It’s expensive but works great on my yamaha c3. It doesn’t scratch my stand and have ample room for various music books and binders. When only the lamp is on, it lights up only half the keys. So if you are playing in a dark room and have the lamp on, you can read your music but you will have to fumble to find your black keys on the piano. I don’t know if there are lamps out there that will fully light up all keys and not glare into your eyes. It’s the best so far and it looks great. The light is adjustable and you can turn it more towards you or away from you. I’m saving up to get another one for my other grand and have recommend this lamp to many of my students. Sure wish there are perks out there where teachers get discount when students purchase a lamp.
This is a really beautiful light to enhance a beautiful baby grand piano. However, be forewarned that the instructions for assembly are woefully inadequate. You will receive a single schematic drawing with numbers and few words that actually instruct on how to assemble. Luckily, i am married to an engineer, so he figured it out, but others may not be so lucky. Also, when the dimmer switch is attached (which it must be for the lamp to work), it has nowhere to firmly attach to the lamp, just hangs behind the music stand and lamp. If you’re not careful, that could result in the switch hanging down on the strings, causing a vibration when the piano is played. I have written the company to complain about the lack of assembly instructions and to suggest that a fix for the dimmer switch might be to have it simply clip to one of the rear arms of the lamp. All this being said, i still believe this to be one of the very best piano lamps i have ever found, and i’ve been looking for many years.
I both love and hate this light. I like that the light is perfectly bright, and the design is quite beautiful. I don’t like that it’s too short. The music stand on my steinway grand, onto which the light is clamped, is 9” tall. When the light is clamped in place, the top of the arch is 19” high, and the light itself is only 12. 5” above the base of the music stand. That’s not quite enough room to turn the pages of a standard size music book. And so, i had to clamp the light about an inch higher on the music stand in order to turn the pages without hitting the light. It makes the light less stable, more top-heavy. When i take a book off the music stand, the whole light falls forward.
Excellent match black matte and brass accents to our yamaha g3. We were considering having can lights installed above the piano, the separate stand piano lights were hard to manage in the limited space, this puts light right in the right place, the 22″ covers both pages of our ancient piano scores. My wife has piano glasses with specific focal length and this is incredibly better lighting , also not the heat from the bulbs as with other types the led is great and it is light enough to not stress the book rack with it’s weight. The brass accents match the brass pedals and trim on the grand. Used silk to insert into clamp, the padding seemed a little rough.

This is just the perfect piano lamp. The light from the leds is very smooth and the width of the available light is ample, making it easy to read your music in dim light while you play. There are no gaps in the lighting which is not the case in some other lamps for grand pianos. The style of this lamp is very elegant, not heavy looking at all, and everyone immediately admires it the minute they see it. When you have a gorgeous grand piano, it is great to have a lamp that lives up to the beauty of the instrument, and this one does. It is a little pricy, but less so than that other piano lamp that looks similar to it, but save up if you have to, it is worth every dime. You won’t regret buying it, but you will regret it if you don’t.
This is a top notch lamp and really protects the piano with heavy weight felt. If you’re worried about scratching your piano, don’t be. This will not harm your beautiful finish. The led lights are bright, yet can be adjusted to the user’s preference.
I’m torn between 4 and 5 stars. I comparison shopped piano lights for nearly a year before finally settling on this one and i’m so glad i did. I’ll start with the bad and then talk about the good. The bad:-i wish it was available in more finishes or colors. My piano has a satin finish so it would have been nice to be able to get the same effect on the light, but this is a minor complaint. The good:-this light is awesome. It easily illuminates 4 pages of music side by side. -led lighting means no fluorescent flicker or hum. -it comes with an optional dimmer switch if the light is too bright. I ended up just not using it, but it’s a nice little extra to have if you need it.
As others have said, annoying dimmer and cable. Cord from dimmer not long enough to allow dimmer to be placed anywhere but behind the music rack, which makes it hard to reach. The cord is not controlled in any way and falls down on the dampers. There is what appears to be a mounting eyelet on the dimmer, but it is on the front, knob side of the dimmer, making it impossible to use to mount to anything. Dimmer should have been mounted on light poles to make it easily accessible. Lacking this, a longer cable would have at least gotten dimmer out from behind music rack. Please use test products in real-life situation before making ridiculous designs that are awkward and require work-arounds.
First, it arrived in a day (and i don’t have amazon prime). Also, this is likely one of the few led lamps that is adjustable. As a concert pianist, i don’t want to be limited to having the lamp neck completely immobile. In addition, i purchased this lamp based on the cord length, which is plenty long.
I think this is a very good light for my grand piano as it also illuminates the whole keyboard. There is absolutely no glare. However, the dimmer switch is very poorly designed, as it plugs in to the bottom back portion of the clamp. The box would be left hanging behind the music rack and you would have to reach over the music rack to change the dimmer switch. It works fine on full power, and can be plugged in without the dimmer switch. The music is very easy to read, even with older eyes, and the lamp switch turns on at the end of the lamp itself. . I like the felt feature in the clamp, as it keeps it from scratching the music rack. I would recommend this lamp, and the price is fairly reasonable.
This lamp is just perfect for our small grand piano. We have a satin finish black piano with unlacquered brass hardware. I was worried it would be better for the more common high gloss and lacquered hardware but it really goes perfectly. This light is solid, and well made, casts a very even broad light via many leds that are not harsh at all. I initially thought it was a bit expensive but after seeing and using it i have realised it is well worth the money, especially when you consider what you paid for your piano. Highly recommended without reservation if you want a quality looking item. It is subtle and thin and you almost don’t even notice it there – better than free standing lamp in my opinion as it just looks like it is part of the piano. Nothing about it feels cheap or flimsy.
This lamp fit the piano perfectly and now i can see. I was using a lamp with a base and it reached over the music from the side of the grand piano — it never was adequate and it got in the way. This lamp fits on to the music stand and can be adjusted high enough to turn pages easily. The light is a bright golden glow. It is very bright but not the color of light that blinds you.
I’m generally happy with this lamp, with one major reservation that may not bother everyone. First, the good points: the illumination is superb: bright, a pleasing color of light, and the lamp is plenty high and wide enough for big scores. Second, the lamp itself is well made with quality materials. The downside: an inexplicably cheap and awkward external dimmer switch that must be attached separately. The dimmer’s absurdly short attachment leads means it is stuck behind the music desk, requiring me to stand up and awkwardly reach behind to adjust the brightness. A longer dimmer cord would let me position it much more conveniently. If you don’t want to use the dimmer, you don’t have to attach it and this will not be an issue, but i do like to adjust the brightness for different times of day. I’ll be keeping the lamp and i think i will enjoy it, but for $228 i can’t give it 5 stars with this flaw.
I purchased this light for my steinway m grand piano. It has a dimmer but is not on the switch. After installing the light, you must reach behind the music stand to reach the dimmer. The switch for the light is conveniently located on the right side end of the lamp. The only issue for is that it is not tall enough to clear my sheet music pages. It works but when i turn the pages, they hit the lamp. I’m keeping the lamp for now and will see how much of an issue this becomes. So far, it is a little annoying but manageable. Maybe it is an issue with only steinway grands as i did not see anyone else comment on this issue before i purchased.
I couldn’t be happier with this cocoweb 22 adjustable energy efficient led light. I have been playing the piano (not very well, but assiduously) for 55 years. Since i got my grand piano 16 years ago, i have tried two desk-top lamps and two led-light piano lamps; none of them was really satisfactory at the seemingly simple task of lighting two 8. 5 x 11″ pages of sheet music. I knew i needed a better solution. I kept trying to save money by buying the ~$50 lamps, but they were always too dim. This lamp more than adequately lights two pages of sheet music, even for old eyes. Don’t waste your money on the cheaper solutions. And don’t worry about the other reviews of this lamp that criticize the dangling dimmer. It is really no big deal; it’s solvable.
10/22/18 update: customer service was excellent and very responsive to my two inquiries. However, i declined it after i solved the problem myself and decided to simply plug the light into a wall socket instead of using the battery pack. I still highly recommend this product especially in light of the excellent customer service, with the caveat that you might have to use the plug-in power instead of the battery-operated power. Fortunately, this model has both options. 10/18/18 update: after about six weeks, the light started blinking/flickering. I contacted cocoweb customer service and they determined that flickering was due to the battery pack, so they sent me a replacement battery pack. The replacement battery pack is defective (also not felt-lined on the bottom). Now the light doesn’t turn on at all, even though the light switch is in the correct on position and the batteries are new and installed correctly.
I read several reviews, but our experience was not very good. In short, lamp has several issues and seems not worth the kind of money paid for this (thinking it would be more satisfactory). As others have complained, the dimmer module dangles down in back of the book rack. There is no means to easily attach it without perhaps needing to splice / lengthen the wire leads to it. The clamp doesn’t seem to hold very well on the book rack. I got it fairly tight, but was reluctant to overtighten it. It is felt-lined to protect the finish, but it slides a bit. Also, our rack has a curved top edge and the clamp is rectangular so it doesn’t ‘mate’ very well. Our biggest disappointment is that the book rack has to stay in its rear-most reclined position (i. , book is angled away at the top from the player). Although our rack has 3 adjustments to angle the book toward the player, the weight of the lamp is enough to pull the rack forward and off the piano if rack is not set in its rear-most position (angled all the way back). We have been using a long-armed halogen lamp which sits on the piano and worked fine. May end up going back to that and returing this costly disappointment.
A suggestion for a quick fix of the dimmer: in general, the design issues that the other reviewers had could be resolved if the company thought about it a bit, but going back to the drawing-board is probably not cost-effective, so don’t hold your breath. In my case, i took a chance, and it worked-out perfectly for the application that i had in mind: a light for my yamaha synthesizer. I solved the problem of the ‘dangling dimmer’ by using a dab of goop to attach it to the back of the bracket having the adjustment knob facing forward. It worked, and is now easy to reach and to adjust. I found the dimmer necessary because the light can be really bright and using a lower setting more to my taste. If i could come up with a quick fix as i did, i’m sure the company could easily figure a more suitable design if it wanted and save the consumer the trouble. But as it is, you just have to play with it a little (the cord from the bracket to the dimmer is a little short) to come-up with a configuration that works for you.
Initially we bought the 19′ conoco conoco piano lamp portable 19′ led piano lamp, black w/brass accent. That lamp, because of its design, (and the design of our yamaha c3 music bench) would not illuminate the entire sheet of music from top to bottom unless the shade was adjusted (rotated) out. And then the leds shined directly into our eyes. Instead of simply returning the lamp, we called conoco customer service and found out what a great company this is. After explaining the issue to the tech, he immediately suggested two other solutions for us: a 14′ lamp with a gooseneck arm between the lamp and clamp, and this 22′ lamp, where the radius of the attachment arms is about twice that of the 19′ lamp. We chose this one and can only say ‘wow’not only is the lamp more suitable because of the attachment arm radius, it also has a height adjustment which we’ve set to accommodate some of the larger page-size, antique sheet music pieces we use. The light quality and quantity is superb and because of the design of this model, it also illuminates the keyboard, without any light overflow into our eyes. We absolutely, without reservation, recommend this lampone final word about conoco: not only was the customer service tech helpful in understanding and suggesting solutions to our issue with the first lamp, he went out of his way to make sure we were satisfied. After making the decision to try this lamp, the first question he asked was ‘how can we do this?’.I suggested going back through amazon.
What makes this light fabulous:style. I love cocoweb’s style (classy and minimalistic). It doesn’t take away from my beautiful, new baby grandfunctionality. It lights up the entire area perfectly. The neck bends to wherever you need it. The light switch is located on the top right (underneath where the bulbs are) but there is also a dimmer switch (located on the cord). I like that you can set the dimmer to the setting you want and leave it there because it’s not part of the on/off switch. The clip on part won’t scratch the piano (because of the felt lining). I wasn’t sure about spending this kind of money on a light, but i feel like it was worth the cost.
I bought this for the organ at church. Works great, is visually attractive, easy to setup and install, excellent fit. The light is an excellent color and intensity. It surpassed my expectations. There is a dimmer control that just sort of hangs inline, close to the light fixture; it just hangs off the back. There is no mount for it, so it’s consequently a little unsightly, and it’s awkward to use/adjust because it’s unreachable from the organist bench. If they had just been farsighted enough to create a mounting spot, perhaps to the side, where the organist can reach it to adjust the light intensity, this would be a perfect device. Still, i like it enough that i’m considering buying another for my practice organ at home.
Very nice lamp, with one surprising drawback. For the cost, i’m surprised that this light doesn’t offer more height adjustment (able to go higher). My wife has a nice roland digital piano. The music board is fairly short, and the advertised ‘9 inches’ of height adjustment is deceptive, since it doesn’t take into consideration the loss of height due to the non-adjustable 180 degree bend at the top of the lamp. The real height adjustment range is much smaller. I have it barely clamped to the very top of the music board, adjusted as high as it will go, and there’s about 1/4′ of clearance for her to turn the pages. There’s lots of variations in pianos out there. I would have expected another few inches of travel in the height adjustment, considering the lamp is $228. More height adjustment and i’d give it 5 stars. My wife is testing her ability to play and turn pages, if the lamp can’t get out of the way, i’ll have to add an ugly extension board or return it.
