OVERVIEW

Portable piano with power supply, sustain pedal, and headphones.

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. This version also includes the ESS1 Essentials Pack with power supply, sustain pedal, and a pair of headphones.

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.

Bought this when it was on Stupid Deal. It was so cheap it was hard to turn it down. I wanted to see what the "bottom of the todum pole" 88 keyboard was like. Plus it never hurts to have a backup. I normally play a dual stack in my band (MO-8 on bottom, SK1 on top), and my main home practice keyboard is a P-105. Needless to say, you get what you pay for in a keyboard. Not bashing this model at all. The built in speakers are not very loud and do not carry bass well. However if you run the line out into a decent amplifier, it's really not bad at all. The keys are very cheap feeling. Not a bad thing because the keys are what usually adds the weight; And this keyboard is super light. The biggest drawback I have noticed is the memory. This model does not have enough memory to hold a note on the left hand and do a gliss with the right. The sound cuts out an octave at a time. Luckily this will effect very few people, especially students.

I got this to loan out to new students who have no keyboard. It gives parents time to shop around. The saying is true that you get what you pay for...and for the price, it's satisfactory for the purpose. The touch is not a true weighted hammer action, but there is some resistance and moderate dynamic control (touch sensitivity). The sounds are decent, although the tiny speakers have limited resonance. There are line-out jacks (RCA) for external speakers, which is a nice feature.

      For the money, tough to complain. Well constructed, good voices. The key action is a little stiff/heavy but maybe that's something to get used to.

        Comments about Williams Legato Digital Piano with ESS1 Essentials Pack:

        This keyboard is really nice because it's super lightweight and with the right stand, pretty compact. With multiple hobbies between my partner and I in a one-bedroom apartment, the less space something can take, the better. The keys aren't fully weighted, but weighted enough that the transition from keyboard to actual piano shouldn't be too jarring. Good sound, no real complaints thus far.

          My 15 year old grand daughter is in love with her new piano. The 88 keys, semi weighted, the sound , the ease of set up and the immediate gratification to be able to start learning new music, all contributed to one awesome Christmas.
          And bonus to me, is the promise credit for the difference on the Black Friday price. Looking forward to getting it.

          Comments about Williams Legato Digital Piano with ESS1 Essentials Pack:

          Bought as an upgrade to a non-velocity-sensitive keyboard, mostly for my daughter's practice (6 years old; first foray into piano lessons). Meant to save it for next year but brought it out early to help her get used to sensitive keys since her first recital would be on a grand piano. The plan worked and we'll be glad to keep this around, especially once she learns pedals (I don't have one for that other keyboard).

                I love this piano! I have an upright grand piano but I take care of two elderly parents and one of them watches tv in the same room as the piano so it was inconvenient to practice in there all the time. I ordered this digital piano and stand and set it up in another room and it works wonderfully! I can practice any time I want to and the sound is beautiful! It is heavy enough to be sturdy but light enough for me to move on my own. For the price and benefits I would definitely recommend this!

                    When I press too lightly, it sometimes doesn't respond to make a sound. Also, if you press on the pedal when you turn it on, it will hold the sustain for keys. I found that just keeping off the pedal when you turn it on will avoid this.

                        Was disappointed. Was attracted by the sale-price, unfortunately got what I paid for. Had to ship it back at my expense...given a refund minus some type of fee, plus my own return shipping expense did not make this a worthwhile spontaneous purchase....not going to do that with Musicians Friends again.

                        Service and delivery comments:

                        Talked with customer service folks about getting this returned. They were very helpful and gracious in what they could/would do. Only complaint was that the customer service person agreed to cancel an accessory I ordered to go with this keyboard since I was returning it. It shipped and arrived at my house anyway, and required another call to customer service, new return shipping labels (to ship at no cost to me), and another trip to the UPS store.

                            This piano is perfect for my needs. I took lessons when I was little but haven't played in a while. Now I'm in my early 20s, and I wanted to start playing again, and this is just what I needed. The sound quality is great, in my opinion, and I love that the keys are semi-weighted.

                            The essentials pack, however, is poor quality. The power supply is great, but my headphones broke after two days, and the pedal isn't amazing, but it works for my needs. I'd recommend buying different (better) headphones and maybe a better pedal if that's really important to you.

                                I am 52 years old. I took piano lessons when I was 10 or 11. I have always had keys in my home. This being my 4th to own. They are perfect, now that I have time to buy lesson books and catch up to where I left off and gain skills from there. Thanks for the great keys...at the very affordable price. Shipping was fast as stated on my order.

                                I bought this when it was less than the time I saw it as a stupid deal of the day. So I have no regrets. However I would never have bought it full price. Or even close to full price. It is so light because it is cheaply built.

                                If the piano sound was more realistic I would rave about this piano, but it is only decent. It sounds like a "bright" piano with out enough layers.

                                I will complement the keys and action though. They feel good. They are not realistic of course but I use it as a DAW (Protools 8) MIDI input for synths and plug in instruments.

                                Last thing the built in speakers are terrible.

                                  I got this as a studio instrument, so bandmates wouldn't have to set up a keyboard for every rehearsal. But the key action is bouncy and strange. Very unnatural.

                                  I bought this to use with my KORG and KURZWEIL rack units but the Wiiliams only had USB to MIDI whereas my rack units are the "old" 7 pin MIDI. Lesson learned; I returned it.
