I also have an electronic piano keyboard that is still perfectly fine. And my sister still has the traditional upright piano that we all learnt to play on when we were children!

There are many promotions on online sites that sell cheap musical instruments, but those are often not professionally made and not good quality at all. For example, a cheap guitar or ukulele can go out of tune after just a few strums and so need constant retuning.
