Professional Equipment

Pete uses a Yamaha CP300 portable digital piano which is a top of the range instrument used by many professional musicians. Without taking up much space, this provides a traditional grand piano sound as well as various classic electric piano, keyboard, Wurlitzer and organ sounds made famous by recording artists across the world. Where necessary, this can be amplified using a Roland keyboard amp or through a band’s PA system.

For special events where an acoustic piano is required, Pete has contacts with several piano rental companies who will provide competitive quotes for various grand piano or upright piano models to suit the venue.
