It’s not uncommon for people to get frustrated when trying to find their perfect keyboard. There are so many different types of keyboards that it can be hard to know which one is right for you.
In this blog post, we will give you some tips on how to find your perfect keyboard and what makes a good keyboard in general!
I recommend spending at least $1,000 to purchase an excellent sounding and feeling keyboard that will not only make all the practise worthwhile, but also provide many hours of enjoyment playing alone or with friends.
2. Number of keys
Keyboards are available with 61, 76 or 88 keys. I recommend you buy the 88-key keyboard directly, because it’s a complete set and allows you to play any song on it – and without having to change instruments!
There are so many keyboards on the market, but I recommend four brands.
Yamaha is a proven company that has been around forever; they make quality products that sound great too! You also can not go wrong with Korg or Roland – these two names are true professionals when it comes to making really good looking gear (and music too!). If you are looking for something a little different, then Casio might be just what you are looking for, as not only is Casio affordable, but they also offer a great range of instruments for recreational use.
So if you are thinking of buying a digital piano or keyboard, we hope this article has been able to answer some of your questions.
We also want to hear from you – let us know in the comments below what type of instrument and what features are important to you when buying. Is there anything else we missed? If so, please leave it in the comments section and we will do our best to get you an answer as soon as possible!
Today I just bought myself a second hand Nord Piano 3, of course to learn to play the piano. I am going to take lessons as well. Really good quality digital piano’s and synthezisers. Highly recommendable. Professional. Find out yourself on the web. Kind regards, Marcel from the Netherlands.
I don’t have the budget to spend $1000 on a keyboard, but I got a pretty nice Yamaha P-125 and stand for $600. It has 88 keys weighted to feel like an acoustic piano, and it doesn’t sound too electronic for me. The one advantage (for me) of a keyboard over an acoustic piano is I don’t have to find someone to tune it. I live on the edge of nowhere, and there probably isn’t a piano tuner within 100 miles of here.
There’s a great youtube video of Valentina Lisitsa playing on a Yamaha P-105 whilst in quarantine so you’re in good company. The video is called “Beethoven in Quarantine”

I just want to share with you that I have a KAWAI ES920 and I am very happy with it. Excellent quality for a portable digital piano. I miss Kawai along with the other brands you mentioned.
Thanks Jazer for so amazing content on your website and youtube. It really helps to beginners like me. Greetings from Spain.

Hey there just wanted to give you a quick heads up.
The text in your article seem to be running off the screen in Safari.
I’m not sure if this is a format issue or something to do with internet
browser compatibility but I figured I’d post to let you know.
The design and style look great though! Hope you get the problem
solved soon. Cheers
