Does it only come in black? The P155 comes in mahogany/silver...I think the silver looks awful, but the mahogany looks alright. Is there a mahogany color stand that would match it?

Thanks.


Oh, and does the P155 have three pedal capability?

I think L140 is only black or silver. My mahogany P155 looks alright on a black L140 stand, since the sides of a piano (and the area around the keyboard) are black.

As for pedals - P155 has only two pedal inputs, you can plug in only two pedals.

No but you can add 3 pedals to most DPs as described in this thread. Will probably cost you a few hundred bucks, probably makes more sense to buy a console if you really want 3 pedals.

Is it necessary to have all three pedals to learn piano? I'll be taking lessons soon and it would be...unfortunate if I bought a $1200 DP that turned out to be rather useless because it lacked two pedals.

There are three pedals on an acoustic piano, yes? So if one of the pedals on the P155 is the sustain, what would the other pedal output be used for?

No, you don't need 3 pedals. Unless you plan to go far with your studies, you probably won't ever use anything other than the damper pedal.

Yes there are 3 pedals on an acoustic grand. Many DPs allow you to program what the pedal inputs are used for. So, for example, you could use it as the una corda pedal. I'd enjoy your P155 and your lessons, and forget about the pedals.

Quote Daniel M: "Is it necessary to have all three pedals to learn piano?"

Nope. Absolutely not. Just the ordinary damper pedal on the right (for sustain) and the left pedal (for playing softer) is all you need. Even the normal one on the left isn´t that important. That is, it´s better to learn to play softly without it as much as you can.

On some grands and a few acoustics the middle pedal has a different sustain function. But on most acoustics, its just to dampen the tones extra in order to study quietly. Obviously you won´t need that on a DP.

quote 2 "what would the other pedal output be used for?"
Check the specs.
