CLP-525 and Kawai C-35 are not in the same league. You need to look at the 535. With regards to Roland, a comparable model is probably the HP504? Also, CLP-525 is still on two sensors (the 535 has 3). There is a nice youtube video by Pianoman Chuck

Thanks for the tip about the touch curve—I looked at the online manual to see how this works, and will try adjusting it when I go back to the dealer's. I'll see if they have an MP7, too. I would like to try out Pianoteq, but I will have to get a lap

I've played three Brodmann 187s, and really liked two of them (the third was voiced brighter than I like). I think the extra length of the Brodmann 187 is a significant advantage over the C2X, at least for the tone at eh bass end. I have no experie

I'm surprised nobody mentioned Fandrich & Sons: http://www.fandrich.com/ They have continued to refine the Fandrich action that goes into some of their upright pianos. I just tuned one recently, and it was amazing.

A longer speaking length can actually be detrimental in the low bass. A shorter speaking length and longer back scale (the length of strings between the bridge and the hitch pins at the bottom of the piano) can produce a deeper sounding bass than a l
