Author Topic: recomend me an electronic keyboard  (Read 246 times)

my old one has been broken for over a year now and i want to get back into it. i don't really know which are good so right now i'm looking at random 88 key casios and casiotones. want 88 keys but still want something compact. if anyone here even knows anything about these things

Razor or Corsair.
My razor has lasted me around 3 years and the keys still feel new. I love it.
I however have a Friend that swears by Corsair.
Its up to you.

How am I seeing this now.

Anyway its not hard. Alot of keyboards have midi support if thats what your wanting.
You really dont have to be picky unless youre a sound national socialist. I have a 12 year old eletric yamaha piano that sounds great imo though it isnt top of the line.
midi support and theres really not much I cant do with it.
Rumor has it even the great jack stauber bought his keyboard second hand. Just go for it.

I use this, 2 of the buttons are broken, it's too small for my hands and you can only use 2 keys at once

check your local craigslist/offerup/fb marketplace. see what's being sold. look up the keyboards from those listings, see which ones stand out. compare prices used vs new. figure out which is good enough for what you want for the best possible price. (bonus points if you can haggle the price even lower)

this isn't really specific to keyboards, just a good way to buy anything used.

personally, i'm a whore for yamahas. i've been looking into getting the yamaha DGX-670 to replace my old DGX-530. weighted keys, midi capable, supports usb audio, has an lcd screen. also has a pretty broad selection of reverb/echo/etc customizations. there's also the DGX-660 which is the more budget-friendly version of the 670. the big problem tho is they're kinda big boys

the casio privia seems to get solid reviews and is a lot more compact, but it doesn't have all the features and the big soundbank like the yamahas do. but if you only want a solid piano experience, it's probably a solid option for you (and looks to be more affordable than the yamahas: those run for about $800 to $900 and the casio can be had for $579 on amazon)

this is also solid advice. also check your local music stores. a lot of them have good condition used keyboards for solid prices and you'd be able to test them in person usually

Every time I see the name Yamaha I think of this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fXbGDHYfbgA&t=112s
