Keyboardist – for Keyboards, Synths and Digital Pianos

Looking for a new Digital Piano, Keyboard or Synth? We started out in music retail more than 30 years ago and are more than qualified to advise you on the best instrument to suit your needs.

If you’re not sure of the differences between instruments and don’t know where to start, then try our handy keyboard guide that outlines the major characteristics and best uses for each type of keyboard instrument. If you’re an advanced player then we are working with a number of the main manufacturers and are introducing a series of first hand product reviews. We’ll also be setting up a series of roadshows so that you’ll have the opportunity to try instruments before purchase.

A word about quality – there are some lesser known and cheaper brands on the market but in our experience these have tended to develop issues and break quickly, so we mostly deal with established manufacturers that have years of expertise and experience behind them. As we discover new trusted brands, we’ll introduce them to our pages.

We believe that everybody should have the chance to learn to play so from August 2020 we’ve started adding free piano / keyboard lessons. Check back weekly for the latest lesson!
