I visited because the shop sold numerous electric piano brands. I spent an hour and a half with Paul who explained the differences to me, and I tried a variety of different brands and models, which was a great way to find the one that suited me best. Everyone was very welcoming and nothing was too much trouble. The piano was delivered a few days later by Steve and Ria who were great and set it all up for me. The whole experience was outstanding.
