I'm just starting in the piano world and I have been reading about digital pianos since 1 week ago. Finally, I have found this great forum from where I think that I learning a lot.
I'm in Europe and I want to buy my own piano and my budget is tight. So, I'm thinking about buying a Thomann piano but apparently the people is scare about them because they are made in China. I couldn't find any descriptions of any model of a Thomann digital piano from someone who has tried it.
So, I'm looking for stories about these pianos, any model, opinions, etc. I learned that Thomann doesn't make these pianos , but I also learned that they are a really prestigious company in Europe, and probably they don't want to put their brand in any product.
I hope you can help me giving me different opinions about this. In particular, it would be great to hear from someone who has one of this pianos.
Thanks a lot in advance!
PD: I also saw the same thing with Gear4Music pianos...If there is someone who has one of these I would like to hear his/her experience too.
In my experience, with digital equipment, you usually get what you pay for. What is your budget and perhaps I can steer you in another direction?
Now I am thinking about 400 euros, which for me is a reaaaaally lot of money. But if people who has something of this price say that I will get something that will compromise my learning process...I will have to think about it.
What do you think?
You could of course keep an eye on the secondhand market and look out for P-140, P-85 from Yamaha or even the now redundant PX-120 from Casio.
If you want to buy brand new however, the Yamaha NP30 is probably your best option - at a compromise.
