To put it simply, a digital piano requires electricity and an acoustic piano does not. A digital piano is not better or worse than an acoustic piano; it just does things an acoustic piano cannot do. A digital piano can take up less space too. So if you live in a smaller space or apartment then the advantages of a digital piano may be practical. These day the digital piano options are many with a variety of finishes and designs. Many piano teachers have come to accept and play digital pianos as a genuine viable alternative to the traditional acoustic piano. In a perfect world I’d have one of each. 🙂 Some of the benefits of a digital piano are: no tuning required ever, the volume can be controlled, one can connect headphones for private listening that does not disturb others, more sounds other than piano can be available, one can record their performance or practice, and it is much easier to transport. If these benefits suit your needs than it’s worth checking out a digital piano. Obviously the quality will depend on the price and some of the top end Roland and Yamaha digital pianos are impressive. If however, you have the space which allows for a beautiful acoustic piano, and the sound of someone playing or practicing doesn’t over-ride someone else’s activity or entertainment, then by all means check out our massive range of acoustic pianos.
