Professional ;p;p;p

If you deem that awful jingle /singing on their TV ad as professional,
This then will also be professional.

I think that's maybe where they get that idea from anyway...

Surely this would be good enough for a young child as a starting point. Then if they want to progress buy a more expensive keyboard. Have voted hot for this reason.

Hot for me, my 6 year old loves playing on his sisters "real" one, so this should keep the piece nicely.

No need to buy another keyboard with this professional one, it will see them from their first hit, through the drug phase, and finally to the reunion tour.

I haven't seen it, is it as bad as Smyths?

bought it last year it's alright for my 6 year old a bit wobbly on the stand but he's happy and that what matters but the demo music get very annoying

I bought one yesterday. I was 'delighted' that it comes with a microphone too.

I have earplugs ready for Xmas day.

It's still in stock at the MK store (near Oldbrook).

Quick somebody tell Alan Partridge.

Never seen this in B&M good find I bet you it just the same as a Yamaha xx

Is this a mechanical keyboard made with cherrys and will make me think I'm better at FPS games?

​Haha

Word "Professional" shouldn't be used here....

Just reminded me of this youtube.com/wat…iD0 X)

Voted hot. But this has been at this price a least the beginning of this year. Good thing comes with a stand. But if buying for children, check with instructor. Some instructors want children to buy Casio and Yamah keyboards with built-in learning lessons which cost upto 5 times more.

Umm.... now if you said Casio, you would be closer (but still way off). Think back to the old Bontempi keyboards if you want to compare. I previously taught keyboards, piano and organ (was semi-pro for 20 years and use a CVP-709) and encountered most you could buy. If you are considering lessons, and can spend a few hundred take a look at the Yamaha DGX models. Also, some of the Thomann range (German but great customer service and free delivery normally in around 5 days. They have just replaced the older models (eg SP-5600 £300) and now have for the price good sounding styles and excellent piano voices and more importantly, a nice responsive fully weighted keyboard whose action easily equal Yamaha) gives you a lot for the price paid. Really depends on what you are looking for or want. If this is for a 5 or 6 year old to mess around with you should be ok.

Sound advice.

Actually quite true, the little Yamaha keyboards sold in retail shops are miles away from their professional music keyboards. All of these cheap consumer keyboards will use a basic electronic keyboard chipset with a bank of samples and very basic circuitry. The bulk of the cost is in producing the plastic keys.
