Why choose a Digital Piano?

SPEAK TO US

Digital pianos offer diverse, compact usability that is difficult to find in any acoustic piano (unless it has been fitted with a silent system). We stock a range of digital pianos, including Yamaha digital pianos and Casio digital pianos catering not only for those seeking to increase the number of features and sounds their piano is capable of but also for those who need to occasionally transport their instrument (for say, people moving homes regularly, such as university students).

We are recognised as a Kawai Selection Centre, thanks to the comprehensive range of Kawai digital pianos we have fully set up and ready for you to try. If you would like to access the features a digital piano affords you, whilst still owning an acoustic instrument, then please feel free to enquire about our retrofitted silent system or the Yamaha silent pianos. Or, for pianos capable of playing themselves, see the Disklavier system on offer for Yamaha and grand pianos.

Frequently Asked Questions

DO DIGITAL PIANOS NEED TO BE TUNED?

Digital pianos never need to be tuned, making them ideal for people who are looking for a low-maintenance instrument. As digital pianos use digital samples of acoustic piano sounds, they are also capable of replicating the sound of a grand piano more accurately than an electric piano or digital keyboard.

Electric pianos and keyboards tend to have digital effects or sound-altering capabilities that digital pianos do not have, so if you are looking for an instrument which will provide you with the most authentic grand piano sound, a digital piano is the ideal choice.

ARE DIGITAL PIANOS AS GOOD AS REAL ACOUSTIC PIANOS?

This is a question that we get asked a lot, and the answer is yes and no. It depends on what you are looking for in a piano. If you want an instrument that is capable of replicating the sound of a grand piano more accurately than an electric piano or keyboard, then a digital piano is the ideal choice.

However, if you are looking for an instrument with digital effects or sound-altering capabilities, then an electronic keyboard or digital keyboard may be a better option. Additional benefits of a digital piano include the ability to play silently with headphones, which can be perfect for not disturbing those around you.

The best brand of digital piano for your home will depend on your requirements and what will make life easier for you. We offer a wide range of portable pianos for beginners and experienced players alike. If you're looking for digital pianos for sale, we can help source the ideal one for your needs.

WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN ELECTRIC PIANOS AND DIGITAL PIANOS?

The main difference between an electric piano and a digital piano is that digital pianos never need to be tuned, making them ideal for people who are looking for a low-maintenance instrument.

As digital pianos use digital samples of acoustic piano sounds, they are also capable of replicating the sound of a grand piano more accurately than an electric piano or keyboard. An electronic keyboard will ten to have digital effects or sound-altering capabilities that digital instuments do not have, so if you are looking for an instrument which will provide you with the most authentic grand piano sound, a digital piano is the ideal choice.

The keys are also very different on acoustic pianos, digital pianos and electronic keyboards. Digital and electronic instruments offer weighted keys that mimic the sensation of the hammer action hitting the strings, but there are really sensors working in the background to produce the sounds. While very similar to acoustic pianos, the tones are slightly different. However, many believe that a digital instrument will always be more versatile than an acoustic piano. They are lighter, more portable, and often make better stage pianos.

HOW MUCH SPACE DOES A DIGITAL PIANO TAKE UP?

One of the great benefits of digital pianos is that they are compact and lightweight, making them easy to store and transport. If you are moving home regularly or simply want an instrument that is easy to move, a digital piano is an ideal solution. Moving a real piano can be difficult, and once it has been moved, you will need to wait for it to settle before tuning it again. With digital portable pianos, you can easily move them and start playing right away.

However, if you do not need to move your piano very often and are happy to keep it in the same place, this shouldn't be much of an issue. There are digital pianos available in a variety of sizes, so you should be able to find one that is suitable for your needs.

Some of the main benefits of digital pianos include:

  • They never need to be tuned, making them ideal for people who are looking for a low-maintenance instrument.

Digital pianos offer improved connectivity and the latest technology to help you record, mix and playback your music. Digital pianos offer greater versatility, meaning you can connect directly to a computer or mixing desk using the integrated USB, Bluetooth or MIDI controller to turn your instrument into a full recording studio. These connections are also useful for following along with keyboard lessons.

CAN YOU TELL THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN AN ACOUSTIC PIANO AND A DIGITAL PIANO?

The sound of an acoustic piano and a digital piano is quite different. Acoustic pianos have a fuller, richer sound, while digital pianos tend to be brighter and clearer. Additionally, digital pianos never need to be tuned, making them ideal for people who are looking for a low-maintenance instrument.

As digital pianos use digital samples of authentic piano sounds, in practice they are also capable of replicating the sound of a grand piano more accurately than an electric piano or keyboard. Electric pianos and keyboards tend to have digital effects or sound-altering capabilities that digital pianos do not have, so if you are looking for an instrument which will provide you with the most authentic grand piano sound, a digital piano is the ideal choice.

BUYING ADVICE FOR A GRAND DIGITAL PIANO

A good digital piano can be a considerable investment for your home. With a grand digital piano, this is more than just an instrument, it is also a piece to add to your collection and could even be seen as a piece of furniture. Unlike acoustic pianos, a digital piano will never need to be tuned, so you can be confident it will also be ready for play.

Beginners and those who play infrequently will love the versatility of these instruments as they are always ready to make music. And performing musicians will love how quickly they can set up a digital piano in performance spaces. Digital profiles will allow you to save different models so you're always ready to perform and aren't stuck in the menu.

When choosing a grand digital piano, it's important to think about more than just the style of the piece. The number of keys will determine the size of the piano. It also needs to have weighted keys to produce an authentic acoustic piano sound.

Cheaper instruments will have poor-quality keys that can become worn down or chipped with use. The best digital piano for your needs will be one that fits your current playing style and fits into your home with ease. If you have a lot of space, a larger piano will allow you to achieve a bigger sound. But if space is a premium, then an upright digital piano will be perfect for your needs.
