Digital Pianos, also known as Electric Pianos, are developing faster than ever before. With names like Yamaha Pianos, Casio Pianos and Roland Pianos producing new models all the time, digital pianos are one of the most versatile and exciting musical instruments currently available.
Electronic instruments duplicate piano sounds. Unlike acoustic pianos, they have no hammers, no strings and no soundboard to produce the sound you hear. Instead, they have electronic sound chips and speakers and ‘replay’ the sound of a recorded piano.
Digital pianos usually have an array of features that make them attractive such as:

Some Piano manufacturers such as Yamaha, produce pianos which aim to combine some of the advantages of both Acoustic & Digital Pianos.
An example of this are the Yamaha Silent Pianos range, which feature a selection of their most popular Acoustic Upright & Grand Pianos that have been converted to also be played whilst wearing headphones without sound emitting acoustically.
Used by players such as Jamie Cullum, HJ Lim & Bert Smorenberg, the digital section of the Silent Pianos is said to sound as close as possible to playing acoustically.
Rimmers Music also offers a comprehensive piano tuning service, through our own piano technician. We recommend that your piano is tuned at least twice a year.
