Roland LX-10F

I have shopped around and compared prices for digital upright home pianos, and have provided links for "more info and to purchase today" for each product. These product links are for the best prices (new) that I have found, and often include free shipping!

Here are my Top Picks:

Top-of-the-Line Models (Over $2,000):

Models with Some "Bells and Whistles" ($1,000 – $2,000):

Pretty Basic Models (Under $1,000):


Top-of-the-Line Models (Over $2,000):

These digital piano models cost more money.  You will usually get more sophistication in the appearance and sound quality, and many more features than more basic models.  These offer more memory and sophistication in recording capabilities and lots more sounds –  fun, but not necessarily necessary!

Roland LX-10F SuperNATURAL Digital Piano – Black

Roland LX-10F

Super sophisticated "SuperNATURAL" technology is super fantastic to play!

The keys are very responsive to touch and feel like wood or ivory – not plastic.

The feature that sets this digital upright piano apart from others, is that this model makes use of vertical space – same as an acoustic upright piano – for speakers to produce sound that is more 3-D than just side speakers.  

Looks gorgeous, sounds gorgeous, feels gorgeous!

Pretty Basic Models (Under $1,000):

These Digital Pianos look nice, and are good, basic home pianos.  They don't have as many tones – just a few basic pianos, electric pianos, strings, flutes/woodwinds, brass, percussion and very few special effects (like telephones and helicopters!).  Roland is still my favorite brand because of the quality of the hammer action and I personally like their sounds.  Casio is certainly a reputable brand, however, and stays competitive in the value-priced market.
