Most of the major manufactures for digital keyboards and pianos have a website online. Most of the keyboard manufacturers also allow you to buy the keyboard online.
Get Better Price – Only Online Offers
Sometimes, there are online only offers that offer you a better price and quote than the price that can be found in physical stores.
This is usually because they would like people to buy directly on online stores and reduce their overheads. Websites for pianos and digital keyboards can give you a user manual, product demonstrations and used and new prices for various models.
Take Your Time
One of the big advantages of browsing online for a digital piano is that you can go through the complete details and user manual at your own time and pace.
You do not have to feel in any sort of rush as you might if you are at a physical store and asking the salesperson questions. You can read up on a lot of information about a particular piano or a digital keyboard and go to a physical store much better informed.
A huge choice and lots of information
Browsing the websites for additional keyboard can greatly help you narrow down the models that you are seeking to buy by viewing the features available on each. This will help you reduce the time that you spend in a physical store.
You can go to a physical store with the exact requirement and the model that you want in mind. Being more informed will help you deal with the salesperson better and will also help you avoid a bad deal.
Sometimes the sales people are not completely aware of all the features of all the models as well. This will give you advantage when you have read up and shortlisted keyboard models online.
Trial And Refund Offer
Some websites will also offer you support and help on the phone.
However, as we have mentioned before, you should almost always never buy a piano or the digital keyboard without having tried it and played it 1st. You can only do this with a physical store.
Which is why most of the websites trying to sell you a keyboard online, will always offer a return window for the product, with a ‘no questions asked’ refund policy.
In fact you will have noticed that this policy applies to all kinds of products being sold online, including stuff on Amazon. If there was no return policy, people would not feel so inclined to buy online. After all, they can only see the physical product after the order.
Disadvantages Of Buying A Piano Keyboard Online
Well, it’s kind of obvious, isn’t it… You cannot play the damn things yourself and not really know how it feels or sounds before you receive. A return policy isn’t convenient when you are ordering a piano. It is a bulky instrument.
But it works for most part. There is bound to be an online demonstration for the product and people usually have a fair idea of what they are getting. They can go through the scores of reviews online. And in case of digital keyboards or pianos it’s all fairly consistent. So the odds of getting a surprise when you receive what you ordered are slim.
A dealer can offer you better product support, answer questions, offer you a store warranty and provide you with other services such as annual or semiannual maintenance and tuning of your piano.
Besides, you may find it easier to bring your instrument back for repairs of problems when you buy from a close by piano or keyboard store.
