Yesterday I could go to a music shop. I tried everything (Yamaha CP33, P-95, CP-1, CP-5,
CP-50, Roland RD300, RD700, V-Piano, Korg SP-250, SV1, Fatar Numa, Numa Piano, Numa Nero,
etc), except the Casio PX that was not possible to find (I finally found a shop where they
have one so I will try it later).
Talking about keyboard action, none of them was
satisfying for me (I would have probably taken the CP33 or the SP-250 if I did not have
anything currently). As I said I don't care about the internal sounds as I am using
My question should be: how can great manufacturers like Yamaha or
Roland say that their new pianos are "the same as an acoustic piano" when the keys are way
too soft compared to any acoustic piano? Is it really what players want? At the beginning
of the 20th century the pianos had a lighter action, which was great, but later bigger
rooms required harder actions for more loudness. So today the acoustic piano actions are
pretty hard and you need a similarly hard keyboard to keep used to it (or, at least, it
helps a lot).
But even if I had full budget I could not get anything today. I knew I
should have kept the P-90
