Digital piano for a beginner
« on: May 17, 2015, 07:29:35 PM »
Hey guys. I'm new to the forum and completely new to music. Started my piano classes last week and im looking forward to buy a digital piano to get started.

I was kinda decided to buy a Yamaha p-115 (had this tip from a friend of mine) but after doing alot of research around internet forums, i saw another good options..

Casio PX-350
Yamaha P-115
Kawai ES 100
Roland F-20

Which of these do you guys think that has more of a key action and sound like an accoustic piano?
I mean, i don't care much to other accessories and etc other than a sound and keys close to a real piano.

I have a very busy schedule and i'm a total beginner.. so trying those out doesn't make much of a difference to me.. they all look the same.

Hi andrecsh,

In addition to having a pre-Soviet Petrof grand here, I own a Roland F-110 to avoid disturbing neighbors at odd hours.  For the amount of money I was willing to spend on a digital, it was the best of the ones I tested out.  No digital compares to the real thing, of course.


Mvh,
Michael

Thanks michael. I went shopping and got a good deal on a Roland F130R and ended up buying it.

Hi andresch,

That sounds like it might be a better model than mine! ;D

One thing that has impressed me with this Roland is the durability.  It has endured several years of the "abuse" of my playing without any mechanical issues.

One can look at the 2015 price when new [$1300?] and if it lasts seven years, as I suspect this Roland will, that comes to less than $200 a year for digital piano costs, with no tunings, regulations, et c.

I am glad you found a good deal on one!


Mvh,
Michael
