NAMM Show Top 3 Hot Items: Pianos
Premium Products: Yamaha CVP609
The new Clavinova series from Yamaha comes with much improved sounds and greater expression on the individual instruments so the easy play orchestration is realistic. Actual wave recordings, of say a Brazilian percussion section playing together, are used in the easy play accompaniments for astonishing realism.

Today we are going to take a closer look at what goes into a high quality Young Chang Upright Piano.
The best upright pianos in the world do not have any plastic action parts, only the best woods like this piano. As a result, it is a much finer musical instrument but still remains affordable.
Used Pianos have no manufacturer's backing with a warranty. Young Chang offers 10 years parts and labour warranty on this series of pianos and makes it transferrable to every owner, so when you want to upgrade, the resale price can be higher with a real valid warranty.

Today we look at the PianoDisc QuietTime system, featured here on this Young Chang Grand Piano.
The Pianodisc Quiettime System allows me to:
-To practice on a real acoustic piano but silently with headphones
-To print out the piano music I play
-To record the piano music I play and be able to correct my wrong notes upon playback
Underneath the keys of your acoustic upright or grand piano, a MIDI contact strip is installed connected to a box to connect any MIDI module or computer. One moves a lever which silences the piano so now you can listen via headphones or speakers to your [...] Read more
I would just like to let you know that the women at the desk who work on Friday and Saturday evenings are a pleasure to interact with. They are always professional, kind and willing to help.
Thanks for all your hard work in putting together this order for us. I really appreciate your help and attention to detail.... wanted to send you a note to say thanks a ton!
Just received my new Mahalo Uke! It was very well wrapped and arrived in excellent condition. Thank you for your fast and efficient service. I will certainly
recommend your online store to anyone here in Haliburton.
When we walked into Cosmo we weren't expecting the phenomenal service that Rob in guitars/ukuleles provided us. Through both our visits his expertise
and patience made a world of a difference in purchasing our Ukulele. Words cannot explain enough how happy we are of our service...
I just wanted to pass along what a great customer experience I had recently dealing with Maxim and Braden as I purchased a new PRS SE Custom guitar from
Cosmo Music. Max provided excellent customer assistance while I tried a number of guitars of the same model...
How was the Gig? Fricken awesome. They were very pleased. (Pro Audio Rental)
Thank you Ryan, for helping us make our event a great success! We were impressed with the equipment and tech. (Pro Audio Rental)
I will only be bringing my guitars to Cosmo for repairs. I have had an ongoing issue with my Banjo's tuning key on the high 5th string, and I believe
it was Braedon - applied a simple fix, re-strung it and it works perfectly...
Couple of things I want to share about how amazing Cosmo Music was this weekend in helping me with the wedding. To Ryan and his team. Couldn't have done
it without you guys. Jeff again was outstanding... (Pro Audio Rental)
Thanks very much for all your help! Cosmo continues to amaze; best music store!!
The staff is great! The techiy who soldered my '83 Schecter input connection was great! Prices are great!! The Larocca Coffee Kiosk is awesome..your website
is incredible!...what else can I say? I will continue to shop at your store...
I would like to give my heartfelt thanks to Anar who is always helpful to us. For the last 3 years any time, I had to re-schedule my kids lessons or any
changes in regards to lessons, She is always helpful and friendly. I cannot thank her enough for us to be ease at Cosmo School of Music.
This is the nicest music store in North America, if not the world, and you can quote me on that!

I'd like to thank you for the beautiful work you did on our Besson tuba - a young boy named Nash has played this tuba for the last 3 years and I decided
to put some money into it after looking at how expensive it would be to buy a new one. I can't believe the work you put into it - it looks and sounds
Jeff was a tremendous help and we can't thank Cosmo Music more for your contribution. The event went very well and we are extremely happy with the turn
out. Jeff was very timely and efficient and did an amazing job, we couldn't be happier with the result. Thanks again guys, we really appreciate it.
Both Tyler and John were very helpful in making this relatively large equipment rental go smooth as possible. And together with Tyson's patience in assisting
with the technical challenges - the whole experience was very positive. I look forward to working with you again for our future rental needs.
Got the merchandise, wow! That is quick... considering that I live in the country!
I recently had the pleasure of purchasing a DW performance series drumset at Cosmo last week. I was primarily helped by Derrick, Shane and Eugene who
were exceptionally knowledgable and attentive. I look foreword to my next trip to the store.
My Fender CS Strat arrived at my office this morning safe and sound. In fact, it got there from TO before I did on Wednesday morning! Thanks for all your
and your departments help with my purchase and many thanks to Cosmo for having such a great collection to compare and chose from.
I was in Cosmo yesterday purchasing a new classical guitar and student violin. Rail and Brianna both did an exceptional job guiding my purchases.
I want to thank you very much for rushing the repair of the clarinet I brought in on the evening of Dec 13th. You fixed it and had it ready for Tim to
deliver to Doncrest the next day, and the student could play it in the CONCERT on the 15th. So kind of you! I really appreciate it.
Bobby is an amazing guy and he was very helpful when I was looking around for a mixer when I actually needed an audio interface the other day, just wanted
to say a quick word of thanks!
Thanks for your generous offer I appreciate your excellent commitment to customer service. Sometime over the break on my way through TO I'll stop by the
store and drop off the instruments. Thanks for shipping the other stuff.
Special thanks to Rob for helping us to chose a great bass guitar!
You rock Rob!
Chris helped me a lot and was really friendly when I was trying out pedals and got my RP90 the other day, just wanted to say a quick word of thanks!
It was a real pleasure to visit this week. I have to say I was blown away...what you have done with your superstore is nothing short of sensational. I
recognized concepts from some of the best retail music retail operations from around the globe, but no one to my knowledge has put it all together quite
as you have.

I just wanted to say a special thank-you to Mike Gresko, our rep, for taking the time to bring in a new adapter for our keyboards today. He didn't have
to come, but he did. It's great to see him.
Thanks, John and Nicole, The trombones arrived safely and I'm very happy with the refurbishment work. I played a job last night in St Catharines with
the older one and I could feel and hear the difference. Good to have the tuning slide working properly too!
