i would be interested too my son started to learn having got a £40 keyboard last which sounds fine to me but he says it does not "hold the note" when pressed so we are looking for something else

My son uses a Yamaha dgx-205 & it sounds wonderful - its not the full keyboard though but near enough for learners. You can put a pedal on to sustain & the keys are slightly weighted. I think you have to pay a lot more to get properly weighted keys.

My daughter already plays saxophone and wanted to learn the piano, her band leader recommended the yamaha np30, it has full size keyboard and weighted keys.I got mine from rocking rooster .May have refurbs back on after christmas.

I got a refurbished model, power supply,double braced stand and delivery for £210 and it was still sealed in the box.Now bought a sustain pedal.

Thanks but I don't think the np30 has weighted keys? I had the dgx-205 but I want a weighted keys one. I know they're a bit more expensive but I want a more realistic touch piano

Hi,

As a pianist, I'd suggest a Yamaha Clavinova - they don't make them as such anymore but you should be able to pick one up on ebay pretty cheap.

I moved to one of these when I moved out of home and couldn't fit a full sized proper piano in my pad... plus this never needs tuning which is a bonus!

Thanks Pink, but isn't that a really old piano? I can't find any on ebay... I don't mind spending up to 500ish just want something that isn't too big, that I can transport when I move (going to be a dirty student again soon), that will last me a good couple of years and that is as close to a real piano as possible.

Argos have a range of digital pianos with weighted keys and full keybooard size. They might be around £600, i'm looking as my daughter is learning, currently using a keyboard, but suprising how quickly they progress!!

The first time I played on one of these was at a Yamaha Electone competition when I was about 8 years old, whilst I had a proper baby grand at home, this was the closest in terms of weighted keys I came across and has the full size 88 keys.

It's just preference really, but like classic wood piano's... age doesn't matter.

Personally, I'd avoid cheap ones. If you're happy spending about £500 or so, you'll definately get a decent one on ebay. The original clavinova's didn't have that much electronics/effects but Yamaha have enhanced them quite a bit since...

thanks pink_koo. I had a look at the argos range but most of them are over priced. I ended up going with this one:

http://www.normans.co.uk/p-2504-yamaha-ydp161-digital-piano-free-bench-headphones.aspx

which is almost identical to the clavinova entry range. It has graded hammer which I think is one better than graded hammer standard and comes with free bench and headphones.
