Probably the best purchase that I have ever made on Amazon. Perfect for students. Affordable. If compared to Yamaha P-45, there should not be any huge differences; besides “P-71” makes it some how more special since it’s made for Amazon. Weighted keys are super legit that make me feel so good when playing. The sound is soft and

The sustain pedal does not work. It does the opposite of what it supposed to do. When you don't press it the sound is sustained, but then when you press it the sound got cut off.
Also, cannot register the product. Yamaha doesn't seem to have an option of P-71.

UPDATE ON SUSTAIN PEDAL.

This is a great digital piano for the price. The feel of the weighted keys is the same as much more expensive digital pianos such as the Arias line, and the sound is warm and full. It is lovely to sit and play on. Since the keys are weighted, it is somewhat heavy and I would recommend getting the stand (the P85 stand fits) and a nice

It is my first experience in playing a keyboard (piano for that matter). This keyboard has a lot of great features for learning. It is compact and doesn't take up too much space in my small apartment. I can wear headphones while I play so I can play late into the night without disturbing my neighbors. It comes with an instruction manual

I am really happy with this instrument, and surprised at the quality of the sound and the price. I've always liked Yamaha products, tuner/amplifiers, guitars, and now keyboards. It's been awhile since I've bought anything, so was a little concerned whether the quality was still there. I'm happy to say the quality is sti.ll

Bought this to go with the Alesis 88 key, keyboard. It was recommended by Amazon to go together, so I bought it. It's nice! But the only thing is that the screws on the straps on the stand are too thin to screw into the bottom of the keyboard. So it doesn't hold securely. We'll have to get new screws to make it hold

I have a Casio Privia 160 and had the single crossbar stand. It rocked when I attempted to slide in on the chords. With this stand there is not any movement at all. It is rock solid. Set up was a snap. It took maybe 5 minutes including adjustment time. The straps seem to be useless for me though I have yet to flip my keyboard over and

It worked great for a year and then just stopped working. One day it just fell with the piano on it and now won’t lock anymore! Luckily no one was playing it at the time but now I’m worried my other stands are going to collapse! Sad because o used to love it for the ease, flexibility, and easy storage, but that’s when I thought it

The description was misleading, the CTK 2550’s are NOT midi capable. As a piano teacher, a general midi connection is a requirement for my students.

6 MONTH UPDATE:
So, I have had this piano now for close to 6 months and couldn't be happier. Just the starter piano you would give a child to get them started. Sound quality and volume is fantastic. Only gripe so far has been that keys aren't as well weighted but for the price, that is easy to overlook.

Customer service is a nightmare. We bought this keyboard as a Christmas gift for our daughter. The sound is quite good, and the weighted keys really are close to a real piano.

I couldn't be any happier with this piano, I play it every day. The sound is great and the volume gets pretty loud at least in my opinion.

The piano is great, as a piano. Weighted keys have a natural feel, and the piano tone is gorgeous, better than a more expensive Yamaha I used to have (guessing the sampling has improved, or the speakers, or both).
One or two of the organ sounds are interesting as well, but I find most of the strings and electric piano sounds kinda

Very good case for the Akai MPK Mini. It is not super rigid so I would not recommend putting this in airplane luggage on it's own. But due to it's form factor it fits really nicely into a bigger suitcase. The padding is quite nice and the case seems to be very well put together.

This controller works well enough as a basic keyboard, but I bought it for the buttons and knobs... which don't work in standard MIDI mode. You have to use the included software to take advantage of those buttons.

So far, I like everything about it, especially the sounds of the various instruments.

Yes the sounds are very good. And the price is very reasonable. But when you plug it into a sound system, you'd think your were back in the days of cassette tapes.
