Your Perfect Piano: What to Look For?

To start, these are the main factors you should consider when purchasing a new digital piano:

1. Budget

High-end digital pianos are crazy expensive, some costing as much as a new car! If that’s up your alley, then go for it; but do your research first. If you want bang for your buck, you’ve come to the right place.

2. Features

If you’re just starting out, all you really need is a digital piano that facilitates the practice of proper piano technique. Experienced players might want keyboards with sound-shaping or detailed recording facilities. We’ll briefly cover what you can expect and why certain features are essential.

3. Goals

True beginners might be a bit apprehensive about starting with an expensive digital piano. What if you find it’s not for you? Well, it’s perfectly fine to start out with a cheaper digital piano or even a keyboard. Upgrades are always available down the line when needed.

4. Space

This is a minor consideration, but if you’re living in a small apartment, you might want to avoid a furniture-like console.

Bigger isn’t always better with digital pianos, and slab-style versions are still worth checking out. In fact, our lists offer recommendations from both categories.

Finally, you also get a USB to Host port, which not only allows you to record MIDI on your devices but also enables you to use Casio’s Chordana Play app to add a graphical user interface for added control.

While the CT-S300 is very basic, it is a complete package. That’s more than you usually get, and that makes this a great budget choice.
