Winchester WDP60 Review

The keys are a little heavy on the initial push down

 

Sounds purer/cleaner than most digital pianos

 

Sound is forced and jumps out at you (listen to demo songs and you will here it)

 

Sounds – can’t combine, no variations???

 

Vibraphone – not realistic, buzzing sounds on notes. Bottom 2 octaves sound poor – strange sounds/overtones

 

Organ – OK

 

Strings – nothing special

 

Brass – nothing like it! Boomy and completely unrealistic

 

Percussion – all the sounds covered, but no way of knowing which sound is which

 

GM voice – bad saxophone

 

Annoying 2 track recorder. Can’t get 2 to work. Light comes on and off – very bad.

 

   

 

Good Points

 

Sliding key cover

 

Long music desk

 

Grand piano has variations, i.e. harpsichord. Each sound has many variations

 

Metronome – OK

 

3 pedals

 

Soft pedal is a very good response

 

Repetition is similar to Roland and Yamaha but not as consistent

 

Too much touch sensitivity. Loud to soft – BUT – notes tend to stand out too much if played on the heavy side. Accented etc.

 

Key noise fairly low when sound is turned off

 

Bad Points

 

Nice to have these extra sounds, but could be a lot better

 

Touch weight (Funny. Doesn’t work well)

 

Reverb comes on automatically (not good)

 

Last octave is a little flat

 

Reliability. 2 brand new Winchester pianos were tested and both had problems: Pedals working intermittently, and no sound on piano when turned on.

  

Value for money: 5/10

 

Total score (out of 100): 57
