DIGITAL PIANO BRAND CHALLENGE – Can you match clip & brand?

Listen to the audio in this you tube video- Which digital Piano should I buy?

So- you think you might know which digital piano brand you are looking to buy? It’s fair to say that there are many different parameters by which we can assess a digital piano. Here is a little exercise to illustrate just the one parameter: the tone of the default piano sound. Each of the audio clips in the video is a recording of one of the four digital piano brands I sell. The recordings were made directly as a line capture with near enough the same passage of notes.

A good pair of headphones or monitor speakers is more ideal to hear some of the nuances in the recordings.

Even if you can decide which you like best, there are many reasons why you should visit the store and discuss further the possibilities- each digital piano has it’s own speaker system, keyboard quality and other functions. Having illustrated and intrigued you all with this conundrum – perhaps you need to assess the options in person, rather than relying on digital piano reviews.

The quiz just shows how vast the variety of options there are of digital pianos- I can help you decide!

New digital piano- full of inovations- bursting with music!

There are many good reasons to add a digital piano to your equipment. You may be looking for a practice instrument, a portable accompanying piano for a band or choir, a space saving rehearsal instrument, or perhaps you may not yet have imagined that there are many other elements and options available.

Among the facilities now on modern digital instruments there are many tones , or voices , but now also complex rhythms with accompaniments are often part of the specification.

Recording, or using an ipad with various apps for learning and playing along to are also great for beginners and accomplished players alike.

Investing in a modern piano would open possibilities of realism of tone and feel to start with, but beyond that- there is real value in the learning aids and the chance to learn the skills needed to play with a band, in time!

There are pianos to suit all budgets and age ranges! It may be time to revive a skill you have not used for a while!  Pay the shop a visit and see the options.
