Digital Pianos - Synths & Keyboards
I would echo Jay's recommendation about the RD-800. I don't own one, but I have played it and its action feels somewhat heavier than my V-Grand, so that may be to your liking. Tony

I have yet to play any Physis instruments, however I believe an MP11 + Pianoteq combination will provide a much better action and a more realistic sound than any V-Piano or Physis product. Kind regards, James x

Is this the serial number? If so, this piano is from 1920, not 1929!

I don't know where you are in the world, but please seek out an RD-800 to try. Turn it on and scroll to Patch #34 "Studio Grand" and just play. Let us know how you like it. Jay

I don't know. I sang a lot of classical, played quite a bit of it. I started collecting some CDs. Then I realized I couldn't stand listening to a large chunk of classical music for any extended periods. I guess that's true of most music in genera

I was surprised to find the hammer butt screws are in the back of the rail! Never seen that before. Must be how all the old pianos were? That will make my life a little more difficult, I think.

I had the cp4,and have the rd800 and mp11. No one of these is light for an heavy keybed. These keybeds are good,and feeling about these are different if you look all the posts wrote about them. I just can say some words about my own feeling: -i fin

So, I just learned (almost the hard way) that the damper pedal arm is screwed into the action body on the left. Took me a minute to figure out why the action wouldnt come out. Is this normal, or only seen on older pianos? Videos I have seen showed pe

Digital Pianos - Synths & Keyboards
What's the high end of your budget? Yamaha's N series (N1 - N3) have the closest thing to a real grand piano action because is is comprised of a real piano action. Kawai has a few models (CA95 and MP11) with their 'Grand Feel' action which emulates

Hi, Opus Maximus -- a very rich and expressive reading of this wonderful late sonata. I especially liked the flow and sweep of the final movement; the fugue was thoroughly convincing throughout, and the final page was appropriately joyous and yea-s

yes the cheek blocks and adjusting are the issue. Yes the action was pulled to take out a pen cap, that had fallen in probably years ago, as my piano is CLOSED up and not open for such accidents. But just pulling the action forward should not create

I contacted Jim Christopher in San Mateo and he had me silently depress the lowest C, hold it down, and then play the clacking notes again. They disappeared while holding down the C. Now the regular tech is coming back in 20 minutes...When actions ar

So here we are almost in 2015. Lots of digital pianos out there. Let's start by forgetting all of the ones under $500. I am looking for a digital piano to practice on when the family is sleeping. My 6'3" Pramberger JP-185 is a little loud Do

Thanks MM. I have no doubt about learning to play piano, just that improvising and playing jazz along with others always seemed kind of "mystical", something I always thought was intuitive for special musical minds. I looked into chord voic
