My missus bought me one of these as a surprise as a pitch bend mod wheel with 4 rotary knobs solution, so I can control my synths a bit more in real time on the fly. I can put it on top of my Celviano

I was so impressed by the keys as well though. Who needs grand feel, GHS, PHA-50, this is the holy grail. I am going to get an 88 key version and sell the Casio. It blows all the premium concert actions away. I wager, this action may have been a bit closer to the old pianos of centuries ago anyway, lighter with shallower key press,

So don't forget about the acorn premium concert action for some of Mozart and stuff around that era.

In truth, no, the keys kinda suck, but it will do the job for what I want it to do, the knobs, mod and pitch bend laugh
Self taught since June 2014.
Books: Barratt classic piano course book 1,2,3. Humphries Piano handbook, various others.
Casio Celviano AP 450 & various peripherals.

Nice little find!

I gather if features both USB and standard MIDI connectors too, so can be easily hooked up to a VPC1 to add pitchbend and modulation wheel functionality, as requested here.

Employed by Kawai Japan, however the opinions I express are my own.
