I occasionally look at the Costco (Canada) website to see what they have for digital pianos.

Today I see just 10 models available; there are usually something closer to 30 on there.

Which makes me wonder if more people are buying these things or if they're just not restocking them.

Numerous factory shutdowns around the world, and additional stress on the shipping companies is probably more to blame than anything else. Although there definitely has been an uptick in interest in digital pianos among people who I know that don't play, or haven't played in a long time.

Not just pianos. A lot of stuff is out of stock. Factories closed, logistics and customs under stress...

Or new models are coming in and the old models are being cleared out smile

I suspect it could be a combination of all 3.

I'm thinking a combination of all 3 too. I was looking at Wind Controllers and while looking over the week I noticed that some of the sites sold out. So I think people stuck at home brought some musical instrument to occupy the time. Almost pulled the trigger from Sweetwater with the 48 month equal finance option but the one I was looking at sold out. I always wanted to mess around with one. Roland's new simple Aerophone with recorder keys got my attention as did the Akai EWI wind controller.


All these years playing and I still consider myself a novice.
