Grab A Bargain - Buy Piano/Keyboards Online

Jul 3, 2008
If you are prepared to do a little searching and have a little patience, you can grab a cracking bargain. Buy your electronic keyboards at online auction sites like eBay.

Electronic keyboards have become very popular over recent years. The cost of a top end keyboards such as Yamaha Tyros 2, Korg PA2x Pro and Yamaha Motif XS keyboards are in the region of two to three thousands pounds, depending where you shop. They are even cheaper in the U.S. and cheaper still at online auction sites.

Can you buy the latest electronic keyboard at an auction?

Probably not, and if it is available it will most likely be new. If you see any silly prices, it could be a scam. For instance if you saw Yamaha Tyros 3 on eBay today for Five Hundred Pounds, you know its a scam because the Tyros 3 isn't out yet and when it is released it will be in the region of Three Thousand Pounds. Just use common sense.

There's thousands of keyboards for sale online

Okay we are talking about top end keyboards here but there are thousands of other makes available for bargain prices. Here are just a few top makes of electronic keyboards you can search for

Yamaha
Technics
Korg
Roland
Ketron
Casio

At the time of writing this article, the most popular electronic keyboard is the Yamaha Tyros 2. The recommended retail price for this keyboard is Three thousand pounds, you can probably find it at online stores for two thousands pounds and on online auction sites, there's one on eBay right now for one thousand pounds. So, do you want a brand new one for between two and three thousands pounds or a used one for a thousand pounds, and that's just one keyboard out of thousands available.

It's a buyers market

The great thing about online auctions is that if you get outbid, there's bound to be more available if not today then tomorrow and if you have the patience, you will get a bargain. Timing is also an important part of obtaining a bargain. For instance, I mentioned above that the Yamaha Tyros 3 is about to be released, this means that there will be more Tyros 2 keyboards available for bargain prices and even more Tyros 1 keyboards. If you do a bit of research, you can find out when new keyboards are to be released and bid on the previous model. Using this method of buying keyboards can save you literally thousands of pounds.

Obviously, there are going to be the die hards that want the latest and greatest musical equipment as soon as it released. That creates more choice for the rest of us that can't quite afford the high cost of new instruments.

To conclude, if you want a bargain priced keyboard, do a bit of research on your chosen model then check the online auction sites every day. Be patient, you will get a bargain if you choose the right keyboard model.
