Digital Pianos and Electronic Keyboards

Digital pianos and electronic keyboards are definitely the instrument to add if your band still doesn't have one. In its lightweight and compact body, an electronic keyboard can bring a lot of textures and patterns to your performance.

Various piano sounds

Digital pianos are a great alternative to traditional pianos, especially for small band rooms and dormitories. Well-built digital pianos and keyboards can almost perfectly replicate piano sounds. With fully-weighted or semi-weighted keys, they can also provide a playing experience very close to the hammer system on an acoustic piano.

Digital pianos are not only good for compact performance, but they can also make a great practice instrument for piano learners. Thanks to the small size, students can even bring them home or out on a trip. Eastar EP-120 keyboard

Compared with acoustic pianos, keyboards enable more connectivity in addition to their built-in high-definition speakers, including Bluetooth speakers and headphones, 3.5mm earphones, and audio-jack speakers. The USB ports also allow for numerous external plugins. You can expand your audio matrix unlimitedly.

Upright Pianos

Pianos might not be an ordinary instrument on a rock stage, yet they can add an amazing addition to the show. Imagine a stage like Bohemian Rhapsody. Freddie Mercury's piano solo is a classic.

Using piano on a band stage is more than just for stage effect. The melody of a piano can enrich the texture of the whole rock show. However, not all stages have the space for a classic acoustic piano. That's where upright pianos are needed.

Upright pianos are much smaller than a classic piano, but the touch of keys and the quality of sound are not compromised. With proper recording accessories, an upright digital piano can produce unbelievably crispy sounds from its company body.

Electric Guitars and Pedals

We are not assuming that your band doesn't have guitars. But when you decide to upgrade your band, guitars and pedals seem to be a good breakthrough.

That's because many beginners could fall short when it comes to choosing the right guitar. Often the price of a guitar will compromise its functionalities, such as the class of body woods.

In other occasions, some beginners, without a lot of knowledge about guitars, can also choose less ideal guitars. For example, when someone prefers crispy sounds, his humbucker pickups will be a little disappointing.

Luckily, Donner Music's Back to School Sale provides a great chance for students to buy new electric guitars without breaking the bank. You can also find a range of pedals to expand the sound effect range and a more diverse show.
