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.

Nice, portable, broke quickly

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.

      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!!!

      This piano is difficult to hear. It sounds like a toy. It is not worth the price due to poor key action and sound.

          Comments about Williams Legato 88-Key Digital Piano:

          I purchased this for my 17 year old daughter who is a violist preparing to enter into conservatory next year, and she loves it. For the price, this is a great bargain...especially if you can get an "Open Box" unit through Musician's Friend. The only drawback is it does not come with a power supply. From what I've read the Legato requires a different power supply than the Allegro, so you need to confirm the power supply you purchase will fit the Legato. Other than that, it has a very realistic sound, touch sensitive keys, and is portable.
