My son and I Visited your shop to try different pianos before making a decision which one to buy.
The salesman was extremely helpful giving impartial advice and pros and cons for each piano.
My son was encourage to play all the pianos in our price range and was allowed as much time as he wanted.
Having made a decision to buy, the piano was dropped off the following evening at our home address and was being played within the hour!

Casio PX870WH Piano


I had very specific requirements due to the size and colour of piano I was looking for, meaning in the end only one piano model was suitable. I phoned over 15 stores nationwide trying to find this model however no store had any stock due to the effects of covid meaning demand had outstripped supply. I found Keysound on the internet and thought I would give them a try and I found the guys extremely friendly and rather than simply saying they had no stock, they worked hard following our phone call by making some enquiries to try and get me the piano I was looking for. After managing to obtain one, it arrived within a day of posting and it has slotted in perfectly and is very popular with the family. I would highly recommend this company, very friendly over the phone, great to do business with and extremely knowledgeable.
