WEIGHTED KEY ACTION: Anyone interested in playing a digital piano that feels like an acoustic piano - and most people should be - will want to get a digital piano that uses weighted keys and responds well to how hard or soft you strike the key. The Casio CDP-120 and the Yamaha P35 are currently the least expensive digital pianos that provide a reasonably realistic feel.
Note that you won't find a 76-key or 61-key keyboard with an effective weighted action, so you'll have to buy an 88-key piano. Even if you think that's more than you need or can fit in your space, it's worth finding a way.
ENOUGH TONES: While the CDP-120 has a limited range of instrument tones (5), that won't matter much. Most people will use just the primary grand piano tone. In addition, there is always the option to connect out through the USB port to use a computer to achieve any tone you'd like to use.
LOOKING GOOD: In addition, the Casio CDP-120 is attractively designed - sleek and simple, not a lot of switches and displays on the top. The controls are simple and clear.
A few people have commented that they are not impressed with the built-in speakers. Attaching an external amp/speaker is relatively easy and not expensive, so that's always an option if you wish.Read more ›
***HERE'S WHAT I ORIGINALLY WROTE IN NOVEMBER 2012
I was looking for a digital piano that allowed me to have all the same feel and sound of an acoustic piano, but allows me to use headphones at times when there are kids studying. We have an acoustic piano, so I didn't feel like spending a lot on this. After my initial research, I decided to get Williams Allegro. While probably suitable for a beginner, I found it was not quite as close to a real piano as what I needed. So after some more research, watching many YouTube videos, and reading digital piano blogs (yes, they exist), I confidently stepped up the the plate and spent a hundred bucks more on a Casio CDP-120, in spite of Casio's image as manufacturer of novelty keyboards that are more like toys, I am happy to report that this is a serious high-level instrument for serious pianists. Here are highlights:
1) Sounds like a real piano.
2) Solid, but not too heavy (about 35 pounds or so)
3) Perfect action. I can play a range of dynamics and this captures all the nuance that you'd need, unless you're Lang Lang, Chick Corea, Chihiro yamanaka, Hiromi or David Benoit.
No Complaints whatsoever. Even though Amazon does not sell this item directly, I was able to buy this online from a company called Woodwind & Brasswind which not only matched MusicianFriend's price, they also shipped it via Priority UPS for free. They did a fantastic job.Read more ›
keybed costing twice as much or more: really! Good solid weight and feel. The only thing
holding me back was the limited sounds - 5 -. I wanted more sounds. In spite of that
I would have bought this if not for a used yamaha 640 - for a buck and a half more.
This keyboard felt as good as any keyboard in the showroom (ok I didn't play the over $1500.00 models).
Sounds: only five sounds; 2 acoustic piano sounds, clavicord, elec piano, and synth.
The piano's sounds seemed pretty good; I wasn't crazy about the synth sound - i wantied more of a pad to
add to the piano. You can layer 2 sounds at once; just press both button together.
This wasn't too heavy and might do for something portable - if you don't need any fancy sounds.
I think this is a good buy if you just want a sold practice keybed.
BUT listen to the sounds yourself to see if they sound good to you - your millage may vary.
I am delighted. Not only is it light enough to stand on end in the corner when not in use, it sounds great and, although the action is a trifle heavier than I'm used to it still has nice enough responsiveness. It has five sounds, reverb and chorus and a USB connection on the back which I am told will allow me to use other voices as a MIDI-type controller with Propellerhead Reason 4.0 Recording Software, although I am so pleased with the stock Grand Piano sound that I haven't bothered. I suspect I will care about this when I start to re-learn Toccata and Fugue in D, since there is no church organ sound.
I do love to freak out the stepchildren. The only thing creepier than a mad stepfather playing Bach is one playing "In the Hall of the Mountain King", but they probably don't get the movie reference yet.
