antique porcelain figurine lamps – Among the main accessories you’ll ever buy for the piano is a piano lamp. You may think that choosing a lamp to your piano is a simple procedure, with no many details to think about. But really there’s a lot to consider in order to buy a lamp which fits your needs, and the specific requirements of your own piano.
You may narrow your search by answering a simple question: Can you have a grand piano or an upright (vertical) piano? There is a difference between the type of piano lamp you would buy for a grand piano, instead of a vertical or upright piano. But there are also lamps which will work for both kinds of pianos.
Now you’ve narrowed down your search, lets discuss the different lamp options offered for a grand (or baby grand) piano. The hottest lamp style for a grand piano is a clamp or clip-on lamp. These lamps are created specifically to clip-on (or clamp onto) the audio desk (also known as the audio shelf or audio holder) of a grand piano. The clamp on these lamps will fit snugly over the top border of the music desk, and will remain in place by tightening the 2 thumbs screws onto the back of the clamp. There is not any prospect of damaging your piano because the clamps have an interior piece that’s lined with felt to protect your piano. The thumbscrews just twist the felt-lined clamp so the lamp stays in place.
These lamps offer you options as far as style, color, finish, lighting technologies, shade sizes, brightness, and energy efficiency. One of the variety of lamps offered for grand pianos are: LED Grand Piano Lamps, which offer many advantages including low energy intake, long lasting light, chemical and mercury free, non-glare light, very low heat light, and no bulb replacement required. Another variety uses standard incandescent lighting technologies, and has a 14″ color which swivels to a gooseneck. A third variety uses fluorescent lightning using a 22″ slim-line shade and a gorgeous contemporary look.
If you have a vertical piano, the best choice would be to use a desktop style lamp. These lamps are extremely similar in style to lamps which are used on desktops and table tops, however they’re more geared toward usage on the piano as nearly all of them use a double adjustment arm and a swivel shade so you can fine tune the management of the lighting in which you need it the most (usually onto the audio, or in some instances, the music and the keyboard).
Upright piano lamps also offer a number of variants and options such as: Different color sizes, different lighting technologies (LED, Incandescent, Fluorescent) distinct styles, colours and finishes, and different amounts of wattage.
There are just two piano lamp styles that operate on both the grand and upright pianos. First, there’s the Piano Floor Lamp, that has a very long cylindrical shade and a very long arm. The lamp can be put on either side of the horizontal or vertical piano, and the extended arm reaches and positions the color over the audio, lighting up your sheet songs. This lamp is sort of a combination of a vertical lamp and a floor lamp. It’s a strong weighted base like a vertical lamp, and a long arm and color that reaches to shine light onto the audio books. On a grand piano, this lamp would be placed on the piano on either side of where the audio sits. (Usually in which a metronome or extra music novels will break). On a vertical piano, this lamp would be placed on either side of the cap of the device, and the extended arm would reach the light over to the audio.
