  1. Gilberto Garcia

    A mi me gustó.

    La verdad es que no se mucho de pianos, yo apenas estoy comenzando a aprender y esta muy cómodo, las teclas no son muy duras, pero tampoco están muy blandas, el sonido es a mi parecer muy bueno.

    Mangelnde Qualität des Keyboards

    Abwicklung und Lieferung perfekt, 5 Sterne. Was das Instrument betrifft, ist die Qualität sehr durchschnittlich. Die Größe der Tasten weicht vom Standard ab, sie sind robust und kantisch. Ich wollte ein leichtes Keyboard für Übungen während der Reise kaufen. Bin enttäuscht, nicht empfehlenswert.

    Sonido y peso de teclas ideal para principiantes

    A mi hija le gustó mucho porque es principiante y el peso de las teclas está bien, puesto que se sienten pesadas como un piano. Aclaro que es la percepción de una principiante.

  11. Yanick Blanchette

    Parfait pour semi-pros

    Pour le prix, c’est imbattable. La touch est vraiment agréable en générale et le son direct du piano est très bien sauf les effets « stocks » qui sont plutôt médiocres. Par contre le reverb est très bien. Bien sûr l’attaque en pianissimo n’est pas le point fort…. Vous commencez ou êtes intermédiaire et voulez apprendre sans les mauvais plis causés par un instrument bas de gamme qui ne possèdent que très peu de variantes d’intensité et aucun feeling sur les touches !? Hé bien c’est LE clavier pour vous à un prix très raisonnable 🙂

  12. Neil Roberts

    Great for Portable Practice

    You cannot fault this for the money. The sounds are more than adequate & the piano action feels good. I prefer the sound through a larger speaker, but at low volume the little speakers are okay. I’m using it mostly to take around with me, but when practicing I midi it & use professional Yamaha pianos & Roland synths from it.It is great to use in a smaller studio as a midi piano keyboard too. Obviously a £6,000 88 note electronic piano is going to be better, but it is what it is. Cheap as chips as David Dickinson would say & an absolute bargain to boot. I’m very pleased with it when all said & done. 😊

    Ideal first piano

    Well, I’ve had this piano for two weeks now and I am delighted with it.The sound quality is excellent, the keys have just enough resistence to give a genuinely piano-like feel to them, and the touch sensitivity is very welcome, so for anyone looking to learn piano rather than just keyboard I will defiitely recommend this.I spent a couple of months over the summer umming and ahing over which keyboard to go for, eventually narrowing it down to the Recital 61 (I have limited space) or the Yamaha 373; deciding that, whilst the 373’s grand piano sound is gorgeous, it lacks the key-feel of a real piano. For anyone learning to play piano, as opposed to just ‘keyboard’, this feel, the combination of weight and touch sensitivity, is vital, and as the 10billion bells and whistles on the Yam did not interest me, the Alesis won out by quite a distance.Are there any downsides to this piano? Only a couple of *very* minor ones related to the power cable. The wire for this is seriously short (a little over a yard in length) and the jack plug/socket connection feels a bit too tight (so much so that unplugging it from the back of the machine feels a little uncomfortable in case I may damage it in some way) so instead I unplug from the wall rather than from the piano itself. These are though, as I said, very minor quibbles and certainly would not have stopped me buying this piano if I’d known in advance.So, summing up, I’d recommend this piano for anyone looking to actually learn piano rather than ‘keyboard’. It has everything you need to learn to be a decent pianist from scratch. All you need to do now is buy one and practise.

  16. Sarow Narrow

    Parfait pour débuter

    Je le trouve super bien pour débuter, je ne suis pas forcément d’accord avec tous les avis…Points positifs- Toucher dynamique très proche de la sensation piano- Beau design épuré- Son pur et délicat- Réglages faciles- Prix imbattablePoint négatifs- Câble court (prise française donc OK)- Les aigus (dernières touches) me semblent bien trop faibles par rapport aux graves

    Great quality without a gazillion gadgets

    The feel of the keys (semi-weighted) and sound quality are amazing, possibly because with this keyboard, you’re not paying for a millions synthesizers buttons but for a well developed keyboard. I’m sad I couldn’t fit the 88 keys in my house, but the 61 fits just right at the end of the dining table. Great features include the possibility to hook it to an iPad and headphones so no one struggles hearing your struggles as you learn to play 🤣 very happy with this purchase.

    Great for beginners

    I bought my Alesis Recital 61 keyboard having no previous piano or keyboard training, having decided in my mid-forties to finally put in the time to learn for fun. I have been using the keyboard now almost every day, following along with the included 3-month Skoove subscription, and have been enjoying every minute. I have not used some of the included features, but expect to as I gradually improve my skills. The keyboard is light enough to carry around easily from room to room, and solid enough to rest on whatever playing surface you choose with no wobble or bouncing while playing – I use an X-Frame stand and have no complaints. I would recommend this brand and model to any beginner looking for a sturdy keyboard to learn on.

    High Quality and Affordable Piano Keyboard

    I originally bought this piano keyboard for my seventeen-year-old son who has Autism and loves music! This piano keyboard was the perfect fit for him…looking forward to him progressing in his piano skills. I am very pleased with the investment made in this specific keyboard and highly recommend it to anyone looking for a high quality and affordable keyboard.

    Closest you can get to an acoustic piano for the size and weight!

    Such a great practice piano for a beginner! I have a large 88 key with weighted keys that I can’t just carry around and it takes up a ton of space. I couldn’t find any other keyboard this small and light with full size semi weighted keys except for this. It’s the closest you can get to an acoustic piano for the size and weight, and it sounds great! Great price too! Love it!!

    Great for Beginners!

    I am so happy with my keyboard. I am teaching myself piano for the first time, which is difficult enough, I really needed a user friendly keyboard.

  25. no

    Very good choice

    I purchased this for someone taking a piano class at school to have at home. It seems as though it will serve that purpose well. it is quite robust/heavy for the price, and seems well-made. It sits in a middle ground between those full-featured plastic keyboards from Yamaha and other brands with a range of sounds and buttons, and a lower-end professional keyboard. The keys are the right size, and the sound quality is very good. Nothing fancy, but it does what it is supposed to do very well. You could practice on this, entertain people, goof around, write music with it. I don’t think I’d take it on tour, but otherwise, it is a good choice.

    Works great for practice piano

    Like the smaller size and great sound for my needs. Was just wanting something for myself to practice on. Played piano years ago and decided to pick it back up again. Good way to get refreshed. And the smaller size doesn’t take up a lot of room.

    It’s pretty good

    This keyboard is especially great for beginners. However, I noticed the sound from one of the speakers start to produce a fuzzy sound when pressing certain keys, so I don’t know how to fix that. In terms of its portability though, it’s very well portable; however it’s pretty heavy to carry as well. One thing I also want to mention is that headphones don’t seem to work when plugged in, so there’s that.

    An actual starter for real musicians.

    I am the keyboardist for my church and I’m used to a high quality keyboard around $5000 quality. During Covid I have been doing worship videos from home with my piano but wanted to have a synth effect to add more ambiance I had ordered a slightly more expensive Yamaha let’s just say any of those under 1000$ sound like toys lol. This I am unbelievably Happy with. It’s still not as great as the churches of course but it has the sound quality any vocalists and genuine musician wants. My only complaint is I’m used to 88 keys and I can tell the difference but that’s something I can live with

    Semi-weighted keys does NOT mean weighted keys!

    I bought this under the assumption that it was 18 lbs for 61 key and that it must have had weighted keys….alas, I was wrong, these are spring loaded keys. I WANT A SMALL KEYBOARD TO USE AT WORK, WITH PIANO-WEIGHTED KEYS—-apparently I search in vain—-HELLO MANUFCTURERS!!!!!—-so I pissed away my $200 hard-earned US Dollars (last yrs AGI in NJ was 22632) on the ONE keyboard which I THOUGHT had fully Propah key feel, to NO AVAIL! HELLO NAMM 2022, since it’s too late for 2021…make some good stuff that we can sneak into work. I already bought a Roland Go-Keys 88, and a Yamaha Piaggero NP-32, and finally a Yamaha P-125, which fills the bill, except that an 88 key thing is hard to bring to work—thus I HOPED BEYOND HOPE THAT SOMEONE MIGHT MAKE A 61 KEY “board”….HELLO MANF’s and NAMM hangers-on. The Po folk all round da woild need a 61 key weighted key piani!!! Take MY WORD FOR IT! I watch Jeremy See and James Pavel Shawcross and other youtube influencers. You just don’t think that THERE IS A MARKET FOR IT, do ya? Well…I have stated my case.

    Unreliable and only for begineers

    electronics unreliable – runaway functioning, loss of controlfor beginners only – key weight and sound unrealistic compared to acoustic piano

  34. Clan Duncan


    At max the volume is incredibly quiet. The piano sound is tinny, and the worst one on the board. I didn’t even have this board two hours and I packed it up and sent it back. Never thought I’d say it but you’re better off with a Casio.

    Do not buy it used on amazon

    I bought it used but very good on amazon. IT was supposed to have minor cosmetic defect and work perfectly. It came with one key that never worked. Unfortunately I could not claim within the timeline for return and got no assistance. Please buy it new or do not buy it. The Amazon label of used but good cannot be trusted.

    Piano de très bonnes qualités

    Ce piano est très bien pour l’apprentissage le son est de qualité, j’ai ajouté des stickers de notes de musique pour apprendre plus rapidement.Il ya un support intégré très utile pour mettre une tablette ou des notes de partition.Le toucher est plutôt agréable c’est très bien pour débuter.Par contre la livraison était impeu longue.

  41. Marcelo

    Excellent for a beginner

    The piano is very good for the price, I don’t have any complaint. The sound is not the best, I find the virtual instruments that I have way better then the built-in sounds, but it does the job. The learning app that comes with it Skoove is not bad, but it doesn’t recognize notes very well. I am just disappointed with Amazon, I bought the 61 keys instead of the 88 because this wasn’t available, but in the end it took so long to arrive that if I had bought the 88 keys(that I actually wanted) it would have arrived at the same time. I understand we’re facing a complicated moment but it’s a bit frustrating.

    Perfecto para empezar

    El piano suena bien. Tiene 10 voces y aunque habría echado en falta una tipo guitarra no está mal. La única pega que le pondría es que hay algunos programas que devuelven un error de falta de memoria del piano cuando ll conecto. No sé si realmente es cosa del piano.

    Pros: compact and light weight with full sized keys. Good volume. Keys feel slightly better than an entry level keyboard but are absolutely NOT weighted.Cons: keys are not weighed (if I had to guess, I would say they may have a spring underneath). The sound isn’t great- the volume is fine bit the actual piano sound is rough.Overall, I think this keyboard is overpriced. It’s better than an absolute entry level keyboard but not by much.

  45. David & Nikki Spencer

    Excellent product but don’t bother with Skoove if you’re an Android user.

    Received this yesterday and first impressions very good. It is a replacement for a very old Roland ep-7e that gave up the ghost and it compares very favourably. The only criticism so far is the included Skoove Premium trial – this only works on a PC, laptop or Apple product (iPhone, iPad) but not Android. Therefore Skoove is useless for anyone, like me, who wants to use an Android tablet. That negative aside I am very happy with this product and it appears to be excellent value for money.

    Excellent keyboard with great sound

    This keyboard is well built and robust with nice sound (comparable to a piano) and is large enough to play almost any beginner song. The keyboard is useful for not only beginners but also intermediates as it has a plug in for a pedal and controls such as reverb. Great price for what you get and would highly recommend for any user especially beginners.

    Baby Boomer Keyboard

    Like a lot of kids growing up in the ’60’s, I took piano lessons for a few years, but I was not gifted so I lost interest. However, I always thought I would try again as an adult. I decided that during the quarantine was a good time to try. Love this keyboard! The sound is great, the keys feel good, and I’m having so much fun being a basic player. Totally recommend this keyboard.

    Great portable keyboard

    Alesis has a long history and a great reputation for sound quality and mechanical action. This Recital 61 deserves its name. Lots of stops, lots of ways to connect, midi compatible, great music stand. Industry standard interfaces. We use it at home for pleasure, but I think it would work well for a small band or a teaching application too.

    Does not have Semi Weighted keys

    This was a gift. And I feel ripped off. I wanted a small keyboard with weighted keys, Any weight. There is none, this has spring loaded keys. If I wanted a keyboard like this I would’ve purchased something used from the 90s, for around $20. Voices sound cheap, Can’t adjust FXs (hope you like a fast chorus) It’s weighed in the sense that it feels like it has two cement bricks in it. Build quality is decent.

    More than adequate for a beginner.

    Every bit as heavy as advertised. Nonetheless still portable. I have mine in a fixed location. The sound quality is just a little less than I had expected but still very acceptable for a beginning student like myself. I would definitely say this is a great alternative to a full 88 keyboard if you don’t have the space.

    Unexpected value at a low price.

    Amazing keyboard for the price. The keys are satisfactory, the sound is quite good for a keyboard at this price, build quality feeling very solid, and the midi works as expected. Haven’t used the metronome as I have other devices for that., as such I can provide no feedback on how well it functions. All in all for a $200 keyboard it is a great buy. I will definitely consider this brand for future purchases.
