Buying a digital piano – recommendations for latest models from Yamaha, Casio and Korg including the Korg microPiano

One of the most popular posts on this blog is the one with information on digital pianos. Whilst researching online the options available for one of my students to purchase, I came across these options. I would say my favourite is the Korg – perhaps because of the way it looks!

Yamaha: NP30 Portable Digital Piano (Silver Finish)
£259 from Musicroom

This fantastic Digital Piano is the perfect portable instrument. It offers slim, light and compact design and a 76-key touch response keyboard. You will be impressed not only by it’s compact size and light weight body, but also by it’s superior sound quality. It contains 10 high-quality instrument voices, a metronome, 10 voice-demos and 10 piano songs.

Casio: CDP-100 Lightweight Digital Piano (Stand Not Included)
£299.00 on sale from Musicroom.

The ideal instrument for beginners and everyone who wants to give Piano-playing a real chance. For this reason, CDP-100 features an absolutely authentic Grand Piano stereo sound and touch. Together with the dual elements technology HL sound chip and Natural-Scaled Hammer Action keyboard this Piano provides an individual sound source for strong or light touch.

Korg: microPIANO Digital Mini Grand Piano – Red
£269 from Musicroom.

Korg’s microPIANO digital piano is charming, conveniently sized, and designed like a grand piano – complete with an opening lid! Small in size, the microPIANO features Korg’s expressive 61-key Natural Touch mini-keyboard, carefully designed to provide true playability.

Excellent playing feel, suitable for both beginners and for serious performers. This is definitely the option I would chose if I was buying a digital piano!

Korg: SP170BK Digital Piano
£429 from Musicroom.

With a clean, fresh design that omits the traditional control panel, the portable and stylish SP-170 emphasizes the vital piano elements: a comfortable keyboard and satisfying sound. It is relatively light and portable, weighing around 26lbs.
