Customer Kudos

"zZounds has super fast delivery, and makes buying super easy with their flexible monthly payment plans. This is especially helpful in this terrible economy. zZounds puts instruments in reach for many people who would otherwise have to spend a year or two saving up for a guitar. Many are grateful for this business model because they can be learning and playing while they’re paying."

What's the ideal first musical instrument for kids to learn? Hint: It's also the instrument found on every hit pop producer's desk. That's right: keyboards! Keyboards are great for beginners of any age, because sound production requires just the press of a key. The keys make it easy to visualize scales and chords, helping you learn music theory. And if you learn to play piano, you can create an endless variety of sounds, thanks to modern synthesizers.

Ready to start? Check out zZounds' Beginner's Gear Guide to Keyboards to find our picks for digital pianos, MIDI controllers and more.

Some of our most popular MIDI controllers aren't keyboards at all: they're pad controllers for triggering loops and samples. Just add a computer and software! Call our Gear Experts now for help with your purchase: 800-460-8089.
