” The two most important things you need from a digital piano when you’re learning is a realistic touch and an authentic piano tone. It must feel close to the weight and response of a real piano and have a minimum of 4 dynamic levels. Size, weight, and ‘bells and whistles’ shouldn’t be a deciding factor in your purchase “, Graham Howard, Piano Advisor

“Kurzweil’s founder, Ray Kurzweil, was the first to realistically emulate the sound of a grand piano in an electronic instrument. It was a request from Stevie Wonder that challenged Kurzweil and his team of engineers… And thank goodness for the challenge… because of that, today we have such wonderful sounding digital pianos!”,

Questions and Comments
“I’m crazy about Kurzweil”
Thanks for all the advice and emails.
However, I live in Spain and I’m a synth freak! (well a fan of synths anyway)
I must tell you though that YOUR ADVICE was taken by one of my students. (I’m an English Teacher)
She bought a Yamaha electric piano because of what you had written.
However, if I may, I’d like to also pass on some info to you which you might find interesting (or perhaps not!) I’ll let you decide on that one! No obligations though!
As I’m a synth freak, I’m crazy about Kurzweil. You mentioned the old Kurzweil piano and that you preferred the Yamaha, so my student bought the Yamaha. Remember, we are talking about Madrid, Spain etc….
However, Kurzweil have bought out a new electric piano, and this one is based on the PC3 Synth Engine!
Obviously this new one is miles better than the old one. I was trying to convince my student to try out the new Kurzweil, but it wasn’t in the local area, so she couldn’t. So I would like to suggest, again (take it or leave it), trying the new Kurzweil based on PC3 technology!
I think you will notice the difference etc… I’m trusting in Kurzweil’s reputation here as a Piano maker and as an excellent Synth technologist although I haven’t had a chance to play one yet!
Having tried many digital pianos, the Kurzweil ka90 is simply the best action (the keys bounce back in a beautiful active but smooth way, giving a realistic grand piano feel and sound. Superb tonal sounds through the keyboard, with great resonance, a joy to listen to. I have never experienced on a digital piano, having tried pianos which are very expensive (Yamaha, kawai, korg etc).
The price I paid was around £440 which is a basement price, (tried other makes for £1500 with inferior actions and muted sounds). Remarkable and makes playing a joy. It reminds me of playing a Bechstein piano. Thanks to Kurzweil. By the way, I hope this may be of use to someone looking for a digital piano, best wishes from Jon.
Kurzweil employed Stevie Wonder as music adviser to help Kurzweil engineers design sounds for their pianos and keyboards. The result is a full-bodied, resonant, natural piano sound that’s been regarded as one of the best for over 30 years.
Stevie Wonder has been involved with the design of sounds from 1980 to the current day.
These sounds are heard today when listening to Stevie Wonder, Elton John, David Bowie, Paul Mcartney, Billy Joel, David Rosenthal, Rubern Valtierra, Pink Floyd, Alecia Keys, Luther Vandross, Depeche Mode, Peter Gabriel and many more famous artists.
