No, I have not bought another piano,( smile )but I did get to play an older Kawai KG2 at a church I visited this morning.

The piano was nicely tuned and the action felt great… not too heavy and not too light. The piano had a very nice tone too.

If it were for sale (cheap) I’d certainly buy it and add it to my collection… smile

Yes, I do have a problem with PAS(piano acquisition syndrome)… not sure what to do about it.

Is the KG2 the predecessor to the RX2? If so, that's interesting because I bought an RX2 on Friday (a 2008 model). I still have to get it tuned, but I love the extremely responsive action. I certainly have the worst kind of PAS smile

Yes, Sam, the KG2 is the older model/predecessor to the RX2. I have not had the pleasure of playing an RX2... I honestly don't get out much for various reasons.

Congratulations on your latest addition to your piano family! smile

Thanks Rick! I think my C3 is still my favorite of the bunch. The Baldwin has a wonderful tone but it's just too heavy an action for me at this point, and the Kawai is a bit too mellow and doesn't seem to give me as much range as the Yamaha. Part of that might be because it's a bit shorter though (5'10" vs 6'1")

Rickster -- you're not allowed to have PAS -- I'm so jealous of your C7! I practice on one at a church, and I'm completely in love with it.

Thanks, LadyChen!

Yes, my C7 is a magnificant instrument!

We had a distant relative to visit several months ago, who played the piano (well); she played my C7 and I couldn't believe how good it sounded.

It is amazing how different a piano sounds a few feet away, when someone else is playing it... smile

Good luck with the C3 prospect!

Rick
