8 Things to Look for in a Digital Piano

8 Things to Look for in a Digital Piano

When looking for a digital piano, there are several key factors to consider, depending on your specific needs and preferences. Here are some important aspects to keep in mind: 

 

1. KEYBOARD ACTION AND TOUCH SENSITIVITY

Look for a digital piano with keys that mimic the feel of an acoustic piano. This includes weighted keys that respond to different levels of pressure, providing a more authentic playing experience. 

For instance, the Yamaha line of Clavinova CLP Digital Pianos comes with the acclaimed GrandTouch-S and GrandTouch Keyboard which faithfully replicates the feel of a Grand Piano. This gives you an unparalleled playing experience.  

 

2. SOUND QUALITY

Ensure that the digital piano produces high-quality sound samples that closely resemble an acoustic piano. Additionally, check for a high polyphony count (the number of notes that can be played simultaneously) to prevent notes from cutting off prematurely, especially during complex pieces. 

3. SIZE, PORTABILITY AND DESIGN

Consider the size and weight of the digital piano, especially if you need it to be portable. Some models are designed to be compact and lightweight, making them easier to transport. 

At the same time, there are also digital pianos that sport a Cabinet-styled design like the Yamaha Clavinova Digital Piano, particularly the CLP series. These pianos are meant to be used at home and form a part of your home furnishing. As such, the myriad of colour options in the CLP series ensures that there is a colour suitable for any home.

4. FEATURES AND FUNCTIONS

Evaluate the available features such as built-in metronomes, recording capabilities, different instrument sounds, and connectivity options like USB, MIDI, and even Bluetooth. Some pianos also come with learning tools and educational features, which can be beneficial for beginners. 

Yamaha’s Clavinova CLP series ticked the various boxes in terms of the abundance of features, functions, and connectivity. Check out the different models within the series to find the one that best fits your needs. 

 

5. PEDALS AND ACCESSORIES

Check whether the digital piano comes with a sustain pedal and if it is compatible with additional pedals. Additionally, consider the availability of accessories such as a stand, bench, headphones, and a music rest. 

 

6. BRAND REPUTATION AND REVIEWS

Check whether the digital piano comes with a sustain pedal and if it is compatible with additional pedals. Additionally, consider the availability of accessories such as a stand, bench, headphones, and a music rest. 

 

7. BUDGET

Set a budget range that aligns with your requirements and level of expertise. While higher-priced models often offer more features and better quality, there are also budget-friendly options that provide decent performance for beginners and intermediate players. 

The Yamaha Clavinova CLP range comes in multiple model options which cater to customers with different budgets. For instance, it can start as low as $2,530 for the entry model, CLP-725.  

8. WARRANTY AND SUPPORT

Look for digital pianos that come with a warranty to protect your investment. Additionally, consider the availability of customer support and after-sales services, which can be crucial for resolving any technical issues or queries. 

All Yamaha Digital Piano, including the Clavinova series, comes with 1 year of manufacturer warranty. Furthermore, Yamaha Singapore has its very own Technical Service Centre which ensures any product-related issues will be well taken care of.

Above are the 8 things to consider when you are looking for a digital piano. By considering these factors, you can find a digital piano that meets your specific musical needs and preferences, whether you are a beginner, an intermediate player, or an experienced musician.
