Hi there,

I have recently moved away from home (and my lovely grand piano) for the year. I need to get a keyboard to practice on, but I’d like it to be of good quality (I.e. it feels good to play on, don’t really care about other features). I’m setting aside a budget of ~£800 for this.

I have no knowledge of electric pianos so I’d like some recommendations. I’d probably want to buy it second hand as in London the market is good for this and I’d get a better deal.

Can anyone help me out with this?

Kawai es110. None better imo. £474.00 at Bonners. Free delivery.

Just a fine keyboard and sound.

Should be able to find it in a London shop to try

Would you say these are better than, say, a used clavinova or something similar? I do think having a sturdy stand might be important, especially when practicing more involved things…

i understand you are looking at a time period of about 12 months. a slab will be easier to move (pick up, move in, move around, move out) and to sell. you can get really solid stands for slabs (eg. the dedicated stand for each model, aftermarket z stands) so that shouldn't be an issue

but if you prefer a furniture model for reasons other than stability (eg. getting an action closer to your grand) then others here will be able to advise you much better than i
