What To Look
For When Buying A New Or Used Electronic Keyboard
Kids An Electronic Piano Keyboard
If you are a beginner or you are going to get a keyboard for your
children, then you don’t need to spend a a lot of money to
pick up a first-rate quality, seriously featured electronic piano
keyboard. For a used beginner's music keyboard, anything up to fifty
pounds will do and if you wish for a new midi keyboard then one hundred
pounds will do it.
Features Your Keyboard Should Have
These days musical keyboards at a price range of up to a hundred pounds
have lots of functions and if you are in the market for a new keyboard,
you will almost certainly get what you require as a beginner. If on the
other hand you are buying a second-hand keyboard then you should check
out some useful features your keyboard should have. I have listed a
some of these features below and they can make the learning process a
little bit easier.
Using a velocity sensitive keyboard means you can add a bit of light
and shade to your playing. By adjusting the force you apply to the keys
will control whether the sound is loud or soft. Press down hard and the
sound is loud, press delicately and the sound is soft.
Again, most contemporary piano keyboards today possess full size piano
keys. Some older electronic piano keyboards may have half size keys.
These were introduced to aid young children with smaller fingers to
play the musical keyboard more effectively. This of course is more
marketing than fact and having half size or mini keys offer no useful
assistance to learning whatsoever and I recommend you avoid these types
of keyboards if you are serious about learning to play.
If you purchase a secondhand portable keyboard, you might be lucky and
get a keyboard stand with it. When buying a new keyboard, stands are
classed as an optional extra. Still, it's worth the additional expence
to get one and if you have youngsters of various ages and sizes, the
fact that it's adjustable comes in very handy.
Online Piano Lessons For Beginners
Of course, there are lots and lots of features available on new digital
keyboards, some you will find useful some you probably will never use.
The great thing is that portable keyboards in the hundred-pound range
are specifically designed for the novice and if you take some private
or online piano keyboard lessons, you will get a good start.
Second Hand Casio Electronic Keyboards
If you want to buy an electronic keyboard for yourself, how do you
decide which brand to choose. You need to consider the price
of the keyboard, obviously its got to suit your budget and you also
want a good make, not a toy and its got to be easy to use, so you don't
want a workstation keyboard or a synthesizer.
The ideal solution, especially if you are a beginner is to opt for a
used Casio Keyboard. You can easily pick one up for less than a hundred
pounds; they are a respected brand and are very easy to use.
61 And 76
Note Casio Keyboards
You should be looking for a minimum of 61 keys on the Casio keyboard of
your choice; in fact some of the older WK Casio's have a 76 key
keyboard. All Casio's have a generous amount of sound presets including
Piano, Brass, Organ and String sounds. They also come with over a
hundred Drum Styles and an automatic chord recognition computer built
Amazon is probably the best place to buy Casio keyboards, there are lots
of listing and lots of bargains. Just set your budget, make sure you
get a power supply and a stand with the deal and you're all set to go.
