Top 5 musical keyboards under 10,000

“ Life is like a musical keyboard: the white keys show happiness and the black keys show sadness. But as you go through life’s journey both keys together create sweet music.” This is indeed a beautiful metaphor between life and piano. There is another metaphor too which goes as “ life is just like a piano: what you get out of it depends on how you play it.” These illustrate our beauty of music and its impact on our lives.

This is the best among all the mini keyboards made. It has its charm which is visible in its sound. This is one of the few keyboards that have a long list of pros. But before that let’s see its technicalities.

Tech Specs:

  • Keyboard 32 mini-size keys
  • Maximum Polyphony 8
  • Tones 100 built-in tones
  • Rhythms/Patterns 50 built-in patterns
  • Built-in Songs 10 (Song Bank)
  • Lesson Function Melody on/off (Lesson part: Melody part)
  • Other Functions Piano tone/organ tone one-touch button
  • 5 drum pads
  • Tuning Control A4 = approximately 440 Hz ± 99 cents
  • Display Screen LCD
  • Speakers 8cm x 2
  • Amp Output 0.5W+0.5W
  • Input/Output Terminals Headphones/output (3.5mm mini stereo jack)
  • External power (9.5V DC)
  • Power Requirements Batteries: AA-sizex6/Optional AC adaptor: AD-E95100L
  • Dimensions (W x D x H) 446 x 208 x 51mm
    * Excluding music stand, and other projections
    Weight 1.0kg (Excluding batteries)

Pros:

  1. 32 mini-size keys, lightweight and compact, and the ability to be battery powered make this a fun little keyboard to take anywhere and be played by anyone.
  2. 100 built-in instrument tones, 50 built-in rhythms, and 10 built-in songs give ample opportunity for exploration, expression, and creativity for even the earliest beginners. Adults love the high-quality, retro-inspired sounds and instruments too, finding fun effects and sounds with every new keypress.
  3. Drum keys are fun and interactive for kids, and they can access drums and percussion effects without navigating a menu, making it simple for even small children to start making music.
  4. 8 levels of polyphony aren’t much, excluding many complex, overlapping sounds, but it’s still more than many small keyboards offer, and children are unlikely to noticeably exceed the limit.
  5. Lesson functions use the LCD screen to provide simple piano instruction while following along with the onboard song library. It’s a fun way to practice the songs and start learning piano technique.
  6. The keyboard shuts itself off after only about 4 minutes without a key being pressed. This may seem like a short time, but in this keyboard, it’s a great feature. Not only does it conserve batteries and energy, but it’s consistent with younger attention spans and makes it easy to set aside and forget.

Cons:

  1. No EQ or volume control for the drum effects independent from the key sounds. The drums are loud, and it would be nice to be able to independently control the drum volume, especially when kids are mashing on the buttons.
