therapeutic heat lamp – Among the most important accessories that you’ll ever buy for the piano is a piano lamp. You may think that choosing a lamp to your piano is a simple process, with no many details to think about. But really there’s quite a lot to take into account in order to buy a lamp that fits your needs, and the particular requirements of your piano.
You can narrow your search by first answering a very simple question: Do you have a grand piano or an upright (vertical) piano? There’s a gap between the sort of piano lamp you would buy for a grand piano, instead of a vertical or upright piano. However, there are also lamps that will work for both types of pianos.
The most popular lamp design for a grand piano is a clamp or clip-on lamp. These lamps are made 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 securely over the top edge of the music desk, and will remain in place by tightening the 2 thumbs screws on the back of the clamp. There’s no chance of damaging your piano because the straps have an inner part that is lined with felt to protect your piano. The thumbscrews just twist the felt-lined clamp so that the lamp remains in place.
These lamps offer you choices as far as design, color, finish, lighting technology, colour sizes, brightness, and energy efficiency. Among the variety of lamps offered for grand pianos are: LED Grand Piano Lamps, which offer many benefits including low energy consumption, long-lasting light, mercury and chemical free, non-glare light, very low heat light, and no bulb replacement required. Another variety employs standard incandescent light technology, and has a 14″ color which swivels on a gooseneck. A third variety employs fluorescent lightning with a 22″ slim-line colour and a beautiful contemporary look.
In case you have a vertical piano, the best option would be to use a background design lamp. These lamps are extremely similar in design to lamps that are used on laptops and table tops, however they are more geared toward use on the piano as most of them use a double alteration arm and a cushioned shade so that you can fine tune the management of the lighting where you want it the most (generally onto the audio, or even in some cases, the music and the keyboard).
Upright piano lamps also offer lots of variations and choices such as: Various color sizes, different lighting technologies (LED, Incandescent, Fluorescent) different styles, colors and finishes, and different quantities of wattage.
There are two piano lamp designs that work on both the grand and vertical pianos. First, there’s the Piano Floor Lamp, that has a very long cylindrical colour and a very long arm. The lamp can be placed on both sides of the horizontal or vertical piano, and also the long arm reaches over and places the color over the audio, light up your sheet music. The second lamp design is called a Counter Balance Lamp, (Balance Arm Lamp). This lamp is sort of a blend of a vertical lamp and a floor lamp. It has a strong weighted base like a vertical lamp, and a long arm and color that reaches over to shine light onto the audio books. On a grand piano, this lamp could be placed on the piano on both sides of where the audio sits. (Usually where a metronome or extra music novels will rest). On a vertical piano, this lamp could be placed on both sides of the top of the instrument, and the long arm would reach the light over to the audio.
