Digital Piano (Advice needed)

Found 18th Apr 2010
Looking at getting a digital piano for the wife, but we both don't know a lot about them, she wants one with three pedals and weighted keys.

Is this any good?

Having played with just about all of them over the years, save up and get a yamaha clavinova, or a casio celviano digital piano

nothing else is the same, i prefer the feel of the casio ones (just) over the yamaha.
the base models of the celviano used go for around 4-500 or a new one get bet got for 675

features you want to check or ask about are: transpose, and 3 pedals instead of the 2

features you dont need, rhythyms or loads of sounds

(the basic ones have at least 8, including a couple of piano sounds, electric pianos, couple or organs and a metronome anyway)

Bad english on the item description. Also says 'if you receive the guitar'

I would concur with above. I have the Yamaha YDP131R, which was the entry-level clavinova a few years back. It's been discontinued and replaced by the YDP140. You can find it here:

You can't go wrong for this price. Although, if you can afford an extra £300 (i.e. £1000) then the more upmarket models have more features, a display and better speakers. However, the action and sound on this model is very, very good.

Transpose?



you play in one key, say C
and it shifts the tones up or down, so it sounds like you are playing in say, G

Ahh thanks, given this a little bump for now.
