Lets just say I brought a Digital Piano and 5 years later and I want to sell it. Would the price depreciate, will I be able to get anything out of it? I have some Keyboards that I can't sell,I have outgrown them. One has 47 keys and the other has 6l keys. I know that new things are always out there in the market. Well, I would like to get an 88 size digital piano..will this happen again to me? Will I be able to sell this for a good price? :rolleyes:

Digital pianos depreciate in prize rather quickly. After about two years you may only get half of what you've paid for it.
Digital pianos and keyboards are, after all, computers and since technology is moving fast, they become outdated soon.

Btw: a digital piano should always have 88 keys.

Nici is correct. I bought a digital yamaha clavinova 18 months ago for $1,500 and it probably fetches $700-$900 today.
