Medeli DP260 Digital Piano: Everything You Need to Know

Have a restricted amount of space to work with, but don’t want to limit your sound? The Medeli DP 260 is the perfect digital piano for keyboardists with small practice spaces, and who are always on the go. From beginners to advanced players, this portable instrument is packed with great voices, useful learning features, and compatible options for you to develop your musicianship, experiment with different sounds, and play to your heart’s content wherever you’d like.

Easy to Assemble and Portable

This slick, compact, digital piano is easy to assemble and has a lightweight structure so you can move and position it anywhere with ease. All functions are on the left-hand side of the keys, plus, you can make memory bank selections by pressing the keys themselves. This simplistic design by Medeli eliminates the need for a large screen with an extended upper panel, and saves you plenty of room – especially in small apartments where space is of the upmost importance.

Great for Learners

Perfect for student-teacher sessions, the Twinova and Split Keyboard feature (function + G#2) allows you to split the piano into two, so two people can play parallel voices side by side. Feel free to change the point at which the keyboard is split. Take full advantage of the demo songs to develop your ear for perfect pitch. First, pick one you like, play a snippet, pause it, and find the key it starts on. Then, try to play the part you heard. You can also refine your perception for steady tempo with the built-in metronome.

So Much in One Digital Piano

Every touch of the keys makes this digital piano emanate with a full sound; with some sounds even mimicking an acoustic piano. You can use the USB port to hook up your computer or phone, edit tracks, and layer sounds on top of one another. With 16 different preset voices and 60 preset demo songs, you’ll have a nice array of sonic blends to choose from. You may record up to 5 different songs (metro + rec) right into the piano. There are also 3 pedals (Soft, Sostenuto, and Sustain) and a sliding key cover to protect your keys from dust and damage.
