This instrument is wonderful. I am a 10+year piano player. I have a bachelor's in music and grew up with my own cherry Yamaha baby grand in a room with hardwood floors. If you don't know, that just means I have the alpha piano to compare it to. To be clear, this comes nowhere close. But then again, my parents spent upwards of 10 grand on that piano and it was used and on sale. I bought this at Guitar Center in San Antonio and they threw a piano bench in for free. From what I've seen, you cannot get an upright digital piano for cheaper. Period. That being said, this piano rivals most of the upright acoustics I've played on and blows all the others out of the water. The most annoying thing about an average upright is that the older they get they less they hold their tune, and random keys may lose tension. Keyboards tend to have unstable stands (not good with little ones around), and it is seriously frustrating when I lose the sustain pedal in the middle of a piece because it's not anchored to anything. This piano takes care of all of that. And to compare to an acoustic upright for $500 - you just won't find it in any store. You might find it on Craigslist, but good luck with that.. About the piano itself: The action is good. Not performance standard, but good. Much better than a lot of older though well taken care of acoustic pianos. The sustain pedal isn't what I'd like it to be, but I haven't figured out all the settings yet. And all my college professors yelled at me for overusing it anyway. :) Overall, a quality piece of equipment. Definitely compare to others the same price, but as a professional who actually went around and played all the under $800 pianos in San Antonio, this one definitely takes the cake.

There are a couple things I do not like about this piano. For one, when you play a key it bounces up and hits the felt above to where you hear it hit one another. Its a dull softer sound but it drives me crazy, especially when I am playing a lot of keys fast! Another thing I do not like is the sustain pedal does not sustain as well as preveious pianos (real) I have had. It does sustain well in length of time but does not in the volume it sustains it in. Lastly, I do not like the speakers. When I am not playnig anything I can hear static in the speakers and they are not that loud. Overall I like the piano. Its not as good as a real one but its pretty close. I hope my review helps you! Happy shopping!

Fantastic investment!

By Jeremiah

from North Carolina

Comments about Williams Overture 88 Key Digital Piano:

I purchased this unit just last month and have been extremely happy with the piano! Sound quality is awesome for the price range... and the design/overall appeal of the piano is great as well. we set it up in the office and when we stood back, we decided to move it into the den, it adds to the room so much! I would HIGHLY recommend this piano!

Great starter

By penelope

from New Orleans, LA

Comments about Williams Overture 88 Key Digital Piano:

i bought the piano yesterday. assembly was very very easy. I assume the unit came with no instruction booklette as the sales person loaded the piano sans box into our car because the box was too large and i was not going back into the city to pick it up. it took less than 30 minutes to assemble and connect. sound quality is decent, weighted keys/hammer action is awesome. the unit was on sale so it was a steal. my 4 yr old daughter and I are just starting piano and i will upgrade to a baby grand later but didn't want to spend the money now. this piano is perfect for a starter if you are looking for asthetics and ease of use. no over the top bells and whistles just a few buttons. my daughter can turn it on and off easily. my only complaint is that the unit was a little scuffed up when we unwrapped it and though it was new in box, i'm dissappointed with the dings it had. but hey, all in all it's great.

Pretty Good Piano!

By Will

from Cincinnati, OH

Comments about Williams Overture 88 Key Digital Piano:

If you are sitting at home wondering about all these different pianos, Yamaha, Roland, Williams, Casio. You are probably worried about getting the right one to last a while. The great thing about this piano is that it is has a very nice tone. The sustain is very realistic, and the other voices (organ, harpsichord, ect) are very real as well. The keys feel very realistic, and the volume can get pretty loud before it starts to clip. I am most impressed with the recorder. I play guitar as well and I can play along. The BIG problem I had with this piano is that it turns off and won't come back on. BUT when it is on, it is a very nice piano. WIlliams is a brand for the beginner pianist NOT a advanced player. If you are an advanced player I would direct your attention to the yamaha pianos. All in all, GET THE WARRANTY!

This is a SMOKIN' deal on a GREAT product!

By Jeff

from Layton, Utah

Comments about Williams Overture 88 Key Digital Piano:

I must say this has been a great thing to have in the house, as my kids have really taken to learning the piano! It totally has the look and feel of a piano, which will help them in their quests to learn it. Not too much fluff with bells and whistles, but still enough to make this a bit funner with other sounds and options. The deal is great and the unit is top notch!

Without Assembly Directions

By Lena

from Little Rock, Arkansas

Comments about Williams Overture 88 Key Digital Piano:

I bought 5 of these for my group lesson classroom at my teaching studio. They will work well for beginners, but I do not suggest one for serious musicians. Practicing on this piano would not build the finger strength and dexterity that one needs for playing on an acoustic piano. The sounds are a little honky tonk piano, but again it is nice for a beginning student. Also, there were no assembly directions in any of my boxes. So you must know how one goes together, or else you'll be stuck wondering which screw goes where.

Williams Overture 88 Key Digital Piano

By Sara

from Wilkes-Barre, PA

Comments about Williams Overture 88 Key Digital Piano:

I bought this product for my daughter for her 10th Birthday. It is a wonderful introduction to piano--very versital but not too complicated or intimidating--ie user friendly. She has not stopped playing it since she got it! It is also a very simple, small, and elegant peice of furniture. Size was an issue in our home, and this piano is the 'perfect fit'. The weighted keys and rich tone of this instrument make it feel and sound like a acustic instrument. The price/value ratio is exceptional. I cannot think of one thing that I do not LOVE about this purchase.

Great for the price

By Michael Saltsman

from Salt Lake City, Utah

Comments about Williams Overture 88 Key Digital Piano:

It's a great keyboard for the price. I think it sounds good, my wife is happy with it but says it sounds a little hollow. Looks good and doesn't take up that much space (compared to a standard piano) For the $, it is a great deal.

Looks great! ....Sounds dull!

By Joey

from Detroit, MI

Comments about Williams Overture 88 Key Digital Piano:

If you're in a budget and want something that just looks cool, but dont care for the sound, then buy this! It looks great and it wont break the bank! As far as the sound??? Sounds horrible and dull! I bought it, took it home...24 hours later took it back and upgraded to a Yamaha Arius YDP140. No knock on the people who wrote great reviews, I myself was on a budget, but I had to upgrade, just couldn't tolerate the sound. Hope this helps you out!

Great For the Price

By Ashley

from Oklahoma City, OK

Comments about Williams Overture 88 Key Digital Piano:

I just brought this piano home last night and I am pleasantly surprised!! It is beautiful and looks amazing in my living room. The color of the wood is gorgeous, almost black, but with hints or brown in it (matches IKEA black/brown furniture perfectly!!) Set up was simple enough. It only took us about 10-15 minutes. They don't put set up instructions in the box though. After getting it set up I played for a good hour and messed with volume control and the few features it has. The volume is great and the key response is pretty good, not perfect. The sustain pedal works, but isn't very effective. There is a slight buzz in the speakers when you have the volume all the way up, but when you're playing you can't hear it at all. Overall I am very please with this purchase. I needed something to to make me happy since my beautiful real piano is at my parents house 2000 miles away and this does the trick.

Singing for Joy!

By Gail

from Summerville, SC

Comments about Williams Overture 88 Key Digital Piano:

I was looking for an upright digital piano that was not only good enough to learn on but that would serve to intermediate level or beyond. This model fits and looks handsome in my great room. Shipped via FedEx, it was delivered on time, expertly packed and in perfect condition. The box is oblong & large as piano weighs 132 lbs so best to have two people handling and assembling. As others have mentioned, there are no assembly instructions in the box but there is online at the William's website. We didn't even use them as it was easy to figure out. After trying out various brands in the store I found that most sounded too artificially enhanced. This one sounded the closest to an acoustic piano to me. Of course you are going to get the plastic keys feel unless the keys are ivory or in a higher price range, also some light clicking sounds when keys depressed but this is probably normal. The keys could have been a little more weighted but as long as I'm not transitioning into an acoustic piano any time soon it should not matter plus my hands wont tire out as much. I have been playing it now about a week and everything works just as it should, no problems. I love that it looks like a Clavinova but without the price. Very pleased with this purchase!

Satisfied Customer!

By Patrick

from Fort Worth, TX

Comments about Williams Overture 88 Key Digital Piano:

I just started to learn how to play the Piano and was looking for an inexpensive option to buying a "real" piano. I bought this one and LOVE it. It looks great in my room and was easy to put together even though I couldn't find directions for assembly. It plays well and feels close to "real" thing. My only complaint is that the speakers are not magnetically sheilded and you can hear a slight hum in the sound. Overall, I am very pleased and think you can't beat this deal on a SOLID Digital Piano!

Just no.

By Adrian

from Houston, TX

Comments about Williams Overture 88 Key Digital Piano:

Don't buy this "piano". I regret making this purchase. There are much nicer pianos out there and no matter how much they try to push this piano on you, just say no. By no means am I a piano aficionado, but even I can tell that the action is sloppy and inaccurate at times. There are much nicer pianos out there. Explore your options.

RE: OK

By Angie

from Chattanooga TN

Comments about Williams Overture 88 Key Digital Piano:

This digital piano is "okay" but I'm thinking of selling it and buying a rolland. It's a good beginner's piano, but the hammer action is loud and you have to press harder than you should have to for sound. I've only had it 5-6 months. I'd suggest spending the extra bucks and buying a rolland.

I bought this digital piano for my family to tinker with and practice. I must say that I am VERY impressed with the quality & craftsmanship of this particular model. I think it was well worth the money invested. Sounds great as-is ... but plug it into my Roland KC-550? WOW!

Really Nice

By Ron Crigger

from Manassas, va

Comments about Williams Overture 88 Key Digital Piano:

I got this piano for myself this week and put it together New Years Day. First, I was really impressed with the way the piano was packed. The legs (side panels) were already together with the brackets, all that needed to be done was to put the pedal bar on and then screw on the back panel, it took me about 10 minutes. Had a friend help lift the piano on top and that was easy it there is a slider piece that slides into the bracket and lines it self up to screw on the top. The whole process took about 30 minutes. Sounds great, my friend plays piano and really thought this was great.

Great piano when used with Macbook Pro

By Kristy

from Brooklyn, New York

Comments about Williams Overture 88 Key Digital Piano:

I played piano as a child and through entering college, so over 10 years, quite seriously. Life took me away from music for awhile so after many years of not having a piano of my own (I have a Chickering baby grand at my parents, but it won't fit in my NYC apartment!) I recently decided I wanted to start playing again. I was really impressed with this piano in the store because of the way it felt (has 4 options for touch sensitivity and is decently weighted) and it looked like a nice piece of furniture as well. It was also really on sale at the time, holiday special. I played all of the pianos at the store, and while the Yamaha's were clearly better in touch, sound, features, they were so much more expensive. So for someone like me, just getting back into it, the Overture was the best option. Assembly The keyboard is very heavy, so you will need more than one person to assemble it. The frame it sits on is not of the greatest quality and we were initially concerned about it holding the weight of the keyboard, but it did. (Just not looking forward to taking it apart or moving it!) Sound Once at home in a quiet room, the sound was not as good as I had expected. (In the store it was rather noisy, I'd suggest bringing your own high quality headphones to test out pianos.) There is a noticeable hum when the unit is turned on and the speakers are just not adequate. It sounds like the majority of the sound is coming from below, doesn't surround you like a real acoustic. So I plugged in headphones and it was worse! I don't recommend using their headphone jacks, they only amply the hum. Luckily, the Overture comes with lots of other in and out plugs, including MIDI, USB, line in and out. I plugged a USB cable into my Macbook Pro and launched Garage Band. (comes free with Macs) I created a song file and started playing with their grand piano sounds and adjustments. Eventually, I plugged my headphones into the computer and it sounded AMAZING! It sounds like a different piano, I'd bet coming close to the expensive ones I tried. Clearly the built-in speakers, headphone jacks and sound processor are not of the best quality. Now when I play, the notes are rendered in a so much better way and I can tweak the sound in Garage Band as I like. While I am mostly using it for practicing, I'd like to get some external speakers to connect to it (through the laptop) as well. I am very happy with my purchase. However, if you don't have a laptop computer you can use with it and sound quality is important to you, I'd really suggest looking for a digital piano that has higher quality speakers and a processor built it. If you are just starting out with piano, the Overture would not be a bad choice and the price is great, however your ability to play in a nuanced way is more difficult than a real piano. You'd definitely want to move-up to a good acoustic within a few years or sooner if you are a serious player.
