Digital pianos, also known as electric pianos or epiano, try to reproduce the sound and feel of acoustic pianos as authentically as possible.
In the 1970s, techniques were still used to amplify strings or reeds electronically (e.g. Yamaha CP70 or Fender Rhodes).In the early 90s, the new sampling technology made it possible to make the sound more and more authentic.
The keyboard action has also become more and more complex and now offers a realistic playing feel. Another great advantage of digital pianos is that they can be played with headphones at any time of the day or night. The models range from compact and mobile digital pianos to cases that resemble a real grand piano. But JustMusic also offers stage pianos and hybrid pianos.
Famous manufacturers of modern digital pianos include Casio, Kawai, Korg, Roland, Kurzweil, Nord and Yamaha.
