The modern piano stems from Italy in the early 18th century and for many years upright pianos were a central focus in households across the world. They are, however, large, expensive, heavy and loud, and require almost constant maintenance and tuning. In 1986 Roland introduced the first digital piano and it wasn’t long before acoustic pianos were (literally) gathering dust. The digital piano’s technology is designed to emulate the sound and feel of an acoustic piano, while offering the convenience of a smaller, lighter synthesizer that could be played while wearing headphones so as not to disturb others. They also stay in tune. At Musician's Friend, you'll find today's state-of-the-art digital pianos from trusted brands like Yamaha, Casio, Roland.
