Playing holiday music on the piano has never been so expressive. The DXG-660 is designed to mimic the feel of an organic piano, with all of the dynamic nuances true to your performance remaining intact. Reproducing the sounds and power of the Yamaha CFIIIS 9’ grand piano, the sampling technology built into the DGX-660 guarantees an authentic sound with incredible dynamic range. To enhance that authenticity even further, this instrument features an 88-note Graded Hammer Action keyboard. Every note will respond to your touch and musical expression just the way you want it to, offering a beautiful color palette of tones and textures from your performances. With Piano Room technology programmed to emulate venues and sonic spaces, your rendition of “Jingle Bells” is about to sound better than ever.
Maybe the crew at Sam Ash can give you a head-start on your New Year’s resolution of learning an instrument. The SP4200 from Medeli features an intelligent learning system designed to craft lessons catering to your progress on the piano. Build your skills, break down specific parts of a song and master the instrument through a fun, easy-to-navigate program. For those who have been around the block a bit, the SP4200 is a perfect solution for gigging musicians and for those looking to bring a digital piano to the stage. 600 built-in sounds give you a seemingly infinite amount of instruments to choose from, in addition to a series of effects ranging from echo to tremolo to a slew of reverbs. With strikingly accurate hammer-action keys and powerful built-in speakers, the sound from the Medeli SP4200 Digital Stage is almost eerily genuine. Incredible value at an unbeatable price.
Roland is consistently a slam dunk for players of all calibers, and the FP-30 is no different. Between students, teachers, gigging musicians and casual players, this digital piano is designed to give pianists superior sound and touch, with 88 weighted keys demonstrating Escapement/Ivory Feel. The FP-30 features more than just piano sound patches, letting its users emulate string, organ and vocal timbres on the keys. As opposed to some other digital pianos on the market, these instrument sounds are robust and kosher. In a classroom setting, the FP-30 allows teachers and students to work together in Twin Piano mode. Here, the keyboard is “split” into two parts, so the players can sit together and practice in coordination with each other. With Bluetooth connectivity included, this is an ideal fixture for any setting as a pianist.
Looks like that holiday magic is in the “AiR”. Demonstrating Acoustic and Intelligent Resonator technology, or “AiR” for short, there is unparalleled dynamic level and uncanny realism with the PX-160. Casio put its blood, sweat and tears into this digital piano’s epic 9-foot concert grand piano sound at four dynamic levels. Its remarkable tone and elite performance holds true to the quality Casio has guaranteed over the years. Hammer Response and Ebony/Ivory textured keys promise a sense of authenticity and class for those behind the instrument, putting an emphasis on human emotion with every touch. With a price that almost seems too good to be true, the Casio Privia PX-160 is going to change the way you approach the piano forever.
Last but most certainly not least, the Casio Privia PX-S1000 can be described as sleek, elegant and lean. Tone is not compromised by its thin frame; conversely, you’re promised a grand piano sound and feel. A smart-scaled hammer action keyboard replicates the expressiveness of an organic piano, and signature Casio sound-sourcing technology gives users a strikingly accurate performance setup. To keep up with your ever-growing phone addiction, you’ll be able to connect the PX-S1000 to the Chordana Play application available for iOS and Android devices. Here, you can explore song learning techniques, view PDFs of musical scores, transpose songs, adjust tempo and much more. Pianists at any skill level can reap the benefits of this technology, in addition to falling in love with its larger-than-life sound.
