    Alesis Recital 88-Key Beginner Digital Piano with Full-Size Semi-Weighted Keys and Power Supply

    • Clear sound.
    • so I can't comment on how it holds up over time, but the sound is pretty good.
    • Excellent sound, touch, and sensitivity!
    • Once you do get used to it, it's far easier to play music that has a great sound, because you can intuitively change the loudness
    • The keys are only "semi-weighted" but they feel similar to piano keys, with the important feature that the harder you press them, the louder the sound.
    • It's a good quality keyboard and the sound is amazing although I don't have and other equipment to compare it to
    • Although the sound is decent, I am sure it is not as good as Yamaha
    • I purchased this as a starter piano because of the price point hoping that it would deliver adequate sound
    • I didn't expect great sound from the lowest priced 88-key digitals anyway.
    • You cannot learn to make the sound quiet or loud, no technique can really be produced, so I would say save your money and get a used piano
    • Hitting the keys harder produces louder sound, and the sound is even across the 88 keys.
    • , just don't expect a super high-quality or rich sound
    • Piano sound is the best sound on the instrument, and fairly realistic4
    • Good sound, especially for the Piano.2

    • It has good sound, and so far we have not had any difficulty with sound issues
    • Great sound and looks
    • However, although I haven't done so yet, I can get three months of free on-line lessons as a bonus with the piano!One of the few buttons features here can make this sound more like a regular electronic piano, or like an organ or bass or synthesizer.
    • They’re all very musically inclined and play numerous instruments and they all just love the sound and natural feeling action of the keys.
    • The semi-weighted keys work great, and the sound is lovely.
    • The semi-weighted keys work great, and the sound is lovely.
    • a five star product however:- B and C keys make an unusually loud clicking sound when playing but none of the other keys seem to do it except for B and C.- Limited effects for customizing sound, tone, tracks,
    • Wish I played it more— but the keyboard has great sound and key weight is like playing a piano
    • Fantastic sound
    • Reverb is somewhat artificial sounding but does improve the sound, chorus is more of a detune effect8
    • Easy to use and good sound.
    • Great sound
    • The sound is not perfectly soft and beautiful like the one you hear from an actual grand piano, but you shouldn’t expect much cus you get as much as you pay... so for the class of “cheap 88 keys pianos” it’s probably the best choice.
    • It works but the sound is pretty bad
    • Sound is very good for the money
    • I'm still not back to where I was when I had my mother's Everett spinet (with a full harp) that had the sweetest sound I ever heard in a piano
    • Great sound and feel for the price

    • Good feel and good sound

    • The keys feel good the sound is warm and it is simple to use
    • The sounds are fairly good, especially for the money.
    • Highest 2 or 3 key sounds are weak on piano setting.
    • It has good sounds for piano and organ
    • you get a light sound, you press harder...you get a louder sound.
    • I mean, the sounds are limited to Piano, Electric Piano, Organ, Synth, and Bass (meh)
    • Good Price and Good sound
    • However it does have like a rattling toy sound and some of the
    • In the mid-range, the piano sound (which is really the standard by which one should judge a digital keyboard) is fine
    • The first one last three days before the sound basically went dead
    • Not the best sound I've heard but not the worst either
    • sound is not better than my cheap yamaha keyboard
    • The sound had stopped working almost completely after 2 months of use
    • The sound isn't that great, but it's good enough
    • Not good quality sound.
    • OThe demo sound wasn't very impressive
    • I wish the Alesis recital had an option to sound more muted but it's full and realistic sound is a winner
    • The keys are only "semi-weighted" but they feel similar to piano keys, with the important feature that the harder you press them, the louder the sound.

    • The sound and action are more like a real piano than the electronic keyboard I had previously.
    • It produces a very nice sounding piano sound and I frequently use the synth and electric piano effects as they also have a great sound
    • This will never approach that sweet sound, but it's still a good sound, and it encourages me to play and get my chops back.
    • The sound is excellent
    • it’s only been a little over a month and the piano has lost its sounds
    • The sound from the piano is nice for an apartment
    • The keys felt awkward at first, the weighting is clumsy, the response somewhat uneven, the sound would frighten anyone who knows anything about music, and it has the feel of a $2000 item someone made a $200 barebones clone of, even down to the perfectly plain black box housing it.
    • One of the keys makes a weird sound when pressed sometimes
    • The sound is really nice and the keys have a good feel to them when pressed
    • We have hooked it up tp speakers and the sound is still pretty good.

    • The Williams cheaper keyboard has better action and MUCH better sound
