About Digital Pianos

Digital pianos offer the look, feel and sound of an acoustic piano at an affordable price. A wide range of features are available such as high quality sounds and voices, a controllable metronome and the ability to practice with headphones. These make digital pianos excellent for use both at home and on stage.

Frequently Asked Questions about Digital Pianos

The first pedal is the Damper pedal, also known as the Sustain pedal. On an acoustic piano this pulls the dampers away from all of the strings, leaving them free to resonate and giving the piano a very large sound. The Sostenuto pedal works in a similar fashion to the Damper, but instead leaves only the notes which are pressed at the time of pedal activation open. This widens your piano's palette of sounds and can be great for creating some unique textures. Finally, the Soft pedal, also known as an Una Corda pedal, softens the timbre of the sound and gives the piano a more restrained feel. These pedals generally operate in the same fashion regardless of the voice being used.
The sound of a piano covers a very wide range of frequencies evenly. We therefore recommend you select a set from our collection of Studio Headphones. These offer a flat frequency response and pristine sound which will be ideal for use with your piano.
While the real thing has stuck around for centuries for a reason, digital pianos now sound and feel extremely similar to their strung counterpart. They also offer several conveniences not found in acoustic pianos. Firstly, digital pianos are far more affordable than acoustics, and the price of a flagship digital piano will only buy you the most basic acoustic piano. A digital piano will also never go out of tune, while acoustic pianos can drift out of tune simply due to a change in humidity or temperature. Acoustic pianos offer no volume control, and with the exception of physically playing softer, there is nothing you can do to control how loud your acoustic piano is. A digital piano, on the other hand, can be turned up or down, or even played with headphones so you don't bother anyone else while you play. Digital pianos offer a range of sounds. Want it to sound like an organ or electric piano? How about a string section? These are standard options on any digital piano, and there are many more voices available, versus your acoustic piano's one sound. Virtually all digital pianos offer USB connectivity so you can use it to control your music software. Last but not least, a growing number of digital models offer iOS and Bluetooth connectivity, which opens up a range of options such as fine-tuning the piano's sounds or even piano lessons.
