The Rinkmo E-115 88-Key Beginner Digital Piano is a great choice for beginners or anyone who wants a budget digital piano. It has a traditional piano performance style, semi-weighted keys, and a universal sustain pedal.
The wood-look style makes it a stylish addition to any home.
But how is the quality? Let’s explore more and see how does this brand size up to others!
88 SEMI-WEIGHTED KEYS
It has 88 full-size keys, which are similar in size and weight to those on an acoustic piano. This full-sized piano also comes with sensitive touch response/ universal sustain pedal, so you can experience playing the instrument like never before!
This digital piano is equipped with advanced real sound intelligent chip technology that claims to simulate and reproduces the sound of a real piano more realistically.
1000 TONES, 300 RHYTHMS, 300 DEMOS
You can enjoy playing this high-quality digital piano with 1000 different electric piano tones such as acoustic and electric pianos, organs, strings, vibraphone, and harpsichords.
The standard piano tone is good if you’re a piano student and the multiple other tones allow you to explore various sounds of the world. Adding a rhythm to your music is not only fun but also helps you practice keeping time. It also has a built-in metronome.
Use the demo songs to learn or play along with your favorite songs. This, in itself, is learning and good for the piano student.
The Rinkmo has 128-note maximum note polyphony. This is a high amount, especially for a budget digital pianos or keyboards.
Polyphony refers to the combined amount of notes that can sound at once. It takes into account sustained sounds and if the polyphony is low, the instrument will cut off sounds when it reaches its limit – You shouldn’t go for anything less than 64, so 128 polyphony is an excellent feature.
For your reference, in general, budget keyboards have a polyphony count of about 64. So, the Rinkmo offering 128 is really good.
GOOD FOR LEARNING OR TEACHING!
This piano has a dual keyboard that divides the keys into two areas, one for teaching mode and one for playing mode. It also comes with 300 demo songs, a metronome, and an interactive function to stimulate your creativity.
If you are a piano teacher, this is a good lightweight budget option to transport. (24.8 pounds)
A sustain pedal is essential for piano practice – building good habits and producing a nice smooth tone. The Rimko comes with a high-quality pedal that mimics the natural feel and response of a sustain pedal of an acoustic piano.
Extended Function Design-USB/MIDI allows you to connect this piano to your computer so you can expand its capabilities by downloading new apps like music lessons, games or music mixing software such as a DAW (digital audio workstation).
The Rinkmo has two built-in speakers (15W). Connect headphones to play in silence without disturbing others or if you’re a night owl like me – you can play away to your heart’s content!
The level of features and the level of quality the Rimko E-115 offers are good for the price. The keys are semi-weighted and touch-sensitive which is better than non-weighted if you are looking for something to mimic an acoustic piano to build up good playing habits.
