hi boyah

i have a ~$500 budget for a digital piano

(i absolutely despise the term """keyboard""" because of the ambiguity)

Anyone have any experience? Anyone have any recommendations? :music_and_others_2_9940_3732_

WHAT ARE YOU LOOKING FOR

as long as it has at least 5 octaves and is velocity sensitive, it'll probably fit your needs. the thing about instruments is that if you plan on practicing, you need to be sure it's an instrument you enjoy playing. go to a music store and try some out

Velocity sensitive means you can play loud/soft by hitting the keys harder/softer that's all

What Pepsi said sounds good but also bonus points for midi so you can use as a synth controller if you so desire

A midi output will let you use it as a controller for software instruments, synthesizers, etc.

That means it'll be the keyboard and you'll hook it up to another thing that makes the sounds

a final question before i visit the musical instrument emporium

Digital piano owners, why'd you pick your model over all the others? befuddlement

oh and also is $500-$600 a reasonable budget

Majorana's Incantation

also lol, even digital piano doesn't avoid the ambiguity since technically every piano ever is digital

these should really be called ePianos, as in

"i am a rising ePianist"

ikanaide

i bought a casio recently and it's ok. the tone sounded a bit weird to me at first but i got more or less used to it. the sustain wasn't very good i actually wouldn't recommend it but it's adequate for my level of practice and i was too lazy to return it cuz it's a big heavy thing. it was out of that or yamaha p45 i wish i tried the yamaha now in retrospect


Mando Pandango

Tec do you have a teacher? Any kind of a learning plan?
