Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
I am so glad I purchased this keyboard through zZounds. The price was right, shipping was free and it was delivered just days after my order.I misunderstood and thought my purchase included a stand and headphones, which it didn't, but it did include music books that I wasn't expecting.I purchased this economical keyboard before investing in a more expensive digital piano to make sure my renewed interest in playing the piano isn't a passing fancy.I have spent hours practicing. I would buy one if these for each of my friends who express an interest in learning to play the piano.
