ACORN MASTERKEY 61

 

69,00€ – 110,00€

General review

?

The Acorn Masterkey 61 is the definition of simplicity and efficiency. This master keyboard, which can only be used when connected to the computer (the keyboard has no speakers to produce sound on its own), is perfect for getting the hang of it during your first years of learning.

Once connected in USB to the computer, it is immediately recognized and it is then immediately possible to practice on The Musical Key.

Its touch is not heavy (but at this price you can’t have everything), but it remains dynamic and allows you to practice in all fluidity.

This entry-level model will satisfy beginners wishing to practice efficiently and at a lower cost.

The Nektar Impact GX61 is a product that works wonderfully with all media: computer, mac, tablet as well as Android and iPhone.

Really plug and play, this instrument offers an excellent key response and remains light and easy to store. The size of the keys is really similar to that of a real piano.

General review

??

Casio introduced the world’s first electronic keyboard in 1980, bringing the gift of music and creativity to thousands.

Nearly 40 years later, the new Casiotone series is a complete change, building on the brand’s tradition of innovation, versatility and value for money.

The new Casiotone series is designed to be the most portable 61-note keyboard in the world.

New features such as an integrated carrying handle, piano shaped keys, longer battery life, smooth corners and a slim profile make it the perfect introduction to music.

The new LCD display and jog wheel allow for fewer buttons and a clear, uncluttered panel.
The CT-S200 is the easiest to use keyboard in its class.

299,00€ – 399,00€

General review

????

The Thomann SP 320 is an excellent instrument for people who want to discover the piano or for more advanced players who need a digital piano for practice.

It is easy to learn and use. Moreover, its simple and uncluttered design remains of good quality. However, it remains somewhat limited in the various features it offers.

In short, this is a very good Thomann digital piano model whatever your level of music, and at a very good price for an instrument of this quality.

YAMAHA P45 PORTABLE DIGITAL PIANO 88 KEYS BEGINNER CONSERVATORY P-45 P 45

345,00€ – 499,00€

General review

????

The Yamaha P-45’s sleek design and quality make it the benchmark in portable digital pianos. The 88-note Graded Hammer action keyboard with matte black keys provides the natural feel of a traditional piano. 

The performance of its amplification offers optimal playing comfort in rehearsals and at home. The professional quality P-45 is also dedicated to the stage with its 64-note polyphony. Its sound catalog includes a total of 10 instruments including grand pianos, electric pianos, organs, harpsichord, vibraphone and symphonic strings. All these sounds benefit from the integrated digital effects such as Reverb or Chorus. 

The Dual mode allows you to superimpose two sounds in order to enrich your interpretation and allows, for example, to play the piano and the strings simultaneously. Practical for the student and his teacher, the Duo mode separates the keyboard into 2 identical parts to facilitate reproduction and repetition. The transposition but also the tuning refinement allows you to adapt your playing to all repertoires. The USB port allows the connection to a computer in order to benefit from numerous applications. The P45 comes with a sustain pedal and you can purchase the optional Yamaha L85 stand for comfort and style.

With all of its features, the Yamaha P45 is a compact, high-performance piano at an affordable price that will go anywhere you go.
