3 Keyboards to Choose From: DGX-500 or P70 or S80
(Albuquerque, NM, USA)
We are looking to buy an 88-key, weighted action keyboard for our daughter to learn on, and for my wife to play using her very mid-level beginner skills. And, who knows? Maybe I will try to learn also. Our daugther's piano teacher says we need an 88-key, weighted action keyboard, or a regular piano, and our research tells me Yamaha is the way to go.
Our local Craigslist has 2 Yamahas for sale, and of course, both ads say the keyboards have been used veyr little and are in excellent condition. They are:
1) S80: keyboard and soft case only: $375
2) DGZ-500: keyboard, stand (it looks to be one piece), and bench: $400
The 3rd keyboard is in a local music store:
3) P70: keyboard only: $350
Any thoughts as to which one to buy if they all play and are in similar condition?
We are leaning towards the DGX-500 because it looks the nicest and has the "built-in" stand, plus a bench. But, if either of the other 2 keyboards have features or specs that make a huge difference we'll go with oen of them.
Thanks for getting back to us.
