Yamaha Digital Pianos: Contemporary Series
We strive to help musicians, families, kids, first-timers, professionals, and anyone else to find an instrument that will suit their needs. Sometimes an acoustic piano just isn't in the cards, especially in New York City where space can be tight and sound can be an issue. A new digital piano made by Yamaha is a great way to get started. The two models we stock are both full-sized with 88 keys, and have weighted actions to feel like pianos keys. They are also touch-sensitive, meaning that they have dynamics in sampling from a very quiet pianissimo to a loud and powerful forte. Each model is headphone compatible and has connectivity to modern computers for all kinds of extra features. We are proudly offering full value on trade-ins toward an acoustic piano, at any time. So you can start with a Yamaha keyboard today and trade in toward a real piano in two years or more--a great deal!
All Yamaha digital pianos feature a 3 year manufacturer-offered warranty. Please note that Big Wrench Piano Care is not shipping Yamaha keyboards at this time. The keyboards are available for local pickup only and local New York City delivery can be available for an additional charge.
Yamaha Portable Keyboards: NP Series & PSR-E353
These keyboards are lightweight and battery powered, with the option of an AC power supply sold separately, with a sustain pedal and headphone package. The keys are not weighted like an acoustic piano and we do not recommend these for any one seriously intending to study the art of playing the piano as the weight resistance of the keys is very important. But these keyboards do have their place. They are smaller (61 and 74 keys) and portable, and have several features that acoustic pianos do not have. They are also better for aspiring jazz and rock organ players as the keys are similarly (non)weighted. While we strongly recommend the P45 or P115 for most students beginning lessons, these portable keyboards have their place and are certainly better than no keyboard at all! Please call, email or stop in to discuss the right keyboard for you or your aspiring young musician.
