I can recommend Ben Wheeler Pianos wholeheartedly. From our first meeting Ben listened carefully to what we were looking for. He took into account the skills and ambitions of those who would be playing it, as well as our budget, and made several appropriate suggestions without any pressure whatsoever. We decided on a K3 and haven’t looked back. With three musical children, I think he found the perfect instrument for us! My sons both look forward to getting home from university to play it, and my A-Level daughter has found it invaluable to have a great instrument to support her studies. Her violin teacher loves playing it too! I played an upright Kawai as a child, and my memories have not been disappointed. They are responsive, easy to play, have a lovely bright tone and are very consistent. Having compared them extensively to similar Yamaha models, I would choose Kawai every time. They offer excellent value for money.
