Console Pianos

The kevincharles furniture console pianos are actually compared with other studio pianos. Because they have studio sized actions, long keys and very long strings. The piano in the inside is the same as the studio only smaller because of cabinet designs and smaller casters. The piano is even rated as a studio piano in the Piano Book. Thus allowing you to have a beautiful furniture case without any sacrafice of quality.
