Which electric keyboard is best?

Discuss the digital alternatives to the acoustic piano

Postby be-sharp » Fri Sep 24, 2004 4:25 pm

I sold my semi-concert grand a few years back but now I want to start playing again. I am looking at getting an electric keyboard with authentic feeling weighted keys. I also need a place to plug in headphones so I don't disturb anyone at night when inspiration seems to always hit.
I don't want a cheezy sounding keyboard and I must have 88 keys. Sometimes I would like to add string sounds.
What is the best model for my needs? :)

I prefer Technics instruments. They cost a bit more, but I feel they are the closest thing to accoustic that you can get in a digital these days.

They have one model (I'm sorry, I don't remember what number it is... PC53 or something like that) that has 88 weighted keys, can transpose, has at least one headphone jack and has a handful of sounds (piano, organ, strings, harpsichord, and one or two more, I think) and two pedals. It goes for around $2300 Canadian.

If you can swing that, it's definitely worth it.

I'm not familiar with Technics keyboards but have had good service from several of their tape decks.

From my own experience, the Yamaha Clavinova is hard to beat. Check out the Yamaha web site.

I own the Yamaha P-80 and am very pleased.
