Dumb question does it have a battery like lithon ion inside the piano? If not what kind of battery is it exactly? I really appreciate the help thanks smile

I knew digital pianos aged and became outdated quickly, but i didn't realise it really made that much of a difference. Seeing as I haven't played on an acoustic piano before, I will be going to a piano dealer to try out some of the uprights they have

Thanks again. The store I will go to first has many piano's ready to be played and a man who works there who is an excellent piano player, so I can play as well as listen. The prices are indeed similar in the Netherlands. At least for Estonia and B

You are on the bit of the site which deals with acoustic pianos, so you were always going to get that answer. An acoustic piano is an organic musical instrument. You grow to love it. It changes and surprises you. You have to give it care and attenti

Your Contur upright and the Bechstein Academy 160 should have similar tonal qualities, as they are both made by Bechstein. The Estonia has a quite different tone, but play it yourself - you might like it. Estonia pianos might be a newcomer in the D

I am considering buying a piano for my 16th birthday, and i have a budget of up to and around £1,000. I have researched a few options, and I have come up with either the Kawai CN25 for £1025 or a second hand Kawai K-15e for £1200 which i am planni

I presume that one of the reasons that you are comparing the Estonia 168 and the Bechstein Academy 160 is because they are roughly the same price. That might be true in the Netherlands, but in America the Bechstein model sells for roughly 50 percent

Whenever I see these kinds of discussion (i.e. with a handful of people at most) asking for specific things, the first question that comes to my mind is how many people would actually buy the thing. Roland is a large company and they did not get the
