Quality budget USB/midi piano keyboard for my son?
February 12, 2014 11:14 AM Subscribe
My son's piano keyboard broke, it was 10+ years old. His birthday is coming up, and I would like to get him a piano keyboard with midi/usb (for making music) for his birthday. It can't be too expensive - I'm thinking $80-200 range, but a little outside is fine as well - but I don't want to get him a piece of junk either. I could use some advice, since I don't know much about keyboards and would like to keep it a surprise without picking something silly.

It doesn't have to be a full-size keyboard, but it can't be too small and the keys should be full-size. I know that he makes music on his computer, he uses something called Logic, so it should have usb/midi for that purpose. Does anyone have some recommendations? I was searching Amazon, but a lot of the budget keyboards do not seem to have usb/midi and have tiny keys. Touch sensitivity would be a plus, but it might be difficult to find in this price range. Thank you!
