Musical Keyboard

Musical Keyboards Are Perhaps The Best Way To Learn Music.

Between seeing all of the notes laid out in front of you and the choices of hearing different synthesized instruments, you basically are granted total access to create just about any sound you like.  Any good recording studio will have a musical keyboard ready to go, and even live bands will tug them around from show to show.  Why?  Because they're so versatile.

But you already know this, which is why you're looking to buy one of your own.  There's just one problem: with so many out there, where on earth do you start?  Here are a few tips.

Start with a Price in Mind

They say that every man has his price, so be one of those men (or women) and set your budget ahead of time.  If you want a larger, more capable keyboard, save up your money for a longer period of time.  If you simply want a keyboard that can spit out sounds on command, you can go cheaper.  A great place to start is somewhere like this simple Casio mini keyboard, a mere $50 or so, depending on shipping.  If your budget is so limited that you're ecstatic at the thought of having a keyboard for $50, you're on the right track.  If you take one look at that keyboard and think "Hmm - that's not enough," then you've got some more work to do.  Start with the price in mind and everything will flow from there.

Head to a Music Hub or Marketplace

Sites like Andy's Music Online are great for browsing.  You don't have to be limited to one keyboard product - instead, you can look at a few and try to examine exactly what features make each keyboard different.  As you do a little research, you'll find that some features will matter to you more than others - for example, if you don't have headphones, you'll probably want to find a keyboard with headphones included.

Another great site is eBay, which is always an option if you're looking for a cheap product of just about any sort.  Musical keyboards can be found on discount because they're often used or sold at wholesale prices.
