View Full Version : Help finding a keyboard.

09-13-2009, 05:00 AM
I'm looking to get into remixing and I'm in need of a keyboard on a budget of about $400, however I would like to find one that could double as a piano for my mother. From what I've seen though at this price point it's hard to find a keyboard that's good as a controller and a piano instead of just average at both or horrible at one and good at the other.

Is it possible for me to get something quality for such a low budget?

While you might find something like this (http://keyboards-midi.musiciansfriend.com/product/MAudio-ProKeys-88sx-Keyboard-and-MIDI-Controller?sku=706300) in your price range, you really won't find anything that has fully weighted keys. Some people can deal with that sort of drastic change in action, though. I would take her to shop that has something like the M-audio keyboard in stock and have her try it out.

If you can shell out just a little more, you can get the full ProKeys, which has weighted Keys.

$528 at Amazon. (http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0009X6QN8/ref=pd_lpo_k2_dp_sr_1?pf_rd_p=486539851&pf_rd_s=lpo-top-stripe-1&pf_rd_t=201&pf_rd_i=B000EWAE0A&pf_rd_m=ATVPDKIKX0DER&pf_rd_r=0QR9FHVHHE6CAGYQN047)
