Comments about Williams Symphony Console Digital Piano:
As retired professional piano player at nightclubs and piano bars I was just astounded at the quality and sound of the Williams Symphony Console Piano. Do I have a good ear?. I should hope to tell you I do. I taught myself how to play when I was 11 and play entirely by ear, from the classics to rock and roll. Should you buy this for your child to learn on, absolutely. You could spend thousands on a quality acoustic piano and not get better sound. The advantages of a digital piano are almost endless. Instead of weighing in at 300 to 600 lbls the Symphony only weighs 130. You won't need a piano tuner every year and you won't need to have the felts, springs and other straps replaced every five to ten years. You'll never need a piano mover. The list is long. You can even place a digital piano against an outside wall!
To get the most from your Symphony piano or any other digital piano you must learn how to set it up. I can't emphasize this enough. Mine arrived sounding like a Grand Piano and I've never liked them except for playing with an orchestra. It took me about 15 minutes to get it to sound like the new Spinet piano I once owned. Further adjustments made it sound just like the Upright I owned years ago. I retuned it to the Spinet and just love it. You can set the touch keys to suit your style of play. Since I am 73 now my touch has softened but the Symphony can be set to play a note regardless of how soft you hit the key. Nothing is more aggrevating than pushing a key so light that no sound comes out. The piano has a standard midi setup and a USB setup but to record my songs I simply connect the audio out of the piano to the input of my computers sound card. I then record them using a software recording program and save them as MP3's.
The piano has three foot pedals that operate exactly the way an acoustic piano does. They are solid and don't go dancing across the floor like loose pedals can. The weighted keys have a perfect feel, a lot better than some of the regular pianos I played at PianoBars. If it looks like a piano and it sounds like a piano then it is a piano. Make no mistake about it. This is not a toy, it is a fine musical instrument for yourself or your child.
When comparing digital pianos you can't line up a few different makes and play a few chords on each to determine which is best. Each and every one has to be Setup to your style of play and the type of piano you want it to mimic. Upright pianos have the deepest and fullest sound because of their huge, heavy wood sound boards. Spinets are next with a slightly smaller sound board. Grands and Baby Grands have a sound of their own since the sound boards are thinner and placed horizontally. The Williams Symphony reproduces all of them perfectly.
Don't look at your digital piano as a temporary measure. The digital piano is now used in most orchestras and bands and soon it will replace the pianos in the home.
One added note: The music stand on the top of the piano may be adjusted to any angle you wish. Each hinge has a bracket that pulls down to the desired angle. Just feel the top of the hinge and pull it down.
You can't beat this piano even if you spend thousands of dollars. My Spinet sounded great but it cost me four grand. I purchased this to replace a $5,000.00 keyboard by Technics that has seen better days.
Cons: The only thing I feel is wrong is that during Setup if you don't respond quickly enough the piano returns to piano mode and you have to re-enter Setup. It should remain in setup mode until your ready to return.
My other complaint is that there is no explanation to the numbers while using Setup. For example it doesn't tell you that the higher numbers give you the fullest sound (upright piano) and that lower numbers give you brighter sounds (Baby Grand - Honky Tonk) during the Brightness Setup. A person must experiment to find this out.
You may want to download the instructions on how to put it together. It comes with instructions on how to operate the piano but not how to put it together. It is quite simple so you may not even need the book.
If you do you can find it a williamspiano.com
Thank you Williams Piano for a fantastic piano.

I purchased this as a gift for my wife, and I was initially leary of purchasing such a high end item online but this little piano looks great and sounds better. This is a wonderful in home piano, and I'm thinking about having the church buy one as well. Music 123 got it here in a speedy fashion and in good shape. I had trouble tracking it during shipping, but it arrived fast enough (5 days) that I didn't need to worry.
