View Full Version : What keyboard should a newbie get?
08.12.03, 12:14 PM
Being a guitarman all my life, I have no idea what keyboard should I get. I'm just a starting keyboardist but I know that the best keyboards are either Korg or Roland. So I was wondering what keyboard (brand and/or model) would be a good starting keyboard? I have little experience with playing so I have no idea which would be "sulit."

Kahit anong mura kapatid. Wag lang yung mumurahin na miles keyboard, yung about 1k. Trust me on this, hindi naman sa sinisiraan ko yung product or whatever, pero kung bibili ka, you'll understand what I mean.
Maganda kung ang bibilhin mo is yung Yamaha or kaya Casio.
btw, maybe other bponliners can help you get a better keyboard. let's wait nalang for their replies.

I think yung Yupangco (sa Buendia Ave., Makati) ay may seasonwide sale on musical instruments that will run until the end of December (acc. to the poster that I see every time I pass by Yupangco :) ). Normally, may mga magagandang keyboards na pang-starters from 20-30k, pero malay mo, baka makatyempo ka ng good buys doon :)

eduserusan: Thanks! Napag-isipan ko naman na hindi miles e. haha Pero any model would do? What if I want to record midis straight to the computer? May alam po ba kayo sa mga ganun? Salamat uli!
titopao: Salamat din! Mapuntahan nga yan. Nakakaintriga. Sana nga may good deal. Pero ok lang po rin ba kung 2nd-hand?
Once again, thank you mga sir. :)

Depende sa keyboard. I say "depende" for various reasons:
* Kung hindi maingat ang dating may-ari ng keyboard, the keys may be defective (hindi na effectively touch-sensitive, di tumutunog ang keys) and no amount of repair will undo the damage---and the original owner's inefficiency as a keyboardist. Kung sinira ng may-ari ang keyboard dahil sa maling technique ng pagtugtog---typically, yung kulang na lang ay ihampas ang uong braso sa keyboard kapag tumugtog---alalahanin mong ikaw ang magmamana ng bunga ng kanyang kapabayaan LOL
* Kung tunog-lata ang keyboard na bibilhin mo---usually, sa cheapo brands---it wouldn't matter if it's brand new or second-hand. Pangit pa rin ang tunog nya kahit bagong labas sa factory. (Why do you think the established brands such as Yamaha, Korg and Roland have such established names? ;) )You might as well invest in a second-hand (but well-maintained) Yamaha PSR (na touch-responsive at may sustain pedal jack socket) rather than buy one of those cheap, Made in China keyboards that are sold at malls and whose salesmen's knowledge of music is, at best, abysmal except for their ability to read through their manufacturer's kodigo :P
Maraming factors pa na pwedeng tingnan. I suggest that you personally try out a keyboard if it's second hand, don't just blindly pay for it without giving it a try :)

titopao: Maraming salami! haha tama. Ako pa magmana ng kapabayaan nila. Sige, I shall get back on this after my adventure sa Yupangco. God bless sir.:)
