Review

A good blend of features, pricing, and quality is usually offered by Casio & Yamaha, but even Williams pianos seem to be competing with them in the “budget keyboard” segment.

  1. The Williams Allegro is okay for the price, but there are complaints about its pedal and the speakers are also just about okay. The pedal is inconsistent and of of low-quality, despite it having touch-sensitive keys.

    However, if you’re a beginner, go for it (its cheap) and can be a good piano for practice, but intermediate and expert level players should look at something better. If you are looking for a good practice piano and don’t wanna spend to much. this is probably one of the best starter pianos you can find on the site.
