“Size” and “Texture” came in second place, followed by
“Storability” which came in 7th place.
1st place: Sound quality
・Although all pianos may sound the same, each one has a completely different tone, so it would be helpful if you could comment on what kind of characteristic tone they have. (Female in her 30s)
・Pianos have completely different sounds depending on the piano, so I look at reviews to find out what kind of sound each piano has. (Female in her 30s)
-Sound is the most important thing for musical instruments. Especially if you have a clear favorite song or artist, you want to choose an instrument with a sound quality that matches it. (Female in her 40s) The first place was “sound quality”.
The sound quality of pianos varies depending on the piano, so many people say that you should choose the one with the sound quality that you like.
2nd place: Size
– When installing it at home, no matter how good the design or sound quality is, it’s meaningless if the size doesn’t match. After satisfying the size condition, compare with other conditions. (Female in her 30s)
・Since I live in a regular house, I think it would be good if it was a size that was not too big and easy for anyone to buy. And if the price is too high, you won’t be able to afford it, so if it’s a reasonable price, I think it’s easy for families with children to afford it. (Male in his 30s)
・If it’s too big or wide, you’ll feel pressured. My house isn’t that big, so I prefer something smart. (Female in her 30s)
Second place was “Size”.
The size of your home is an important consideration.
3rd place: Texture
・I think the most important thing for a piano is the texture of the keys. This changes the important playing feel. (Female in her 40s) ・I can find out the price and size by looking at the product page on the website, but I don’t know the actual quality, so I rely on reviews (female in her 20s)
・I think the texture of the keyboard is quite important. Ideally, you should be able to play any piano, but if you want to play for fun or as a hobby, I think the texture is the most important thing. (Female in her 40s)
4th place: Functionality
– Regarding the functionality of the piano, we look at how carefully various functions are handled, such as being able to change the weight of the keyboard, recording function, and being able to save songs to USB. (Female in her 20s)
・You can enjoy playing the piano by having a variety of sounds. I chose functionality because it allows me to enjoy the sound and enjoy the rhythm while playing the piano. (Female in her 20s)
・What kind of reviews about the piano you refer to will depend on functionality. If the functionality is excellent, people will want to use it for a long time. (Male in his 30s)
5th place: Lightness
・There’s no point in referring to reviews about things you can tell by seeing or hearing, so I thought reviews about weight, which you can’t tell at first glance, would be helpful. (Female in her 20s)
・Electronic pianos are especially light when played, so when you actually play an ivory piano at a recital or in a classroom, it can be heavy and make it difficult to produce sound. I want to choose items that are as similar in weight as possible. (Female in her 40s) -Pianos have the image of being large and heavy, so in modern homes you have to think about where to store them, so I think lightness is very important. (Male in his 30s)
6th place: Design
・I chose this piano because my house is small and I wanted a piano with a design that didn’t feel overwhelming. I searched and read reviews of people living in small homes like myself who were happy to purchase a piano with a design that didn’t feel overwhelming. (Female in her 30s)
・When purchasing a piano for your home, it is important to consider whether it matches the atmosphere of the room. Also, check the color and size. (Female in her 20s)
-I don’t have much space to put a piano in my house, so the size was very important.Also, I wanted to place it in the living room so that my child can practice easily, so I was very particular about the design to match the atmosphere of the house. (Female in her 20s) 7th place: Storage ability
・My house is not large, so I don’t want to take up too much space. I think it’s best to choose a piano that can be stored away and doesn’t get in the way. (Female in her 20s)
・I think it is necessary to know the basic size.It is necessary to read reviews to understand whether you can place it where you want it. (Male over 50s)
7th place was “storability”.
Some people said they would like to choose something like a piano that can be stored away on a regular basis.
When we surveyed 100 people, 57.0% of them answered “sound quality”. In addition, many respondents said that the sound quality varies greatly depending on the piano, and that it is better to choose a piano with the sound quality that suits your taste.
You can see that sound quality is the most important thing when it comes to pianos.
Why not use this as a reference when choosing a piano?
