Our trusty Yamaha digital piano that has survived three Edinburgh tours and and has been bumped and dragged to countless concerts has, it seems, had enough.

Several keys recently stopped functioning entirely, and although open-case surgery has brought it back to life, the rigors of the road are clearly too much for it. It's time to put it out to grass and get a new one. We also need a protective case for transporting it about safely. A new piano plus case comes to £612 in total.

If you could help us raise the cash we'd be amazingly grateful. So we've made it possible to Sponsor a Note! If you could help with a fiver towards a new piano, then we'll dedicate a note just for you!
