Buying your first piano can be a daunting task, especially if you are not a pianist or musician yourself. It can be difficult to determine which piano to buy or whether you should invest in purchasing a piano at all.
When you want to buy your first keyboard, it’s often confusing to
know exactly what to get. Keyboard or piano? Or do you actually want a digital piano? And what are the differences between the two?
The most important fact is the following:
From the smallest to the largest, they are ALL keyboard
instruments. Even a Steinway concert grand is a keyboard instrument.
Over the years though, taking acoustic pianos out of the equation, the
distinction between digital pianos and keyboards has become palpable. A
digital piano feels like the real thing, is heavier to lift (because of
the weighted keys) and sounds more like a real piano (a very subjective
thing), whereas a keyboard is (generally) smaller, lighter, and, most of
the time, has way more features than a digital piano.
