Sound: Sounds is good, but it's not a real steinway grand. Feature: Features is kind of like the older model clainovas. This model includes enough for the digital piano to act like a piano, but not really a whole lot more. Get a synth if you want more. Ease of Use: AWESOMELY easy assembly! Other than that, use it like a regular piano. Quality: Yamaha Quality, hello? Near Perfect but not Steinway. Value: Best digital piano for under 1000 dollars. The Wow Factor: Sexy! By far the most sexy in its class. Overall: If you want to pay a thousand or less for a keyboard/piano without a lot of effects, then this is what you get.

Overall: If you're a pianist who doesn't need a lot of sounds, then this is the set up for you. The main "grand piano" sound sounds really nice with just a touch of reverb.. It's a very dark sounding classical/jazz sound. The second sound is brighter and sounds more like an upright which is nice for pop/country. All the other sounds are so so, not very pleasant to my ears. The strings are rather pleasant though. But if a multitude of great sounds is what you want then this is not the keyboard for you. Midi works great, but the response of the pedals are finicky. Granted, I was going into garageband. The sustain only worked when the pedal was all the way down. Whereas the direct output (1/4" headphone jack) actually payed more dynamic attention to how the pedals were pressed. Other than that it's quite nice.

1. zZounds offers the industry‘s most musician-friendly payment plans

zZounds offers a variety of Play as You Pay installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today. While our competitors might offer house credit cards that require you to fill out an application and pass a credit check, our payment plans are easy to get, simple to use, and, best of all, accrue zero interest. Unlike those house credit cards that can leave you vulnerable to exorbitant interest charges once the promotional period ends, we never have and never will charge interest when you take advantage of one of the zZounds Play as You Pay plans.
