Hi all,

I was just wondering if anyone had any opinions on buying used Kawai DPs? A local shop has both an MP6 and an ES7 at a good price and I was wondering if anyone has any opinion on buying one of these compared to a new casio PX350 (or any other sub $1000 piano)? Unfortunately, the PX360 isn't available in Canada yet and the exchange rate is terrible so buying in the US is less of an option. The local shop doesn't carry Casio and doesn't rate them very highly. I did play both the mp6/es7 and they felt fine to my unpracticed hands. Certainly better than the low-end yamaha/roland pianos in the shop.

I am looking to get a good ~5 yrs of use out of the piano before asking the kids if they are still interested in playing. The need for a stand, amplifier and monitors isn't a big deal to me. I am leaning to the mp6 over the ES7 because it would be more easily transported to our summer cottage and my nephew (a frequent visitor to our house) has shown interest in making 'music' but not in the traditional, sit down at the piano sense.

Thanks
Graham

If you're buying in Canada you might want to check the costco.ca website. To date I have bought two Casio pianos from there (a CDP-230 to start out with and now my current AP-650 when it went on sale about a month before Christmas) and I've been more than happy with the pianos and the prices and the fact that they were delivered to my door too.
