I am taking music classes at college and wanted an upgrade from my old chinsey piano to practice and play on. I wanted something nice, but being a poor college student, I also needed something affordable. So I did my research and the Williams Overture looked like my best bet. I have had this for a few months now and am extremely pleased with it. It has a great sound and playability, and the weighted keys have a great feel. The velocity sensitivity is a bit temperamental, but it is adjustable to fit your playing style. The built in 2-track recording is great for recording ideas for songs I'm writing before I forget them. The connectivity is also quite nice. You can plug your ipod into the line in and play along. And the usb makes it very easy to record. Just plug into your computer, open garage band and push the big red button, and bam you're recording. If you want to spend more money on a keyboard, there are certainly better ones out there. But this is hands down the best digital piano within it's price range.

Due to the issues I discussed in the Quality section, and after sending back the first one, I reluctantly got a refund for this guy. At first I thought it great that I found a fully-weighted 88 key digital piano for so cheap, but as I mentioned in Value: You get what you pay for. I'll be looking elsewhere and will spend a bit more to ensure quality in my instrument in the future.

If you can live with touch sensitivity issues and are on a tighter budget, then this piano is probably something for you. Otherwise I'd recommend spending a little more.
The biggest fault of this is the touch sensitivity. The first issue is that despite having four touch sensitive options, they all sound more-or-less the same. This isn't a huge problem though. The much larger issue is the fact that of the two pianos of this brand I had, the white keys were not very touch sensitive. If you play a black key, you can range from very quiet to very loud. Play a white key and it'll only play a little softer, no matter how lightly you depress the key.

The biggest flaw I encountered, and why I tried a second piano, was because I had to return the first one due to a large defect: If you played the same key in rapid succession, it wouldn't sound the note half the time. This made a lot of music unplayable.
I'd say that you get what you pay for on this one. It is a digital piano with 88 weighted keys and three pedals, and doesn't look to shabby in a room either. However, the nuances with the touch sensitivity are something you will have to deal with if you're cutting costs when purchasing a digital piano in this case.

Comments about Williams Overture 88 Key Digital Piano:

I'm enjoying this piano very much. Build quality is good and the sound and weighted keys are also good. I read a lot of reviews before buying and almost missed out on a great product. The keys are not progressive but the weight is fine and should allow beginners to gain hand strength. The piano sounds are good and if you need a better piano sound there are plenty of synch software out there. I found a program that is free and has excellent grand piano sounds. With the abundance of software available and a USB cable you can do just about anything now. No problem with buzzing from speaker and no problem with the touch sensor as described by a few YouTube videos. I have 23 years worth of experience as a pianist and highly recommend this product.

Comments about Williams Overture 88 Key Digital Piano:

Bought the Williams Serenade 6 months ago. We loved the Piano but speakers quit working for some reason. Musiciansfriend advised us to pay to have it shipped to them since Williams warranty was through Musiciansfriend and they agreed to send us a new piano but the Serenade was no longer available. They first wanted to send us a Rapsody but I told them that was a down grade and not acceptable. I wanted my Serenade fixed. We called Williams but they do not do any warranty work any more. They simply replace the piano with a new one. I called Musicianfriend and advised them of what Williams said. I got another supervisor at Musiciansfriend and I was so Happy that He worked with us and got a new Overture sent out to us. The Overture does not have the 4 internal speaker the Serenade has so it is not as loud without pluggin into an amp or sound system but you can still practice with the speakers it does have. It still is a wonderful Piano that you do not have to pay to tune. My wife Loves it and it does feel very close to an acoustic piano. Take my advise and unplug it like the book says after every use. I don't think you will have the problem we had if you keep it unplugged when not using it... I would have given it 5 stars if Williams would Warranty the thing themselves... I love Musiciansfriend

Comments about Williams Overture 88 Key Digital Piano:

Very nice digital piano for the money. We purchased for personal use and enjoyment. You will not get the "big money" grand piano sound or expensive keyboard sound. But for personal use and enjoyment, given the cost, it is perfect for our use. We would recommend to anyone.

    Advertised as a level 3 good condition piano. But when it arrived, one of the stand was dislocated and I have to repair it. Should have been categorized as level 2 or needs repair.

            It is not MusiciansFriend's fault, and also it is not the carrier's fault that the item is damaged on arrival. I had to have Musician's Friend replace my first shipment. On the second shipment the item is damaged again. it is the vendor's low quality of packaging. They could have done a better job to prevent these damages. I did not get to try to piano, so I can't comment on the quality of the product.

                Comments about Williams Overture 88 Key Digital Piano:

                I didn't want my daughter to learn to play piano on either of the the midi keyboards that I already owned, since their keys did not have action close to that of a real piano. I was hoping that the Overture 88-key digital piano would have realistic samples and appropriately weighted keys - and my hopes were met nicely! Certainly, if you are willing to spend over 2 grand on a truly high end piano, you can find better key action, but for a thousand or less the Overture is the best digital piano that I've found. Great for beginner to intermediate players or multi-instrumentalists like me. Has the standard three piano pedals, a midi output for playing soft synths and a headphone jack for night practice. It's also beautiful and extremely portable (best for living room use - only gig with it if you have a large van and two people to move it since the stand is not removeable). This is a great buy, in my opinion.
