Acoustic vs Digital Pianos

Acoustic Pianos are heavier, more robust and sturdier than electronic models. They are usually significant investments that are passed down through a family. Many people believe that the full, rich sound and tactile, expressive feel of a traditional piano can never be replicated in any digital model.

However, many people do see the benefits of Digital models. Because Digital Pianos and Keyboards rely on sampling, they can produce a range of different instrument sounds. For example, musicians can choose from flutes, harpsichords, strings and percussion, sounds making a digital piano or keyboard very adaptable.

A Digital Piano offers a weighted key action to mimic the feel of an acoustic instrument. Often the keys of the lower notes have a heavier touch, while the higher ones are lighter.

There are a number of advantages to playing a Digital Piano or keyboard as opposed to an Acoustic version. They can have built-in rhythm capabilities to accompany players. In addition, because a digital piano is without strings, they never need to be tuned, saving their owners time and money.

A Digital Piano or Keyboard also enables their users to take advantage of Musical Instrument Digital Interface (MIDI), which means they can communicate, control and synchronise with other electronic musical instruments, computers and equipment.

A Digital Pianos can be relatively portable, as they are smaller and lighter than the traditional alternative and can often be partially dismantled for the purposes of transportation. Users can also play silently by plugging headphones into the instruments.
