Our modern world is evolving at a crazy pace – and everything from food to cars has become smaller, smarter and faster. Convenience and adaptability are at the order of the day, and products across the world have been designed and redesigned to meet the average consumer’s needs in this regard.
The piano, invented somewhere in the late 1600s by a gentleman named Bartolomeo Cristofori, has also come a long way since its inception. From grand old instruments played by Bach, Beethoven, and Brahms, to more modern keyboards, digital pianos, and synths used by Bieber, Bon Jovi, and Billy Joel… But, the evolution of the piano is far from over, as the recent introduction of roll-up pianos proves.
Roll up pianos are lighter and easier to carry around due to their roll up keyboards. Portability is great, but their piano-like characteristics and excellent sound qualities are just as phenomenal. Sure, a roll up piano is not a baby grand – but it is much more than a silly toy.
Still skeptical? In this article, we’ll explain the design elements and benefits that make the roll up piano one of the best musical inventions of our time, before visiting the electronic malls to window shop and review some of the best roll up pianos on the market today.
