first of all, I have not touched a keyboard/piano in my life before.
I am planning to pick it up as soon as next week. Normally if I knew that I'd stick with this new hobby, I would not limit myself on budget this much. I just don't want to but something really expensive and try to ebay it one week after.
I did some reading, and I am down to two, a Yamaha Digital Piano or a Yamaha keyboard. These are the cheapest models that I can get with "touch sensitivity" although both lack any hammer action or weighted keys.
I guess my question is: Is there any advantage of buying a digital piano when the keyboard offers a bunch more functions (and buttons!) From my point of view, please do correct me if I am wrong
- They are both 61 keys
- They are both touch sensitive (speed sensitive?)
- They lack weighted keys
- They use the same recorded concert piano to produce a grand piano sound
Can anyone point at what I'm missing here? I mean is there any reason to buy a "digital piano" over keyboard?
