Digital pianos are far more practical than traditional acoustic pianos for most players. Digital pianos are more affordable, aren't affected by seasonal changes or humidity and never require tuning. They fit more easily into a home or studio, are much lighter in weight and can be moved around without difficulty. And you can practice with headphones in complete privacy!
Don't be fooled by cheap "electronic keyboards". Their springy non-weighted key action doesn't deliver the tactile feedback necessary for expressive playing. Keyboards with fewer than the standard 88 piano keys leave the player with less tonal range. Poor quality electronics and small speakers produce a tinny, unsatisfying sound.
But with true digital pianos, recent advances in sound sampling and weighted keyboard actions have led to affordable instruments that are truly impressive in their sound and feel. Digital pianos now give you a playing and listening experience much closer to a traditional acoustic piano.
The Minor Chord is proud to be an authorized dealer for high quality Yamaha digital pianos. All of our digital pianos have a full 88-key piano keyboard and wieghted key action, proving a realistic keyboard feel and making it easier for a player to move back and forth between the digital piano and an acustic instrument.

With the rosewood or black look, the 3 pedals, and the sliding key cover, the Arius will also look great in your home. Plug in the headphones so only the player will hear for quiet practice. A solid Digital Piano offering from our friends at Yamaha.
