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.

I have played piano for 18 years now and recently moved into my own place. I desperately missed having a piano to play on a daily basis, but I do not have the space for a real piano. I did a SIGNIFICANT amount of research before settling on this Yamaha digital piano, because I wanted a high quality instrument that also did not hugely

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

The brand new Akai Professional Mini MPK MKIII is absolutely amazing! Everything about it feels great, including the 8 touch pads, 8 nobs (which are infinite turning), the buttons, and the 25 keybeds. The software included is also very easy to download and install, while being compatible with the new MACOS Catalina update. I would

The good:

- I love the aesthetic. The all black color way with the red accents looks fantastic.

- The endless encoders feel great when turning and have the right amount of resistance in my opinion.

- Keys feel solid considering the size.

- Screen is a nice addition. Visual feedback is always

I'm an adult first time learner with NO background in piano. It's just always been on my wish list to learn to play and I figured why not buy a cheap keyboard and give it a try. If I never get the hang of it, it's only a couple of bucks lost. I was going to get the Alesis because it was a more heavily reviewed product, but ended up going

I bought it because I liked the light up feature. The sound quality is very good, and even though it's a keyboard there is some spring tension in the keys.

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.

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.

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.

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).

An interesting instrument. Monotones are made by pressing down on certain areas with the stylus (attached).

This is a really good styolophone and is super retro looking. There are more pros than cons to this but here are some cons:
1. Doesn’t come with batteries
2. Can look a little plastic-y around the silver parts
3. Low batteries can make it go out of tune
Pros:
1. Very portable

Super stoked about my new Fire controller. It immediately provided me with a means to improvise rhythm patterns directly in the channel rack of FL Studio.

Decent controller for fruity loops, but that is all it is. I still feel like it's easier and faster to use fl software without this unit.
