    if you’re in nyc you should check out keyboards on craigslist, see if you stick with piano and then consider spending more money for a nicer one next year. nyc craigslist is the shit!

    Steal the one at Louvre , used by Louis XVI.
    That's the best one.

    Edit: I made it up. I don't actually know if there's a Louis XVI piano at Louvre. Don't go try to steal one. Sorry.

      @cruella - buddy you need to stop trolling the f*ck out of every post just so you can get points and likes 🙄

      Yes. Sir!

      But what if I told u the journey is more important than the destination?

      What if the trolling is more important. And I troll for trolling's sake. And not for likes etc?

    Get a guitar instead and be a rock star.

    Ugh, actually these days it's a DJ set from Guitar Center.

      Get a piano keyboard that's a midi device. You can still do dj with it if you remap some stuff. But best of all you could compose epic music using FL studio etc with some badass kontakt libraries.

      Or better yet build vst plug-ins using your cs knowledge

      I have guitars too, and yes, not only you can learn both, but it’s best to learn both at the same time.

    Anything works. I like Yamaha klavinova. I like its feel. Also look at bad snacks channel on YouTube. She uses all kinds of keys and makes great records. If you know what you’re doing keyboard doesn’t matter

    Disclaimer I also have the real thing.

      Look at cvp 701 and report back

      The only time you need a real thing is when you are or trying to become a pianist. Everyone else can get by with a keyboard

      No model number is necessary honestly it’s the sound and the condition and the price for your situation. You need an upright standard piano with ur budget and needs and home size. It’ll last u years.

    Been playing since 3 years old and used to play on average of 2 hours a day.

    Start full key set and stay that way
    The best way to learn is to do the real thing. The keys are different and the feel is different

    Unless you want to casually play but I would do the full set

      Yamaha is great! I personally had one for many years, and it’s not too expensive :)

      You should go on Craigslist or something for ur budget for a used one. They work great. U just need to check when u get there the inside to see the condition and hire a piano tuner after

      To fit your budget over all, I would get something for 300$ (I did buy one for that much but it was an old Wurlitzer but worked great not as good as Yamaha but may be hard to find a Yamaha with that budget but just look around) and the tuner costs 100-200$ so that’s ur budget of 500 ish. But you may go over depending for moving costs. Hope this helps!!

    Get one of the Casio privia models. 88 keys and fully weighted. No frills, light and transportable, good basic sounds, etc. Would highly recommend.
