Need Recommendations for Keyboard (new or vintage) with a few basic "wants"

Recommended Posts

I'm in search of a keyboard (new or vintage) with the following requirements:

Excellent piano sound

61 Keys or less

Full size keys

Ability to transpose

Headphone jack

Built in speakers


Opitional: Midi


Not Required: Synth, Controller


Just a little background........this keyboard will be used primarily as a practice tool for our small ensemble to help teach/keep us on pitch.

I've only had Yamaha products in the past, but would consider other dependable manufacturers as well.


Your thoughts and suggestions would really be appreciated. Thanks for your time and help!!!!!!!

If 'excellent piano sound' is a requirment, then you can cross 'vintage' off your list; which will help your selection process a lot.

Even the budget stuff today, ie, the $400 pianos you can get at Costco are lightyears ahead of the best gear available 20 years ago.


A 5 octave Casio from Costco with built-in speakers will do everything you need it to, and sound good and be really inexpensive.

That's where I would begin my search.
