OVERVIEW

Affordable, portable digital piano.

Williams Legato is an affordable digital piano with 88 semi-weighted keys, five great sounds (piano, electric piano, organ, synth, and bass) and built-in speakers. It also features split/layer function (to combine sounds) and a built-in metronome. This ultra-portable piano is perfect for performing and practicing.

Voices
The Legato piano has 5 built-in voices. Each voice may be selected one at a time. They can be layered to produce two voices at once, or assigned to the left or right hands in the split mode. Voices include: Piano, Electric Piano, Organ, Synth and Bass.

Split Mode
Split Mode allows the keyboard to be divided into two sections so that different voices may be played with the left and right hands. The volume may be independently adjusted for each voice, the Split Point (the highest note played with the left hand) may be adjusted and the Split Voice may be changed as desired.

Reverb and Chorus Buttons
The Reverb and Chorus effects may be applied to each voice individually and will be retained even when the power is turned off. To apply either effect, press either button. The button will light and the effect will be heard when the piano is played. To turn off the effect, press the button of the desired effect again and the LED light will go off.

Note: This keyboard operates on batteries or with a power supply, but it ships with neither. We enthusiastically recommend the Williams ESS1 Essentials Pack for the Legato Digital Piano, which comes with a power supply, sustain pedal and pair of headphones. #J10039

I bought this on a whim after being dismayed to find that a Yamaha NP-11 (61-note piano in similar price range) did not have an octave-shift feature, and it quickly became a dust-collector in my little studio. I'd had a 76-key a few years ago that didn't get dragged along very often because of the bulk -- so I wasn't really even shopping for a full-size keyboard, so this was kind of out of left field for me.

I was expecting an 'OK' action, and some 'OK' sounds... the features that were important to me were that it 1) could run on batteries (not a primary need, but I'd been spoiled by not having to worry about kicking a cord out of place on stage with some other gear that I use now with battery compartments), 2) could be a good driver for a piano module I have from the '90's (an E-mu Proformance). My expectations were low.

So, when it arrived without the expected MIDI ports (I hadn't even thought to check the description -- I thought this was a standard that would never change), I almost didn't bother taking it out of the plastic. But the sounds on this, while they won't be confused with a Steinway (or even a Roland), are excellent! There is a USB port, so I can still do sequencing with it; but not being able to connect it to my piano module is no longer an issue.

I saw a couple of other reviews that I'd like to address -- someone said that the headphone port was 'non-standard'... well it has a stereo 1/4" port, like headphone ports used to be before the iPhone was what everyone measured the rest of the world by. Saying that's non-standard and that the manufacturer is just trying to get people to buy their headphones is not an accurate assessment.

Others noted this piano doesn't get very loud without being plugged into an external amp -- compared to other pianos that may be true; many full-size pianos are designed to stand on their own for performances in small spaces... this one is loud enough for practice, but probably not for performance.

It is great for the price and has just a few sounds available. For a full-sized keyboard that can travel, I recommend it. However, 6 of the notes randomly spread along the keyboard stopped working after about 1 month of use. The warranty worked fine on getting it replaced, but I was without it for a couple of weeks. That has me worried for the future of the replacement.

      there is no way you can beat the quality of this keyboard for the price .. its a well made, good sounding instrument suitable for practice, rehearsals or professional usage in my opinion .
      i played it for my brother who once sold pianos for a deceased company "Olin Pianos" and he said it instrument sounded good especially using my PV amplifier to boast the sound .

        Perfect for a learner or to practice! good sound, sensitive keys, not many sound selection.
        I bought it for my kids to learn and for me to practice as well which is perfect.

        I would've rate it 5 stars happily but one thing that is erratically wrong is that this keyboard does not bring its own "POWER CORD" i've bought keyboards in the past and all of them had brought their own POWER CORD. It is sold separately just to sell it in a package along with headphones and a pair learning books, it is not ok for this company to sell the POWER CORD separately. NOT RIGHT!!!

        Do not buy this product!

        By Dissatisfied Customer

        from Cleveland, OH

        Comments about Williams Legato 88-Key Digital Piano:

        I purchased this piano for my 9 year old daughter when she started taking piano lessons this summer. She used it for about two months. The piano was very gently used, never moved from the first place we put in it, never dropped, and after two months it just stopped working. I called customer service and they told me "too bad, there is nothing we can do since you didn't buy our warranty and it's past 45 days." A brand new piano should work more than two months with or without warranty. Even Toys-R-Us have 90-day return/exchange policy on these items. It is not worth to repair it because the repair will cost more than the piano itself. Needless to say I will never buy from this website again or this piano.

        The description implied full midi implementation, but the keyboard does not have midi jacks on the unit. Must go through a computer or buy additional hardware. I chose this over another unit because of the (supposed) features listed.

          A good and realistic no frills piano, Rhodes, Organ, Synth with midi that I haven't even connected yet. If you are into vintage keys, buy it. I have a Hammond M-3, Leslie 122, A Fender Rhodes 73, A Roland D-5, a Hampton baby box grand, a Wurlitzer and some home-made synths. I usually prefer reaching for an instrument rather than a patch or preset but If you want to help me haul them around, let me know. Otherwise, I'm using this one.

              I'm just learning keyboard, so I wanted something inexpensive but that also would last me for a while. Turns out, my music teacher actually has the same keyboard. He likes it for the 88 keys and the touch sensitivity. The sound is pretty good, as far as piano goes. There are not a lot of options for different sounds, though, so if that's what you're looking for this might not be it. But for me it's perfect!

              P.S. I bought the pack that goes with it so I could plug it in. There's also a battery option of 6 D batteries.

              Comments about Williams Legato 88-Key Digital Piano:

              My roommates and I wanted an affordable keyboard to share in the apartment. I am a string musician, but wanted to learn piano on my own, while they were looking to keep up their technique as experienced players. This keyboard is perfect for my learning purposes, and I know my roommates have fun playing on it as well. The sound quality is not outstanding, but it is decent and sounds like a piano, and there are a couple extra settings to play with. It's great for the small apartment setting, but you would definitely need to amplify the sound even for a larger setting. It's easy to play, light to transport, and has a little detachable music stand. I'm really glad I looked at the reviews to see that you need to buy the power supply separately, so I was prepared to have a two-day wait on getting to play it when it arrived.
              Overall, great for student musicians and those who just want something to have to play for fun. I hope to hold onto it for a while.

              Comments about Williams Legato 88-Key Digital Piano:

              The price for what you get in an 88-key board is great.
              The keys look like piano keys, but are weighted more like your standard organ.
              The piano sound is fairly realistic (sounding a lot like a recording of a piano), but fails in the low end, not being loud enough nor bassy enough. This may be due to the limitations of the speakers, which are not loud enough for anything other than an intimate performance. The RCA phono line-outs on the back work with plenty of signal strength, and thankfully do not mute the speakers, so that you can plug in to a sound system, but still have the speakers next to you to monitor what you are playing. If you want to mute the speakers, you can plug something into the headphone jack.
              It is not too heavy, so it works well for travelling.
              It is easy to use, and most functions are accessed through easy buttons. The programming functions require the manual, since they are non-intuitive, using the keyboard to select the programming functions. However, if you read the manual, the instructions are clear and allow you to program without learning a new language.
              The standard round MIDI connectors are not present, but there is a USB connector that can connect to the computer.
              The volume knob is small and feels like cheap plastic, but works.
