Re: Stage Piano upgrade from Yamaha CP300

That's a tad 'ex cathedra' CW.

The CP5 isn't a real piano. It's a... er... CP5. The point (for me) is whether or not it's an instrument I can play music on. For me it's the sweet spot of what's available as a gigging tool just now. But I'd like to try the MP10.

The escapement issue is not a make/break thing for me. It's nice to have, sure, but just one of the many considerations.

That said...

... every time I've tried any of the 'competition' since getting the CP5 I've come away with the feeling that I'd like it more if I hadn't now learned to play a CP5, if you see what I mean. In other words, if I swapped my CP5 for an RD700, after a few months I wouldn't enjoy playing a Yammy because I'd have become attuned to the Roland touch/sound.

If I'm right about this then the possibility of any sort of objective comparison between manufacturers/models seems to fly out of the window. It's not just that it's 'personal', but it's bound up with your recent experience. The only solution is to get them all! But how do you sell that one to the wife?

Cheers, Ian.
