What to look for when shopping for a keyboard:

  • Always try to buy as close to 88 keys as you can. Look for at least 61.
  • Look for polyphony - this means that as you can play multiple keys at one time. (keyboards listed above have this feature) 
  • Look for touch response/touch sensitive - this means that it will sound louder when you push harder, and also sound quieter when you push lighter. (keyboards listed above have this feature) 
  • Look for weighted keys - this means keys will have resistance like on an acoustic piano (the Yamaha P45, P125 and Casio models listed above have this feature)
