Tips On Buying Digital Pianos

Chef.If you are going to by a digital (electric) piano, here are some points to keep in mind.

  1. The keyboard does not have to be full piano length, that is 7 to 8 octaves, but should have at least 5 octaves. In other words, choose a keyboard that has at least 64 keys or more.
  2. It is important that the actual keys on the keyboard are piano size.  
  3. I recommend that the keys are both touch sensitive and weighted.

Weighted Keys

A digital piano keyboard is referred to as having weighted keys when the action of its keys imitate the action of an acoustic piano.

Touch sensitive

A touch sensitive keyboard means that its keys react to how had you press them. If you pressed them down softly you will get a quiet sound, if you press them down hard the sound is louder. To play your music with expression and feeling you will need this function.

Conclusion Can't write anything.

Digital pianos with the size and functionality described above are a little bit more expensive that ordinary digital pianos, however the playing experience is much more enjoyable. The company you buy your piano from will know the terms mentioned above.
