... does anyone have any experience of the Broadway BA1 (or any of their other pianos)?

If so, what are they like please? Would you say they were worth the money, or would I be better off with a kazoo?

Thanks

I'd avoid it if I were you. This sort of no name junk usually comes from China and fit and finish and quality control are usually pretty dismal. Plus in 4 years or so if it needs service you'll never find parts for it.

The big names all manufacture in China too, but they have reputations to protect and they will actually have reachable customer service if you run into problems.

I'd say if this is the sort of instrument you are looking for then look at the Casio PX-360 or PX-350 or even the Yamaha DGX-660 or DGX-650.

Even if you bought a used one a couple of years old I'd still trust it more than a no name, fly by night, company like this one.

Thanks Gary

I figured as much, but thought I'd try the collected wisdom here. I just may have found a gem! Thanks for the links, I'll check them out.
