Williams Allegro 88-key Digital piano?
« on: August 08, 2012, 11:41:22 AM »
Do you guys recommend the Williams Allegro 88-key Digital piano? I just want to know how each key sounds like in it's different tones. If any of you own this piano can you guys do a video about showing how each key sound like? And what is the tone that is close to the sound of a grand piano if you guys know it? Thanks.

Pretty much I only suggest to people Roland, Kawai, Yamaha and a remote Korg now and then, in that order and depending on budget and sound requirements. For some what reasonable grand piano sound right now I feel Kawai is tough to beat FWIW. You have to move to high end yamaha and Roland to approach or exceed the sound of Kawai.

Have a look at the new ES 7 at Kawai site, listen to the demo sounds and see if you disagree.

Depressing the pedal on an out of tune acoustic piano and playing does not result in tonal color control or add interest, it's called obnoxious.

Okay, thanks for the replies guys, I think I'll just look for another piano other than that. What do you guys recommend that is not very pricey?

It would help if you defined your budget. But you can extend your budget with both Yamaha and Kawai as they offer 6 month payment plans that I believe are interest free ( not 100% sure of the interest free part but I thought that's what I heard). Available at any reputable dealer.

You don't want a junky digital, it will feel and sound just as you paid for it. Most digitals over $1000 are pretty decent these days and who knows what's coming for 2013. I mentioned the Korg SP250 in your other thread you started, so have a look there ( $699). No other digital right now in it's price range has as good an action, again who knows in 2013 what will come out.
