Mark Ireland Pianos Website

The up-dated website has been launched this Easter Weekend. There are a number of new features:

  1. New navigation layout
  2. Home screen now features products.
  3. Product pages now feature accessory prices (Customers can select accessories and see prices)
  4. The layout is now more mobile friendly
  5. There is a search feature  on the home page.

I hope this will make the site easier to use and more attractive. There may be some tidying up to do behind the scenes and further improvements will continue to be made.

DIGITAL PIANO BRAND CHALLENGE – Can you match clip & brand?

Listen to the audio in this you tube video- Which digital Piano should I buy?

So- you think you might know which digital piano brand you are looking to buy? It’s fair to say that there are many different parameters by which we can assess a digital piano. Here is a little exercise to illustrate just the one parameter: the tone of the default piano sound. Each of the audio clips in the video is a recording of one of the four digital piano brands I sell. The recordings were made directly as a line capture with near enough the same passage of notes.

A good pair of headphones or monitor speakers is more ideal to hear some of the nuances in the recordings.

Even if you can decide which you like best, there are many reasons why you should visit the store and discuss further the possibilities- each digital piano has it’s own speaker system, keyboard quality and other functions. Having illustrated and intrigued you all with this conundrum – perhaps you need to assess the options in person, rather than relying on digital piano reviews.

The quiz just shows how vast the variety of options there are of digital pianos- I can help you decide!

I have just tried the new ipad control interface app for Kawai’s CN25 and CN35 Digital Pianos. With an ipad in control the settings within the Virtual Technician of the piano can be adjusted more easily than through the menus on the piano itself.

Using a lightening to USB connector with a USB A-B lead the parameters change instantly. There is a screen for each of the icons in the top row starting with touch curve. The graphics are striking and easy to read and use.


The cables needed are shown here.

Some other apps can work wireless with a compatible dongle.
