However, digital piano have come a long way and are definitely worth considering, especially as technology advances and they become cheaper. Although the Alesis Recital Pro doesn’t sound quite as good or play quite as well as our other picks, it’s clearly the standout value. It’s typically about $100 less expensive than the Casio CDP-S150, and that savings is somewhat evident in the quality of the sounds that this piano produces.

This was a good price for a beginner digital piano. That is, there’s no way unless you use Roland’s Piano Partner 2 mobile app , which is excellent. It connects to the keyboard via Bluetooth , and through it you can easily adjust every parameter, including sound selection, volume, and metronome settings. In order to use the CDP-S150 with the Chordana Play app, you need to connect your mobile device to the keyboard’s USB Type-B port, as there is no Bluetooth connectivity.

The Recital Pro is an affordable piano that’s easy to use and sacrifices only a little in feel and performance features. Our top pick has been discontinued and replaced with the CDP-S160, which appears to be identical in design and features but has an improved grand piano tone.

Its perfect combination of quality and simplicity makes it an ideal choice for players of all ages and experience levels. The Glarry GDP-103 digital piano features a streamlined, user-friendly design that’s focused on performance and classic visual appeal. The CDP-S150 comes with the SP-3 sustain pedal, which acts like the rightmost pedal on an acoustic piano and controls whether the notes ring out after being played or are immediately dampened. This style of pedal, though it has textured rubber on the bottom, tends to move around the floor pretty easily unless you tape it down . The optional SP-34 three-pedal add-on gives you the additional soft and sostenuto pedals found on an acoustic piano, and I recommend upgrading to it at some point.

These improvements are due to the fact that Roland uses the same action (the PHA-4 Standard) and piano sound engine in the FP-10 that it uses in its more expensive FP-30. To get a graphic interface, you can use the CDP-S150 with Casio’s Chordana Play app for iOS and Android. Through the app you can change everything that you can control with the keyboard buttons, but in a much more pleasing way. Changing the metronome tempo in the app is also far easier, and it includes simple beginner lessons, although some reviews have reported issues getting the app to read MIDI files (we didn’t experience this issue directly). I then set off to a few Los Angeles music stores to get my hands on some keys, talk to the store employees—who work around these instruments every day—and whittle down the list. After contacting manufacturers to request samples and to get suggestions on pianos that might better fit our guidelines, we narrowed the list down to seven keyboards.

Easy to assemble, and my wife was playing right a way……sounds good and has a ton of options. The main problem with the Roland FP-10 is its lack of availability. This piano regularly goes out of stock and can be tough to find. If you happen to come across the FP-10 online or in a local store, I recommend picking it up over the Casio CDP-S150.
