I know the Titan 7700 is a Chinese-made off-brand keyboard, and has significant faults when compared to Yamaha, Casio, etc...

The pros of the purchase include the fact that it is a 88-key weighted instrument, and I can get it for around $100 or less.

I am planning to purchase a nicer digital in the next two years when I have a more permanent location, but think this might be a nice investment to tide me over. I haven't played the instrument yet, but will go take a look at it sometime this week. Should I bother? According to the seller, a few of the keys, "clack," which I can't really comment on until I've played the instrument.

I am a high school music teacher and classical singer who would use the instrument for practice and to have as a resource at my apartment when I am away from school. I have taken over 10 years of classical piano lessons, but will likely not be utilizing the keyboard for classical playing extensively.

Any advice/comments or experience working with the Titan brand would be helpful. Thanks for reading!

Hello, and welcome to the forum.

I am not familiar with the instrument you are referring to, however 88 weighted keys for under $100 is certainly quite an attractive deal.

That being said, however, if the instrument feels and sounds like junky, what's the point?

I believe you can pick up an entry level Casio, Yamaha, or Korg for approximately $400-$500 - if you find the Titan board to be unacceptable, I'd strongly recommend paying a little more to go with an established, respected brand.

Cheers,
James

Any horses out there want to weigh-in on this?

Seriously, I did a Google search of the Titan 7700 and came up empty. Got any links?
