May 2013

Turn your acoustic upright or grand piano into a silent piano that you can play at any time of the day or night without disturbing anyone! Your acoustic piano is not affected in any way, yet when you decide, you can put your headphones on, maintaining the feel of your acoustic instrument but with the features of a digital piano.

Come see the modern day PLAYER PIANO Just like the old fashioned player pianos with the keys moving before your eyes. Use your own piano to provide your favorite background music at your next dinner party! Best of all, controll it all from your iphone or ipad; create playlists, control volume, set specific times to play specific songs and so much more.

 

The music library is vast to meet everyones tastes and many of the songs also have additional accompaniment including vocals from the original artists!

BUYER BEWARE!!!

It has come to our attention that there are some used Yamaha pianos being sold in the Calgary area. A risk that exists for these buyers is whether these are "Grey Market" or "Wet Pianos" (Pianos not built for the North American climate). The sure way to check, is at the following link on Yamaha's website. DO YOUR HOMEWORK!!!! Get the Serial Number and check it for yourself!
