Can anyone recommend any budget keyboards and digital drums

23 posts in this topic

Yeah I've been looking into the retro casios with the 80s sound, got a few good options now to keep us all occupied for a while when I decide on which to buy , you can get some nice lil digital drums with loads of settings too which look decent for the kids

I picked up one of these Casio XW-PD1's recently when I noticed the price had dropped to £120 (you can even get them for under £100 now)

They look a bit daft but are actually good fun, and you can quickly put a tune together on them without the need for a computer :yep:

Conrad electronics have got them for £87.99 mate, it's a bargain considering they cost about £350 when first released last year.

As they're so young maybe go second hand. A Yamaha DJX keyboard would keep them occupied for hours, it did me and I was 30 lol.

My little one is 6 and has shown an interest in music. She was at her grans a few weeks ago and had a go on her aunts piano and loved it. She instantly asked for one so we got her a DJX for her chrimbo.

She has CP and the hand eye coordination she showed when on the piano was about as good as we have ever seen. My mate has a small studio in his spare room that has a pile of good old bits of music equipment so he said he will pull out some other things for her. Fingers crossed its all his roland gear (101,303,808 and 909). I've been after that shit for years.

Cheers tico.

If only, but i dont expect any roland gear to come my way. Mainly because my mate knows it would be me fiddling with its knobs not the wee one. Not sure what he will be giving her but he knows his onions so it will most likely be something that will work with the DJX in some way. Or a simple drum machine of some sort.

Cheers tico.
