I like the sound of piano, not sure I'd change that. But I would like to see more basic ergonomic work done regarding the key actions, rather than the blind copying of existing AP weighting and quirks. Try to find something that most would agree is

IMHO no DP, whether through its native sounds or through sampled software pianos or software modelled pianos, provides the complexity of sound of an acoustic, which is indeed difficut to control. However, software pianos get closer than DP native so

Hello, MRC- Effectively, the voicing at different points along the lateral width of the hammer head are different. The points on the hammer head where groves typically develop, the default, un-shifted position, may lead to the brightest sound depend

39. Silver Keys - Fur Elise - I think this is one of the famous piano pieces of all time; it is, for sure, one of Beethoven's most popular compositions. I'm sure that if you control a little better the pedal it will be a success at your teacher's rec

ES7. Sounds good on default. Best playing action imo by far. Try these out for size. The low profile ones might not suit your feet (pedal distance too short) or your head, (music stand too small and too low) but some people here will have no real

Here is a recent thread in which the sub $1000 DPs have been discussed. In addition to your list, don't rule out the Casio PX150 or 350 - the 350 having a few more bells and whistles. Lately most people have gravitated toward either one of these

Welcome again to Piano World, Carly! In theory, the newer Kawai piano seems the better choice as it is a longer piano, and the age of the Knabe, despite its 2013 rebuild may count against it. However, until you play and see both pianos it is imposs
