I bought my EP-10 for $25. It had obviously been gigged around very heavily and clearly abused. However, the build on the thing is fantastic. Aside from some dirty contacts, the piano held up very well.

Real wood construction with tolex sides and top cover give the piano a nice cosmetic appearance. In terms of sound, it's easy to tell that this is one of the first-generation electric pianos in which the sounds are created by a chip rather than hammers and metal tines--The sounds are quite primitive but work as good approximations of the Rhodes and Clavinets.

Overall not bad for its day, though a Casio will give a more realistic sound if realism is your thing. If you find one cheap, pick it up.

Comments About the Sounds:
This is a fairly primitive electric piano. The lower octave tends tosound a bit grainy on the piano tones, more like a buzz noise than a piano.Higher octaves sound okay. If you're striving for realistic soundingpiano with velocity, etc. this one's not the way to go, try the EP-9.
