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!
