Yamaha pianos praised by Jamie Cullum

Yamaha pianos have been praised for their quality and durability by musician Jamie Cullum.

He gave the instrument the thumbs-up while giving the Guardian a tour around his west London studio.

Jamie has a Yamaha C7 piano, which was a gift from the company.

"Yamahas sound great, but the best thing about them is that they also stand up to the punishment I give them," he said.

"Other well-known brands sound great also, but they don't last as long."

The Yamaha piano was used on his new album, Don't Stop the Music, which is released later this month (January 25th 2010).

Among the other treasured possessions in his studio was a Casio keyboard, which was customised for the pop star by one of his friends.

Last year, Jamie revealed that he used to play electric guitar before taking up the piano.

He told StudentUK that listening to artists such as Ben Folds and Harry Connick Jr had encouraged him to make the switch.
