Slight thread hijack here, but still related to Kawai sustain mechanisms. I'm having problems in my K-500 with squeaking from one of the four plastic / nylon pivot bushings that support the rail which raises the dampers away from the strings. I've h

The only answer she would give when I asked why I couldn't try it out was that it was new and not to be played. End of story. Didn't seem to matter that I was a potential buyer. It was a work day that day, but I was dressed respectably I felt for

Yes, the MP11 has the best action out of the lot, but is heavier than the OP's current board at 71 lbs. The MP7 is lighter at 46 lbs., with an action superior to the NP2, and on par with that of the RD800 and CP4. However, the organ-related feature

Welcome. I don't know which models of Bechstein I played about 4-5 yrs ago, they were both smaller than the B208. But what I did notice was a pronounced string break - though neither piano was well prepared (nor anything else in the store). It may

thanks Craig. This helps a lot. The piano I am working on is sN 6126. The area from e3-c4 was restrung with puresound wire to help with bad partials. It did a good job but now the wire is breaking. I want to try the original sizes again but there a

Sorry to hear you had this problem. This is a known issue with some K-200 pianos. A supplier modified the material for a pedal rod end without telling Kawai, and they are not strong enough. This is a warranty problem, and the part will be replaced

petes1, The MP11 is undeniably a great board, but it does not meet the OP's requirements for weight/portability. The MP11 is a beast. With that being said, the kawai MP7 is also an excellent piano and might be a worthy choice for considerat

The CP4 is more comparable to the RD800 in many ways. The action is heavier like a grand piano, I think maybe slightly shallower so maybe a fraction of a hair faster, but the feeling of escapement is not as realistic, actually I wonder if the NW-GH

I love my RD800 and consider it one of the best purchases that I've ever made of any kind, but having said that, I'm going to muddy your waters and recommend that you not neglect the Kawai MP11 as it seems to hit your targets well. It has one of the
