Because digital keyboards and pianos rely on sampling, they can produce sounds from different instruments. For example, musicians can choose instruments such as flutes, harpsichords, strings and percussion, making the digital piano or keyboard a very adaptable instrument. There are a number of advantages to playing the digital piano or a keyboard as opposed to an acoustic version. For example, they may have built-in rhythms to accompany the players. Also, because a digital piano is cordless, it should never be adjusted, which saves you time and money. A digital piano or keyboard also allows their users to enjoy the MIDI Musical Instrument Digital Interface, which means they can communicate, monitor and synchronize with other electronic musical instruments, computers and equipment. A digital piano can be relatively portable because it is smaller and lighter than the traditional alternative and can often be partially dismantled to facilitate its transportation. Players can also play silently by plugging the headphones into the instruments. TRUSTSCORE 4.8 × Select your country and language to see local prices and delivery options.

BodyHow to buy a piano – according to an expert 6 February 2018, 18:16 By Maddy Shaw Roberts A well-made piano that sounds great is a great financial and musical investment. But it can be hard to work out which model is right for you. So we spoke to an expert and asked for a few pointers ... Christian Blüthner owns and runs the Blüthner piano factory, a family-owned business in Leipzig, Germany. After years of welcoming pianists to his showroom, here are the questions he recommends you should ask yourself before buying a piano. 1. Do you like the sound of the instrument? It’s very important to enjoy the sound of your own piano, to feel like it’s speaking back to you when you play.  So even if you’re not a professional player, you should always sit down and play the instrument properly before thinking about buying it. Then, get somebody else to play it for you. “If you’re struggling with the key and the notes,” Christian says, “your mind is so concentrated on not making a mistake, that you can’t really concentrate on the musical performance.” So, it’s probably a good idea to listen to someone else play the instrument too. 2. How much space do you have? A piano is also a piece of furniture, so you need to consider whether you have space for it in your home. “I would always take a good-sounding upright over an average grand piano,” says Christian. “Sound is much more important than any decorative advantages you might get from a grand piano.” Once upon a time, people had a special room for their piano, so they would buy large saloon models which took up two to three metres of space. Nowadays, most of us aren’t lucky enough to have a piano room, so baby grands and smaller grand models have become a lot more popular. That's not what we meant by a 'baby grand'…  3. Who will be playing it? If you will be playing the instrument yourself, remember it’s important to be comfortable with it. “It’s not about showing the piano sales guy how much you’ve practised,” Christian says. “Even for beginners, the piano needs to talk to you, and you need to enjoy playing it, to take pleasure in your music lessons. You don’t have to be a professional pianist to understand whether you like it.” When you’re choosing your piano, try to play a variety of music within your range, and attack the keys differently to find out exactly what the instrument is capable of. However, if the piano is for your son or daughter, here's what Christian suggests: “If you’re looking for a piano for your children and you don’t really play – but don’t want to miss the opportunity to provide musical education for your kids – probably don’t start with a high-end piano, in case your child only plays the piano for a few years!” 4. Will it be in the family for generations? If you’re buying a piano as an investment to enhance your musical enjoyment, it might end up staying in your family for generations. “You don’t need to be a professional pianist to buy a nice, high-end piano,” Christian says. “We have customers who played a little bit in their childhood, forgot about it, went through their careers, reached a certain level, then remembered the pleasure they had from their musical experience. Sometimes, it’s triggered by children, when they’re at the right age to have their first lesson.” So, if your pocket allows it, it might be worthwhile investing in a model which can be used by your children and their children. Which leads us on to… 5. What’s your budget? Pianos that last a long time are now considered to be a great investment, not just in terms of cost, but in terms of the musical enjoyment, education and culture you’re bringing to your home. However, there is little transparency in the piano market, and instruments can cost anywhere between £500 and £500,000 (and sometimes, upwards!) – so it’s important to work out how much this investment is worth to you. If your budget is tight, some stores now offer down-payment and rental programmes. Or if your dream piano really isn’t within your budget, Christian says, it could be worth going for a smaller model. It’s better to buy a good-sounding baby grand or upright piano than a grand that breaks the bank. 6. Look out for this certificate . If you want to make sure you’re buying an original German piano, look out for the Bundesverband Klavier e.V. certificate (BVK for fun), known in English as the Association of German Piano Manufacturers. It guarantees you're buying a piano made by one of the top German piano manufacturers. 7. Get a second opinion. Once you’re comfortable with the sound, size, price and quality of the instrument, get a second opinion on your purchase. “If you don’t feel comfortable taking advice from a salesman,” says Christian, “Find someone who can help and guide you through your decision-making process, like a music teacher.” Buying a piano is a big investment, so it’s worth considering all these aspects before taking the plunge! Then, once you’ve found the perfect piano, you’ll be able to spend your evenings making beautiful music like this… Find out more about Blüthner pianos on their website.  More From ClassicFM . ‘Encanto’ soundtrack: all the song names and the Mexican-American composer behind the music.

BodyThe Top 10 Mistakes People Make When Buying A Piano Posted by Zach Marr At Alamo Music Center we believe that people unlock joy, fun and community through musical instruments. We love to help people find their perfect instrument the first time. We've put together this list of common mistakes we see when people are looking for pianos.  People stumble on their search for a piano when: 1)  They haven’t decided if they really want to learn/play - If you ask most people if they would like to learn piano or like their progeny to learn piano, they will say, “yes, of course!” But most people leave it there. One of the most common things we see is people who sign their kids up for a month of lessons at the lowest price they can find, and then follow-up with the purchase of an inexpensive unweighted keyboard. And while some of these unweighted keyboards are incredibly impressive instruments with robust features, they sometime lack the real feel and response that help aid the learning process. After a month, the child/student hasn’t learned a thing and $200-300 could have been better spent. We discourage people from buying if they are don’t actually want to invest the time and money to learn. You have to decide whether you want to unlock the secret benefits of music, to which there are many! 2)  They don’t understand how much a piano costs to move and maintain - Professional piano movers and tuners are expensive. Locally, it costs, roughly, $200-400 to move an upright, and factors such as stairs and distance can increase the cost. If shipping from outside your city/state, greater distances across the US might set one back as much as $700-$2000+ and can take up to 3-4 weeks. A grand piano can cost between $300 - $1000+ to move locally depending on the logistics, and the cost of moving a grand nationally is $1000 - $2500+! Want to save money by using regular movers or doing it yourself? No worries, but please be aware of the costs if something goes wrong. Every finish nick will cost about $150 per, a broken pin block renders most pianos worthless, costing $8,000+ on high-end grands and being close to impossible on uprights. Tuning, a necessity after a move, costs between $100-$175 each visit and should be done at least once a year, ideally twice. 3)  They under-commit with lessons or quality of piano - This is similar to the first point but a little more nuanced. You can do one right and the other wrong and you are going to render your proper investment worthless. We sometimes see people buy very expensive grands, uprights or digital pianos, and when we ask them if they’re taking lessons, they say they’re using YouTube, going to teach themselves via a book or have a friend teach them. Usually, we offer a teacher referral at this point, with someone whom they can trial, unless the person is fine with the piano simply being a piece of furniture in the house (believe it or not, this is more common than not). We also see people sign up for lessons with a prestigious teacher in town, paying $100+/ per lesson but be concerned with spending too much on an instrument in case lessons don’t work out. The problem here is that the $100s of dollars spent on lessons ends up being a waste and costs the customer more than the savings that were made on the inexpensive instrument. 4)  They use “Grandma’s” piano - Now this is actually not always a bad thing as a family heirloom piano can sometimes be of excellent quality, especially when music runs in the family. Often, though, there are severe issues with the “family” piano. If the piano has tuning stability issues, the player will develop a bad ear. If it is missing strings, it is impossible to play many pieces. If the piano action is broken, the proper playing mechanics will not be developed and/or strange playing techniques will develop to compensate for the uneven action which will make playing on other instruments difficult. 5)  They don’t ask for their teachers advice - Teachers are a great source of information and guidance. They also usually have strong opinions on what is best for the student because of their method of teaching. The improper instrument then gets in the way of the relationship between the teacher and the learning/playing of music. Teachers are also great at sniffing on a good deal or a bad one for that matter. 6)  They buy a used piano with a critical flaw - Much like points 2 and 4, you don’t know what you don’t know. A $500 piano on Craigslist is a really good deal if it’s indeed a good deal. If it’s not, like when it’s got broken strings, pin-block, tuning stability issues or action issues, you are looking at a $700-1250 loss (how so? Well, you have to pay to get it to your house, get it tuned and then, finally and sadly, thrown away...we actually get paid to pick people’s junker pianos and dispose of them...it’s sadly somewhat expensive as you can’t put them in the regular trash. 7)  They don’t get buy-in from their significant other - Communication is key. We’ve seen many well intentioned future musicians not come to fruition because parents weren’t on the same page about the value of music for their children. One did it growing up and the other didn’t, so one wants to do the “trial” version and the other wants to take out a second mortgage on the house. Usually no one wins here. The other situation we see is that the child is asked to participate in the decision and they side-rail the whole expedition because it doesn’t look fun enough. Teachers and music stores can be great partners and helping parents convince their children that music is a journey they will never regret. Unless, of course, they don’t take it and then they’ll be another person telling us about how they wished their parents would have made them “stick with it” when they were growing up. 8)  They put it on-hold - The saddest story I remember hearing was a Dad who saw us at an outside piano sale event and he told us that he remembered when he’d almost bought this exact piano for his daughter when she was in high school. He said, “Wow! I can’t believe how much more expensive it is now and I regret not having done that for her. She really loved music so much and she doesn’t play anymore.” He talked about potentially buying it for her college graduation but said he “still needed to think about it”. 9)  They buy too quickly - And then they end up with issue 2, 3, 5, 6 and/or 7. The pain, money, and time spent increases and regret builds on an instrument that should bring joy and build memories in your home. You don’t think about the sound factor of an acoustic piano and realize that a weighted digital piano was probably a better choice for your situation. You don’t think to match the colors to your furniture and style. You buy a digital and you really wanted the feel and sound of an acoustic instrument. This list can go on for days, but doesn’t have to with an informed and well planned decision! 10)  They spend too much or too little - You can buy too much piano and you can buy too little piano. If you have a 4 year old beginner, a 9' premium grand piano might be overkill. If you've been playing for 5+ years, a $1000 used spinet of $500 keyboard is going to hold you back as a musician and stunt your growth. The key is to make sure you understand where you are in your musical journey and where you want to go, so you get the right instrument, maximize your investment and save money and time.  Use this list wisely! There are many factors that should be addressed when purchasing the right instrument, and if you just stop and breath for a moment, the right piano will let itself be known. We would also like to point you to our  Piano Buyer’s Guide as that will also give you further insight into how to approach the process. Good luck on your quest, and remember , “Play A Note, Change Your Life!” Questions? Feedback? powered by Olark live chat software

Body3 Pieces of Advice on Buying Your Child’s First Piano Buying your first piano can be a daunting task, especially if you are not a pianist or musician yourself. It can be difficult to determine which piano to buy or whether you should invest in purchasing a piano at all.Contributed by Hiyori Matsushima for the Roland Australia BlogDuring my years of working in music retail, selling both acoustic and digital pianos, some of the most asked questions asked by parents (wondering aimlessly in the shop) were:1) My child’s piano teacher said “Buy a piano with full size, weighted keys”. What does this mean?2) Should I buy my child an acoustic piano or digital piano? What’s the difference?3) I don’t know if my child will continue playing. He/she may give up in 6 months. Should I just buy a small keyboard first?The questions above are reasonable & valid questions. So I’d like to share my experience and knowledge as a Conservatorium graduate, a piano teacher, and a music store sales person. I hope it will clear up some of the questions that you may have before purchasing your child’s first piano.Question #1: My child’s piano teacher said “Buy a full size piano with weighted keys. What does this mean?”. “FULL SIZE” Piano. A full size piano or full set of keys refers to a piano (acoustic or digital) with 88 notes. Many piano teachers will recommend the fully-weighted 88 note pianos because a majority of music examination boards will set these specifications as minimal requirements to take their exams.Smaller keyboards generally have 61 notes or 76 notes, mostly without weighted keys.  Beginners start off using only a few notes to begin with when they start learning the piano or keyboard but as your child progresses, the range of notes they use will inevitably extend. Having fewer keys mean that your child will eventually run out of keys to play and they won’t be able to play music that contains top end or low end notes – because the keys just simply aren’t there!“WEIGHTED” Keys. Have you ever played on a portable, light-weighted keyboard and then immediately played a piano? If you haven’t, I recommend that you try it next time you are at a music shop. You should feel a significant difference in the weight and response of the keys.The keys on acoustic pianos feel heavier to play compared to portable keyboards.  This is because when a piano key is pressed down, it triggers the hammer action to lift in order to hit the strings to create the sound.Conversely, portable (non-weighted action) keyboards generally have ON-OFF sensors under the keys to trigger the sounds.  You might also find that the length of the keys are much shorter compared to acoustic or digital pianos.In this image (left), you can see that when the keys are pressed on the piano, the hammer is lifted in order to hit the strings.The weight of the keys is dependent on several factors – such as hammers, action parts and how they are assembled.Most digital pianos with weighted keys simulate this hammer action very well and the weighting of the keys never change.The weighted action helps your child to build their finger strength.  For a child who practices on a digital piano with a weighted action rather than a non-weighted keyboard, the transition to acoustic piano is very smooth.  If the child is used to playing non-weighted keys at home, they will find the weighted keys much heavier to play and may struggle until they get used to the heavier keys.If you can’t tell the difference between a fully weighted keyboard and non-weighted keyboard, the best thing would be to ask the shop assistant – they should be able to point you in the right direction.Question #2: Should I buy my child an acoustic piano or digital piano? What’s the difference?Some teachers are adamant that their students should buy and play on acoustic pianos. This may have been the case 10-15 years ago when the digital technology was not as advanced and the ability to recreate the tone and touch of the piano in the digital realm was not as accurate. But the technology has come so far since then, and the difference between acoustic and high-quality digital pianos is barely evident. No matter what instrument you play, it is important to play an instrument that sounds and feels pleasing.If you sound good, you naturally want to play more – and the more you play, the better you will become!  Just because the piano is acoustic, it does not necessarily mean that they sound or feel better.  Acoustic pianos can be very beautiful to play and touch, but unlike digital pianos, they need regular maintenance to ensure their playability.Before you buy an acoustic piano, you need to think of your investment and ongoing maintenance costs.Tuning. Tuning is required on a regular basis if you want your piano to stay in tune. A couple of piano tuners I’ve met in the past recommended tuning every 6-12 months. Acoustic pianos can go out of tune simply from playing it. They can also go out of tune due to the climate (especially in humid areas – the wooden soundboard will expand and shrink in humidity, detuning the strings in the process) or if you move the piano. Tuning can cost around $150 at a time (more for grand pianos) – if you calculate the cost over 10 years, that’s $1,500 just for tuning!As the acoustic pianos age, the sound quality will deteriorate without regular maintenance.  Here is an example: Imagine an old Western movie with a saloon, with a piano playing in the background as the bandit enters the saloon.  That’s what people call the “honkytonk” piano.  The “honkytonk” sound is usually caused by the felt on the hammer hardening over time.  When you first purchase an acoustic piano, the felt is usually quite soft.  But over time, from repeatedly hitting the strings, the felt hardens. Unless you like the piano sound in an old Western movie, you may need to either replace the felt, or buy a new piano.  A lot of work is involved in changing every felt on every key, so this can be quite an expensive and time consuming exercise.Digital pianos on the other hand, never require tuning and the tone doesn’t deteriorate over time.  A digital piano will stay in tune regardless of weather/climate fluctuations, moving or excessive playing.Question #3: I don’t know if my child would continue playing. He/she may give up in 6 months. Should I just buy a small cheap keyboard first?As I mentioned above about building finger strength, I personally think that all beginners should start on a fully weighted 88-note piano.  If you are worried that your child might not continue with the piano due to other commitments or lack of interest, there is always the option to hire a piano first to test the water.Choosing to purchase budget priced instruments can often mean that they are inferior in quality and learning on them can have devastating effects on a child’s musical development.My personal true story…. I grew up playing an acoustic upright piano. I purchased my first digital piano when I moved interstate. A digital piano was far more practical as I was renting an apartment.  Having a digital piano meant that I could practice at any time of the day or night without worrying about the neighbours.  The first digital piano I purchased was the ‘cheapest possible’ 88 note weighted digital piano.To be honest, I didn’t think that it would make THAT much of a difference, as long as the piano had 88 notes and had weighted keys. But I was wrong!I didn’t like the touch, I didn’t like the sound and I didn’t feel inspired to practice. I then upgraded to a far better quality digital piano.  Yes, it cost more but it gave me a far better playing experience and I continued to appreciate the better sound & touch of a better quality instrument.There is no substitute for quality…. The quality of the instrument can impact on the person’s enthusiasm to play. It’s just like driving a nice, brand-new vehicle versus an ‘old bomb’ with no power-steering and no air conditioner. If you have a nice instrument you will want to play it more… and show it off!Everyone has their own opinions about acoustic pianos vs digital pianos. I don’t believe that there is a right or wrong answer here. It better to play on a good quality 88-note weighted digital piano than an acoustic piano that is out of tune.  Just because the piano is acoustic, it does not mean that it is a better piano.  When you are learning the piano, you need to build your aural skills. How can a child learn the correct pitch if the piano is out of tune?I hope this article will help you in choosing the suitable instrument for your child. A good instrument will be enjoyable to play for many years to come!Related Articles.

BodyThe Ultimate Guide to Buying a Digital Piano Lucas Welter Last Updated: January 21, 2021 Tips & Guides, Digital Piano Guides The world of pianos – especially digital pianos – can be very confusing and overwhelming, not only for beginners but also for seasoned musicians! Today we’re going to answer most (if not all) of the questions that may pop into your head when you’re looking for the “perfect” digital piano. In this guide, we’ll cover all the important things you should know before buying a digital piano or keyboard. Though I do believe that no digital piano is perfect, this guide will help you to better understand how to pick the instrument that’s right for YOU and to narrow your options to 1-2 models that suit you the best. People often fail to do proper research, choosing instead to rely on the product with the most Amazon reviews. While this may work with some products, it doesn’t work with digital pianos. The reason is that digital pianos are complicated machines, and there are many important factors you need to consider to ensure you’re making the right decision. What make things even worse is that there are many unreliable online resources (not pointing fingers here) that write about this topic without having any experience with digital or acoustic pianos whatsoever. This results in a ton of misleading and straight-up false information that makes me wanna laugh and cry at the same time when I read that. So, be careful where you get your information from and see if those sites can be trusted BEFORE making any big decisions! With that out of the way, let’s jump into the good stuff and talk about the magical world of digital pianos. First, you should know how digital pianos differ from their acoustic counterparts and why you might prefer one over the other, so let’s address this first. Digital vs Acoustic: The Magic of The Digital World. You may wonder: “How do digital pianos work?” When it comes to digital pianos, the main challenge engineers face is to reproduce two things accurately: the sound and the feel of an acoustic piano. Both tasks are very difficult because there’s too much going on inside this amazing musical instrument. Strings, hammers, and keys are the elements that produce the sound in an acoustic piano. When you press a key, the attached hammer strikes the corresponding string(s), which vibrates and makes a sound. Digital pianos don’t have strings and hammers are used only to add weight to the keys and to recreate the mechanical movement found in the traditional instrument. To reproduce the sound of an acoustic piano and other musical instruments, digital pianos use samples. What are Samples? A sample is a small audio recording of a musical instrument’s sound, or of any other sound (ocean waves, sirens, wind, etc.). Samples can also be excerpts from recorded songs. For example, a five-second bass guitar riff from a funk song can be a sample. In this article, we’ll focus on samples used to reproduce the sound of musical instruments. Sampling is not limited to acoustic pianos. It is widely used for guitars, strings, organs, electric pianos, drums, flutes, strings, and many other musical instruments. This article will focus on acoustic piano samples. Usually, samples are recorded at different velocity levels (multi-samples) to naturally respond to the way you play the keys (from the softest pianissimo to the loudest fortissimo). The higher the quality of the samples and technologies used to create (or record) them, the more realistic and accurate the sound will be. In recent years, technology has become so sophisticated that high-end digital pianos provide sound that’s almost indistinguishable from a real piano. When it comes to major brands, the recording process usually looks like this… In a professional recording studio with a perfectly tuned acoustic piano (a grand piano in many cases), manufacturers record each note played at different volumes using multiple high-fidelity microphones. So if the process is roughly the same for all manufacturers, why don’t all digital pianos sound the same? Well, there are still a lot of things that manufacturers do differently. The ultimate sound you get depends on many factors: 1) The acoustic piano used to record the sound and the condition of the instrument. 2) The equipment used to capture the sound. 3) The placement of the mic(s) during the recording. 4) The acoustic environment where the sampling process occurred. 5) The post-processing and algorithms used to model complex tonal interactions, like string resonance, damper resonance, cabinet resonance, natural reverberation, etc. 6) The length of the samples and the amount of memory dedicated to them on a digital piano. 7) The number of velocity layers recorded for each note. The more velocity layers, the more natural volume transitions and better expressiveness you get. Generally, more memory means that longer/higher-quality samples with more velocity layers can be stored on a digital piano. Cheaper models have less memory, so manufacturers have to take a slightly different approach. Rather than recording each individual key of an acoustic piano, they record every second or every third note and then stretch the samples using modeling technologies to fill the gaps. Moreover, to avoid using gigabytes of sampling data, many manufacturers cut off a part of the sample to reduce its size. Sadly, your browser doesn’t support the video tag. This is an illustration of hands playing piano. For example, when you depress the sustain pedal and play, say, C3 on an acoustic piano, the note will continue to resonate for well over 10 seconds. Many lower-end digital pianos will only play back the first 3-5 seconds of the real recording, then loop the sample so that the same part is played over and over, but with gradually decreasing volume. While this helps to create a perception of a longer decay, it’s not the same decay that you hear on an acoustic piano, which is much more complex and dynamic than a simple volume decrease. The same applies to velocity layers. If there’s only one or two layers recorded for each note on a digital piano, it becomes very difficult to reproduce the wide dynamic range of an acoustic piano. In that case, to recreate the dynamics, the tone generator of the digital piano will just increase/decrease the volume of the same sample rather than using separate layers for different velocities, which is never ideal. For an acoustic piano, depending on how hard or soft you press the keys, the sound changes not only in volume but also in character. So it’s not just a matter of simple volume change. Now, if you’re beginner, you may not even notice these nuances, since manufacturers do try to make those transitions as smooth and realistic as possible. However, if you have a more trained ear, this could become an annoying thing that bothers you every time you play the instrument, which is never fun. Physical Modeling. Another interesting technology that has been gaining popularity is called Physical Modeling. Unlike sampling, which records the sound of an acoustic piano at different velocities, physical modeling basically recreates the piano sound from scratch. Various modeling techniques and advanced software recreate the physical behavior of the acoustic instrument, in which hundreds of elements interact with each other, making up the ultimate “imperfect” sound that we hear. While sampling remains the most popular technology in digital pianos today, you’ll hardly find a digital piano that doesn’t use some kind of modeling on top of its samples (e.g., for string resonance, damper resonance, etc.) to further improve the sound and make it sound more natural. There are also some digital pianos that use purely modeled piano sound with no samples at all. For example, most Roland high-end digital pianos today feature the SuperNATURAL Piano Modeling sound generator that uses only physical modeling to produce the sound. There are also various VST plugins (Virtual Studio Technology) that provide piano modeled sounds and effects. There’s a lot of debate today over which technology produces a more accurate, natural sound, but let’s leave that for another article. I’ll only say that both technologies have pros and cons. It’s ultimately a mixture of both that yields the best results. If you’re trying to decide between an acoustic or digital keyboard, and you want to learn more about their differences and similarities, I highly recommend checking out our in-depth Digital vs Acoustic Piano Guide. If you want a quick overview of the primary differences, please refer to the video below and to our table that shows the pros and cons of digital pianos. Pros Never needs to be tuned Easier to move around No maintenance costs Indifferent to temperature & humidity fluctuations A variety of built-in sounds (not just piano tones) Play at any time without bothering others (by practicing with headphones and adjusting the volume) Recording features Learning features (metronome, built-in songs, etc.) Connect to other electronic musical instruments & devices Use as MIDI-controllers to create music on your computer Affordability Cons Can’t beat the sound and touch of the real thing yet Requires a power source to operate Depreciates in value quicker than acoustic pianos (as new models are introduced) Don’t look as grand and beautiful as acoustic pianos (esp. compared to grand pianos) Lacks the “soul” of an acoustic piano Keyboard vs Digital Piano. The difference between a digital piano and a keyboard easily causes confusion. In fact, people often use these terms interchangeably, not realizing that these are two different instruments designed with different purposes in mind. While every digital piano can be called a digital keyboard, not every keyboard should be called a digital piano. The main difference between these instruments lies in their purposes. Depending on your needs and experience, you will likely prefer one over the other. Digital Pianos. Digital pianos come in all shapes, sizes, and forms, but a main goal unites them. A digital piano aims to mimic the feel and sound of an acoustic piano as closely as possible. The first thing you’ll notice is that all digital pianos come with a full set of 88 fully-weighted, hammer-action keys. In fact, this is the most obvious distinction from keyboards, which usually have only 76 or 61 non-weighted or semi-weighted keys. Another important aspect is the sound. Digital pianos rarely have more than 20-30 built-in tones, and their main priority is to provide the natural, nuanced sound of an acoustic piano. This is achieved by using high-quality multi-samples, as well as sophisticated modeling technologies that simulate organic elements of a piano’s sound, such as sympathetic resonance, damper resonance, key-off effect, etc. Digital pianos are straightforward instruments designed as an alternative to their acoustic counterparts. Generally, you won’t find hundreds of built-in sounds, songs, accompaniment styles, and interactive features on a digital piano. However, some digital pianos (e.g. Yamaha’s DGX-660 and Casio’s PX-S3000) share many qualities of arranger keyboards, while still being full-fledged digital pianos. Here is a quick overview of digital pianos and their main features: Keyboards. Digital (aka electronic) keyboards are a slightly different beast. Their most obvious difference from digital pianos is that they don’t try to replicate an acoustic piano, or this isn’t their main focus. As with digital pianos, there are different types of electronic keyboards. There are portable arranger keyboards, synthesizers, music workstations, MIDI-controllers, etc. These days, it can be tricky to categorize a particular keyboard since they often share features with other keyboard types. All these keyboards, except for portable arrangers, are primarily professional instruments that often cost over $1,000 and are designed for live performers, composers, music producers, etc. Now let’s take a quick look at each keyboard and digital piano type to point out their main differences. We’ll start with digital pianos. Types of Digital Pianos . As I mentioned before, digital pianos aim to reproduce the feel and sound of an acoustic piano as closely as possible. Yet not all digital pianos are created equal. There are different types of digital pianos, and depending on your needs and budget, you may prefer one over another. Let’s go over each type and define their main features and usage scenarios. Please refer to the Piano Dreamers Reviews Hub to see ALL the instruments we’ve reviewed so far. If you want to jump to the best of the best, check out our in-depth Best Digital Pianos Guide that covers all the main price ranges with the best models in each of them. Portable Type. Portable digital pianos are also known as “slab pianos” and are probably the most popular type of digital piano. The biggest advantage of these instruments is their design. They don’t come with a base (stand) and like portable keyboards, they can be moved around with ease and stored when not in use. The main difference from portable keyboards is that portable digital pianos have a full range of 88 hammer-action keys, like an acoustic piano. This makes them considerably heavier than non-weighted keyboards, though they’re still much lighter than acoustic ones. The sound quality is also superior due to higher quality samples, a higher polyphony count, and a wider dynamic range. Price is a big reason why portable pianos are popular. Generally, a console digital piano with the same characteristics (action, sound engine, and polyphony) will be about 20-40% more expensive than a portable one. At the same time, it’s important to remember that you’ll probably want to buy a stand for your portable piano, which can cost you an extra $30-$100, depending on the design (see the Accessories section).

Console digital pianos differ from their portable counterparts in that they come with a furniture-style cabinet and 3 pedals that resemble the feel and look of an acoustic piano. Several things (good and bad) come from the console design. First and foremost, you get a full-fledged instrument right away that comes with everything you need to experience an authentic playing experience. You don’t need to buy a stand or pedals separately. Thanks to an elegant, acoustic-like design, a console digital piano will be a beautiful addition to your home decor. Even so, here are the main disadvantages of console pianos: size and weight. Most console pianos weight from 70 to 150 lbs. and are meant to stay in one place. Yes, you can move them around easier than traditional pianos, but they simply aren’t designed to be carried around a lot, so keep that in mind. The prices of console digital pianos differ greatly, ranging from $700 to $5,000. The price largely depends on how closely the digital piano resembles a real acoustic piano. As the price goes up, so does the quality of the action, the sound samples, and the speaker system, as well as other elements that make the playing experience more authentic.

Upright digital pianos are a sub-type of console digital pianos. They feature big, fancy cabinets that are nearly identical to that of an upright piano. This is the most expensive type of digital piano (not counting digital grands and hybrids). You get not only the design of an acoustic piano but also a sophisticated hammer action (often with wooden keys), incredibly detailed samples, and a multi-speaker sound system. Digital Grand Pianos. This is the least common and most expensive type of digital piano. Many digital grand pianos from the big brands (e.g. Yamaha, Roland, and Kawai) cost more than a new upright. Just as with upright-style digital pianos, these offer an uncompromising playing experience, delivering big, powerful sound via their state-of-the-art speaker systems. The big body of a grand piano helps this instrument produce an impressively deep, resonant sound that resembles the sound of a real grand piano. Prices start at $1,500 for the inferior ones (from Williams and Suzuki) and go up to a whopping $15,000 for superior brands like Yamaha and Kawai. Arranger Type. Formally, this is not a type of digital piano, but I have chosen to treat it as one. To put it simply, an arranger digital piano is a digital piano (portable OR console) with features commonly found in arranger keyboards. What makes them different is that in addition to all those extra features, they still have detailed piano samples and 88 hammer action keys. Unlike classic digital pianos, these instruments come with a whole world of built-in sounds, rhythms, songs, effects, and recording features. As a result, their control panels are often cluttered with buttons and dials, and also with displays to improve the user experience. All these extra features make these digital pianos an attractive option for non-professional music production, composing, and exploring a wide range of musical instruments and music styles. Best Sellers:. Casio and Yamaha dominate this segment of the market. Popular models include the Yamaha DGX-660, Casio PX-S3000, Casio PX-780, and the Yamaha CSP-series. In many cases, there is a stripped-down version of an “arranger” model that provides a very similar piano experience but lacks many of the extra features (e.g. Yamaha DGX-660 – P-125; Casio PX-S3000 – PX-S1000; Casio PX-780 – PX-770; Yamaha CSP-series – CLP-series). Stage Pianos. Stage pianos are designed with live performances in mind. Rather than try looking like an acoustic piano, they aim to be a compact, gig-friendly alternative for use on stage or in studio. Like digital pianos, stage pianos focus on acoustic piano sounds and realistic touch response. That said, you’ll commonly find a good selection of electric piano tones, organs, and a simple synth section. The front panel is also a lot more streamlined, focusing on hands-on control, which allows you to make quick changes on the fly. Speaking of controls, stage pianos are more adept at sound shaping, providing various sound effects and parameters that you can adjust to get the “right” sound. The most obvious difference from classic digital pianos is that stage pianos don’t normally have built-in speakers. This is because they are designed for use with an external amplifier or PA system.

[Comparison Table of Digital Piano Types]. Keys Modern acoustic pianos have 88 keys. Most digital pianos and keyboards have 88, 76, 73, or 61 keys. In reality, 73 keys are enough to play most modern pieces. Some advanced pieces require a full set of 88 keys.Action Type There are 3 most common types of key actions: 1) Non-weighted - most organs, synths and entry-level keyboards are not weighted. 2) Semi-weighted - often used portable keyboards and workstations. Spring-loaded mechanism adds more resistance to the keys compared to the non-weighted action. 3) Fully weighted (hammer action) is designed to replicate the action of a real piano. It uses small hammers (rather than springs) attached to each key to recreate the mechanical movements and resistance similar to the acoustic piano action.Built-in TonesExtra FeaturesExtra features include all the additional functionality not directly related to piano-playing.

Now that the digital pianos types are out of the way, let’s quickly go over the main keyboard types. Portable Arranger Keyboards. Portable keyboards (a.k.a. portable arrangers) are what many people confuse with digital pianos. A portable keyboard is usually the first thing beginners consider as their first instrument for learning the piano. The main reason for this is the affordability of portable keyboards. For a beginner who is not 100% committed to mastering the piano, it’s an appealing option since it doesn’t risk overspending before a person knows whether they’ll stick with piano or not. The trade-off is that you won’t be able to fully understand or experience what it’s like to play a real piano because portable keyboards hardly provide a comparable level of realism in terms of sound, but especially touch. A typical portable keyboard cost anywhere from $100 to $300 and comes with 76, 73, or 61 semi-weighted or non-weighted keys. Unlike the fully-weighted action on digital pianos, semi-weighted action doesn’t use hammers to recreate the feel of an acoustic piano. It uses a spring-loaded mechanism instead, adding resistance to the keys, but still feeling light, unrealistic, and in no way comparable to the real thing. There are a few other advantages of portable keyboards, aside from price. First of all, as you can tell from their name that they’re portable. Most of these keyboards are only 10-15 lbs., so you can drag them around with ease. You can put them on a table and stow them away when not in use. Another advantage of portable keyboards is all the extra features and functions they provide. Most portable keyboards are loaded with hundreds of sounds, songs, rhythms, and other so-called bells and whistles. While I prefer quality over quantity, and many of the built-in tones sound plasticky and unrealistic, these features are definitely a plus for those who want to explore various instruments and styles and to have fun with interactive features. That’s why portable keyboards are a popular choice for kids and people beginning their musical journey. As I said before, it all comes down to your personal needs and the goal you hope to achieve. If your goal is to play the piano and learn proper technique, I don’t recommend portable keyboards, but with two exceptions: 1) If you have a very limited budget and can’t afford a digital piano ($350+), even the most basic one. In this case, practicing on a keyboard is better than not practicing at all! 2) If you’re in the early stages of learning and are unwilling to invest this kind of money in something you’re not sure you’ll stick with. In this case, once you become committed to learning the piano, I recommend upgrading to a digital piano as soon as possible. The comparison table below sums up the main differences between digital pianos and portable keyboards. Keys Modern acoustic pianos have 88 keys. Most digital pianos and keyboards have 88, 76, 73, or 61 keys. In reality, 73 keys are enough to play most modern pieces. Some advanced pieces require a full set of 88 keys.Action Type There are 3 most common types of key actions: 1) Non-weighted - most organs, synths and entry-level keyboards are not weighted. 2) Semi-weighted - often used portable keyboards and workstations.

It uses small hammers (rather than springs) attached to each key to recreate the mechanical movements and resistance similar to the acoustic piano action.Touch Sensitivity The volume produced by the instrument changes depending on how hard or soft you play the keys. Touch Response, Velocity Sensitivity, Touch Sensitivity are the same thing . Many digital pianos allow you to adjust touch sensitivity (make the keyboard more or less sensitive to the force of your keystrokes) to better suit your playing style.Polyphony The number of notes a piano can play at once. The more polyphony the better, especially when layering several sounds or using backing tracks, etc. When you reach the polyphony cap, the piano starts to drop the earliest played notes to free up memory for the new ones, which affects the sound and its fullness.

A synthesizer is an electronic keyboard that generates or copies a wide variety of sounds and is commonly used in music production. Synths allow you to create virtually any kind of sound you can imagine, including sounds of musical instruments, voices, the wind, a burst, a siren, a car, and the list can go on forever. How is this possible? Well, synthesizers come with a set of basic waveforms and pre-recorded sounds, which you can mix together, as well as alter the sound’s attack, sustain, decay, and release time, add filters and effects to get the exact sound you need. Arranger Keyboards / Workstations. Arrangers are designed primarily for professional musicians and a wide variety of backing tracks (chord and rhythm patterns) that will match the style, rhythm, and tempo of whatever you’re playing. This allows composers and songwriters to create an accompaniment for a song quickly and easily without calling in musicians to play all instruments live. Lower-end arrangers are often called “portable arrangers,” or simply “portable keyboards”, which we already talked about earlier. Music Workstations. A keyboard workstation is like a computer built into a keyboard. Workstations combine a wide range of tools and allow users to perform a wide variety of tasks, including sound synthesis, sequencing, audio recording, working with sound effects/filters, etc. They usually come with hundreds if not thousands of top-notch sound samples, which can be customized with knobs and sliders that allow you to control various sound parameters on the fly. Watch the video below to better understand the difference between keyboard workstations and professional arrangers: MIDI Controllers. A MIDI controller (aka MIDI keyboard) is a device that generates and transmits MIDI data to other electronic devices that can interpret the data and can trigger sounds or control sound parameters accordingly. A typical MIDI controller is a piano-style keyboard, which connects to a computer and sends MIDI data to it via USB or MIDI ports. MIDI controllers can’t produce any sounds on their own (there’s no sound engine inside). They only track your key presses (velocity, length, pressure) and various control elements (knobs, sliders, pads, etc.). That data is then sent to your computer or another musical keyboard that generates the actual sound. Most MIDI-controllers have non-weighted keys and are not designed to mimic the feel of an acoustic piano. The non-weighted action facilitates non-piano sounds, like synths, organs, electric pianos, etc. Some MIDI controllers target piano players such as the M-Audio Hammer 88 or the more premium Kawai VPC1, which features the incredibly realistic RM3II keyboard, which is ideal for playing piano sounds. Refer to our MIDI Connection Guide to learn more about how to use your keyboard as a MIDI controller and about what you can do when connected. Any digital piano with a USB type B port or some MIDI In/Out ports can function as a MIDI controller. Best Digital Piano Brands. When it comes to digital pianos I recommend sticking with the following brands: Yamaha | Full Brand Overview Roland | Full Brand Overview Casio | Full Brand Overview Kawai Korg Nord Dexibell These are giants in the world of digital musical instruments. They are proven, reliable brands that provide the best technology in the industry that other brands can’t offer right now. Buying a digital piano from one these 7 brands will save you the time and headache of dealing with lesser-known brands that deliver poor build quality and provide an unrealistic sound and feel. While this may not always be the case, do you really want to take that chance? Brands to Avoid. Williams Suzuki Artesia There are many more I could mention, but these are the most popular ones. Digital pianos from these manufacturers usually look good and are very affordable, but their sound realism and key action leaves a lot to be desired. Note: Please read our full Digital Piano Brands Guide to learn more about the brands we do and don’t recommend, along with their product lines and popular models. Types of Keyboard Actions. There are 3 main types of keyboard actions you’ll likely encounter: 1) Non-weighted 2) Semi-weighted 3) Fully weighted (Hammer Action) The difference between these actions comes from the type of mechanisms they use. This, in turn, determines how much force is needed to press a key and how realistic the action will be compared to the feel of an acoustic piano keyboard. Depending on your needs and playing style, you may prefer one type more than the others. Non-Weighted (Synth) . This is the most lightweight action and is found commonly in organs, synthesizers, entry-level keyboards, and many other keyboard-based instruments that don’t aim to mimic the feel of an acoustic piano. The synth action uses a basic spring-loaded mechanism. The keys are usually thin and small with a light plastic feel. The action will likely feel uncomfortable to piano players as it’s just too quick, lacks resistance, and feels springy. At the same time, for some types of music (other than the piano) synth action is preferred for its playability and light feel, which is perfect for playing synth leads, organ tunes, etc. Pros Great for playing music other than piano Allows for fast note repetitions Most non-weighted keyboards are very portable Cons Doesn’t feel like an acoustic piano keyboard (at all) Not the best choice for piano players May be hard to transition to an acoustic piano after practicing on this type of action Semi-Weighted . A semi-weighted action feels similar to the synth action, yet it offers slightly more resistance and better control. It uses the same spring-loaded mechanism, but compared to synth action, the keys feel heavier thanks to either stiffer springs or additional weights. As a result, the keys return to their “up” position a bit more slowly. Even so, the action is far from what you get on an acoustic piano and is not recommended if you want to focus on piano playing. It’s a basically a middle ground between synth action and fully weighted action, making it perfect for those who don’t want the heavier feel of hammer action or those who constantly switch between piano and non-piano sounds. Non-weighted action commonly appears in music/synth workstations, arranger keyboards, and some stage pianos (usually versions with less than 88 keys)   Many semi-weighted keyboards have blocked-end keys that look like regular piano keys and can be confused easily with hammer action keyboards. Pros Feels closer to an acoustic piano than a non-weighted action Great for playing organ and electric piano sounds Relatively light and portable Cons Still lacks realism and piano-like feedback, despite being heavier than synth action Not the best choice for piano players May be hard to transition to an acoustic piano after practicing on this type of action Fully Weighted (Hammer Action). A hammer action keyboard is designed to replicate the touch and feel of an acoustic piano. To achieve this goal, manufacturers have added little hammers under (or behind) each key to recreate mechanical movement similar to a real piano. However, not all hammer action keyboards are created equal. A $500 entry-level piano and a $5,000 high-end piano can both have hammer action keys, but each will be completely different actions with different feels and levels of realism. As a general rule, the higher the price of the instrument, the more sophisticated the hammer system it uses. High-end models often have real wooden keys with an escapement mechanism that recreate every nuance of an acoustic piano action, including the design of the hammers themselves. Also, the total length of each key (including the part behind the fallboard that you don’t see) is usually much longer compared to that of entry-level digital pianos. This becomes more important as you develop your playing skills. The longer the length of the keys, the further back you can have the pivot point, which makes it much easier to play further up the keys. If your goal is to learn to play the piano, I can’t stress enough how important it is to practice on a fully-weighted keyboard as opposed to a semi-weighted or non-weighted one. This is the only type of key action that facilitates developing proper finger strength and technique. Moreover, it will make it much easier to transition to an acoustic piano further down the line (if you decide to do so). Pros The most realistic type of keyboard actions Helps develop proper finger strength and technique The best choice for piano players Cons Relatively heavy and not as portable More expensive than non-weighted and semi-weighted actions Not as versatile due to its heavier feel Popular Features of Hammer Action Keyboards. 88 KeysGraded Hammer EffectIvory & EbonyTouch Sensitivity 3-Sensor SystemKey Noise Modern acoustic pianos have 88 keys. Most keyboards have 88, 76, 73, or 61 . In reality, 73 keys are enough to play most modern pieces. Some advanced pieces require a full set of 88 keys. Most digital pianos have 88 full-sized keys, which means the size and the number of keys are the same as an acoustic piano. Graded key actions often have the word “graded” or “progressive” in their name, which implies that the keys feel slightly heavier in lower registers and become progressively lighter as you move up the keyboard, which is what an actual acoustic piano feels like. Instead of smooth plastic keys, higher-end digital pianos often have textured keys that simulate an Ivory and/or Ebony feel. This gives the keys a nicer, less slippery feel, enhances control, and helps absorb moisture when playing in high humid conditions. All digital pianos have a touch-sensitive keyboard, which means the volume changes depending on how hard or soft you play the keys. Digital pianos usually have adjustable touch sensitivity, which allows you to tweak the sensitivity of the keys. In other words, you can choose how much force you need to apply to produce the loudest sound. Entry-level keyboards cheaper than $150 usually don’t respond to the force (velocity) of your key presses and produce the same amount of volume regardless of how you play. Sensors are used to detect the depth and velocity at which the keys are played. Most entry-level digital pianos (under $1,000) use a 2-sensor detection system. More expensive models add one additional sensor and use 3-sensor systems, allowing for quicker note repetition by tracing the key presses, even if the key hasn’t fully returned to its resting position. In my opinion, the notion of sensors is overhyped, as there are more important elements that add to the realism of a keyboard’s action. In fact, I played many keyboards with 2-sensor systems that felt more realistic and responsive than those with 3-sensor systems. That said, it’s still a nice feature to have in a keyboard, especially if you’re an experienced piano player. The keys on both acoustic and digital pianos inevitably produce some amount of noise when you play them. This isn’t anything to worry about as long as it doesn’t affect your playing experience. On acoustic pianos, the noise is usually inaudible due to high volume levels of that the instrument. On digital pianos at low to medium volume levels, you might hear the keys hitting the bottom of the keybed or a slight clicking/thumbing noise, which is also not a problem. Some keyboard actions tend to be less noisy than others, but it all comes down to a particular keyboard. More expensive models usually have very quiet keyboard actions. The thing to remember is that all the keys should produce roughly the same amount of noise. If one or two keys are significantly louder than the others, it’s better to contact the manufacturer or the service center, especially if the noise bothers you. The Definitive Glossary. There are many new terms and names of technologies that you will encounter when looking for a digital keyboard. Here are some of the most common and important ones that you should know and understand to make an informed buying decision. Functions and Features. Not only do digital pianos provide versatility and convenience not available with acoustic pianos, but they also come with a bunch of extra features that make playing and learning more enjoyable and fun. MetronomePolyphonyModesPreset TemperamentsLesson FunctionMIDI RecordingAudio RecordingAccompaniment Transpose, Fine Tuning A useful tool for practice that will help develop your rhythmic and timekeeping skills by providing a steady beat to play along with. Some digital pianos allow you to change the conventional clicking sound of the metronome to various drum rhythms. You can also adjust the number of beats per measure, the tempo, and the volume of the metronome. Polyphony is the number of notes a digital piano can produce at the same time. Most contemporary digital pianos are equipped with 64, 128, 192 or 256-note polyphony. You may wonder how it is possible to have 32, 64, or even 128 notes playing at the same time, if there are only 88 keys and you will never play them all at once. First of all, many of today’s digital pianos use stereo samples, which may require two or more notes for each key played. Furthermore, using the sustain pedal, sound effects (Reverb, Chorus), dual-mode (layering), and even the metronome ticking sound takes up additional notes of polyphony. For example, when you depress the sustain pedal, the earliest played notes continue to sound while you’re adding new ones, so the piano needs more memory to keep all the notes sounding. Another example of polyphony consumption is when you’re playing along with a song playback (can also be your own recorded performance) or auto-accompaniment. In this case, the piano will need polyphony not only for the notes you’re playing, but also for the backing track. When you reach the polyphony cap, the piano starts to drop the earliest played notes to free up memory for new notes, which in turn affects the quality and fullness of the sound. You’ll rarely need all 192 or 256 voices of polyphony at once, but there are cases when you can reach 64 or even 128 note limits, especially if you like to layer several sounds and create multi-track recordings. It’s desirable to have at least 64 notes of polyphony. Along with the “standard” keyboard mode, digital pianos usually offer other modes for using two instrument sounds at the same time or for playing with four hands. Here are the most popular modes that digital pianos may offer: 1) Split Mode – divides the keyboard into two parts, allowing you to play a different instrument sound in each part. For example, you can play guitar with your left hand and piano with your right, both at the same time. 2) Dual Mode (a.k.a Layer Mode)  – allows you to layer two different sounds so that they sound simultaneously whenever you press a key. For example, you can layer strings with the piano sound or combine whatever sounds you like to get some new, intriguing sounds. 3) Duo Mode (a.k.a. Duet Play, Partner Mode, Twin Piano) – divides the keyboard into two halves with identical pitch ranges (two middle Cs), allowing two people to sit together and play the same notes at the same time. Duet Play is particularly useful when you use it with your teacher or tutor so they can play some tunes on one side of the keyboard while you follow along on the other side, playing the exact same notes. Some digital pianos come with preset temperaments, which means you can change the standard Equal Temperament tuning to tuning systems that are better suited for playing certain styles of music (Indian, Arabian, classical, etc.) Some digital pianos allow you to turn off the left- or right-hand part (track) of a song (built-in or downloaded from the internet) and practice it while listening to the playback of the other part. Pianos that have this function usually have a multi-track MIDI recorder. A MIDI recorder allows you to record and play back your own performances right onboard needing additional software or hardware. A multi-track recorder (2 or more tracks) allows you to record several musical parts on separate tracks and to play them back as a single song. You’ll also be able to experiment with your recording by turning your recorded tracks on and off. A MIDI recording is not the recording of the actual instrument sound. Here, we’re recording the MIDI data (a sequence of notes, their length, velocity, and other parameters). For more information about MIDI and what it allows you to do, refer to our MIDI Connection Guide. A built-in audio recorder will allow you to record the audio output of your piano and to save it to a flash drive, usually in WAV or MP3 format (Linear PCM, 16bit, 44.1 kHz, Stereo). You can then share your recording on social media, upload it to SoundCloud, burn it to a CD, etc. An audio recording is far more universal than a MIDI recording, as it doesn’t require you to use any sample libraries or special software to play it back on an external device. Instead, you get a CD-quality audio recording of your performance that you can easily play back on most modern devices. The auto-accompaniment function can enrich your performance by adding a full backing band (rhythm, bass, and harmony) that will follow your playing and turn it into a full-fledged song. The accompaniment will change according to the notes you play with your left hand (chords or even single notes if you don’t know full cords). In other words, you manage the “band” with your left hand (by specifying chords) and play the main melody with your right. Some instruments offer alternative methods of chord specifying, for example, using the full range of the keyboard. 1) The transpose function allows you to shift the overall pitch of the keyboard in semitone steps. The function is especially useful when you want to play a song in a different key but don’t want to change your fingering and learn it in a new key. So, for example, if you know how to play a song in F major, you can transpose and play the song in C major without actually learning it in a new key. You can also transpose a song written in a difficult key (e.g., many black keys) into an “easier” key, then play it in the new key while still hearing it in the original key. 2) The tuning function allows you to shift the pitch from the standard A440 tuning, usually in 0.1Hz, 0.2Hz, or 0.5Hz steps. You can use this function to match the piano’s pitch to that of other instruments or music (like an old piano or cassette tape). Sound Simulation. The tone of an acoustic piano is quite complex and consists of many different elements. Depending on the model, digital pianos reproduce various nuances of an acoustic piano sound to get even closer to the sound of a real acoustic piano. Some digital pianos also allow you to adjust these parameters to better suit your preferences (more resonance, less hammer noise, etc.) Damper ResonanceString ResonanceKey-Off EffectLid Simulator When you depress the damper (aka sustain) pedal on an acoustic piano and start playing, you can hear the notes continuing to sound after you release the keys. This happens because when you press the damper pedal, the dampers lift from the strings, allowing them to resonate freely until you release the pedal. Some digital pianos also have a “half-pedal” feature that allows you to control the amount of sustain more precisely and be more expressive while playing. What’s interesting is that the strings of the keys you play cause all the other strings to resonate too, creating a faint ringing known as “damper resonance.” Digital pianos don’t have strings, but they recreate this effect digitally instead. When you play an acoustic piano, the sound it produces is not only associated with the played keys and their corresponding strings. The other strings with closely related frequencies also resonate sympathetically, making the sound richer and fuller, which is known as string resonance or sympathetic string resonance. This function removes the sense of notes being dry and separated from each other. Many digital piano today simulate this phenomenon quite accurately. The sound of the dampers falling back onto the strings varies, depending on the speed at which the fingers leave the keys. Key-off simulators adjust the length of these sounds according to the key’s release speed. Some digital pianos have the Lid Simulation feature, which mimics the sound of a grand piano with the lid raised or lowered. Other elements of piano sound reproduced in some digital pianos (typically higher-end models) include: Hammer Noise Key On/Off Noise Damper Noise Cabinet Resonance Aliquot Resonance Undamped String Resonance While some of these elements are subtle and obscure, they add to the overall realism and produce a more organic sound. Connectors. The ability to connect to other music gear and smart devices is another important advantage of digital pianos and keyboards. By connecting your instrument to external devices you can open up a world of possibilities when it comes to learning, music creation, and performing. USB type A USB type B Headphone JackSustain JackLine OutLine InAudio InBluetooth MIDI / AudioMIDI In/OutMic In Also known as a USB to Device port or USB flash drive port. The port can be used to plug a flash drive into the piano to exchange files quickly and easily. For example, many digital pianos with this port will let you load MIDI files into the piano’s internal memory for playback or rehearsal. Alternately, depending on the model, you might be able to play back WAV and MIDI files directly from the flash drive. This port is often used to save your audio files, recorded with the instrument, to the flash drive. Finally, this is the port you’ll use to install firmware updates, though some manufacturers allow you to do it via the USB type B port as well. This port is often called a USB to Host terminal or USB to Computer port. This port connects your digital piano to a computer or smart device (using a special adapter) to exchange songs/files, and MIDI data. This port allows you to use the piano as a MIDI controller to control various music apps, such as GarageBand, FlowKey, Playground Sessions, etc. There are tons of other apps that can expand the functionality of your digital piano in terms of learning, composing, recording, editing music. Some brands offer their own free apps designed for certain piano models. Such apps usually enable you to control the settings and functions of the instrument, via an intuitive graphical interface. You probably won’t find a digital piano or keyboard without a headphone jack. The jack allows you to plug in a pair of headphones and practice at any time without bothering the people around you. A sustain jack (a.k.a. damper jack) can be used to connect a sustain pedal to your instrument and use it the same way you use the sustain pedal on an acoustic piano. Line Out (a.k.a. Aux Out) jacks connect your digital piano to external sound equipment such as amplifiers, PA systems, mixers, etc. Line In (R, L/Mono) jacks function like Line Out jacks, but in reverse. They can be used to input the audio signal of an external device to your digital piano/keyboard. Line In jacks aren’t commonly found in digital pianos, but many professional keyboards have them. An Audio In jack works the same way as Line In jacks, but instead of two 1/4″ standard jacks (R, L/Mono) you usually get one 1/8” stereo jack. Audio In jacks are found more commonly in digital pianos and entry-level keyboards. They allow you to connect your smart devices (smartphones, laptops, tablets) to your instrument with ease, using a 1/8” Male to Male cable and listening to them via your piano’s built-in speakers. One end of the cable goes to the headphone jack of your device and the other to the Audio In of your piano. Bluetooth MIDI allows you to connect your piano to a smart device wirelessly to exchange MIDI data with various music apps (e.g. GarageBand, Flowkey, Simply Piano, etc.). You can use this feature as a wireless alternative to a USB MIDI connection. Note that some pianos can only transfer audio data via Bluetooth, while others can only transfer MIDI. Some pianos support both MIDI and Audio data via Bluetooth. MIDI In/Out are 5-pin legacy ports used to transfer MIDI data. These days, MIDI ports are being replaced increasingly by USB type B terminals. Some people still prefer MIDI ports, mainly because they are compatible with older keyboards and synths from past decades. There is not much difference when you use these ports for computer connections, except the fact that the USB A to B cable you’d use for USB connections is cheaper and more common than MIDI to USB adapters. Most professional keyboards come with both USB and MIDI ports to be compatible with legacy gear (yes, you can send MIDI data not only to a computer but also to other musical instruments). A Mic In jack can be used to plug a microphone into the keyboard directly and sing along with your performance or song playback. The keyboard will mix and output your vocals via the main audio channel so you can listen to it as you sing via headphones or onboard speakers. Some digital pianos will also allow you to add basic effects and adjust parameters. Generally speaking, a Mic In jack is rare to find on a digital piano. How Long Do Digital Pianos Last? While digital pianos can serve you for a long time (sometimes 10 or more years), their lifespan tends to be shorter than acoustic pianos, and this is not necessarily due to wear and tear (though this also can be the case) The digital piano market today is very active and is still in its development stage. New models (with new features and technologies) come out every year, bringing even more realistic piano playing experiences. This situation is similar to the electronics market in general (smartphones, laptops, etc. ) Consequently, a digital piano you bought, say, 10 years ago, will have a hard time competing with models introduced only a few years ago. That’s why you’ll likely find very few people using a 20-year-old digital piano today. The technology available back then is much inferior to what you can get today for the same (or less) money. And since digital pianos haven’t been around for that long, it’s kind of hard to predict the future direction of the industry and if such trends will continue. That being said, for just $1,000 today you can buy a decent digital piano that sounds and feels close to an upright piano, and which won’t lose its actuality in the future. Does this mean you can buy a digital piano and use it for 30, 40, or 50 years? Perhaps, but it’s quite unlikely. One reason is the obsolescence we just talked about, and another one is wear and tear. While digital pianos are electric instruments with fewer elements that can break or wear out compared to acoustic pianos, there will still be some mechanical wear and tear, and your digital piano may need a repair eventually. This is especially true for the key action. Over time, it can develop more noise (the felt under the keys wear out, the keys become clunkier and looser, etc.), which can make the playing experience much less enjoyable. How fast will that happen? It depends. First, it will come down to the key action itself. It should come as no surprise that higher-end digital pianos with higher-quality and more sophisticated action mechanics will serve for more years than a $300 keyboard. Another important thing is how often you use your digital piano. Perhaps you’ll play it for an hour or two several times a week, or perhaps you’ll have a big family and all your kiddos will play the piano daily for hours. Either way, by the time that happens, there will probably be newer, better models available on the market, and the question is, “Will you be willing to invest money into repair?” In some cases, repairs can be half as expensive as the piano itself, or in other cases, it is easier to get a new model instead. Getting parts can also be difficult, especially if your digital piano is more than 10 years old. When it comes to acoustic pianos, the situation is different because they tend to cost considerably more than digital pianos and “obsolescence” is not really a thing for them. So it makes much more sense to repair an acoustic piano than to repair a digital one. But it all depends on your situation of course, and if you’re a happy owner of the Kawai Novus NV10 (~ $10,000) or the Yamaha AvantGrand NU1X (~ $6,000), it will probably make more sense to repair your instrument than to get a new one. But that’s a different story… Accessories . There are a number of accessories you may want purchase in addition to a digital piano. What accessories you choose depends on what you get with your digital piano out of the box and also on your personal needs. Nearly all console digital pianos come with an integral stand (cabinet) and 3 pedals, so you don’t need to spend extra money on that. Most portable pianos don’t come with a stand of any kind and only include a small plastic sustain pedal (footswitch). So with portable models, you’ll likely to spend more money on additional accessories than with console ones. Personally, when it comes to digital piano accessories, I don’t recommend buying the all-in-one bundles available on Amazon, as the accessories you’ll get are usually very cheap and not of good quality, especially the headphones. Stand. When it comes to stands, you basically have two options. The first is to buy a portable Z- or X-type stand that is portable and easy to stow when not in use. Such stands are usually collapsible and adjustable, making them even more versatile. The second option is to buy a furniture-style stand that manufacturers often offer for their portable digital pianos. Such stands are sturdier than X-type stands and best suited for home use. They’re easy to move around, but you probably wouldn’t use them for gigs as they’re not as portable as X-style stands. The price of furniture-style stands can be as much as $100-$150. Pedals. When it comes to piano pedals, there are three options to consider. The first one, is to use the sustain pedal that comes with your instrument. Most entry-level digital pianos come with a flimsy, plastic footswitch that feels nothing like an acoustic piano pedal. But it still does its job, and for a beginner, it would be a satisfactory solution. On the other hand, if you’re a more experienced player and want a more substantial and realistic sustain pedal, you may want to consider a piano-style chrome pedal that feels and looks like a real piano pedal. Luckily they aren’t very expensive, and I always recommend the M-Audio SP-2, which has proven to be a reliable, high-quality sustain pedal that will work with any digital piano or keyboard with a sustain jack (most of them have one). Those who don’t just need a sustain pedal (the most used piano pedal), but need all three pedals found on an acoustic piano (sustain, soft, and sostenuto), should consider buying a 3-pedal unit that manufacturers offer for their digital pianos. Usually, those 3-pedal units are designed to be fastened to a furniture-style stand (both should be compatible with your specific piano model). Headphones. Choosing a good pair of headphones for your digital pianos is probably as important as choosing a digital piano itself, especially if you’re going to spend a lot of time using them. It’s your headphones that deliver the sound, so if they are one of those subpar, generic $15 ones, you won’t experience a full and rich depth of sound or enjoy your playing as much as you could. A good pair of headphones, on the other hand, will provide a clear and detailed sound that onboard speakers can’t offer. Check out our guide to learn how to choose the best-sounding headphones for your digital piano. Bench. Alright, you’ve bought a digital piano, but you need to sit on something, right? Luckily, this isn’t a huge problem. You can find a good bench for your digital piano. There are a variety of options on the market, so it’s relatively easy to find the one that catches your eye and fits your budget. There are basically two types of benches: 1) Adjustable X-style benches (perfect for gigs) 2) Classic wooden benches (perfect for home) The price of a bench varies from about $20 to $60+ depending on type, brand name, and materials. External Amplification. There several types of external speakers that you can use with your keyboard or digital piano. A keyboard amp is the first thing that comes to mind when you think about amplifying the keyboard. A keyboard amp usually consists of a power amp and a speaker housed in one unit. They are designed to provide a more powerful, higher-quality sound, with a better bass response compared to onboard speakers. Amps are quite versatile and can be used in a variety of situations, starting from a small band rehearsal and ending with big performances and live events. There are a few factors you need to consider before buying external speakers including portability, power, input and output channels, extra features, etc. For more information on how to choose an external amplifier for your digital piano, check out this extensive guide. Bag/Case. If your home isn’t the only place where you’ll use your piano, you should definitely consider buying a keyboard bag to protect your instrument during transport and to make it easier to carry around. Some manufacturers offer their own branded keyboard bags, while others don’t. Regardless, you have many options from other trusted brands like Gator, Kaces, etc. Here are my two favorite protective cases for long-distance travel: 1. Gator Molded Flight Cases 2. SKB Keyboard Cases with Wheels For light travel, you don’t need those heavy-duty plastic cases, which are quite expensive. However, if you’re traveling by plane or train, one of those cases is a must if you want to keep your instrument safe. For car travel, you’ll be better off with something lightweight and less expensive. Here are the three keyboard bags I recommend for light travel: 1. Gator Padded Gig Bags 2. Gator Pro-Go Gig Bags (with removable backpack straps) 3. Casio PRIVCASE Privia Case 4. Yamaha Soft Case for 88-Key Keyboards Buying a Digital Piano: My Recommendations. When it comes to buying a digital piano, there are two ways you can go – order online or buy in a physical store. Both have their advantages and disadvantages. While I always recommend playing a digital piano in-person to ensure that YOU like how it sounds and feels, this may not always be possible. Let’s look at each option in detail so you can decide which one is best for you. Offline. Despite strong competition from online retailers, brick and mortar stores are a popular place to buy musical instruments and digital pianos in particular. Pros: 1) You can try out the instrument in person to find out what you like or don’t like about it. 2) It’s much easier to make a decision and be confident about it when you have actually played the piano yourself. 3) You receive personalized attention from the sales staff. You can get a recommendation from a sale’s person for your particular situation (needs and experience), as well as a demonstration of how the instrument sounds from a listener’s perspective. 4) You can pick up your piano immediately, without having to wait for delivery (in most cases). Cons: 1) A sale’s person influences your decision and can talk you into buying a piano you’re hesitant about or not in love with. 2) Prices in physical stores tend to be higher than online, especially in small local ones. 3) You’re usually stuck with a very limited selection of models (usually the ones that make the retailer the most money). Online. Online sales for musical instruments are growing each year, and people are definitely growing in confidence about buying a digital piano online today over, say, 5 years ago. This is actually not surprising considering the many advantages of buying online. Pros: 1) Save time and effort (saving on gas, no parking hassles, no need to wait for a sale’s person, etc.) 2) Enjoy the convenience of shopping at home, 24/7. 3) A wide range of models is available. Almost any digital piano or keyboard can be purchased online. 4) Benefit from consumer & expert reviews, forum discussions, and video demonstrations, which are more trustworthy sources of information than the opinion of a salesperson. 5) There’s no pressure. You can take your time and weigh all the pros and cons to make a thought-out decision, avoiding the salesperson influence. 7) The “price + shipping (usually free)” price is usually lower compared to brick-and-mortar stores. 8) If you have some issues with the piano and it’s still under warranty, you don’t need to bring it back to the store you bought it from. In most cases, an online retailer will collect, repair, and return the piano free of charge. Cons: 1) You can’t personally try out the instrument and may potentially buy one you don’t love (though you can still visit a showroom before ordering online). 2) You don’t get your piano immediately (usually takes 2-5 days), and in some cases, delivery can be delayed. 3) There is a security risk (payment fraud, personal information). That’s why I recommend only using well-known, reliable online retailers.   List of Retailers. Here are the most popular and trusted online retailers I recommend: USA:. Amazon This giant needs no introduction. As one of the largest online retailers in the world, Amazon provides a wide selection of keyboards and digital pianos, with special discounts and bundle deals (more discounts and next-day delivery is available for Prime Members).

UK & Europe:. There are two online retailers that I absolutely recommend for those who live in the UK and Europe: Thomann Online since 1996 The largest online retailer of musical instruments in Europe (based in Germany) Purchases at Thomann are backed up by their 3-year warranty, i.e. they extend the manufacturer’s warranty period (usually 12 months) to a full 36 months – at their own cost Free shipping from €398 euros (Worldwide) Europe’s largest warehouse = best possible prices Gear4music Online since 2003 One of the largest retailers of musical instruments and equipment in the UK & Europe Local websites in 19 countries Delivery to 196 countries worldwide 30-day money back guarantee on everything, with FREE returns (can be expanded to up to 120 days) FAQ . Do I absolutely need 88 keys? I’d say yes, unless you’re a gigging musician and portability matters a lot to you. Even so, 73 or 76 keys are enough to play most musical pieces, but as you progress you’ll probably want to have all 88 keys, especially if you’re going to play a lot of classical pieces. Most digital pianos have 88 keys. Do I need all 3 piano pedals? The sustain pedal is the most used pedal on a piano and is a must for everyone, including beginners. The other two pedals (soft and sostenuto) are used much more rarely and are not essential. If you’re a beginner to intermediate player, you probably won’t use them anyway. Still, these pedals are occasionally required in some classical pieces, though usually for more advanced repertoire. So if you’re an experienced player, you probably already know if you need them or not. Does my digital piano need to be tuned? Digital pianos never need to be tuned because they only playback recorded sounds (samples) of a perfectly tuned acoustic piano. Acoustic pianos should be tuned at least once a year, which will cost you about $80 – $100. Can I adjust the volume of my digital piano? Yes, all digital pianos and keyboards allow you to adjust the volume, which is very convenient. Can I connect headphones and practice in silence? Yes, absolutely, and it’s one of the main advantages of digital musical instruments. You can hook up some headphones to your digital piano and play at any time without bothering anyone else. You probably won’t be able to find a digital piano or keyboard that doesn’t have a headphone jack these days. Can I record and play back my playing? Yes, most $500+ digital pianos have a built-in MIDI-sequencer that allows you to record your performance and play it back. Some digital pianos have a multi-track recorder, so you can record several parts independently, then play them back as a single song. How much polyphony do I need? I recommend having at least 64 notes of polyphony for playing piano and 128 notes if you’re going to layer multiple sounds and use multiple backing tracks in your performances. How much speaker wattage do I need? While more powerful speakers allow for a fuller and bolder sound, I wouldn’t get too carried away with this feature. More output power doesn’t necessarily mean better sound, but it does increase the capacity of the speakers. When it comes to speakers, there are more important aspects that enhance the ultimate sound you hear, including the quality of the speakers themselves, how many of speakers there are, where they’re placed, your acoustic environment, etc. Do wooden keys make a difference? You’ll find that more expensive digital pianos ($2000+) often have wooden keys. Some claim they feel more realistic than plastic keys but as long as the weight of the key action provides the same resistance as that of an acoustic piano it actually shouldn’t matter too much what the keys are made of. However, the physical qualities of wood do differ from plastic material, so you get an additional layer of realism with wooden keys, at least aesthetically. What are the basic things I should look for in a digital piano? If you’re a beginner, you want look at pianos that have: 88 hammer action keys At least 64 notes of polyphony High-quality acoustic piano samples with a wide dynamic range (from the softest to the loudest sound) Metronome and Transpose functions Depending on your needs, you may also want USB-MIDI connectivity, an onboard MIDI-recorder, built-in songs, and other extra features. How do digital pianos differ from one manufacturer to another? You may wonder why there are so many manufacturers and models of digital pianos. Well, not all digital pianos are created equal. Though they all aim to mimic a real piano, this is easier said than done. As a general rule, the more money you spend, the more realistic the sound and feel will be. Manufacturers develop their own technologies, which they use in the process of sound recording/modeling, as well as when they design the keyboard actions, speaker systems, and all the features that come with their pianos. That’s why the sound and feel of digital pianos differ significantly from one brand to another. You might also like:.

By going on this journey, you’re joining a tradition that’s been going on for over 300 years. Before you learn how to buy the best piano for you, it may help to understand the historical context of this magnificent instrument. The Harpsichord and Clavichord. Before the piano, there was the harpsichord and the clavichord. The harpsichord is different from other keyboard instruments because its strings are plucked rather than hammered. With keys that resemble unweighted buttons, it has a small dynamic range. A harpsichord, Cristofori pianoforte, and Broadwood piano. Demonstration of a clavichord. The clavichord dates back to the late Middle Ages. It’s very compact and rather quiet. But it more closely resembles the piano because the strings are hammered, although some notes can’t be played at the same time. The triangular shape of the harpsichord comes from it being descended from harps laid down. We still see this shape in grand pianos today! Cristofori’s Pianoforte and Beethoven’s Broadwood. In the 1700s, piano engineering took a huge step forward thanks to Bartholomew Cristofori. Cristofori single-handedly designed the pianoforte (literally, “soft-loud”) which is the precursor to the modern piano. Unlike previous keyboard instruments, the pianoforte has a nuanced, dynamic range based on how much pressure a pianist puts on the keys. Escapement was another innovation — a mechanism that keeps strings from vibrating when not in use. A copy of a fortepiano Mozart would have used in the 1700s. A Broadwood piano similar to one Beethoven may have played. Piano engineering would take another big step in the 1800s with John Broadwood’s pianos. Beethoven famously abused his pianos out of frustration because he was hard of hearing. But when he gained access to the Broadwood piano, his world changed. In fact, Beethoven’s dynamic and passionate composition style may have come about thanks to the greater expressive range of the Broadwood. Modern Pianos. The pianos of today are a culmination of hundreds of years of human ingenuity. Pianos are one of few instruments capable of playing melody and harmony at once. And the sound of an acoustic piano is strong enough to stand out against an entire orchestra during a concerto. The Rhodes piano, an electronic keyboard instrument popularized in the 1970s by jazz artist Chick Corea. (Photo: Docrobbie, CC BY-SA 4.0, via Wikimedia Commons) The Pianote studio piano – a Roland V-Piano Grand. Looks like a grand piano, but has digital capabilities useful for teaching piano on YouTube! The sophistication of acoustic pianos is probably why, until very recently, learning piano on a digital keyboard was frowned upon. But digital pianos have come a very long way in the past twenty years. Later in this article, we’ll see just how far they’ve come along and how they stack up against — even rival — their acoustic counterparts. 1.2 How Pianos Work. Understanding how pianos work — both acoustics and digitals — can help you navigate the (often overwhelming) piano market. Know what salespeople mean when they say things like “real spruce soundboard” and “semi-weighted key action”! How Acoustic Pianos Work. The modern acoustic piano is a sophisticated machine with over 12,000 moving parts. It’s easier to understand the mechanisms by watching a video, but we’ll summarize the key points here. What a key does when you press it is called action. Know this word well — it’ll come up a lot when you shop for a piano, acoustic or digital. In a nutshell, it works like this: You press a key with your finger.The key activates a series of intricate levers.The levers activate a hammer.The hammer strikes a string (or several strings, depending on the pitch of the note), creating a sound. A diagram of the piano action mechanism. (Source: Olek Remesz & Bechstein, CC BY-SA 3.0, via Wikimedia Commons) A note about pedals. Acoustic grand pianos usually have three pedals, the una corda (left), the sostenuto (middle), and the sustain (right). The una corda softens your playing, the sostenuto sustains a select number of notes, and the sustain pedal sustains all notes played while it’s pressed down. Upright acoustic pianos don’t tend to have a sostenuto pedal — instead, the middle pedal can be locked down and used as a “practice pedal” that significantly mutes sound for late-night practice. A quick rundown on how to use the sustain pedal. How Digital Pianos Work. A digital piano interprets the “input” of your hands to produce an output (sound) made from samples. Today, digital pianos are very sophisticated at interpreting what fingers do, and they can recreate things like dynamics and expression very well. This is because digital pianos have gotten very good at designing key actions that mimic those of acoustic pianos. That being said, how digital pianos work vary widely. Synthesizers with very simple actions can feel like pressing buttons on a game controller. Meanwhile, high-end performance keyboards can feel like you’re playing on a concert grand. Here’s some useful vocabulary to know about digital piano action: Fully-weighted action keys use a counterweight to simulate the feel of an acoustic piano’s key resistance.Unweighted (synth action) keys are spring-loaded and feel more like pressing buttons. They are most often used in synthesizers and workstations.Semi-weighted keys combine characteristics of spring-loaded and fully-weighted keys. Folks who don’t require fully-weighted keys and some Hammond organ players may choose semi-weighted keys.Hammer action keys are a newer innovation and use an actual hammer. These digital pianos are even closer to the touch and feel of an acoustic piano.“Graded keys” refers to how, in an acoustic piano, lower note keys are heavier and higher note keys are lighter. Some digital pianos also imitate this.Differences Between Acoustic and Digital Pianos. While the main difference between an acoustic and a digital piano is the action, another big difference is how the sound reaches your ear. Digital pianos use speakers while acoustic pianos use wooden soundboards. This is why many traditionalists think acoustic pianos are superior — the sound is created by the entire instrument resonating. When you play a grand piano with the lid up, all eight or so feet of piano (the size of a table) act as your speaker. In vertical upright pianos, the back of the piano acts as a wall-size speaker. A piano expert explains the differences between digital and acoustic pianos, including the sound differences of soundboards (entire instrument resonating) vs. speakers. Of course, you can hook a digital piano up to high-quality speakers or headphones and achieve a similar effect. But some would argue that you can’t match the natural, spruce soundboard of an acoustic grand. And then there are hybrid pianos… Hybrid Pianos. Hybrid pianos combine the best of both worlds. They often use acoustic piano action with a digital tone engine. The Kawai NV5 even uses a real spruce soundboard. These instruments aren’t cheap, but they’re an excellent choice for experienced musicians who require the nuanced power of an acoustic piano but don’t have the space or privacy to house a concert grand. Skip to this section if you’re interested in hybrid pianos. 1.3 What to Consider When Buying Your First Piano. Everyone has different needs, so how do you know whether the piano of your dreams is right for you? Here are some things to think about before you buy your first piano: 1. Type of Music You Want to Play. Do you want to play classical, jazz, or pop? Are you interested in creating your own songs? Classical and jazz pianists may prefer an acoustic or acoustic-like piano. This is because pianos with sophisticated actions are best for training your fingers to evoke the dynamic nuances in classical and jazz music. Pop music benefits from nuance too. Meanwhile, composers and music producers may require the connectivity and features of a synthesizer or workstation, perhaps even at the cost of key action. 2. Commitment Level. How long do you think you (or your child) will stick with learning the piano? This will affect how much money you should invest. If you’ve never played the piano before and have no idea how much you’ll like it, then it makes sense to invest in a cheaper, entry-level instrument. But if you’re sure you or someone in your household will play the piano for three to five years, you may want to invest in a mid-level, semi-professional instrument. If someone in your household sees themselves playing for ten years or more, and are an experienced, professional, or semi-professional player, then it makes sense to invest in a higher-tier instrument. 3. Budget. Let’s face it, pianos are expensive. That being said, you have a lot of choice here. The price range of pianos ranges from free to that of a luxury car. In general, the more you spend, the better the instrument will be. But just because a piano is super expensive doesn’t mean it’ll meet your needs. A Steinway concert grand is an excellent piano, but it’s not very helpful for someone who wants to record themselves playing pop songs with special effects. There are keyboards selling for as low as $50-70. Keyboards like these can be excellent to leave in a nursery room to gauge the interest of a very young child. But for adult beginners enthusiastic about getting started, we recommend going for keyboards in the $500-1500 range. 4. Space. The piano is a large piece of furniture, especially acoustic pianos. If your space is limited, you may want to invest in a smaller keyboard. Grand pianos are beautiful, but they’re also oddly-shaped. Meanwhile, acoustic uprights save space, but they’re not small either and require an expert to transport. But what if you have your heart set on playing classical music? Shouldn’t you invest in at least a baby grand? If you have the space and the budget, by all means purchase the piano of your dreams. But keyboard technology has advanced exponentially in recent years. Music students, performers on the road, and other experienced pianists can get a lot of value from compact, professional stage keyboards. These keyboards go for a fraction of the price of an acoustic and come jam-packed with features like portability, recording, and headphone output. So, don’t discount the value of a digital piano or keyboard. 5. The People You Live With. Lisa’s furbaby Rhodes! If you have people or animals at home who are sensitive to noise, you may want a digital piano with headphone capability. Finally, be a good neighbor and/or roommate and factor in the people you live with. Pianos with a headphone jack are useful for practicing all hours, and many upright pianos have a practice pedal for silent practice. The number of people in the household who will play the piano also affects your purchase. Heavy use from many pianists will naturally shorten your instrument’s lifespan. In this case, you may want to invest in a longer-lasting higher-end model. Take some time to consider all these factors and jot them down before you head to the music store. It’s also a good idea to measure out the space you intend to place your instrument and bring those numbers to the store. CHAPTER 2: HOW TO BUY AN ACOUSTIC PIANO. 2.1 Upright vs. Grand Pianos. You’ve probably encountered several upright pianos in your life, whether in your childhood home, at school, at church, or at a family friend’s house. For generations, upright pianos like the Yamaha U1 were familiar residents of family homes. On the other hand, grand pianos are some of the most elegant and beautiful things you can place in a home. They’re also very large, very loud, and very expensive. So, when is it a good time to get an upright, a grand, or neither? Let’s compare their differences in detail. Differences Between Grand Pianos and Upright Pianos. The size and price differences between grands and uprights is obvious, but less obvious are their differences in key action, sound quality, and pedals. Key action. In grand pianos, the hammer returns to its original position using gravity because the strings are laid horizontally. Upright pianos require springs to return hammers to rest. This means it’s easier to play fast and repetitive notes on a grand piano than it is on an upright. Here’s a demonstration by Yamaha: Grand piano horizontal key action. Upright piano vertical key action. Pedals. Grand pianos typically have three pedals: the una corda (left), the sostenuto (middle), and the sustain pedal (right). Upright pianos usually lack a sostenuto pedal and have a lockable silent practice pedal instead that significantly reduces volume. Sostenuto pedals are rarely used, even in advanced music, so if you’re a beginner, don’t worry too much about lacking one. Sound quality. Experts tend to agree that grand pianos have superior sound quality due to their size and shape. In a grand piano, sound leaves the piano from the top and bottom of the instrument. They’re also larger. These features give grand pianos superior tone and resonance. Grand pianos also have the same shape as other resonant instruments like violins and guitars. Box-shaped upright pianos, on the other hand, don’t conduct sound as well. Other Types of Pianos. Interestingly, there are several types of piano “in between” uprights and grands. Baby grands are one such species, but they’re somewhat controversial in the piano world. They seem bigger and grander, but their strings may be shorter than that of a good upright. Some experts argue that it’s better to buy a high-quality large upright than a baby grand. Others disagree. Manufacturers understand that there are serious piano players who simply don’t have the space for a grand piano. If that’s you, a grand-like upright like the Yamaha YUS-5 (my personal piano!) may be a good choice. It has a sostenuto pedal, a practice lever, and the action is designed to feel like a grand piano’s. So…should you buy a grand or an upright? If you’re a beginner, start with an upright piano if you want to buy acoustic. An upright piano is more affordable, takes up less space, and its acoustic features should be enough to help you develop your technique. Experienced pianists and performers can benefit from the key action of grand pianos. If you plan to play on other people’s pianos (such as in a concert hall), it would make sense to practice on a piano as similar to that as possible. 2.2 Cost of Acoustic Pianos. The cost of acoustic pianos is sometimes difficult to find because manufacturers and retailers obscure prices on websites. Here are a few MSRPs of beginner uprights courtesy of The Piano Buyer: PIANO (ACOUSTIC UPRIGHTS)MSRP (NEW)Kawai K-15$5,500-$6,000 USDYamaha U1$11,000-$14,000 USDYamaha B-series$4,000-$9,000 USDEssex EUP-108C$5,890Source: The Piano Buyer 2.2 New vs. Used Pianos. Buying a used piano can save you a lot of money and net you a high-quality piano. Plus, recycling is good for the planet! But buying used pianos can be intimidating. And it’ll take work. The best way to go about this is to shop with a professional or at least someone who’s experienced with pianos. An old, slightly worn piano, but seemingly in good condition. It’s also from a reputable, recognizable brand. You probably don’t want this piano. You can also visit your local music store and ask about trade-ins. Sometimes, people trade-in old pianos when they upgrade to a better model. These pianos should have been inspected by the store. If you’re not sure how far you’ll go with piano, ask your store about renting or rent-to-own programs. How to Assess a Used Piano. A demonstration on how to inspect an old piano. Some tips to get you started: Most experts put an acoustic piano’s lifespan at 40-60 years.If you don’t like the cabinetry of the piano, know that it will be very difficult to refurbish.If you can afford it, buy a used piano from a reputable brand you recognize.Always play a piano before you buy it. Test the tone, key action, and whether some keys are terribly out of tune. Ask questions like how often the piano was played, how often it was tuned, and how the original owners cared for the piano. You may even want to know the general environment the piano was housed in (ie. did it live in a humid area?). It’s also best to open up a piano and inspect the insides. Ideally, you’d have a professional do this, but if you’re keen on DIY-ing it, Piano Buyer has a very detailed step-by-step guide on how to do this yourself. Buying an acoustic piano is an expensive and time-consuming task. It can also be rewarding. But don’t forget that today, we have a vast array of digital pianos to choose from too. CHAPTER 3: HOW TO BUY A DIGITAL PIANO. 3.1 Types of Digital Pianos. Not too long ago, learning on anything but an acoustic piano was frowned upon. Not anymore. Today’s digital pianos and keyboards are very sophisticated instruments with incredible tone quality and authentic key action. They’re also portable, packed with features, and make it easy to record and practice quietly. But it’s also an enormous and overwhelming market. Let’s define a few things first. “Digital Pianos” vs. “Keyboards” vs. “Synthesizers” and Everything Else. Many different instruments fall in the “digital piano” category. The term “digital piano” is sort of a catch-all term for keyboard instruments that are not acoustic pianos. For ease of understanding, I’ll refer to all electronically-powered keyboard instruments as “digital pianos” in this article. While there are no official categories, in general, most pianos fall into one of these groups: A typical home console piano. Home console pianos often mimic an acoustic upright’s cabinetry and finish. These are ideal for beginners, families, and hobbyists who want a piano that fits in nicely with their home. Slab keyboards are very portable and can be set on a stand. These come in a range of quality, from beginner-oriented, bare-bones keyboards like Roland’s GO:KEYS to high-quality stage pianos like the Yamaha MX88 for professional use. Hybrid pianos use a combination of acoustic action and digital technology. These pianos tend to be pricey, but they satisfy discerning pianists while providing modern convenience. Synthesizers and workstation keyboards are jam-packed with music production features like different tones and special effects. These keyboards often don’t prioritize key action, but some higher-end models do. MIDI keyboards are essentially controllers and tend to be quite small, with very basic key action. 3.2 What to Look For in a Digital Piano. So, what should you look for in a digital piano? Well, this depends a lot on your particular needs. But for most beginners who want to develop a good foundation in piano technique, we have a few tips. Number of Keys. Try your best to get 88 keys. This is the standard number of keys on a grand piano. Having 88 keys at your disposal will allow you to play any song on the piano without running out of notes. While you may think you don’t need all 88 notes as a beginner, you’ll develop the capacity very soon to require all notes. Weighted, Touch-Sensitive Keys. When you’re first starting out, it’s vital to get authentic, weighted, touch-sensitive keys. That’s because touch is a skill you want to develop from your first day. Knowing how to manipulate the keys to produce nuanced, dynamic sound is a fundamental skill that you don’t want to lose out on by learning on a sub-par instrument. As we mentioned before, there are several types of digital piano key action. Here’s a review: Fully-weighted action keys use a counterweight to simulate the feel of an acoustic piano’s key resistance.Unweighted (synth action) keys are spring-loaded and feel more like pressing buttons. They are most often used in synthesizers and workstations.Semi-weighted keys combine characteristics of spring-loaded and fully-weighted keys. Folks who don’t require fully-weighted keys and some Hammond organ players may choose semi-weighted keys.Hammer action keys are a newer innovation and use an actual hammer. These digital pianos are even closer to the touch and feel of an acoustic piano.“Graded keys” refers to how, in an acoustic piano, lower note keys are heavier and higher note keys are lighter. Some digital pianos also imitate this. Tones and Polyphony. “Tones” refers to the unique sounds a digital keyboard is capable of making. Common examples include grand piano, electric piano, harpsichord, strings, choral, and drum kits. “Polyphony” (poly = many; phony = voices) refers to how many notes can be played at the same time. While there are only 88 keys on a keyboard, things like backing tracks, layering, and other effects may count as a voice. MIDI. MIDI (Musical Instrument Digital Interface) is a universal “language” that instruments use to “speak” with each other. It takes information from an instrument you play — such as how hard you play and at what pitch — and relays this to other instruments or a computer. Most digital pianos and keyboards these days have built-in classic MIDI ports and/or USB MIDI ports. With a USB port, you can plug a keyboard directly into a computer and start playing. With older MIDI ports, you’ll need an interface between the instrument and the computer to relay the message. MIDI capability is something you’d want to look for if you want to get into music production or learning with an app. 3.3 Hybrid Pianos. Hybrid pianos are exactly what they sound like — they’re a hybrid between acoustic and digital pianos. Hybrid pianos really are the best of both worlds. They often have features like headphone, MIDI connectivity, and different tones, while giving an authentic, acoustic experience. Some hybrid pianos even use real hammers and real soundboards. So what’s the downside with hybrid pianos? Well, they’re pretty expensive — anywhere from $5,000 to $20,000. With this amount of money, you can buy a very good quality upright piano or even a baby grand. Still, hybrid pianos are perfect for people who demand the tone and key action of an acoustic piano but also desire the convenience of headphones, recording, and a smaller instrument. Hybrid pianos tend to attract experienced musicians with space limitations. CHAPTER 4: BEST PIANOS AND KEYBOARDS FOR BEGINNERS. 4.1 Top Piano Brands. Here’s a question you may be mulling over: does the brand of your piano matter? Pianos are similar to cars in the sense that the most well-known brands are European, American, and Japanese. Chances are, you’ve heard of these names: Steinway & Sons, Bösendorfer, Yamaha, Fazioli, Hoffman, Bechstein, Kawai. Are some piano brands better than others? Not necessarily. Are they different? Yes. Brand and Sound. Brands certainly sound different. For example, Yamahas have a brighter sound while Steinways have a warmer, mellower tone. Yamaha and Kawai dominate the hybrid piano market, while Roland, Casio, and Nord are the big players in the keyboard and synthesizer markets. These differences appeal to different people, and there’s no right or wrong answer to which brand is better. The only thing that matters is what matters to YOU. Solid Brands for Beginners. Now, some brands are more reputable than others in the sense that they’ve been in the business longer and have had more time to innovate. These days, you can find many cheap, mass-produced instruments from brands you’ve never heard of. The prices of these instruments may be tempting — and if you’re not picky, they may be just what you need — but remember that you get what you pay for. On the other hand, here are some established, dependable brands to look out for as a beginner: Digital PianosAcoustic PianosHybrid PianosSynthesizersYamahaYamahaYamahaMoogRolandKawaiKawaiKorgCasioHoffman, Zimmerman (by Bechstein)YamahaNordEssex, Boston (by Steinway)While knowing brands can be helpful, many of these brands (such as Yamaha) cater to a wide clientele and it can be overwhelming to sift through their entire catalogue. That’s why we’ve decided to share our experience and knowledge and give you solid examples of piano models you can consider! 4.2 Best Pianos for Beginners. You May Also Like: Does Price Matter? Comparing Cheap vs. Expensive Digital Pianos Many beginners who dabble with piano first before committing will start with a digital piano or keyboard, so let’s look at keyboards first. Digital Pianos for Beginners. Roland GO:KEYS ($329 USD) The Roland GO:KEYS is a compact and lightweight portable keyboard. It’s perfect for beginners just sussing out the piano or more experienced hobbyists who want a portable keyboard to toy with. This 61-key keyboard has made a welcome appearance in many of our videos, and for good reason! It’s dependable, it looks cool, and it does the job. Yamaha P125 ($649 USD) The Yamaha P125 is another solid, dependable keyboard that’s perfect for beginners. It has a good-sounding bass and is capable of producing a wide dynamic range with its weighted, touch-sensitive keys. While the features are pretty basic, if you want to master the fundamentals, this is a solid keyboard. You can see Lisa’s review of the instrument here. Casio Privia PX-S3000 ($849 USD) The Casio Privia PX-S3000 is a beautiful, sleek instrument. It also comes with more features than the previous keyboards with 700 tones and 200 rhythms. This keyboard also has a nice, authentic, textured finish. You can watch Kaitlyn and Lisa talk about the Casio Privia here. Yamaha P-515 ($1,499 USD) If you want to level up from the P-125, consider the P-515, which takes piano authenticity up a notch. It features samples from the Yamaha CFX and Bösendorfer Imperial pianos, both well-known and beloved concert grands. This piano also includes escapement and more authentic, wood-feel keys. Roland FP90X ($2,199 USD) The white model of this keyboard is absolutely gorgeous. When Kaitlyn (a beginner) tried several pianos and was asked to pick one, she chose the FP90X without hesitation. She noted that the playing experience was “smooth” and the sound “full.” At a higher price point, the FP90X should satisfy both beginner and experienced pianists. For more thorough reviews of these pianos (and others!) check out these reviews we’ve made: Does price matter? Lisa and Kaitlyn check out keyboards across a wide price range. Lisa reviews three popular beginner keyboards and explains what to look for. Lisa takes a field trip to the music store and walks through how to pick a piano (and later, a pumpkin!). Acoustic Uprights for Beginners. We don’t endorse any acoustic uprights in particular, but there are a few solid models that have graced the living rooms of families for generations. Reviewing a $4,000 Yamaha U1 from the 1980s. Yamaha U1 ($11,000 -14,000 USD) The Yamaha U1 is a popular entry-level acoustic piano that you’ve probably seen in a childhood friend’s home if they had piano lessons. It’s a solid, dependable piano and it lasts a long time. Folks who want to level up can choose the U3. Different models of the Yamaha B series. Yamaha B series ($4,000 – 9,000 USD) The Yamaha B series is another affordable, beginner-friendly series of instruments. These pianos are very compact, which makes them ideal for people who live in smaller spaces who still want an acoustic piano. Bonus: you can add the ability to plug headphones into these pianos! CHAPTER 5: PIANO ACCESSORIES & MAINTENANCE. 5.1 Accessories. Most pianos are pretty self-contained. Beginners don’t absolutely need amplifiers, wires, or even music stands. Still, you may be interested in what accessories are available to augment your experience. Stands . Some digital keyboards have built-in music stands, but if yours doesn’t, you’ll want to invest in a reliable, hardy stand. Seriously — invest in a good stand! As anyone who’s played in a school band can attest to, flimsy stands that flop over the moment you turn a page are no fun. If you play on a slab or portable keyboard, you’ll also want to invest in a good stand to place it on. Again, make sure it’s not too wobbly. When you’re a beginner, you want to focus on your technique; avoid being bogged down by unreliable gear. Metronome. Most digital pianos come with a built-in metronome, but if you have an acoustic piano, you’ll want one. I know, students hate metronomes, but they do make you better! Today, there are metronome apps you can download for free and Google even has a free metronome tool if you search “metronome.” Pedals. The sustain pedal creates the signature piano sound. If you play with a keyboard and don’t have one, sooner or later, you’ll want a sustain pedal. The sustain pedal can also make you sound better when you’re first learning a song! (Obligatory remark: some teachers frown upon using the pedal too much because it’s “cheating,” but in my opinion, if you’re just playing for fun, you might as well sound good!) Benches. While you technically can play the piano sitting on anything, having a dedicated piano bench will significantly improve your experience. Once you advance a little, you’ll need a bench that can handle you moving around, tilting, and stretching your body. Some piano benches allow you to adjust the height too, so everyone from your 6’4″ uncle to your kid sister can play the same piano! Software. If you plan to get into recording and you have the gear to do so, you may want to look into digital audio workstations (or DAWs). DAWs are software for recording, mixing, and creating music. Sort of like Photoshop for sound! Music production is its own world with its own language. If you plan to get into production, prepare to do lots of research (and shopping!). Some DAWs like Audacity (free, open source) and Garageband (free for Mac) are very accessible and quite powerful. Professional quality software like Ableton and Logic Pro will cost more. Want to write down your arrangements? Musescore (free!) and the free version of Sibelius can help you make music notation quickly, easily, and painlessly. 5.2 Piano Maintenance and Tuning. Digital pianos are pretty low-maintenance. They also never go out of tune! However, acoustic pianos require a little upkeep to maximize their lifespan. How to Clean Your Acoustic Piano. Here are some cleaning tips from two top piano manufacturers, Steinway & Sons and Yamaha: Don’t put stuff on your piano! Especially drinks! Disinfecting. After Covid, it’s a smart idea to keep high-touch surfaces nice and clean, especially if you have many people and visitors using your piano. Steinway recommends hydrogen peroxide as a safe cleaning agent for piano keys, while Yamaha warns against using alcohol-based cleaners. Whichever you choose, wipe the piano dry when you’re done. Polishing and finishing. Since different pianos have different finishes, consult with your seller on how to best care for your piano. Both Yamaha and Steinway seem to agree that if your piano can be cleaned with water and then wiped dry, stick to plain water. General upkeep. An occasional, simple wipe-down with a dry, microfibre cloth — like the type used to clean glasses — should keep your piano in good condition. Also avoid placing objects on the piano; this can affect both the instrument’s finish and its sound. Piano Tuning. Get your acoustic piano tuned by a pro. Pianos are complex (and often expensive!) machines, so you don’t want to risk harming your instrument with DIY. Here’s a fascinating video on what goes into a piano tuning. Interestingly, tuners aren’t after a scientifically accurate tuning per se. Rather, because of the way our ears work, the tuner’s job is to create the impression that a piano is in tune. Most sources I consulted recommend that acoustic pianos be tuned once every six months or twice a year. How often your piano should be tuned can depend on your local climate, and new pianos may require more frequent tunings in the first few years of their lives. CHAPTER 6: FAQ. 6.1 FAQ. Are acoustic pianos really better?How do I know if a piano is good if I’m a beginner?How do I buy a piano for a child?Are old/used pianos worth it?How do I move a piano?How long do pianos last?What’s a piano’s resale value? Are pianos good investments?How can I resell an old piano?How much should I spend on a piano? Are acoustic pianos really better? 20+ years ago? Yes. Today? Not really. There will always be piano purists who think acoustic pianos are superior, period. Indeed, digital pianos will never match an acoustic’s sound because they’re not acoustic! However, digital pianos are giving acoustics a real run for their money. Today, they feature authentic feels, great sound, and are compact and packed with features. So, while experienced and professional pianists should definitely consider an acoustic grand, a hobbyist — even an advanced one — may never need to graduate from a high quality digital piano. 🧠🎹 Food for thought: Digital pianos are making music more accessible. Indeed, for most of history, piano was a hobby exclusive to the wealthy. So we’re very excited for a world where more people can play! How do I know if a piano is good if I’m a beginner? This is a great question. If you lack experience with pianos, it may be tough to figure out what to look for. Definitely go to a real-life piano store and try as many pianos as possible. If you can, bring someone with more piano experience with you. Talk to salespeople from different stores — if they have your best interests in mind, they’ll take the time to explain the differences between instruments instead of just pushing the most expensive option at you. At the end of the day, piano quality is very subjective. Some people like the sound of Kawai; others, Bösendorfer. Someone else may want a Steinway because Billy Joel plays a Steinway. As you progress further into your piano journey, you’ll develop your own taste. If procuring your first piano feels stressful, opt for a low-cost, entry-level model from a reputable brand like Yamaha or Roland and you should be in good hands! How do I buy a piano for a child? Avoid buying your child a toy piano. Toy pianos are just that — toys. Piano keys are a standard size and, unlike violins which come in different sizes for different bodies, there’s just one standard size piano. Knowing how to play a standard keyboard from day one will allow young players to avoid problems later down the road. When shopping for children, consider how many people in addition to the child will make use of the piano. It makes sense to invest in a better piano if mom or dad wants to learn too! If your kiddo is the only one interested, then it may make sense to get a cheaper model and see where their interest is a year or two down the road. After all, kids’ interests can change quickly. Keyboards are probably better choices for children because you can get a height-adjustable stand. A height-adjustable bench and a footrest will also keep your child comfortable and reinforce good technique and posture. Are old/used pianos worth it? Maybe. It really depends on the piano’s specific circumstances. How old is it? How well was it maintained? What’s the brand? Take a look at the new vs. used section of this article for more information on buying used pianos. How do I move a piano? Sometimes, people forget to factor in the transportation costs of an acoustic piano. I can’t recommend employing a professional enough, both for your safety and the safety of your instrument. Moving a piano may also require re-tuning. If you absolutely must move a piano yourself, invest in the right tools and get help! This video from the Home Depot offers some good advice. How NOT to move a piano! How long do pianos last? Averaging out the numbers I have seen, a typical acoustic piano lasts about 40-60 years. A heavily used piano may not live as long, while a well-taken-care-of antique piano could be working well after 100 years. Digital pianos are trickier to estimate lifespans because technology changes so quickly. A cutting-edge keyboard today may be obsolete in five years’ time. Like many other answers on this page, the answer is honestly “it depends.” What’s a piano’s resale value? Are pianos good investments? Like cars, pianos tend to depreciate. This can be due to a myriad of factors: the condition of the instrument, how it was stored and maintained, the brand, the original retailer, etc. Treat used pianos like used cars. Some pianos can hold their value very well or even appreciate. But this is very rare and only if the instrument is of a prestigious brand, is very unique, or something interesting happens to the market. Piano Buyer has a helpful schedule of estimated piano depreciation according to different factors. This all being said, if you have an old piano lying around, don’t necessarily give it away for free! Consider reselling it. How can I resell an old piano? Many music retailers have trade-in programs where you can upgrade from one instrument to another by selling back your original model and saving on your next model. But what if you’ve inherited an old piano and are blurry about its origins? Unfortunately, older pianos can be difficult to sell, especially if they’re out of tune or are made by an obscure brand. Factoring in moving costs, buyers may be reluctant to spend too much on a used, low-quality piano. If your piano looks like this, it’s probably ready to sell as scrap!🔥🎹 HOT TIP! The Pierce Piano Atlas is a thorough database of almost every piano ever made, perfect if you’re unsure of the origins of your piano. If, after advertising on Facebook or Craigslist, you can’t find a good price for your piano, try selling to a dealer. If that doesn’t work, consider donating your piano to an organization in need. Community centres, churches, schools, and after-school youth programs may appreciate a free piano! If all else fails, consider selling your piano for scrap. How much should I spend on a piano? We’ve mentioned that beginners should aim for a $500-1,500 first digital piano, give or take personal preferences. In general, a $500-1,500 digital piano should provide you adequate key action, number of keys, and basic features. The prices of new acoustic pianos can be opaque. Retailers often obscure prices on their websites and ask you to call in. Here are the manufacturer suggested retail prices for a few popular entry-level models: PIANO (ACOUSTIC UPRIGHTS)MSRP (NEW)Kawai K-15$5,500-$6,000 USDYamaha U1$11,000-$14,000 USDYamaha B-series$4,000-$9,000 USDEssex EUP-108C$5,890Source: Piano Buyer Further Resources.

BodyShould you buy a piano, digital piano or keyboard this Black Friday? By Daryl Robertson published 3 November 21 With the crazy deals we are expecting this November, is Black Friday the right time to splash the cash on a new set of keys? (Image credit: Getty/Emma Farrer) Whether you fancy yourself as the next Beethoven, Elton John or Herbie Hancock, a good quality piano is essential. Obviously, the choice of an acoustic piano, digital piano, stage piano or beginner keyboard is entirely up to you and will depend on factors such as budget, the amount of space you have in the house and your playing requirements - although, if you plan on buying an instrument this Black Friday, the budget may not have to be such a concern. Black Friday is easily the biggest sales event of the year and sees hearty discounts on everything from consumer tech such as phones and laptops to fashion, home furnishings and more importantly, musical instruments! We have been covering this epic sales event for several years, so we have a fair idea of what to expect this year. The Black Friday music deals kick-off on the 26 November, with Cyber Monday bookending this intense weekend of discounts. So if you are unsure if this Cyber Weekend is the right time to splash the cash on a Black Friday keyboard piano deal, we’ve put together five reasons why we believe there is no better time to buy. 1. You’ll save big . Okay, so this may be the most obvious reason to pick up a piano or keyboard on Black Friday, but it’s worth pointing out. The sheer size of the discounts available on this particular weekend - and often a few weeks before the main event, too - are sometimes just too hard to resist. The end of November sees every music retailer fight it out in a bid to get a hold of your hard-earned cash by slashing prices on top named brands such as Yamaha, Casio, Roland and Kawai. As all the top manufacturers are constantly updating and improving their products, it means the retailers need to keep up. So Black Friday is the perfect opportunity for them to clear the decks and move on the existing stock in anticipation of next year’s new models. Now, this doesn’t mean you are going to get a sub-par product, as sometimes very little changes from year to year - it can be new sounds, a tweak to the key action, or even just cosmetic changes. The savings here are almost guaranteed to be greater than anything you’d see at any other time of the year, meaning there is no better time to take the plunge and pick up the piano, digital piano or keyboard you’ve had your eye on for the past few months.(Image credit: Getty/Vejaa)2. You can get more for your money . As the prices are so heavily discounted, your original budget can now go further - and in some cases, a lot further. So It’s worth taking the time to research a few models above how much you are looking to spend, in case they go on sale. Say, for example, your pre-Black Friday budget would extend to a semi-weighted keys stage piano, well at the end of November, it may get you an 88-note fully-weighted option - so it certainly pays to do your research early so you can spot a good deal when you see it. 3. Accessories will be on sale too. To get the most out of your new piano or keyboard, you need to invest in a number of extras, such as a bench, stand, sustain pedal, headphones and music books. The problem is the cost of these essential piano accessories can quickly spiral out of control and take a massive chunk out of your budget. Luckily then, you’ll find hefty discounts on all of these items this Cyber Weekend, with some retailers even offering bundle deals when you purchase a piano or keyboard. While opting for a cheaper bench, keyboard stand or music stand is more than acceptable, we highly recommend splashing out a little extra on a quality set of headphones. Not only will this allow you to practice in silence - giving your family or flatmates a much-needed break from Für Elise - but it will also mean you can hear your piano in all its glory. Check out our comprehensive guide to the best headphones for digital pianos, to see what models we recommend. (Image credit: Future)4. You can get a deal on lessons, too. With advancements in technology, it really is the best time to learn the piano or keyboard. There are a number of high-quality and professional online piano learning apps available, and Black Friday may be the best time to sign up with sizable discounts on yearly subscriptions.These intuitive apps can offer an enjoyable and interactive way to learn while allowing you to master your favourite songs at your own pace - and with so many available, you are sure to find a service that suits you. So, if the thought of a stern piano teacher making you practice scales over and over, fills you with dread, then maybe the fun - and modern - approach of learning apps is what you need to take your piano playing to the next level. 5. It’s the perfect time to pick up Christmas gifts . Now, you don’t need us to tell you Christmas is right around the corner, so it’s worth getting prepared. If you have a loved one expecting Santa to bring a piano or keyboard down the chimney, then Black Friday is the perfect time to get that gift crossed off the list - while saving money. It could be very difficult to get a hold of certain items this year, as a combination of a global pandemic and issues with micro-chips has led to stock shortages, and the ongoing HGV driver shortage has resulted in very long delivery times - so make sure you are prepared. If you see a deal on a product you were looking for, don’t hesitate! Picking up a piano or keyboard early could save you a lot of grief this Christmas. Find more epic deals on a range of music gear below .

I'm a firm believer that most of the world's problems can be solved with a Gibson SG and a catastrophically loud amp. Before writing about music gear for a living as a Junior Deals Writer on MusicRadar, I worked in music retail for 7 years, giving advice on guitars, basses, drums, pianos, and PA systems. I also have a love for recording and live audio production; I'm a fully qualified sound engineer with experience working in various venues in Scotland, where I live.

BodyBuying a Piano Buying a second hand piano is no easy option. It may look good on the outside, but could well be rubbish on the inside. Buying off the internet, without seeing or playing the instrument is a gamble, you need to play and listen to the piano first before you buy, to make sure its the right one for you.There are so many things that could go wrong with a piano, that a simple purchase of say �100 could leave you with a bill of �1500. All of the sales at Richard Parker Pianos are top quality, pre-owned, modern instruments many only a few years old.I have NEVER bought a Piano from the Internet, from a Sale Room or Auction House, All my Pianos are bought from private houses where I can see and play them. We now no longer sell the older pianos due to the high cost of transport, which we sub-contract, and the work needed to put the older pianos in some sort playable condition. Once you have looked on our web site always ring should you wish to call and see any of the pianos.

The Keyboard Piano shop is run by Martin Carline. Martin has been playing the piano for over 25 years, and currently spends his time teaching, shooting videos for tutorials, and reviewing pianos and keyboards. Using Martin’s expert knowledge and experience our shop is dedicated to providing you with professional advice on choosing digital pianos, keyboards and accessories. Martin reviews a selection of recommended pianos and keyboards which can then be ordered through our preferred third-party supplier at excellent prices with a range of delivery options. Our reviews provide detailed information about numerous quality pianos and keyboards, including – sound, touch and feel, price, features and much more. No matter what age and ability you are, Martin’s reviews will help you decide what’s right for you. Through Martin’s many years of playing on hundreds of pianos and keyboards, his reviews are able to provide you with an honest appraisal to ensure you are making the right choice. It doesn’t matter whether you are a complete beginner looking to buy their very first piano or keyboard, or whether you have been playing for many years and are looking for an upgrade – Martin’s reviews cover all aspects to help you decide. Nowadays digital pianos are more popular than acoustic, and provide a much better sound for the money you spend. That’s why many of the reviews cover digital pianos and keyboards, as well as numerous accessories like stools and stands, headphones etc. The reviews and instruments on offer aim to provide you with great variety and choice to ensure you can consider all options available to you. From starter keyboards to high end quality digital pianos, we’ve got everything covered. Some digital pianos and keyboards don’t come with the required stand or stool, which can make for a very frustrating first day with your new instrument. That’s why we’ve also provided lots of accessories for you to choose from including stools/benches, stands, headphones and much more. Our keyboard piano shop also provides helpful advice for parents looking to buy a keyboard or digital piano for their child. Whether you are looking to buy a budget keyboard to see if your child likes playing, or whether you need to make sure it will last for a few years before you need to upgrade, Martin has provided the information you need.

BodyI want to sell my piano So you are thinking of selling your piano. You need the space, redecorating, and want it out of the way, or simply that the time has come, it has not been played for a very long time and there is always somewhere else to stand the photographs. Information we require. For us to be able to give you an idea of whether your piano is something we would be interested in purchasing from you we require certain pieces of information. In the sections below, there is a form which you can fill in and submit which will give us some of the information we require. Often we are able to give you an answer directly, but it is also advantageous for us to have some images which can be emailed to us at the following address : [email protected] The basic information which we need is as follows : The Manufacturer - found on the lid which covers the keys The Case Style - Is the case Traditional or Modern ? The Case Finish - Is the case satin or polyester (shiny) The Age / Serial Number - found on the iron frame inside The Stringing - Overstrung ? Strings cross in a V shape The Condition - Is your piano in good condition ? Collection of your piano. If we decide to purchase your piano, you will be delighted to know that we cover the transport costs for it's collection. Part of the enquiry form asks you for information regarding the level (ground floor, first floor, outside steps, lift etc) so that our transporters know what they are in for. This information is important to us, because we tailor our transport routes and number of crew to fit the jobs we have. If we are advised that there are no stairs, and we find that there are and we only have two crew members on the van, due to safety restrictions we would be unable to effect the collection. Payment. Our usual and preferred method of payment is via BACS with a scheduled clearance on the date of collection. Should you wish for an alternative method, please discuss this at the time we make the agreement to purchase your piano. At a Glance. Want to upgrade? We welcome Part Exchange Need the space ? No longer played ? Start here. This form is designed to be a starting point in the process of our possibly buying your piano. Please give as much detail as possible. Buying Enquiry Form.

HOW TO AVOID BUYING A BAD PIANO
WHAT TO BUY INSTEAD?
H2WithAnchors
Body9 Reasons NOT to buy that cheap or free piano online! Never agree to buy a piano that is being offered cheap or free online. Take a huge step back, engage your brain (ignore your heart) and keep reading and you will soon be an expert in avoiding dreadful pianos. Here are 9 reasons why you should probably walk away from that cheap or free piano you’ve seen online. 1. IT’S A BIG STINKY BROKEN HUNK OF JUNK. If you’ve found a piano that is big, old, brown and cheap (or free) it is probably a massive hunk of junk that smells like an old sofa and doesn’t work. You should walk away and read the rest of this article. 2. IT’S AN OVER-DAMPED PIANO. Typical asking price £0-£200. Over-damped pianos are the worst of the worst and there are hundreds of them being offer for sale (or free) online. Lift the top lid of the piano and if you see a long piece of wood just like in the photo below then you know it’s over-damped and you should close the lid and walk away. The best pianos are “under-damped” which do not have that long plank of wood above the hammers. A £100 electric keyboard is usually a better choice than most over-damped pianos. 3. IT’S A STRAIGHT-STRUNG PIANO. Typical asking price £0-£200. A good quality piano should have strings that cross over themselves. If you find a straight-strung piano you should walk away. Here is how to spot the difference. If all of the strings inside the piano run parallel to each other then you have found a straight-strung piano and you should walk away. If the strings cross over each other then you’ve found a cross-strung piano and this is much better than straight-strung. This photo shows an over-strung piano (good) that is also under-damped (also good). A £100 electric keyboard is better than most straight-strung pianos. 4. IT ONLY HAS 85 KEYS. A quick way to know if a piano might be rubbish is to find out how many keys it has. 88 keys is the full-size standard design of a modern piano. If you find a piano with 85 keys, put the brakes on and proceed with caution. 5. IT STINKS! Many pianos in this price range are disgusting, dusty, musty, mouldy, filthy, mouth-eaten bangers. They will make your entire house (and all of your clothes) smell like an old sofa and they can trigger eczema or respiration flare-ups (they give me itchy eye lids). A cheap electric keyboard is much better than an old stink-bomb piano. 6. IT HAS DODGY KEYS. You must play every single key a few times and check if any of them get stuck down or if any of the keys make unexpected sounds. Play each key one a time. Does it sound honky tonk (howling out of tune)? If any keys feel or sound a bit wonky you must walk away. If you think it could be a brilliant piano with minor issues you should definitely hire a piano technician to inspect it for you. Don’t impulse-buy it a piano! 7. IT “NEEDS TUNING”. If the seller says “it needs tuning” or “needs some TLC” or “some notes need attention”, please let me translate that for you. What they are really saying is “this piano needs breaking up into small pieces and putting in a skip.” A cheap electric keyboard is much better than a broken acoustic piano. 8. IT’S A TINY PIANO. Tiny pianos can be tempting but they almost always have a rubbish action and terrible tone. They can be a good choice if you just want a nice conversation piece in your home but you shouldn’t expect a young student to learn to play on one. Here are some of the common tiny pianos you might see offered for £200-£800 online. Kemble Minx Tempting because they can look quite cute but they are not up to standard, musically. Eavestaff minipiano minipianette This photo is my own Eavestaff from my living room back in 2006. It was a nice conversation piece but not a nice piano. Cute but dreadful. Just leave it. Bentley Nice cars. Terrible pianos. Walk away. Zender These often look cool with funky veneer but they are not great to play. If you want something nice to look at, fine get one. If you want something nice to play on, turn around, walk away. If you have £200-£800 to spend on a piano you would be much better off getting a used digital piano than any of the pianos listed above. Please see our digital pianos vs acoustic pianos article for advice on which models to buy. 9. IT’S A MODERN COMPACT PIANO. These are typically priced between £500-£2000 and it is this price range where you are most at risk of losing a serious amount of money. Many compact pianos have the full 88 keys, they look good and they don’t take up as much visual space in a room as a full-sized upright piano. However, most of them are not worth the asking price and some of them are a complete liability that will give you nothing but pain and regret. Compact pianos are frequently described as “excellent condition” and “only 10 years old” or “little used”. The reason they are “little used” is because they are usually zero fun to play. Manufacturers know that people buy these type of pianos because of their small size and good looks and so they put most of their focus on the cosmetic side of things instead of concentrating on making a good musical instrument. Compact pianos usually look a bit like this: So be careful. If you see a small piano that looks great and costs anywhere from £500-£2000+ it could be dreadful. Do not buy it without hiring a piano technician to inspect it for you. Remember, a piano is usually something you keep for many years. Don’t rush the buying process or you may have years of regret ahead of you. The good news is that if you have a budget of £500-£2000+ then you can very easily get a high-end digital piano instead. Please ready my article: digital pianos vs acoustic pianos article HOW TO AVOID BUYING A BAD PIANO. Never agree to buy any piano until you have done AT LEAST TWO of the following Hire a piano technician to inspect the piano for you Visit the piano in person Listen down the phone to the piano being played Play every single key several times WHAT TO BUY INSTEAD? If you have less than £3000 to spend you should PROBABLY buy an electric keyboard or digital piano instead (we don’t sell digital pianos but they are usually much better than most pianos found for sale cheap online).

Body8 Things to Consider When Buying A Digital Piano for Beginners | Guest Post beginnerRobbie ParkerMay 23, 2018 Share If you have decided to buy a new piano for learning purpose, then this guide is for you. This simple guide can help the beginners to buy a digital piano. You will know almost everything about which digital piano will suit your needs. So, let’s start! Sensitivity and Response of the Keys. The keys of a digital piano refer to how much weight and responsiveness the keyboard possesses. While no digital piano can perfectly mimic the resistance of acoustic piano keys when struck, there are plenty of great digital pianos that have highly realistic key actions. To begin, look for a piano with a counterbalanced keyboard or a hammer effect keyboard. A graduated keyboard also provides a bit more realism, and some pianos allow you to adjust the responsiveness of the keys according to your liking, which is an exciting plus point. A beginner should have an 88 weighted keys keyboard. Sound Quality. The next thing you need to evaluate is the tone and sound of the digital piano. Beginners won't need high-end tones and sounds, but higher the budget, the better will be the quality. If you are a beginner looking for a digital piano, then keep in mind that you will improve your skills, only when you get a piano with the best tone and sound texture for your budget. The Sampling. Digital pianos reproduce sounds that have been recorded directly from acoustic pianos. The more quality the keyboard has, the greater the number of samples is taken for each sound effects. Besides, advanced models take different samples for the same note. This is because the texture of the sound is not exactly same on an acoustic piano if you vary the hue. Each brand has a specific system. For example, the "Supernatural" of Roland, or the Pure CF of Yamaha, is the most acclaimed. Most digital pianos include several basic piano sounds. Polyphony. It's the number of notes you can play at the same time. The most basic models start with a polyphony of 32 notes, and it ranges up to more than 200 for the best models. So why do we need so many notes if we only have only ten fingers? For the "sustain" pedal. The best example of how polyphony affects it is in the following demo. Notice how the bass chord played at the beginning continues to sound despite the rapid succession of diminishing high notes. Speakers. The size, quantity, and power of the speakers will influence the audio output of the piano which includes the quality as well as the volume. As a contrast, with the increase in speaker size, the overall weight of the keyboard also increases gradually. Sound Library. Majority of pianists upload their interpretations to the web mostly as a freebie. Thanks to the connectivity option of digital pianos you can efficiently utilize those interpretations in your model. Many piano manufacturers include some built-in music libraries, and some of them are free or while many of them come with a price (they can be quite expensive). However, the music library does not depend on the piano model you choose. So, if you are primarily interested in recording your sessions for YouTube or any other video platform, you should not worry too much about the sound that is incorporated into your piano because you have the possibility to change it in postproduction. Materials. Consideration of the built materials is also crucial for beginners when it comes to investing in a digital piano. The cheaper models will offer plastic keys, while mid-range or expensive models will offer synthetic ivory built keys. The later key types improve your grip, in addition to providing a realistic execution style to help you reduce the difference between a digital piano and an acoustic piano. In addition to the materials, it is also useful for beginners to buy a digital piano that offers touch sensitivity and counterbalanced keys. These key types will improve your ability to play expressively, as well as develop the finger technique appropriately while you learn. Portability. It is essential to think about the portability. If you need a piano for your home, you can easily buy a heavy-weight digital piano considering the space you have in your home. But, if you need to travel with the keyboard, you should go for a portable type. There are four main styles of the digital piano: vertical, contemporary, portable and stage. Vertical pianos look much like an acoustic piano, with the speakers placed in the stand's case. Contemporary styles look less like a piano and much more like a standard keyboard. Portable and stage pianos are easy to carry types and can provide a much stronger sound for musicians who expect more volume and get the most out of them. Each of these styles has their own positive aspects, but it is essential to know what digital piano style you will be needing before investing in any one of them. The digital stage pianos are designed specifically for professional performers since they require a louder sound and need to carry them everywhere they perform. Want to read more from Robbie?
