With a depth of just over 26 cm and 29 cm respectively, these ultra-compact digital pianos occupy a minimal amount of floor space, and are tailor-made for today’s urban living environments. Available in Satin Black and Satin White cabinet finishes, the versatile CL instruments blend effortlessly with surrounding interior, brightening dusky rooms with vibrant musical colour.
