Digital Pianos - Synths & Keyboards
Jump to new posts Re: The Best Choice ? by Charles Cohen @ 04/20/14 06:35 PM

FWIW (at the low end of what might be acceptable) -- I have carried a PX-350 (could have been a PX-150, for straight piano playing), a stand, and an ElectroVoice ZXA1 powered stage monitor to gigs. That's 88 weighted keys, and enough power for &quo

Where in Toronto are you? I have dealt with the keyboard/recording dept at the Oshawa Long and Mcquade often and find them very helpful. They will steer you in the right direction, hopefully within your budget. P.S. For studio/home use right now
Digital Pianos - Synths & Keyboards
Yes, the PX-150 is pretty good value for the money, although if your budget is up to $1000, check out the more advanced PX-5S or PX-350. The PX-5S has no speakers, but the PX-350 has them. The 5S, which is my piano, has also socalled High resolution

The assumption is being made that the modern orchestra and modern vocalists perform in absolute "equal" temperament. We know that just isn't true. So much for the final example. On another note, has anyone ever heard an accordion which i

I have a very old-fashioned bias: . . . For solid bass, you want at least one 8" woofer. Within budget of $300, some possibilities: . . One new KRK Rokit 8 (a "powered studio monitor"); . . one used ElectroVoice ZXA1 (I found one in t

The keyboard reflects the structure of Western music. But that music is not based on the keyboard. The "LOL" makes no sense. Additionally, quite a few people on this board have extensive studies in music. Quote: It's called counterpoint

My suggestion: go with PX-150 and avoid P105. The action on P105 is one of the poorest, while the on on the Casio is much better.

Wolfblade, really nice recordings. Btw, did you tried to mellowing the ca95 tone by softening the hammers parameter? Is it any significant change, which still allows you to fully having fun from playing on it! For me it's also a bit bright, but I liv

I learned tuning via strip muting the entire piano. Starting out, I found it easier to hear/isolate beats that way. In some cases I still find it quicker than single mute, though those cases are usually pianos where the best tuning still won't soun

Assuming it's for home practice, a basic 2.1 system could suffice. Don't think you could get a good PA system for up to $300 dollars, possibly used. Today I connected a 2 speakers + a subwoofer system to my PX-5S, and it came out alright. Power outpu

@Withindale, I'm not sure why only 360 is offered in your location... You can still hear it at 360p though. At 1:31-1:33, you are not hearing pedal (i.e., the dampers are all down on the strings, except for the extra bass notes)--you are ONLY hearin
