Korg SV 2/ SV 2S
This is one of the best stage pianos. It has a wider range of sounds, more memory slots, sonic authenticity, retro keyboard tones, and is more tweakable. Depending on its version, it has 73 or 88 hammer action keys and in-built speakers that produce massive, authentic sounds. The best part about this piano is that it includes acoustic sounds from leading Japanese, Italian and Japanese instrumentalists. It also looks great and sophisticated. However, if your budget is a little tight, you might want to look for something cheaper.
Roland RD-88 Stage Piano
This is the perfect piano for someone who is looking for both home and stage use. With a thousand different tones, loud and powerful speakers, and a lightweight body of about 13 kilos, it is the ideal model for both stage performance and an amateur pastime. Other than that, it has a PH4 hammer action keyboard and Ivory Feel keys producing an acoustic sound that is warmer and more resonant. It also comes with a lot of outputs for main out jacks, mic input jack, pedal, MIDI, USB memory port, headphones, and stereo minijack line input.
Yamaha CP88 Stage Piano
This is the ideal stage piano with several connections for line out, MIDI I/O, headphones, Aux input, and USB. Also, using its Live Sets feature with its amazing effects like digital and analog delays, you can create powerful and stacked sounds. Moreover, it offers a retro-inspired interface with a range of sounds like acoustic, organ, electric, and others.
Cavendish Contemporary Acoustic Upright
This is another acoustic piano manufactured in the UK. This premium piano is hand-built raising its quality to high standards. It has a larger soundboard, longer keys, and hand-made strings which produce a rich and authentic sound. Even the range of sounds is limited, the quality of sound this acoustic piano produces is so good that even the best emulations fail at replicating it. However, again this is a very heavy piano and requires strong floors to hold it and strong hands to move it.
Korg Grandstage 88
This one is a superior-looking and sounding stage piano. It is another model that is suitable for both home and stage use and performs efficiently in all types of situations. It has excellent sounds with a wide range that includes acoustic, electric, and synth sounds that are authentic and characterful as well as lush and realistic. It has the RH-3 action keys that work great and is ever ready for a gig. However, these keys may not be as great for synth sounds.
Yamaha U1 Acoustic Upright Piano
Built like a tank, this piano looks really professional and is suitable for both home and studio recordings and on-stage performances. It has three-foot pedals – soft, damper, and mute. Playing this piano makes one feel like one of the Classical pianists like Beethoven or Mozart making it suitable for serious performance. However, it also has a few disadvantages. The first is that it weighs 228 kg making it really heavy and almost impossible to move it around without any outside help. Also, it is very expensive making it unavailable to most people. Another drawback might be is that it is only acoustic and can only produce one sound. However, it also has a 10-year warranty which makes a plus point.
