Purchased on the web, the piano was delivered on the agreed date. It was the best packaged product I have ever received. My wife and I assembled it in an hour. A solid piece of furniture, beautifully constructed, the piano is a delight. It did take a while to flatten the packaging and to dispose of it!!
Overall, I could not be happier with the service and the product. Thank you.
Easily assembled and I was ready to play .Having just had to "skip" my 90 year old Challen Baby Grand I was really worried. I had done days of research on Graham's web site and decided that Yamaha407 would be my choice here was the moment of truth. I switched on, pressed Grand Piano2 , Normal and Room and played. I was in tears it was so wonderful. There is no better review than that and I now look forward to many more years of playing. Thanks.
I downloaded Graham's very extensive guide to buying a Digital Piano. We decided which one we wanted and went to the showroom to see it. The staff were very helpful and we had bought our Broadway B1 in no time at all. Lots of pianos to try and all the staff were friendly and helpful. There was no hard sell. They worked to our budget and the whole experience was well worth the trip. I would recommend going to the showroom. Thank you UK pianos!
Hi Graham, just wanted to thank you for your advice and assistance in choosing a digital piano that is right for me. You pointed out things to look out for that I would never have considered! You also compared the two similar pianos, the Yamaha YDP162 and the Roland 301 which has helped me to make my decision. I have decided the Yamaha is the one for me . I hope to be in touch with you again soon to make my purchase!
The site has many useful information concerning various aspects of pianos. The book of Graham contains a number of useful hints and notes. Some of the user reviews though are a bit off.
I recently purchased a Yamaha Stage piano from UK Pianos, the price and deal was excellent including a complimentary stand and headphones.
The Stage piano (a yamaha P105) is fit for purpose with some nice piano sounds suitable for amateur dramatics rehearsals. The instrument has a nice touch and is lightweight enough to be moved around easily. Additionally, the fact that when you plug the output of the piano into a speaker it still allows you to use the inbuilt speakers as monitors is very handy indeed.
I am going to buy a digital piano,
and found several online guides.
The Graham Howard's "7 things you must know before
buying a digital piano" is by far the best guide I found.
It is detailed, and explains a lot of things which are
not obvious for someone who is going to buy a digital
piano, like graded hammer action or levels of touch sensitivity.
I got even more information when I asked Graham Howard
directly by e-mail, his answers are always prompt and exact.
The site http://www.ukpianos.co.uk/ is extremely helpful, and is certainly among the most efficient online resources.
Looking for a digital piano for 15 yr old son who has decided 4 guitars along with 2amplifiers a keyboard, a tambourine & a mouth organ is not enough musical instruments for him!! Thinking of getting a Broadway B1 What a wonderful help the Howards bible is helped us understand things a lot better CVCC and the Howard score with p r ices info was invaluable plus aving Graham at the end of emails or the phone to help and advise is totally awesome. Thank you for all your help
I needed a keyboard for a local choir, to replace the trusty but dated Roland EP7 II that had served them well for the past 15 years or more. The budget was tight - it needed to be under £500 - and I wanted the full 88 keys, fully portable, with a good sound and realistic piano feel.
My first step was to consult Graham Howard's Digital Piano Bible to look at the options. I went for the Yamaha P105 from UK Pianos. It ticked all the boxes, and at £499 the package, including a few useful extras, represented great value.
The ordering process was simple, delivery was trackable and bang on schedule, and I used the piano at rehearsal the following evening with great success. I was very pleased with the outcome and I think this instrument will now last the society for a good few years to come.
Brilliant advice covering all the major brands. Well worth getting in touch with Graham.
I was looking for some advice on which digital piano to buy in a certain price range for a beginner pianist i came across grahams uk piano review & it helped me decide which piano to go for even though i did not buy my piano from uk pianos there service i found to be second to none it was impartial sound advice & i would not hesitate to contact them again for further help
( give yourselves a pat on the back @uk pianos i wish other retailers would take a look at the services you provide well done & thanks )

The information that this website gave us was invaluable. If played a major part in our decision on what digital piano to go for. Any questions are answered promptly and absolutely no sales pressure. Would recommend them to anyone.
Though I made it clear at the outset that I live on the opposite side of the Atlantic from Graham, he offered his personal help, along with downloadable reviews and guides, to make sure I had the information I needed to make a wise purchase. I would have been very pleased had I been able to give him my business.
Many thanks to Graham for his passion for his business and interest in anyone who wishes to play.
I was looking to purchase a new electric piano for live performances. The publication from UK Pianos was invaluable, not least, the advice to try out the various pianos under consideration. Living where I do, this wasn't easy, but having narrowed the choice down to two, and having sent off a quick e-mail, I made a trip, tried them out, and made a purchase!
Many thanks to UK Pianos; they are more than happy to sell you a piano, but are happier still ensuring that you purchase the right instrument for you, from wherever you buy it.
When shopping for a digital piano this spring, I stumbled upon Graham Howard's Digital Piano Buyer's Guide. It gave me excellent information, with both depth and breadth. And, above all, it was up to date.
I advice everyone who is considering buying a digital piano to first read Graham's guide.
I ended up buying a Clavinova CLP-440, partly based on Graham's guide, partly (of course) based on my own playing and listening in the store.
Needed help to decipher which digital piano would best suit my needs. Used the Howard Score, kindly sent by Graham Howard of UK pianos, which enabled me to find the best instrument for a price I could afford. It is concise and informative. His website is full of useful information and reviews which I found most helpful.
I'm considering changing my yamaha U3, which's a vertical acoustic piano, to an electronic one. I consulted the web and find most relevant information, condensed ina guide, very recomended to those who plan to buy o rent a piano. The review is extensive and scores are useful to compare between the huge amount of brands and models. Personally I'd like to get a yamaha clavinova but other options are good, depending of course on the money you plant to spend. Thank you for the guide graham.
I am new to piano playing but soon after starting lessons realised that I wanted a digital piano at home. I found the UK Pianos website and on it the brochure '7 Things you MUST know before buying a digital piano', which was extremely helpful as I really didn't know where to start. When I emailed the company with additional questions they were dealt with quickly and efficiently. I finally decided to buy a Yamaha P35, mainly due to price and recommendations from the brochure.
After some initial miscommunication, I had a first class piano delivered to the door by the most friendly company for my daughter's birthday.she promptly burst into tears when she answered the door as I had told her I had bought her a large canvas painting for her bedroom wall. The service offered by Graham is so astoundingly easy to afford that he made my daughter's dream come true a year early. She had asked for a piano for her 'Sweet Sixteen' a silly american idea...her thought was that she would give me a year to save as she knew pianos are not cheap. But thanks to Uk Pianos, it was affordable right now at £38 per month its less than I waste when I nip in my corner shop. And now I have been sent the name of a good book so I can learn on the sly and hopefully play a tune by Christmas. Well done Graham for designing a superb service :)
I am so glad I came across Graham Howard's informative digital piano review. Once I had researched and read it all, I decided to purchase the Yamaha 161. I felt I made a very well informed purchase and my family is now enjoying this superb digital piano. I also ended up purchasing from UK pianos as I searched everywhere and found the best deal online. UK Piano was able to match the best deal I found. The store was professional and efficient - I received my piano only a few days from ordering. Thanks UK Pianos - you have made me a very happy customer. I would recommend UK pianos any day!
Graham has provided a series of services which are very helpful when contemplating this expensive purchase. I have not bought a piano yet but would think that he is interested in finding the right piano for you rather than the most expensive/best margin.
I really appreciate the information provided and the assistance in purchasing my new digital piano. I am very grateful for the help and I am enjoying my new piano.
I was Google-ing the web for a day before I came across Graham Howard's page. As usual it takes a bit of reading and browsing before you get to the source that has your info. Graham's site is one of the handful sources providing in depth advise on a wide range of digital pianos (DP). More importantly he doesn't only discuss the current year models only, but provides vital advise on the older ones too e.g. pianos you can still come across and are often cheaper. Those are in many cases the instruments first time piano buyers get.
Graham also provides you with his book/ manual on DP that is likely the best source first time byes can find on the net. While many web, YouTube reviewers and sales reps give you an opinion on one or few pianos Graham uses a systematic approach to introduce you to the DP world. He gives you sufficient perspective to make an educated piano purchase. His info is balanced and without too much specs and numbers give great understanding about the evolution, history, options, price points of today's DP. Graham is also more than kind and replies to your e-mails when a specific question is sent to him.
Thank you Graham, your work is outstanding!
P.S. One discussion point, unrelated to Graham's book!
While reading the piano recommendations on the web people arrive to the realization that DP from the "top 5" or "top 10" list are the ones to get, or your piano will be "week". In my opinion beginners and probably intermediate students and piano players will do just fine with a piano positioned at No.12, or No.22 on the Best Piano list. Pianos that are "week" today were "Piano Of The Year" just 2-3 years ago. If we have to apply that to other things people buy: Cars: Does everyone drive a "Mercedes" or the "Porsche" - No. Cameras: Does everyone has a $5,000 camera in possession - No. How about a TV of fridge etc. The point is: People will do perfectly fine with a DP that's not on "Top 10 List". What matters is that they don't get demotivated and discouraged to play but have a decent instrument for practicing and improvement. The rest will come.
I now exactly know what kind of digital piano I need. Howard score chart is a fantastic tool, had never seen before such thing, because you can compare nearly all well known piano models in one shot with their prices.. So you can realise that how the same quality two pianos have such a big price difference.
It helps me a lot, check it out and enjoy!
Thanks a lot also for your helpful manner Graham :)
Graham's piano advice was so easy to read and understand - I am now in possession of a great digital piano that is played regularly, especially by my 18 month old!! Thanks for making the process of buying a piano so stress free :)
A really excellent resource when looking to buy new or used pianos. Thanks
I live in Canada, near Toronto and came across Graham Howard's site when I was doing research for my new piano. I found his site and information invaluable and I'm thrilled with the purchase of my Yamaha CLP-440 Clavinova. Thank you.
I could recommend UK Pianos to anyone who's planning to buy a new piano - no matter whether you're a beginner or a professional pianist. The staff is very helpful and friendly, there's also a great range of pianos to choose from, so I'm sure you'll find here what you're looking for!
I used the UK Pianos website and downloaded the online guide about digital pianos, which I found very informative and helpful. I was able to make an informed choice of piano as a result. communications on the phone were equally reassuring, and the piano arrived within a week, on the arranged day. Highly recommended.
I'd been looking for a non-furniture DP for a while and read various reviews of several. I was happy to find UK Pianos ratings and they would have helped me, but I came across a used version of a much higher-end DP than I'd been planning on - and that wasn't reviewed/rated on UK Pianos - Kawai MP10 - with which I'm VERY happy.
I was researching a new digital Piano and Graham Howard from UK Piano's really helped me out. His freely available material proved invaluable for researching the subject. I would have bought the Piano I ended up with from him, but he sadly didn't stock that model. Still that just goes to prove how impartial his advice is, that I would end up buying a Piano that he didn't even stock on his recommendation (and from a supplier he recommended too!). Graham Howard is a legend and therefore so are UK Piano's by association!
