Professional pianists may find them useful for bringing to gigs or for connecting to a computer for recording. They’re also useful for practicing with headphones so that you don’t bother cohabitants. The overall construction is a mixed bag, the wiring seems to be done very well, and the pots had great spread and no noticeable buzz came from the pickups. On the other hand, the nut is poorly cut, the tuners are hard to turn, the guitar has subpar tuning stability, but the frets are very level and smooth. At the end of the day, I would say I’m more impressed than disappointed because of how truly cheap the guitar is.

He regularly gigs on double bass with various jazz groups, and his self-produced album Take2 rose as high as number three on the Roots Music Report jazz album chart. Phil Metzler is a lifelong musician who plays keyboards (and occasionally trumpet) in the pop/rock band Just Off Turner, which has released five studio albums. He also composes music in his home studio in Los Angeles. I received my electric guitar the other day, very fast delivery. Frets were flawless the neck pocket is super tight.beautiful paint job.

Brent, who is much less skilled, ranked it first because he liked the lighter feel. John found that the keybed felt a little shallow and lacking in the depth his fingers were used to, especially as his fingers got closer to the keyboard body (between the black keys). Of the affordably priced digital pianos we’ve tried, the FP-10 comes closest to the feel and sound of a grand piano. The Alesis Recital was the least expensive model in our original round of tests, and the corner-cutting was obvious—it was everyone’s least favorite keyboard. It doesn’t come with a sustain pedal, and in our tests the keyboard felt more like that of a synthesizer than a piano. Brent commented that the simplistic piano sound lacked detail.

The price is cheap, and the product material, sound quality and… Upon receipt I noticed there was a few quality control issues with the guitar. I let customer service know of the specific issues and they handled the situation very very well to my satisfaction.

Later, while sitting on the toilet, Neil is sucked through the pipes and comes out dressed as Mario. He encounters his brother, dressed as Luigi, and the two discuss their surroundings. Realizing where he is, Neil and his brother say “”Oh, fu-“” but they are cut off by a Fade to Black.

They have done nothing to address the damage on this instrument. When it arrived there was some slight damage to the neck; maybe in transit, who knows but it was a gift so not great. Once I’d sent an image of the issue to the customer service team they were very quick to rectify and sent a replacement straight away. Great value for money instrument for a beginner and my son loves it. At Glarry, customer satisfaction is always our number one priority.

The FP-10 uses the same action and piano sound engine found in Roland’s more expensive FP-30, and John and Phil—the most accomplished pianists in our recent rounds of testing—both rated the FP-10 first in sound and playability. These digital keyboards are perfect for any student, of any age, who is interested in learning how to play piano. They are inexpensive (by piano standards), they have built-in speakers so an extra amplifier isn’t necessary, and they include multiple piano sounds. These keyboards are relatively light—all our picks weigh under 30 pounds—so it’s possible for one person to carry the piano when necessary. Although the Alesis Recital Pro doesn’t sound quite as good or play quite as well as our other picks, it’s clearly the standout value.
