We make sure that world stars such as Alicia Keys, Sir Elton John and John Legend only play on the best instruments. To this end, we work with renowned partners such as Stoffler Musik and Yamaha, who supply our grand and upright pianos. In the latest edition of our backline blog, we take a look behind the scenes of the hire of these valuable instruments. Andreas Stoffler, owner of the traditional Basel family business Stoffler Musik, and Lukas Schellenberg, piano specialist at Yamaha, explain what is important and what special requests are sometimes made. They also show how live music inspires audiences to pick up an instrument again and why so many stars have relied on the Yamaha brand for many years.
