I've had a Roland electric for years and the ability to use headphones with it has always been a huge deal to me. Now that my kids have started to learn it's even more valuable...

If you mean Middle C, then quite obviously

If you're a beginner, I'd recommend looking to get something a lot cheaper. It might save you some money if you find it's not for you.
This looks like a mad price. I got a Roland FP-30 with stand, pedal board and bag for 650 and that was a year ago and a price match. Admittedly it's supposed to be a better piano, but I doubt it's £150 better.

Lucky you! Then yes, you'd be set with this
Not that this isn't a good deal, because it is, but having picked up a second hand, new condition AP-245 (it's the same piano) a few years back for £250, it's worth looking for a used piano locally first. A lot of people confuse "buying a piano so I can play it" and "buying a piano and practicing for hours a week over the next few years so I can play it", so there are a lot of unused used piano bargains out there

Not quite sure what you mean there but surely all keyboards feature a (sometimes shiftable) middle C?

Anyway, this is a discontinued and superceded keyboard (new AP270). Casio no longer sells it and has sold off all its remaining stock to Costco. However, that does mean that with a little shopping around there should be some good deals out there if you are happy with this older model.

A few things to note (no pun intended) though.

The key action may be a matter of personal preference but the key texture on the AP260 has often been criticised.

Also, the sustain pedal isn't brilliant.

More importantly, it has 128-note polyphony which can potentially lead to problems when layering.

Newer models also allow you to change settings using Casio's Android and iOS apps rather than having to delve into the control panel on this model which can be a bit of a pain and isn't always overly intuitive.

Another consideration is the sound quality as this doesn't have an audio output (other than headphone jacks). The onboard stereo speakers only have 16 watts which may be ok at home but you will struggle elsewhere.

Finally, and probably crucially, this obsolete model only comes with a 1 year warranty - when digital keyboards go wrong they go seriously and expensively wrong!

However, if you are a novice or casual player looking for an entry level keyboard then this is a good spot.

Heat.

Excellent question. I think the cheapest for a new yamaha is about £2600?

Facebook Marketplace and eBay are full of very cheap used acoustics, but if you don't know what you're doing you could easily spend time and money getting it moved and tuned to realise why it was so cheap.

Oh it is. I have an FP-30 myself and that thing is a bargain in itself. Wonderful piano.

To be honest I can’t remember as it was a few years ago, I bought it for a wedding present to my wife. I shopped around for quite a while then came across that place, nipped in and he did me a great deal.
He gave me a warranty free tuning and stool!

About £50ish. If you're getting one of them cheap/free Gumtree pianos, I recommend you read the buying guide below, it's really helpful.

If they're cheap, there's nearly always a reason why. Pianos, including uprights, are incredibly heavy and will require specialists to move unless you want to damage it even more. On top of that, a lot of the cheap ones need restringing, which is gonna cost somewhere in the thousands.

Thank you for the info
Wow this piano looks very similar to the one I bought my son. The Yamaha YDP-163 which cost us close to double this. Although I'm sure there is a reason for this. I believe the 163 had more powerful speakers and weighted keys so maybe this is actually a 143 that Yamaha made but has been rebadged by casio
Just bought a Kawai ES 110, worth looking at as well.

Can you share a link for that? I hope it comes with cover for accidentals!
I have the previous AP-245 model and can certainly recommend this piano. Nice weighted keys, sounds real good and you can set the volume to a level the neighbours can stand.

I doubt this would be for you if you’re a concert pianist but then you would probably want to pay more than £500. For the average player it’s great.

They did a special £499.99 deal when I got mine 5 years ago and that was a good price then! Even better if you can get it for the same now.
if these are weighted keys this is a bargain

Good to hear. I don't have a lot of experience with electric pianos and was a bit surprised how good it was. It was an impulse and I didn't really try any others so I assumed they were all in that ballpark, even though it has better reviews than the Casio.

Who told you that? I've never heard of a piano without middle C or heard anyone call it "central C". I don't think even the Americans use anything other than middle C among their weird lingo of "measures" and whatnot.

Mark my words that Brexiteer shopkeepers/greengrocers etc will start using imperial measures after we've left the EU. I'm not commenting on whether Brexit will be a good or bad thing, but increased use of imperial measures will be a total pain in the ar*e.


And who the bejeesus are "Dr K" and "Terry"?
I am contemplating purchasing this model but after looking at the AP270 and app connectivity, I am seriously confused as what I will be losing. Does the app really provide extra value? Is it worth considering over this model? I realize their is a USB connection on this model but don’t know what the exactly means.

Full disclosure: I know nothing about pianos and want to get this for my kids. So any info/advise would be appreciated.

Depends which tune....waltzing Matilda is normally £3 but the Entertainer about £5...depends on the tune really.
