how to buy a piano keyboard for beginners india top best 10 pianos

There are some factors which you should consider while purchasing your first piano keyboard!

  1. Number of Keys in Piano: Number of keys in a piano plays a great role when you think about portability. It means it will be very easy to take the piano from one place to another if it has less keys. But if you want to set up a full professional studio at single place then you can purchase a piano which is of full size.

  2. Price of Piano: Price of piano is very important because everybody has his own budget. So if you are a beginner and you want to learn piano, then I think you can purchase a cheap piano that will cost you up to around 5000 rupees. But if you know all the basics of piano and want to enhance your knowledge and skills then you can purchase an expensive piano which will be having more features and versatility.

  3. Power Options: There are normally three types of power inputs for a piano. One is from Pencil batteries, second from direct electricity and third from any USB cable. So if you want to play your piano outdoor where there is no electricity then you can purchase a piano which will be running on batteries.

  4. Output Options: Output connections also matter when it comes to performance and recording. The piano may have 3.5 or 6.3 mm jack for output. If you want to connect your digital Piano keyboard in your software then you have to purchase a piano which will send the MIDI signals with a USB cable to the computer.

  5. Learning Software: Many professional pianos like Yamaha have their own music learning software in the piano. So if you do not have a physical teacher who can teach you piano, then you can purchase a keyboard which has its own music learning software, so that you can learn how to play piano by yourself.
  6. Brand: If you want to buy piano online then you might also be thinking about what are the brands of piano. There are many famous companies which make piano just like Yamaha and Casio. But, as a fully beginner, you can purchase a piano which fits in your budget rather than choosing a company.

    Used from: Out of Stock

  7. Customer Support and Warranty: Almost every digital keyboard piano making company provides its customer support. So you have also to look that does that particular piano company has its customer center in your town. So that in case if you face any problem, you can take your piano to the customer center and they can help you.
  8. Velocity Sensitive: Piano sensitiveness is very important for the professional piano players or if you want to record your digital keyboard into your software. Velocity sensitive means that the harder you press the keys of piano, the louder it sounds. If You Hit the keys softly then the sound volume will be less. So it is very good to give some variations to your music. For example playing live in any orchestra or bands for changing the moods of song.

  9. Pitch Shift and Modulation Wheel: Pitch shift is very important for giving realistic effects to some of the internal instrument sounds of piano. For example if you want to slide the guitar’s sound in Piano, as the real guitar then you have to use Pitch Shift Wheel. Similarly modulation wheel gives the vibration for modulation to the sound which is generating from the keyboard. So both are good for synthesizing the real sound of any instrument.

  10. Key Width:  Key size is important for beginners as well as professional keyboard player. For deciding what kind of keys you want in a piano, you need to consider some factors. First is that, how much will you travel. If you travels a lot then definitely a big size piano will be a little bit problem for you. So you can purchase a piano which has mini keys. But if you are static then you can purchase a full size piano. Again if you are a beginner piano player then you can purchase a keyboard which has mini keys. But if you are a professional piano player then you can purchase a piano which has full size keys.

  11. Polyphony: Polyphony means how many keys on the piano can make the sound together. This is very important if you play from both the hands. This is also very important for professional piano player so that you can play all the extended chords and leads together without cutting any sound.
  12. Sound Libraries: If your piano does not support midi interface, then you have to purchase a piano which has a lot of internal sounds. Because a piano supporting midi interface can make a lot of sounds from the computer software VST Libraries also. But if your Piano keyboard does not connect to computer then all you have to use is the internal sounds of the piano. So you have to look for what kind of sounds does a piano have and it should have quality sounds. 
  13. Midi Support for Computer: Midi support means the way your piano connect to the computer with a USB cable or another type of cable via the audio interface. The benefit of midi support is that you can record your piano directly in your software without wasting any time with the mouse clicks. Every professional Studio has midi keyboards for recording their sounds in the audio editing software.

  14. Keypad Lights: Keypad light is a kind of fancy thing because it does not affect the playing skill of a professional piano player too much. But for a beginner player it can be helpful. This kind of lights get lit when someone strikes keys on the digital keyboard.
  15. Sustain Pedal: Sustain pedal is also important thing which a professional piano players should look in a keyboard. This is used to sustain the notes being played on the keyboard. But I think for beginners keyboard players it will be okay to use a piano without sustain pedal.

  • Sound Technology

  • Unprecedented Natural Reproduction of the Rich Expressive Power and Resonance of an Acoustic Piano

  • Multi-dimensional Morphing AiR Sound Source

  • The characteristics of CASIO’s newly developed Multi-dimensional Morphing Acoustic and Intelligent Resonator Sound Source reflect thorough attention to detail in expressing the rich, resonating tones inherent to the piano. The capacity of the installed memory has been expanded to achieve a longer sampling duration and enhanced waveform data quality. The temporal changes in tone that create sound you would expect only from a piano, beginning with the initial sound and leading into a beautiful extension until the sound eventually vanishes, are reproduced naturally.

  • Keyboard System

  • Natural Playing Feel Approaching That of a Grand Piano Firm Touch That Converts the Player’s Thoughts into Sound

  • Tri-sensor Scaled Hammer Action Keyboard II, with a grand piano’s unique sounding timing

  • The difference between the sound structures of a grand piano and a digital piano appears as a difference in timing, from the moment the instrument is played until the sound is audible. The new Tri-sensor Scaled Hammer Action Keyboard II responds by incorporating a system with three sensors that detect touches of the keys sequentially.

  • Simulated ebony and ivory keys with optimal fingertip fit for playing ease

  • The Simulated ebony and ivory keys offers the luxurious feel and texture as well as the smooth touch of a grand piano keyboard. The minutely detailed crimp surface finish inhibits finger slippage due to sweat and gives the sensation of a perfect fingertip fit, even when playing for extended periods.

  • Damper Resonance achieving a more naturally beautiful resonance than a pedal

  • The deep, beautiful resonance resulting from the use of a damper pedal is also reproduced naturally by a stereo resonance simulator installed on all 88 keys, an approach that differs from conventional simulated reproduction employing effect processing. The attention to detail goes so far as to simulate the resonance created by the lifting of the dampers themselves when the pedal is pressed. A continuously variable system has been adopted for the damper pedal, moreover, reproducing even the subtle changes in reverberation that occur in response to the delicate pressure exerted by partial pedal operation. This enables players to employ pedal operation to achieve gracefully expressive performances.
