Choosing Piano Covers To Use

By Edited Jan 21, 2016 0 0

Piano covers protect pianos from dust, sunlight and humidity. If you don't have a piano cover, your instrument will most likely deteriorate due to these factors, and repairing the instrument will cost you a whole lot more than buying a piano cover.

When it comes to purchasing piano covers and other piano accessories, there is no better place to go than to Yamaha. Yamaha is a world leading brand in musical instruments, and they also carry a wide range of piano covers as well. The company history dates back a hundred years to 1887 when Torakusu Yamaha founded the company, they began producing all kinds of musical instruments, plus protection for those instruments too. The Yamaha Corporation in Japan has grown to become the world's largest manufacturer of almost all types musical instruments, and a top producer of audio/visual products, semiconductors and other computer related products, sporting goods, home appliances and furniture, specialty metals, machine tools, and industrial robots as well.

Several Functions of Yamaha Piano Covers:

The piano cover will keep the dust from the piano and it will keep a grand piano sound board looking fresh. The cover will help stabilize humidity, plus it will give protection to your piano from sunlight. Yamaha piano covers will cause you a little less trouble when it comes to keeping the piano clean. It also protects your piano against major blunt force or rubbing trauma, as well as getting liquids spilled on it. Finally, it protects you grand piano from getting scratched.

Piano Covers also have fabrics to choose from:

The first one is vinyl fabric. Firstly, there are different types of vinyl. Some vinyl covers are paper-thin and they sometimes look like plastic. The Yamaha vinyl cover has the correct weight for piano covers. They're not paper thin, yet they are really that heavy enough to weight the piano down so much. Thick vinyl (the heavy-duty one) is not suitable for piano covers because they retain heat and humidity, which can put the piano out of tune. Vinyl is easy to clean, and it does not absorb water or stains. Vinyl can also be easily dusted or wiped with a damp cloth - or it can even be vacuumed. Spills can be wiped off easily as well.

The second type of cover is the Mackintosh fabric. This is a cotton drill cloth that is bonded with a rubber compound to a soft flannel. It is very durable and is suitable for pianos used for schools, churches and studios. However, it's harder to clean this type of piano cover in comparison to vinyl because it requires a vacuum to clean it. The cloth will soak up spills, and when a spill occurs, it should be removed quickly. If you want to clear dust from the cover, you can simply take it outside and whack it with a broomstick or anything hard.

There is also the black satin Taffeta fabric. This gives elegance and stylishness to your piano cover. It has a lovely velvety texture, with gentle satin sheen. Anyone who wants to add a little oomph to their piano cover should choose this classy cover.
