5 Helpful Tips for Choosing Your Preferred Keyboard, Fairborn, Ohio

Walk into any quality musical instrument store, and you’re bound to see an overwhelming inventory of keyboards. Where do you even start in making the right choice for your tastes, needs, and budget? Luckily, Absolute Music in Fairborn, OH, is your trusted source for friendly and professional expertise on selecting your own personalized ivories to produce top-notch sounds.

If you’re in the market for a new keyboard, let your preferences by your guide. Are you in a band and are looking for the best melodic vibe to match up with other instruments? Or, are you a soloist singing and writing your own tunes as an accompanist? Here are a few helpful tips for choosing a keyboard for the best fit:

  • Sound Preference: The best way to determine the sound you’re wanting is to play the keyboard. Listen for tone, vibration and other reverberations to pinpoint your desired sounds. Ask one of the store’s staffers if there’s a demo you can listen to as well.
  • Size & Portability: Some keyboards have at least 25 keys while others can go up to 88. The more keys, the wider range of music you can play. Keyboards with 88 keys typically have range similar to traditional pianos. If you’re a student, your instructor may want to start you off with a smaller, more portable keyboard.
  • KeyboardBudget: Based on the instrument’s features and functions, the price can greatly vary. Take into consideration the size you desire, what musical tone you want to achieve, and whether you’ll need additional components, such as amplifiers.
  • Connectivity: Some of today’s keyboards have USB ports that allow you to connect to the Internet or your personal computer to transfer songs, do edits, and save them, as well as make downloads. Think about whether this connectivity feature is important for your musical work.
  • Screen Display: If you prefer a keyboard with a display screen that shows all the instrument’s functions and sounds, decide how big you want the visual to be. If you’re unsure, test out the screen to determine if the information being displayed is easy to read and decipher.

Crank up the music with your new keyboard! Call Absolute Music today at (937) 878-0123 with all your questions. Better yet, stop by the showroom to browse the store’s massive inventory. You can also check out the website for rental and purchase information.
