Hello all,

I am thinking of getting a electronic keyboard for someone this Christmas.
As I am not a musician myself, my knowledge of such devices equals my knowledge of ballet dancing.
From what I saw Roland and Yamaha seem to be the best marques, but are there any worthwhile alternatives ?

Rhaa : typo.

Does the person plays the piano, or keyboard (synthe, organ).
If the person in question wants to play the piano, then (s)he definitely will need an electronic piano, and certainly not a synthe.

Yamaha/Clavinova sells very good electronic pianos for 1100 euro (one of my coworkers bought one, I tried it, it *is* good).
Alternatively, you can cut 300 euro from that price if you buy just the keyboard and not the wooden mount.

Hope this helps,

Cheers,

Another solution could be to buy a keyboard "only", that is, akeyboard with 88 weighted keys making piano players happy...and then a sound device, usually a MIDI-machine, that delivers the sounds..there's virtually thousands of devices to make it sound like any sound or noise you can imagine.

Very versatile solution, good quality...now if you have an amount of sub-1000 Euro in mind then forget it.



I know it's only VfB but I like it!

I am actually considering Andreas solution for me : plug an organ device to my Yamaha synthe to get real organ sounds.

However, a full solution like that *is* expensive. You really should go to the full electronic keyboard instead.

Indeed. That is why I strongly advice the 800euro epiano without the wooden mount. That way, you can store it aside when not using it.
