Hi Guys,
Thanks for all your help on my previous thread. I am going to see the Yamaha P85 and the Casio Px330 tomorrow.
Can I use the stand and the 2 pedals from my Roland HP1700 with any of the above 2 pianos?
Just a thought...since they are all digital I figured maybe it's possible? Thanks.

Peter

The P-85 comes with a pedal in the box.

I would suggest you get the dedicated stand for the P-85.

But, if you plan on using it with an X-Stand, make sure it is double braced model, and ask for the two adaptors that fit into the P-85's underside.

As Martin said in another post, the sound of the P-85 on a table, is not quite as good as it can be when placed on a stand.

What about the Casio? Could I use the HP1700 Stand with that?

I'm not sure about the Casio...just measure the stand and compare it with the PX-330's dimensions...the Roland's pedal polarity may be different, so check if it can be reversed in the Casio.

PX-330 Demo:

Casio website info:

Manual:

I think the Roland's pedals will work in the P-85, although adapting it to fit the stand might be tricky. It's optional dedicated stand is very sturdy.

If the pedals connect with a 1/4 inch phono jack then likely they can be used. The Yamaha may come with one pedal. Very nice pedals only cost $25.

If the stand is an adjustable "X Stand" then it is generic. But I think the HP1700 is built into a case that is made to simulate the look of an acoustic console piano. The others are stage pianos
