It's an interesting idea, however I would strongly recommend play-testing any instrument you decide to purchase, and perhaps bringing your laptop to test how well (i.e. how expressive) the MIDI output truly is. Honestly speaking, if you were not sat

Off hand I can think that Bach reserved E-flat for more reverent things since three flats can symbolize the holy trinity. There may be other symbolic associations with number of flats or sharps etc. I think point 5. is a big one. Even after tuning s

"Still sounds good" is utterly irrelevant. I think the only way you should pay anything for it is if you both play it and have it inspected by a good tech beforehand. How much are you willing to spend on some degree of rebuilding? The ide

I've played on the CDP230, and it's BARELY passable. I'd never choose to buy it, personally. The Privias are a much better action and instrument, and I'd probably recommend that over the Roland too for those on a tight budget. For the extra $$ it wi
