Both are quality actions but the differences between them are profound in design. First the Kawai action is merely a duplicate part for part of a traditional wood action. The WNG on the other hand is a radical and bold new design that was engineered

I have an FA-08 and am really pleased with it. I also have a MOX8 and a Korg SV1-73. I like the FA-08 better over all then either of them. I use the SV1 for small stages and its EP's. The MOX8 I rarely play at all anymore, its purpose is now a backup

That's the thing Ben. Obviously a longer lesson is going to be more beneficial for most as you can cover more ground but I'm not convinced its the answer. Maybe it's the best way to use these kind of books though, if the material is easier then you n

They're very different keyboards. I think the answer to your question is something like this: The P155 is essentially a digital _piano_. The "GH" keyboard action is a good one (IMHO), and the piano sounds are fine. The sounds cannot be

Well... In that case do, pretty much, what it feels right. A composer, usually, has the tools and knowledge and experience to finish a work. This is the "true mastery" of composition and not the muse coming over anytime she feels like it.

If you get a CP40 you'll just look at all the blank buttons on the case, features in the manual you don't have and wish you'd bought a CP4. Yamaha kind of rubs it in. The CP40 action is GH, same as the P255. CP4 is NW-GH (with three sensors instead o
