I downloaded and read your guide…priceless information…thank you
Great buyer’s guide you wrote. Thank you for the article.
Dear Graham ,
I would really like to Thank you for taking the time , effort and professionalism out to help us. Your book enormously helped me to decide which piano to buy. actually I am almost buying 3 digital pianos from japan at the same time, so studding is a must here.
Thank you for producing your wonderful booklet.
Received the guide. Really great “Does what it says on the label!” Will certainly help with my choice.
It’s very pleasing to obtain such a comprehensive guide for Free – many thanks.
Thank you for producing and publishing such a useful guide! Whenever I spend a significant amount of money on something, I like to make a shortlist on the basis of objective criteria, and then make the final decision on what “feels” right. You have saved me hours of research! I really like the criteria that you use to compare different keyboards so your list of the best digital pianos is now my shortlist!
Thank you so much for your excellent e-book. It is very generous of you to offer your knowledge and experience in this way.
Hi. Thanks very much for your book. I am in the process of deciding whether I wish to learn to play the piano or not. Having never played an instrument in my life, and having no knowledge of pianos, I have found your book very informative and useful.
I found your article very helpful in layman’s terms.
Dear Mr. Howard:
I just finished reading “how to buy a digital piano” and I wanted to thank you for your expertise
and knowledge. I printed a copy so I can relate all that information to my students.
Thanks again for your willingness to share.

Thanks for your email – I am still reading through your Guide with much interest and the tips are really useful. It’s very difficult for a novice to understand what’s involved in selecting the right piano / keyboard without something like this to point you in the right direction. Thanks for your help so far……
Best wishes ………….Chris
Graham, thank you so much for your research and help! I can’ t believe how much time you devote helping people. God bless you for that.
My names Tremaine and i have just read your free book that you have placed on your website.
I found that the most useful bit of information i have ever read before putting a purchase
in motion! I have to say thank you so much and can not believe i found this for free.
Reading this has made my decision much more defined and overall easier!
You book is rather amazing, as is your whole set up. I’m very impressed!
Many thanks again for your help & advice (all free, fabulous; many would charge for a book like yours), & I will certainly contact you again when & if we have more questions.
Best wishes from sunny Austria!
I could not find your book earlier, however, with the link in this feedback mail of yours, I was able to click on and get your book.
It really was very lucid, and informative. You have explained all the concepts very nicely.
I am from India, and was looking for an appropriate Digital-Piano for my son who turns 12 next month-end. He has had a basic Casio keyboard for the last 2 years, and has picked up fairly well. He has had no teacher whatsoever, but with the Apple iPad2 App, he has picked up English songs, especially into Classical Music – Mozart, Bach, Beethoven and other composer who feature in the iPad2 App, so he can play ‘Fur Elise’, ‘Moonlight Sonata’, etc. almost perfectly, two-handed. To encourage his interest, skill and passion, we were looking to upgrade on a budget, and I was online a lot looking for the perfect fit.
While I did learn a lot online (i cant play at all), it was your short book that really laid it out for us nicely, explaining the meanings of various features nicely.
I have finally made the decision and just bought the ‘Yamaha DGX 640W’ today. My son is thrilled, and though it is costly, we are happy with it.
Just wanted to let you know from India that I appreciate your efforts.
All the Best…you’re doing a Great job.
Regards, Shyam. Chennai, India.
Thank you so much for the book. I found it useful and straight forward. It is great to have the information.
Thank you for your very informative book. It was quite helpful in deciding which piano to buy, and why. Keep up the good work.

Dear Graham, found your book very useful. You explained some terms that were Greek to me before.
I will read it more in depth and then start looking for the piano I need. I especially was
grateful for your list of things I can do with your book and things I should not because I
had wondered about that. It is such a great service for you to let us in on all the inside
workings of the digital piano world. I wish you much success and will ask if I have a
question later on.
Thank you, Sharon
It is such a great service for you to let us in on all the inside
workings of the digital piano world
Thanks for the buying guide. It is very informative and answered several questions I had.
Thank you for the download. It demonstrated how difficult it is to find a digital piano that in any way resembles a good acoustic piano.
My father worked in a piano factory around 1922 where he learnt french polishing which became his trade. He enjoyed playing the piano – by ear- and the piano accordion.His father also played – by ear- quite well. My father took an interest in pianolas. He rebuilt one and we kept it all his life.
I started to learn the piano at seven and finally got grade five as an adult. I bought a Technics digital piano nearly twenty years ago from a lady who wanted the room as her son had lost interest in learning to play. The Technics lasted well until a note failed – was found to have dust in the contact – and then failed again. The dog knocked a lamp on to the stand and it is now taped up! I bought a Casio Previa 100 secondhand – it clatters but is fun to play. I use the digital pianos to practise the bass line for gents in the Angmering Chorale. My wife’s 21st birthday present was a piano – still in tune – but too loud for the small room – our “music” room. I subscribe to the Pianist magazine with its cd demonstrating pieces. I “rescue” piano sheet music from car boot sales!
The information contained within your book has been “instrumental” in helping us short list a number of digital piano’s which we will discuss further in the coming days. At this point we may contact you, give you our options and reasons and get your feedback.
In the meantime thank you for your help.
I would like to thank you for the awesome piano guide. It was very useful in clearing some of the questions I had in my mind.
I just downloaded your book, and I’d like to thank you, and all the people who have contributed to its publication.
The wealth of information available has been REALLY helpful for me in the process of deciding to buy a new keyboard.
Graham, I’m a bit of a dinosaur when it comes to communicating via web alternatives like twitter and facebook.
Anyway I found the advice in your book very helpful in choosing a suitable digital piano for someone who has
had a lifelong enjoyment of piano music and has recently decided, with the encouragement of a friend, to
learn to play this instrument.
Thanks you very much for your excellent book and advice
Your book was most useful and I now know a lot about the jargon that the shop salesmen use
Not having a musical background , your book was immensely enlightening
Thankyou for the downloaded book.
It was very informative and interesting.
I found your e-book to be very useful. You really know pianos inside and out!
Thanks Graham. Your book is very helpful. Never though it can be for free. it is great
Thanks for the copy of your guide; it was a good read and well informed. I’m setting out on a voyage of discovery, both with learning the piano and learning music itself, aged 44! I bought a Yamaha PSR-233 after Christmas and have been receiving lessons since. I have to say I’m hooked; it is a real thrill when one starts making music that is both familiar and pleasant to listen too.
I found your book extremely helpful and have printed ALL 71 pages!
Graham, Being a novice I found your advice (7 things…) invaluable
I finally bought a Korg SP170S. I like the way it
feels and the sound is OK too (even better with the sustain pedal).
I don’t have to drive the neighbours crazy either since I can just
put on the headphones. I might upgrade in a couple of years if I
stick with it.
Thanks so much for your recommendations: you saved me a great deal
of time and effort.
Thanks so much for the book (so helpful! I am totally new to the digital piano world, and your book is like a crash course in it…wow!),
Thanks for the booklet–it’s so valuable to me that it’s hard to believe it was free!
Thanks you so much for the book. It is great. I even recommended to my friends.
I did indeed find some useful tips in your book. Isn’t it amazing that I had to go all the way from Newcastle (Australia) to London to find out how to really tell the good oil from the bull when investigating electric pianos.
I am a casual pianist / piano tuner who has rarely been happy with electric pianos, and now I am starting to understand why (thanks to you.)
May your tribe increase.
