Compact upright pianos like the Steinmayer S108 and Kawai K15E are versatile pianos that are competitively priced, making them a popular choice for beginners, players on a smaller budget or those with smaller living spaces. They offer similar packages from two very different manufacturers, so we have put together this video to give you some insight to what differences there are.
There are some slight differences in the dimensions between the Kawai K15E and Steinmayer S108, but the effect this would have on the overall tone would be very hard to discern:
- H 110 cm x W 149 cm x D 59 cm
- H 108 cm x W 143 cm x D 57 cm
There is a slight difference in how the two pianos have been toned, with the Steinmayer being slightly brighter than the Kawai, however the difference is subjective and we would strongly recommend trying the two pianos side by side for yourself to make a final decision. You should also be aware that every piano is slightly different, no matter if they are from the same production line, so take every opportunity to try these pianos out and compare what you hear.
So if you are in the market for a compact/continental sized upright piano, you have two very similar options to consider. They are competitively priced and both come with a 5 year guarantee; the Piano Shop Bath also includes within that price your first tuning for free and free delivery to any ground floor UK address. We always recommend to come and try the pianos for yourself before you buy, and this particularly applies to these two pianos.
