What is a piano lamp?
A piano lamp, also called a piano light, is designed specifically to light up the sheet music and the keyboard. A good piano lamp usually has an eye-care hood that prevents glare and helps reduce eye strain while you are reading the sheet music.
If a candelabra is too formal for you, but you still need light to see your piano keys and sheet music, you might need a piano lamp. A piano lamp is aesthetically pleasing, but its primary purpose is to provide illumination to the piano keys and sheet music when there is insufficient lighting.
A piano lamp can be a tall vertical lamp that sits next to the piano, but most people think of the most popular style, which is the one that sits on top of the piano. It can be ornate or plain, but all piano lamps are hooded to protect the pianist from direct glare. A piano lamp can be found in a wide range of shapes, sizes, and materials. For a piano lamp, brass, chrome, and other enameled metals are all popular choices.
he shelf piano lamp is typically adjustable, and many come with a weighted base for added stability. To add beauty as well as function, the base could be made of a high-quality material like marble. A counter-weighted arm on a piano lamp is a useful feature that keeps the lamp from becoming top heavy regardless of its position.
Piano lamps can be powered electricity or batteries, and some even clip onto the sheet music. One or two 40-watt or less light bulbs are typically used in an electric piano lamp.
