Whether you’re a seasoned performer or a budding pianist and music enthusiast, having the right tools at your fingertips can make all the difference. It can take your piano playing to the next level. Imagine having a compact set of essential piano accessories in your gig bag, ready to support you in any situation.
That’s why we’ve curated a list of the top 10 must-have piano accessories and tools that you can’t miss.
A compact metronome will help you stay on beat and maintain the rhythm, whether you’re practicing or performing on a piano. Soundbrenner metronomes Core and Pulse redefine musical practice. These innovative gadgets offer a vibrating metronome that you can feel rather than hear, ensuring your timing is always on point.
With a contact tuner for precise tuning and a dB meter to protect your hearing, these devices also double as smartwatches to keep you updated. Make your practice sessions more engaging and goal-oriented.
When it comes to achieving the perfect pitch, a tuning hammer is your best friend. Keep it handy in your piano accessories kit to make on-the-spot adjustments before an important performance.
Rehearsals and performances often take place in environments which might be very loud. Ear plugs can protect your hearing and help you concentrate on playing your piano, no matter the surroundings.
Minuendo lossless earplugs are essential for any musician, even more so for pianists. They are the world’s first-ever variable passive hi-fi earplugs with stepless adjusters. You’re able to effortlessly slide between a range of -7dB to -25 dB protection. These plugs safeguard your ears from sound levels up to 120 dB without ever needing a battery charge. Adjust your hearing protection on the go, all while experiencing no compromise on sound quality or comfort.
A clean piano is a happy piano! Tuck in a microfiber cloth and a small bottle of gentle piano cleaner in your piano accessories kit to ensure your instrument stays pristine and ready to impress.
Introduce a touch of innovation to your piano practice and performances with Stomp, the #1 rated Bluetooth foot pedal designed to take your musical experience to new heights. This hands-free marvel allows you to control your favourite music apps with a simple tap of your foot. Built to last, its US-manufactured metal enclosure is durable enough to withstand any gigging environment.
Stomp features six silent, customizable buttons that provide tactile feedback, enabling you to swipe through chord charts or sheet music, and even start or stop your metronome seamlessly. Power will never be an issue with Stomp’s multiple power options; it runs for over 150 hours on a single 9V battery or can be powered via a 9VDC adapter.
Moreover, you can even charge your devices with its built-in USB port. With a 50-foot range and compatibility with any Bluetooth 4.0 enabled device, Stomp is an indispensable piano accessory that every pianist should consider.
Bid farewell to the awkward balancing act of holding sheet music while playing. A collapsible sheet music stand is a game-changing piano accessory that ensures your focus remains solely on the keys of your piano.
Not all digital pianos and keyboards have powerful built-in speakers (some don’t have any). A portable amp is a good choice for those who need a little extra volume to be heard over a band or other instruments. They’re also an excellent option for pianists who want to be able to practice or perform without being tethered to a plug.
Maintaining dexterity and strength is vital for pianists. Finger exercisers can be easily stashed in your gig bag, allowing you to warm up and keep those fingers nimble. You can also refer to our blog on effective finger stretches. Although it is written for guitarists, it is applicable for piano players as well.
A musician’s mind may compel him at any time and anywhere to set out his instrument and begin to play. In that case, having a stool in your piano accessories kit can be very helpful. You can just take it out of your gig bag, set up your piano, and begin playing anywhere you want to.
Whether you’re using an acoustic or a digital piano, the light is one of the most useful piano accessories you’ll find. Plus you can use it for all those late-night sessions studying your fun, fun, fun music theory books!
You’ve now unlocked the secrets to a well-prepared and stress-free collection of piano accessories. With these top 10 must-haves, you’re equipped to face any challenge that comes your way during rehearsals, performances, or those unexpected jam sessions.
