Review of Yamaha PSR 340 by Nar2

An Easy Electronic Keyboard With An E for Excellence!
Review of Yamaha PSR-E323 by Nar2

Advantages: Better features than base E313; lovely sounds and rhythms, MIDI, 32 note polyphony, better design
Disadvantages: Awful music stand, you may need to buy adaptor separately, still uses A to Z function buttons.

When it came to buying a replacement home keyboard for my computer in 2010 I was at a cross roads to consider whether it would be a £70 to £100 "hand bag sized," MIDI keyboard with a couple of keys from a piano to input notes on my Sibelius and Garageband ... Read review

A disappointment for the CTKs
Review of Casio CTK-496 Portable Keyboard 61 Full Size Keys by G-smith

Advantages: weighted keys, loud, can be powered by batteries
Disadvantages: Awful sound quality, terrible value for money

The Casio CTK-496 is perhaps the most basic of the CTK range from Casio. I have two other keyboards from this range that fail to disappoint, however this CTK-496 is awful, especially considering the price. There are some good things about this produc ... Read review

Advantages: Light, good for beginners
Disadvantages: Heavy keys, not touch sensitivity for keys.

Moog Etherwave Theremin - An Instrument, Not A Toy
Review of Moog Etherwave Theremin In Standard Ash Cabinet by Ouroborussian

Advantages: Easy to pick up, gorgeous appearance, solid build, able to play microtonal pieces, great sound.
Disadvantages: Not having to build it yourself means you miss out on knowing the exact workings. High price.

The Theremin The Theremin was invented by Leon Theremin, and is played by moving your hands in the air, relative to two antennae - one controls pitch, the other volume. At its initial showcases, anecdotal evidence tells of people fainting because ... Read review

This is something my late uncle would have loved (or might even have had! as his field of Physics study was to do with sound . . . and I have heard the terms Moog and Theremin pass his lips in the past) . . . You have brought back bittersweet memories . . . ♥ jesi ♥ by jesi

Advantages: Lots of tunes, keys and tones. Excellent sound effects. Looks very nice and strongly built.
Disadvantages: Too advanced and big for young children (below 8 years)

I bought this for my little brother, to practice at home what he learnt at school. I must say, I was quite amazed at how much this keyboard can do. With this keyboard, my brother can play what he's learnt and he can also learn how to play new tunes from i ... Read review
