If you’re just starting out or you value practical design above all else, portable pianos may be the best option for you. Designed to be lightweight and easy to transport, modern portable models pack a remarkable punch and deliver excellent performance in a surprisingly compact package.
Typically, pianists opt for a portable model for one of several reasons. Portable designs offer excellent value for money, making them ideally suited to anyone beginning their musical journey and those looking for a reasonably priced second piano.
Portable designs are also coveted for the ease with which you can transport them. If you’re consistently on the move or gig regularly, it makes sense to purchase a piano that’s built for this purpose.
While you shouldn’t expect an authentic acoustic feel or sound from a portable model, many leading piano manufacturers have pushed the boundaries of what’s possible with lightweight design. Digital connectivity, multiple voices and excellent speakers are common features and you’ll often be pleasantly surprised by the quality of sound on offer.
At Bonners, we stock portable designs from the world’s most respected brands. From Japanese piano pioneers, Kawai comes the ES series. Boasting a revolutionary Responsive Hammer III keyboard action, the series represents the closest you’ll get to the traditional acoustic feel with a portable piano.
Yamaha’s P series is designed to provide you with full digital functionality, wherever you are. Featuring a range of voices, playback and a microphone input with digital sound effects, it’s an excellent choice for anyone who regularly finds themselves playing and recording in different locations.
Meanwhile, Roland’s FP series is renowned for its superior sound, sleek style and impressive digital features. Built-in Bluetooth connectivity allows you to stream backing tracks over the piano’s speakers and to connect to education and play-along apps, too.
