Getting a full 88-key keyboard doesn’t have to mean wiping out your savings account.

With the Alesis Recital, you’ll get the entire range of the piano at a very reasonable price

It’s a fantastic bargain for beginning players, especially, with loads of included features aimed at students and novices.

The response on this Alesis model is admittedly not as close to a real piano as some of the other (more expensive) options on the list.

The keys are semi-weighted and have a hammer action, and the response is adjustable—a nice touch that makes it more versatile for players of all ages and experience levels.

We were impressed with the sound this piano puts out for the price.

It has two 20-watt speakers built in, which put out plenty of sound for in-home practice and play.

That being said...

It doesn’t have a huge array of different voices, but the ones it does have sound realistic.

The 128-note polyphony means you won’t have any trouble playing multiple lines at the same time, just like you would on an acoustic piano.

But here’s where it gets good:

The student-friendly aspects of the Alesis Recital are its most impressive features. The keyboard can be split into two zones that use the same range, letting a student and teacher play together on the same instrument.

Helpful features for at home practice include a metronome and a recording mode, that lets you record and listen to your playing so you can better hear trouble areas.

The excellent value of this keyboard is just the icing on the cake that makes it the ideal digital piano for a beginning player.
