Very good price. I paid well over 400 for the older 105 model

Would this be a good Digital Piano for a beginner to learn on, or would I be better off buying something cheaper.

This is an advanced keyboard with more black keys than a beginner could possibly navigate.

No, seriously, what kind of a daft question is that?

Not everyone is quite as knowledgeable as you Mr Lloyd Webber.

It's responses like this that stop people making comments.
It's a simple query about the keyboard.
A simple yes or no would have sufficed!!

Depends on what you're buying it for. If you just want a keyboard to mess around with you might as well go for cheap. If, on the other hand, you're wanting to learn to play piano, it's generally worth paying more. The cheap keyboards often have lightweight keys with poor touch sensitivity compared to a 'real' piano. With electric pianos the more expensive ones have a more realistic feel in how the keys work.

It's something I'd prefer to try out in a shop before buying. But then I'm not a beginner so it's something that would annoy me more if it wasn't up to scratch.

So TheGreatMogul's question is a good one.

I think his little organ is overshadowed by this big piano.

I'm a pianist at the highest level (playing Rachmaninov, Liszt, Ravel, Chopin, etc) and this keyboard has been a revelation- what a time to be alive!
I've owned several Yamaha Clavinovas over the years, and it's only been in very recent years that the technology has improved to the point where the sound has become much more life-like and enjoyable to play.
At this price, it's an absolute no brainer, this keyboard will suit anybody from a beginner who wants to get used to the feel of a real piano all the way to whatever you want to play on it- with the exception that very rapidly repeated notes might be a problem but this would only be a problem with

(oops, bloody app submitted before I was ready!)

a niche piece such as the transcription of Recuerdos de la Alhambra.

Be aware you'll need to buy a good stool (proper playing height is very important) and a stand (and possibly the music stand for the sheet music, the description is unclear on this).

One more caveat- I bought mine second hand in mint condition and have been hammering my keyboard with a ton of practice with Chopin Etudes and physically demanding repertoire and can feel the keys already losing their responsiveness after a year- but this is a problem with any piano keyboard- I've had to get Clavinovas serviced in the past for similar reasons. Normal playing should BC absolutely fine as long as you use a cover to stop dust getting into the key mechanisms.

ps, how amazing it is to be able to tuck this keyboard under one arm & easily carry it up & down stairs- previous Clavinovas were the weight of a small elephant!

For those considering this and needing advice, this piano will suffice only to grade 3. After that, an upgrade will be required to a piano capable of articulating a wider range of dynamics/expression. You will also need to factor in the price of a stand, pedals ans stool. If you're serious about it then it may be better to spend a bit more to get one that won't need upgrading. These start around £600-£700 and Roland pianos tend to be superior to Yamaha.

Thanks Chocolate TV. Any chance you can say which Roland piano would be good??

Picked this up at around the same price last Xmas. Great piano and great price. Would recommend getting the official stand and pedals although these are not required. Heat added.

Absolute bargain. Great share op. Heat.

I could not disgree more.
A friend of mine (very good pianist) wanted to spend up to £2,000 on a digital piano, like the money was burning a hole in his pocket.
I already had one of these so recommended it- he didn't believe me, so after trying out dozens of more expensive models in various music and piano stores, this was the one he bought.
I took my grade 8 when I was around 10 years old (now 45), studied up to master's degree in classical piano and this keyboard handles pretty much anything I throw at it. It handles an extremely wide range of dynamics/expression, that's why it's such a delight to play. That it's so portable is an added bonus.
Have you actually played this keyboard?!

My Kawai is definitely in the small elephant weight band!

Interesting to hear that the quality of the keyboard is so high. Although I don't need any more pianos so I won't be biting on this deal :D

You didn't take your grade 8 on this piano, though, did you. If you had, you would've failed. It doesn't have enough different velocities per note. Go ask any pano teacher or, more importantly, exam board. Glad you're happy with yours; more dynamics are needed than the piano can produce for the higher grade exams. Fact.

Roland FP50, RP401, F140. All have the same keyboard which is the most important part. The latter two have stands here you'll need to buy one for the FP50. Likewise with pedals. So sometimes it's as easy to buy the ones with integrated stands and pedals as they work out a similar price once you've added everything on.

For info, one of the key selling points of the Rolands is their 'Supernatural' technology which has far surpassed Yamaha's (who invented the digital piano). Also bear in mind that, on Yamaha's, the notes they play are, like all digital pianos, samples from 'real' pianos recorded in a studio. Except Yamaha sample one note per octave (every 12 notes) and then pitch shift the sample for the other notes (which reduces quality). Roland sample every single note. Hope that helps.

I also have a grade 8 in piano. I own a Roland RD700NX and a Kawai VPC-1. I wouldn't want to have done my grade 8 exam on any of them!

Whilst it's nice to have a piano that sounds like a piano (most of them do a reasonable job) if you already play and you're serious about playing, you need to get something with the action / feel that seems right for you, which is why if you're spending any serious amount of money it's worth trying them out first.

I don't think anyone would buy an acoustic instrument without trying it first, and as there's a mechanical aspect to digital pianos I'd suggest the same here too.

I worked my way around Forsyths in Manchester (this was 14 years ago) but there are other places where you can do this.

And whilst we're at the 'I've done my Grade 8 willy waving club' - I'm with xeroc in that I'd be doing the exam on an acoustic instrument in preference too.

Couldn't agree more. I bought my Roland f100 about 12 years ago now and it was based purely on my personal preference having tried many many others and the feedback and weight of the keys was right for me. That said this is a good price for a mid range but I wouldn't be buying any piano, acoustic or digital without having tried them first. Yamaha acoustic grand was amazing but totally out of my budget (and you need a mansion to put it in!)
