicates
very well the action of an acoustic piano.
Just let me know what you would like to do.
“Would the Gewa DP300 be ok for grade 8 level?”
The Gewa DP300G is a lovely sounding piano, but
might not be ideal for grade 8.
The reason is the touch sensitivity.
It lacks one extra dynamic level for really advanced playing,
so you might find it more difficult to put enough expression
into your music.
I advise going for the Gewa UP365.
This is a new model in the range and is superb.
Its key touch is very sensitive, the keys are wooden
and feel firmer, and the sound is warmer and more
natural than the DP300G.
You would never need to upgrade this piano.
I am interested in the Gewa, what considerations should we keep in mind when looking at second hand vs new? Is the warranty the same? It is hard to decide between them!
Reply/ Hi Lily
The warranty is 2 years on the second hand one,
covering all parts and labour and home visits.
You get 5 years with a new one.
There second hand one is delivered already assembled.
A brand new one comes in a large box.
“Why Do UK Pianos’ Prices Appear More Expensive?”
Most price quotes online are from retailers based in Germany.
Unfortunately, we’re not able to match their prices.
You might want to consider the following though.
If you do decide to buy from us, then you get:
A 5 year UK home warranty
Dealers outside the UK don’t offer a UK warranty.
If the piano develops a fault, then you’d have
to send it back to Germany to get it repaired.
The UK Pianos guarantee is for 5 years and covers
all parts, labour and unlimited visits to your home
if anything needs fixing.
A UK plug
We provide all Gewa pianos with a 3-pin UK adapter.
German sellers provide a 2-pin adapter because
the Gewa pianos they sell are made for the
Buying from outside the UK has the following disadvantages:
VAT, Haulage and customs charges:
You’ll be charged an extra fee for haulage if you buy from
outside the UK. There’s also a customs charge and VAT to
pay after the piano has been delivered to you.
This is sent separately by HMRC. We pay this on every
piano we import from Germany (it’s about £80 for
the customs fee plus 20% VAT).
I’ve had customers inform me that the price they
paid for a piano from European sites was more than
the price quoted on their website – often
considerably more. This is due to the EUR/GBP
exchange rate at the time of order.
The piano will not be insured whilst in transit
I do understand if you’re shopping around
for the best price. But I think that our offer
is more valuable because of the advantages
and peace of mind, Graham Howard, UK Pianos
