Hi I have a Yamaha Clavinova which was given to me. It's approx 8 years old.
My question is...
Is it a good idea to have it serviced?
It sounds OK, but I think the keys feel a bit too clunky.
I'm not sure where to go for an "engineer" if that's the correct terminology. laugh
I live in Portsmouth Hampshire.

Some of the key actions were a bit clunky. If the central keys are worse than the ones at either end of the board, it`s wear and tear. But if it ain`t broke . . . play it till it is!

Because it's a Clavinova I would ask Yamaha. There are stories of them supporting older models of their DP's at reasonable prices.

A quick Google also found this.
