Not a bad starter keyboard, but be advised that it has only 32 note polyphony - only 32 notes can play simultaneously. For a beginner this may be acceptable, but once you start to layer different voices and using an optional pedal you will suffer severe note drop-off. Note: there’s no Line Out connection.the blue angel wrote:i was offered one for 350 is this a good price good piano
Today's norm tends to be a minimum of 64 note polyphony, with even many reasonably priced digital pianos offering 128 note.
If it were me and on a budget, I would wait longer, and save a little more. Then check out the likes of the Yamaha P-85 or Casio Privia PX-130, and remember - don't buy without trying first!
It's the newer model of the P70. I bought a P85 about 6 months ago and have had no problems so far. I have played (but not owned) a P70 before and did not think it was that great at the time however I believe Yamaha have done a better job overall with the P85.
You can also get the optional L-70 or L-70S keyboard stand to prop up the 28lb P70 or P70S.
The heart of the Yamaha P70 is the piano sounds—and they are good. Yamaha used dynamic stereo sampling to achieve this by recording a real Yamaha concert grand at three different dynamic levels: soft, medium, and hard playing styles while capturing the stereo ambience
