"really really nice piano."
zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
this is my second piano and probably my last one at my age.bought both here at zZounds on the payment plan.Thank you zounds.I have only had this three days and I am just a beginner but I am not new to music and electronic being a Guitarist for 40 years.Here is my review for now.I really dug deep to find the right one for me.1. it had to have the right feel.2. the sounds had to be the best for 699.00 or less.every thing else would be icing on the cake.This feels like a real piano should for the most part its heavy to play and not a toy.it doesn't have a lot of key noise when it's turned off.it has the settings plus off key feel.2. it sounds very much like a real piano much like a Steinway from what I have heard.it has a bunch of grand piano sounds and they are all usable.I have yet to find a sound I don't like.I haven't been through every sound but most are extremely useful.I have checked all the functions that I could in three days and everything works.I have not checked the recording. So far so good. it has 1 output but you can go out the phone jacks.its very intuitive to use
weaknesses I have found.speakers are not that loud, real world rating is around 3 real watts or less comparing to a tube amp. they don't do justice to this piano.I have powered speakers and a katana 50 and it sounds just wonderful through them.I set the katana on the acoustic setting.a great little amp.this is a weekend warrior tool and not a daily road warrior. things like the jacks would have to be reinforced for that. I like it so far and believe it will meet my needs.
Sound is very good on this but I haven't tried them all. pianos are exceptional. download the manual for all the six hundred sounds.see the many hidden vids on the utube.you can change between sounds without interruptions.
lots of features.recording,performance assist,lessons chords on screen, to name a few.
Ease of Use
its intuitive for the most part but there are some parts where you will need the excellent easy to understand manual that comes with it.
I can't speak to reliability in just a few days but at this point it seems well made for the price.
compared to whats available from other makers its a big bargain. hundreds of dollars cheaper, more features then you need and sound as good as the top sellers, if not better and more realistic. I think of the top 4 makers. I have only head one live but this sounds better to my ears.
The Wow Factor
LOL. I have a beautiful blue strat setting in front of me.it has the wow factor.the Medeli is the new girl and shes cute.
40 years guitarist.
