I spend a lot of time sitting in hotel rooms and would like to have a light DP to carry with me so I can continue to practice. Any suggestions? Obviously, fully weighted keys would be required and reasonable weight. How about the Casio CP-120?

Thanks.

You will get more responses on the Digital Piano Forum next door.

The Casio CDP-120 is very basic in both its features but also in its technology as it is based on models from 7-8 years ago. I would step up a little for better action, sound engine, and responsiveness. The current frontrunners for portable, weighted and affordable are Yamaha P105B & Casio Privia PX-150. IMO, the minimum would be a Yamaha P35B.

I think Sam's suggestion about the Casio is a good one...

I have a Casio Privia 310, and it is a superb, inexpensive digital. I paid $599 (plus tax) at Guitar center. It is light weight, has decent built-in speakers, and the weighted keys feel okay. And, it sounds very good when used with a Keyboard amp or PA system.

My grandchildren and I have pounded on the Casio pretty hard, and it has held up well (keeps them off my acoustics smile )

Good luck!

Rick

In bang for the buck and bang for the pound? The Privia easily.

Do you travel by air or car? If by air, and if your budget is flexible (= big), I was always intrigued by this Infinite Response keyboard that folds in half for easier portability. Here's a review:

I posted this question on the DP forum next door and they have been very helpful as well. The Vax was suggested, but too expensive for me. I travel by air (my second career is as a pilot) but don't have to deal with security or baggage issues.
