What do you think of roll-up pianos. The ones I've tried are hard on your fingers - really have to press down and the sound isn't that great. This was a few years ago when they first came out.

I thought that it might be good to have around to use in the evening or even early in the morning. Don't want to disturb my neighbors.

It would great to live somewhere where it dosen't matter when you practice. We can dream. Thanks for your input. smile

If you're referring to those plastic roll ups, they're junk, period. Don't waste your money or your time researching this, they're junk. It's a novelty item, a junk novelty item.

Step 1, buy a digital piano
Step 2, buy a set of ear phones
Step 3, profit.

You can set yourself up for a few hundred bucks and be set for practicing anytime.

Roll up pianos suck, even the good ones. I'd rather go with a smaller keyboard that has really keys. Something like this, Clicky
