Have you ever wondered what kind of Digital Piano is the right one for you? Well, it all depends on what you need. When choosing a digital piano, you have three options: the grand piano, upright piano, and portable piano. Let’s take a look at a few tips on how to pick the right digital piano for you:
1. The Number of Keys
The number of keys determines what you will be limited to when playing your piano. Many digital pianos come with 61 keys or less. However, a full-sized piano comes with 88 keys and is the best option for most buyers. If you’re a beginner, choosing a full-sized piano will allow you to become a skilled piano player.
2. How The Keys Feel
The way a piano feels affects the way you will play it. You can purchase a digital piano with different kinds of keys: no added weight, semi-weighted keys, and fully-weighted keys. Since acoustic pianos have weighted keys, having a digital piano with fully-weighted keys seems to be the best option if you want to buy an acoustic piano eventually since it closely resembles a natural piano.
The touch-sensitivity is also something to look for when buying a digital piano. Touch-sensitivity refers to how responsive and sensitive a piano is when playing a key. The different amounts of strength and speed you use when playing on the keys will determine how responsive the piano is with its sound. If the piano gives you control over dynamics, you will be able to play more freely.
3. The Sound
When choosing a digital piano, you want to make sure the sound is exactly what you need. The digital piano produces sound from pre-recorded sounds from acoustic pianos. Make sure to play around with different options and look for a piano that mimics an acoustic piano with a warm tone.
Something else to look for is the start and the end of the sound when pressing on a key. The more decay and control the sound has, the more it will sound like an acoustic piano.
4. Sound Features
Having a digital piano is hugely beneficial because of the different sounds it can produce. You can choose from almost any instrument, a choir, and stringed instruments. Although sound features are not essential, purchasing a digital piano with different sound options will allow you to be creative and explore different sounds in your music taste.
