You don’t have a lot of money to buy your first keyboard but still want to have a model of a suitable quality and adapted to our application? Regardless of your age, if you are new to piano playing, The Nektar Impact GX61 is made for you! With 61 velocity-sensitive notes, modulation wheels and buttons that make it easy to change octaves, this model will provide you with great comfort to get started and reliability. 

The buyers of the Nektar Impact GX61 were very satisfied with their choice and highly recommend it. The only problem with this keyboard is that it is a master keyboard. In other words, it will only emit sound when it is connected to a computer via USB and read by specific software (such as Garage Band or La Touche Musicale). But it is also convenient to connect it to our application! Indeed, the MIDI-USB cable is provided with this model. So you won’t need to buy one separately to practice on Flowkey, La Touche Musicale, Onlinepianist or Simply Piano app.

+ : a certain reliability, a heavy touch, an undeniable playing comfort

– : only emits sound when connected via USB

Average budgets

With its very refined design and classic features, the NP12B from the prestigious Yamaha brand will satisfy the fingers of the most dedicated pianists. Despite a sound quality that is not really there (its speakers are only 2 × 2.5 watts), it is equipped with high-performance sampling and high-flying technology (faithful to the famous Japanese brand).

The model measures 1.03 m in height and weighs only 4.5 kg, so it can be transported quite easily.

In general, the NP12B is therefore a very well-made model whose design has not been rushed. It can easily be used in living rooms, cars, bedrooms (and why not even toilets!). 

+ : the very refined and pleasant design, its transportability, its very simple but effective features, its instinctive handling.

– : the sound quality, its lack of dynamism.

For classes, concerts and even holidays, there is nothing better to nourish your inspiration and your artistic soul than rest and a peaceful environment. You can take your piano with you to the seaside and be inspired by the sound of the waves to compose the most wonderful melodies.

Its natural and heavy touch, easily comparable to that of an acoustic piano, promotes great ease and a very good feeling on the keyboard. 

The designers of the Korg SP-170S have designed a precise and meticulous keyboard, approaching perfection as closely as possible to satisfy their detail-oriented customers and provide them with the best possible quality.
