The editor will first highlight a few key points: keys, tone, specifications (including additional functions), size, and budget. Let’s look at these points~

1: Budget is very important. The limit is just to add a few thousand to the budget (if it exceeds, don’t read it).

Before buying a digital piano, do you have to calculate your budget first? There are so many kinds of electric pianos, ranging from more than 10,000 for beginners to 40,000 to 50,000 for intermediate ones, more than 60,000 for advanced ones, and even more than 100,000 for top-level pianos. There is absolutely no such thing as being super cheap and looking like a traditional piano. Electronic pianos are You really get what you pay for, and you can only choose the best one based on your budget, so budget is very important. Suppose your budget is 30,000 yuan, and then add a few thousand yuan to your budget, this is To the limit (because this also involves the issue of credit card installment), never look at an electric piano that is too much over your budget, otherwise you will never be able to choose one.

2: Keys, you have to choose the weight and rebound of the keys you like. Whether the keys are wooden or not has nothing to do with these two points.

Customers often ask, which one has the keys that are most like a traditional piano? Then I want to ask you instead - what do you think the weight of a traditional piano key is? Most customers will say ~ the heavier, the more similar it is! ! Traditional pianos are divided into upright pianos and platform pianos. These two types of pianos are divided into different sizes. The weight and rebound of the keys of each piano are different. Therefore, it is very important to choose the weight and rebound of the keys you like. In other words, you must try it yourself before you know it, and you must do it under a comparative situation (that is, there must be several instruments on site for you to compare) before you try it. Find out which electric piano has the easiest keys and is most suitable for you. Never have the idea that wooden keys = heavy keys. Wooden keys will not be very heavy because wood is usually not selected as a heavy material. Traditional keys are heavy because the hammer striking system behind the keys is different from traditional keys. The length is related, and the wooden keys used in electric pianos have nothing to do with weight.

3: Tone, pick your most commonly used tone and your favorite.

The timbre of each brand is definitely different. They are all sampled from the timbre of traditional pianos, so the timbre should be determined by the timbre you use most. Suppose I am a beginner in classical piano, and I must buy an electric piano with the best piano timbre. Then I started learning pop piano, so in addition to the piano timbre, you also need to listen to the string timbre or the organ timbre.

4: Size, the size of the electric piano is very important. Choose the right size so that the space will not become crowded.

If you are renting a house or living in an apartment, size is very important to you. Don’t insist on buying a very large electric piano. It will not fit and cannot be stored. In the end, it will only cause a lot of headaches. What you should choose is a narrow electric piano, which takes up little space, is easy to place, and is easy to move. If you live with a clear sky or a lot of space, then size is not an issue for you and you can buy it.

5: Specifications (including additional functions), the number of speakers, the output and whether there is an ambient effect of headphones, or a Bluetooth support app or a Bluetooth speaker.

Usually the editor will consider the specifications later. The specifications are what most adults will consider when buying a piano. Whether the sound effect of headphones is important is of course also very important. When buying a digital piano, you can wear headphones to practice. What about the sound effects of headphones? It's very important. The number and output of the speakers will definitely affect the timbre. Bluetooth speakers and Bluetooth apps are the current trend in electric pianos, which make them more convenient and practical to control, or they also add a lot of entertainment.

So how do beginners choose the right electric piano for themselves?

The editor recommends that you put budget and size first, decide on the scope of these two, and then choose the keys, tone, or specifications you like. Be sure to do your homework online first, and then go to the musical instrument store. Only by trying it carefully can you feel the difference in brands, keys, and timbres. You get what you pay for when it comes to electric pianos. The more expensive ones will have better functions and sounds, and the cheaper ones will have their own reasons for being cheap. So if you don’t set a budget range, you will only end up comparing endlessly, and end up burning it yourself. brain. Therefore, I would like to give some suggestions for beginners to choose an electric piano. Whether you want to use it yourself or buy it for a child who is just learning, you should first decide the budget and size, and then choose the one that suits you from the keys, tone, specifications or additional functions. Yes.
