I bought the product for lighting the notestand on a yamaha N3 electronic grand piano. The power cable is reasonably long, but could be a little longer in order to facilitate better access to a power outlet from a piano that stands more than two meters away from one. The swan neck bends easily, but can not be bent too narrow. I would prefer a slightly longer neck though, it is a little too short in order to adjust it to the optimal height without sacrificing spacing to turn pages freely without hitting the lamp . Also, it is not easily turned along the axis of the swan neck. The light itself is very bright with nothing to be left to wish for. Also, there is no perceptible flickering and the foot is heavy enough to stand rock solid on the piano, even with the head of the lamp extended far over the base. K&M really seems to know hot to build things that stand rock solid on the ground.
