Hamzer 61-key Keyboard Review

Written by: Joshofwestern

If you are in the market for a beginner keyboard, for either yourself or a family member. The Hamzer 61-key keyboard could be a great place to start. This keyboard really is designed with the beginner in mind. It comes equipped with everything you need to jump in, and start learning. Including headphones, microphone, a bench, and a stand. All at a relatively low cost. So if you are interested in learning piano, but don’t want to sink all of your funds in just yet, consider looking into the Hamzer 61-key keyboard.

 

Features:

  • 61 standard sized piano keys.
  • Built-in speaker.
  • Record & playback capabilities for creating your own music.
  • Transparent key labeling stickers are included to make learning easier.
  • Wide range of effects and features to edit tones, percussion, chord timbre and sustain.
  • Accessories included.

What I like about it:

  • Portability.

The Hamzer 61-key keyboard is compact. It really does make it easy to pack it up, and take it anywhere. lessons, practice, or simply moving it around in the house. It is designed with portability in mind.

  • Surprisingly good built-in speakers.

When it comes to budget, beginner keyboards, typically the built-in speakers are nothing to write home about. And while the Hamzer built in speaks won’t blow your socks off, they are actually surprisingly good. You wouldn’t expect that with a beginner keyboard.

  • Smooth key action.

While the keys on this keyboard are not weighted, they do feel amazingly smooth. You won’t have to worry about a note playing when you barely touch them. They feel really responsive, and react nicely.

What I don’t like about it:

  • Sound quality is a little off.

While ultimately, this will not effect your ability to learn too much. At times, the standard piano setting can sound a bit off. Understanding that this is a digital keyboard, sometimes the sound is a bit ‘too’ digital.

  • The microphone, and headphones feel a bit cheap.

This may sound like I am being a bit harsh. But the headphones are really not wonderful. You may find yourself ditching them and using your own. The microphone is serviceable for a beginner, but don’t expect any high-quality recordings with it.

Overall thoughts:

The Hamzer 61-key keyboard is a really great option for those who simply want to get their toes wet in piano learning. The sturdy build, and inclusion of everything you need to begin learning is a huge bonus. I also really like the addition of the transparent stickers to help you label your keys. This is a huge help in the early stages.

Of course, it is hard to get too nit-picky when it comes to budget, beginner keyboards. I do think that the Hamzer could use some room for improvement in the peripheral area. I would like to see the headphones and microphone that come included be upgraded even just a tiny bit.

Overall, this piano is a pretty good option if you don’t want to sink a lot of money into learning piano basics, and if portability is a factor for you. The Hamzer 61-key keyboard will give you everything you need to get started.
