Here's a little background:
I am looking into buying a piano and have just found out about digital pianos - I realize I'm way behind the times
I am a very beginner player. Anyway, I cannot afford much at all (probably less than $500) so I am looking at used ones. I don't care anything about being able to make it sound like a violin or anything like that - all I care is that it sounds like an acoustic piano. Also, as far as the looks go, I only like the ones that have a wooden stand with the pedals attached (not a pedal on a cord). Oh and if you can't already tell, I'm totally lost as to what I'm doing
- it took me forever just to figure out how to post this question!
My first question is what are the brands I should be looking at for a very basic digital piano with a good sound and weighted keys? The Williams brand seems inexpensive for new ones, but does that mean they are not good quality?
And secondly, these are a couple ads in my local classifieds:
"Used Technics digital upright Piano for sale. Condition is mint. Model number PX71. Comes with bench. Paid $1800 new in 2000. Asking $375.00"
"This is a 2 yr old Williams Etude digital piano in perfect as new condition. It comes with wood stand, foot pedal, power cord & user's manual. The sound is incredible. Asking $495.00."
Can someone please tell me what they think of these ads and whether or not they are a good deal or if I should stay away from them?
