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.

    Used to catch up on piano skills lost over the years. Mostly play by ear. Will check out the software that apparently is compatible with this piano - like for learning new music maybe.

    Comments about Williams Legato 88-Key Digital Piano:

    You need to arrange to buy a pedal, power cable, and headphones as this piano doesn't come with them, even though the product images are EXTREMELY misleading on this! Zoom in and read the very small text in the image that says that you have to get it separately. It blows my mind that they can get away with sleazy marketing like this, but the piano itself is pretty good for the price so I let it slide. "Semi weighted" is a little bit of a stretch, but it is definitely better than nothing.

    Comments about Williams Legato 88-Key Digital Piano:

    This was purchased for my daughter who wants to learn how to play piano. I didn't want to invest in a regular size piano until I knew she was serious, she tends to change her mind frequently. It didn't take up any more space in her room than the keyboard that she had so that was perfect. So far we are very pleased with our purchase. I would recommend this to anyone just starting out or for a child.

    Comments about Williams Legato 88-Key Digital Piano:

    As I listed in the cons, it only has limited (five) sounds and it doesn't come with a power adapter or sustain pedal. If you read the specs etc...you will know this. It's a 2amp 12volt adapter, but I know for fact it will run on a .5amp 12volt adapter. You may have one already if you save adapters when the product they came break.

    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.

      Comments about Williams Legato 88-Key Digital Piano:

      I used to take piano lessons as a kid, but it's been over 30 years since I put my fingers on a piano keyboard. I wanted to get something economical that I could practice on and try my hand again at playing. After a day of major fumbling (my fingers were definitely rusty), I'm back to being able to play the music I used to as a kid. If only I'd practiced back then like I've been since I got this keyboard, I'd probably be a concert pianist by now. :) LOVE IT!

        Comments about Williams Legato 88-Key Digital Piano:

        I bought this to learn piano and for my children to start learning as well. Let's face it, this piano is inexpensive and from the amount of "used" ones for sale they are not very popular as many people appear to be returning them. They do have very cheap buttons - like a cheap toy.

        That said, it is what it is. I didn't spend a lot of money and did not expect much. What I did get was a very good 88 key piano for a very decent price. As mentioned in other reviews, it is quiet (get an amp, a cheap one will do) and I don't know how long it may hold up but the piano itself appears to be well made 9apart from the buttons) and has a very good sound. If everyone learns good we can get a more expensive model.
