Can I also point out that you had run out of the free stool that was suppose to have come with the YDP162, and was pleasantly surprised when you had offered an even better piano stool at a fraction of the price! I would also like to say how friendly and good natured the guys that had delivered the piano were, not to mention the speed of delivery!

“She is delighted with the YDP162”
Although I never actually purchased a piano from UK Pianos (I had to select a local store where I could collect),
Graham was very helpful and provided much assistance, including supply of the guide “7 things you need to know
before buying a digital piano”. This guide was very useful since I am not the musician, I was interested in
purchasing a digital piano as a surprise present for my wife and the guide allowed me to have meaningful
conversations with music stores (a little knowledge goes a long way as they say!).
She is delighted with the choice I made.

“I am one extremely happy customer and I recommend Graham’s review and UK Pianos shop any day!”
Graham Howard’s review was excellent. It allowed me to make a well informed decision and I ended up buying a Yamaha YDP162 from UK Pianos as they were able to match the best deal I found online.
I am very very pleased as the customer service was very professional and efficient. I was able to receive my piano just a few days from ordering. It sounds and looks beautiful, my whole family loves playing on it – I am really glad I choose this model. I am one extremely happy customer and would recommend Graham’s review and UK Pianos shop any day!

“The Yamaha YDP162 has the feel of a real piano”
Thanks for the information in your digital piano guide.
I bought from UK Pianos the Yamaha YDP162.
I am really pleased with it. It looks great, especially
in the polished ebony, and has the feel of a real piano.
It arrived extremely promptly and although the stool had
wonky legs it was swapped with no fuss using your courier.
It was a pleasure doing business with you!

I purchased the Yamaha YDP162 from yourselves.
Fantastic service, ordered at about 11pm Thursday, delivered on Friday.

“The most important metric for me was the key feel”
Thanks a lot for the information that you freely provide. It played a key part in the piano that I chose to purchase.
Based on your reviews and your manual I know I might the right decision for the level I am at and the budget available.
I chose to purchase the Yamaha YDP162. I am new to piano and started taking lessons a few months ago.
I noticed quite a profound difference between the keyboard I have at home and the piano I play at the lesson and hence
the most important metric for me was the key feel.
I wanted something that closely models a real piano, but that still comes in at an affordable prize.

“I can’t believe how good it is”
I am extremely happy with the piano though I haven’t had as much time on it as I had hoped.
I found the information on your website refreshingly impartial and I tried some pianos at my local piano shop after following your advice I believe, to try out and see, and I’m so glad I did. If I hadn’t done that I would probably picked the wrong one for me.
At my local shop I could not get the 5 year warranty which was the most important thing for me – and at home service to boot! The piano stool and headphones was yet another bonus. I also prefer to buy from people who really understand what they’re selling.
I got email replies from you really promptly and also a quick and courteous telephone response from another member of the team.
If I hadn’t seen your site I probably would never have tried out a digital piano as I thought they would be a big disappointment compared to the real thing and I rarely get the chance to get on a real piano which is sad as I spent many hours since I was a teenager getting up to a decent technical level such as Mephisto Waltz, Chopin Etudes etc but now on a decent instrument I can work at other higher aspects of playing and can do it any time of day or night! Even Three Blind Mice sounds great and I don’t have to just play fast to get a thrill.
I can’t believe how good it is.
It’s given me a lot of encouragement.

“I ordered by phone on Thursday afternoon and received it on Friday morning!”
I received my digital piano about a week ago. Im very happy with that. Thank you very much for your advise through the bible book before by digital piano.
It helped me lots. After some weeks researched around i end up with ydp162 rosewood and i bought it from ukpianos, beside that i want to upgrade the free bench
to adjustable piano stool and you gave me a great deal for that.
I am also very pleased with your service, fast and prompt. I ordered by phone on Thursday afternoon and received them from TNT express service on Friday morning!
We were much more than happy. Highly reccommend this shop. Great advisor, great service and great deal.
Thank you very much.

“Thanks for the super service”
I wanted to drop you and note to say thanks for the information, the prompt delivery and a great piano.
It was straight forward to assemble (though definitely requires two), and has taken up residence in our family room. Mum and the kids are loving it, it sounds and feels like the real thing, and looks fantastic too!
Again, thanks for the super service. Have a lovely Christmas!

“It’s just fantastic! — I will certainly come back to you in the future”
I didn’t realised you had written the digital piano bible until after I’d made my purchase through your site (chosen because of the near unanimous glowing reviews from across the internet).
Fortunately, I’d already done quite a lot of research and tried out various electric pianos over the last few months so was confident in my choice of the Yamaha YDP-162 and, seeing its ranking in your bible, I am relieved to see you agree.
It arrived yesterday and I’m so pleased with the sound, the feel, the functions, the look… it’s just fantastic!
Fantastic service all round however and I know when I’m looking again in the future, I will certainly come back to you.

“I now look forward to learning to play”
As a beginner I had no idea there were so many things to consider when buying a piano.
During my searches I came across your website and read a few reviews which then took
me to your piano guide.
As a result I bought a Yamaha YDP162 from “uk pianos”.
I found the guide very informative and now look forward to learning to play.

“The service at your store was beyond expectations”
thanks for getting in touch. About the piano, nothing to say, it is just perfect for our needs. Me and my wife were looking for a digital (compact) piano, not too expensive but as close as possible to a classical one in terms of key feeling and tones. The Yamaha YDP 162 was our first choice after reading the reviews in internet (including the one on your site) and when we actually tried it, well we were not disappointed. The quality of sound and the keyboard are just like a classical one, at least that’s what my wife says as i am my self a total beginner. It also looks very cosy at home, no doubt we are proud of our purchase and enjoy playing.
I would like to highlight the fact that the service at your store was beyond expectations, thanks a lot to your stuff for arranging the delivery on the next day, it was really nice to have the piano at home so quickly.

“The Yamaha YDP-162 piano is very good”
Good delivery service that arrived on the day arranged. The piano stool was replaced in the absence of the default one upgraded with a height adjustable stool at the same price, kind offer of the ukpianos company. My daughters and I assembled the pieces by reading the instructions written on the box, and waited for my husband to tighten the screws and to fix together the two big final pieces.
