USED Digital Pianos Under $1000 - 2022 WARNING & REPORT

Used Digital Pianos Under $1000 - Report

UPDATED REPORT - March 1, 2022 - USED Digital Pianos Under $1000
by Casio, Korg, Roland, Yamaha, Kawai, Kurzweil, Suzuki, and MORE. BE CAREFUL! Are you looking for a good USED digital piano under $1000, under $900, under $800, under $700, under $600, under $500, under $400, or under $300? Well it seems that many people try to do that and search for a good deal on a digital piano that would be used and in good condition. 

In past years buying a used digital piano would have a good idea because new ones cost so much money and people would want to one in a much lower price range under $1000 and generally speaking the only good way to possibly get a low price on a higher quality digital piano was to buy a used one. 

People selling their used digital pianos have normally owned them for 5, 10, 15, or 20 years or more so the large majority of used digital pianos out there are somewhat old and antiquated when it comes to digital piano technology and an authentic piano playing experience. But people still want a good deal, especially if they need to keep the price low. 

Hopefully you might find that proverbial "super hot deal" on a used digital piano from someone selling it who was just practically giving it away because their kids stopped playing it, or the family lost interest, or the seller needed the money and was willing to take a very low price, and that people was a relatively new one.

But in today's new digital piano market, buying a used digital piano generally makes little sense because the new digital pianos that are out today are in many cases 2 to 3 times as good as the digital pianos that were out just 5 -7 years ago and they are either the same price or less money than their older counterparts. This is true for a lot of technology driven consumer products including TV's, computers, cell phones, etc. Even the physical key actions are improved over the years in digital pianos which all adds up to that you'll likely get a much more authentic piano playing experience on a new one as opposed to an older one. 

This does not mean you cannot be happy with an older used digital piano? Because when it comes to older technology, you may be a person who is easily satisfied and has low expectations when it comes to piano playing for yourself or your children. That attitude sometimes from your lack of knowledge as to what a real piano is supposed to play like? So then you buy a "used one" at a lower price because, to you, it looks like a piano and sounds like a piano, so therefore it must be good.

But you might be surprised to learn that later on you actually bought  something for you or your children that does not play at all like a real piano and in fact it may create some bad playing habits because of the way that it is built. Even top name brands have made some "clunkers" in the past so just because it has a good brand name does not necessarily mean that the particular model that you bought is good.   

You have to be careful out there and just because it is a low price or looks to physically be in good shape does not mean it's a good investment as a piano. Playing good music is all about the tonal expression you get out of the piano, the way the keys move up & down and how they triggers the sound of the piano, and basically overall whether or not the digital piano sounds and feels artificial as many older used pianos do? 

Plus, you do not know when that used piano will have a repair problem and if it does it could be very costly to repair and there may not be any parts available for that older model...and then what do you do? That would be a bad situation to get yourself into.

The other considerations are whether the digital piano you buy can get real close to replicating an actual acoustic piano playing experience, which is what most people want. It's all about being able to play music and have it come out as real as possible and some (but not all) digital pianos (especially the off-brands) even from just 5 years ago were noticeably artificial and played more like a toy as compared to many new digital pianos today.

So do yourself a favor...spend a bit more money and invest in the newer digital piano technology for a better, more realistic piano playing experience...you'll be glad you did!

PS...in some cases you don't have to spend more money for a good new digital piano because some of the older used ones are priced even higher than the better new digital pianos.
