“I’m looking for a digital baby grand piano”
I came across your website and am in the “what do I buy” situation. My wife is keen to start to learn to play the piano and I want to buy her one that will cover everything she is likely to need.
She is keen to learn in the modern, contemporary classic side similar music like Ludovico einaudi or Peter Sandberg.
Although she is a beginner, I want to buy a piano that will take her right through beginner, intermediate levels and maybe professional if she enjoys it.
She doesn’t want the issues of having to get a piano tuned so we have been looking at digital pianos with weighted 88 keys etc.
I have been looking at a gear4music GDP 400, however I realise a lot of the cost for that is in the frame and not the electronics and sound quality side. I don’t like the idea of a piano up against a wall and want it to be part of the room rather than tucked away, hence baby grand style but I am worried about quality and realism of playing the piano.
You talk about Yamaha being the best in terms of sound as the digital sound and feeling is based on their acoustic pianos but I don’t really know enough to make a decision on which one is best. The budget is up to about £1700.
Can you give any advice on this subject please?
Reply/ Hi Robert
The GDP400 certainly looks very nice, but I don’t
recommend it for your wife to learn to play on.
The key touch is quite poor. The resistance is
too lightweight and the keys are noisy and wobbly.
To get anything good in a digital baby grand style
you would need to be looking in the £3000 and
upwards price range.
The Broadway BG2 is a lovely piano.

It’s also available on rent to buy, where all your rental
payments go towards the price if you buy within
the first 12 months.

The Broadway BG2 has wooden keys, which gives
it the correct resistance and a firmer touch that
brings it very close to the feel of a real grand piano.
The Broadway also has a full, warm and resonant tone.
This is due to the original sound sampling, its excellent
speaker system, and large speaker size and wattage output.
You’d think it was a real grand piano if you didn’t know.
The BG2 is recommended for up to grade 8 level.
I realise this is way over your intended budget, so
I also recommend looking at the Kurzweil MPG100
We also have an ex-display Kurzweil MPG100.
