Hello
A friend offered me this digital piano with only 9 months of use
http://www.synthony.com/vintage/pro2.html
with pedal and stand included for 700€, the only trouble is the display doesn´t work
( I don´t really know it is in fact important). I am just beginning in learnig piano and i was thinking about buying a Casio Privia PX100 to me, that is but the cheapest thing that I have seen in 88 keys with weighted keyboard... my friend said me that the new piano costs about 2000€ in the shop....What must i do....the Privia... or the GEM?

Thanks

P.D. Excuse me for my english. I´m spanish and my english really sucks :rolleyes:

RealPiano Pro 2 is an excellent stage piano with a piano sound which is 10 times better than what you will ever get from that Casio thing. RealPiano models are using a rather convincing physical modelling of the behaviour of a true acoustic piano.

Regarding Spanish-English, I tried using Babelfish's Systran engine for an English translation of Spanish texts but the result was totally incomprehensible. So, sometimes not so easy either being a non-Spanish speaker...

€700 is a very good price. About one third of what it used to cost.

Oye Sibelius, y el piano sirve, aún con la pantalla jodida?
Si sirve y cuando lo prendes ya puedes tocar el sonido de piano, estás del otro lado, pero deberías de averiguar en cuánto sale reparar ese daño... y qué fue lo que lo ocasionó, porque según la página que pusiste, esos pianos... ahora sí que aguantan un piano!
Pruébalo primero, y luego ya decides. A mí me dá la impresión que Gem es una marca un poco "oscura" en cuanto reparaciones y situaciones de ésas, así que ten cuidado.
Cualquier cosa pregunta que aquí te echamos la mano.

Hombre, mi amigo se aconstumbro a tocar de esa manera, si que funciona lo unico que hay ciertos trucos al cambiar de sonido al no poderlo visualizar....respecto a este teclado he encontrado muy poca documentacion en Inet en comparacion con marcas como ROLAND, YAMAHA, KURZWEIL...de hecho he sido incapaz de encontrar una pagina donde lo vendan y salga el precio....si sabes de alguna dimelo plis.

Saludos y gracias

Mira, te encontré el teléfono y dirección de casa matriz de GEM en Madrid, no sé si ya tengas esa información:

GENERALMUSIC DISTRIBUCION IBERICA S.L.
Pol. Ind. P-29 C/Calibre, 55
28400 Collado Villalba - Madrid
SPAIN
Tel: +34 (1) 8500731
Fax: +34 (1) 8504998
E-mail: generalmusic@telefonica.net

Cualquier cosa que quieras checar precios en otros países de Europa, la dirección de la compañía es:
www.generalmusic.com
General Music es una compañía italiana.
Yo creo que con ellos puedes checar precios, qué tiendas de instrumentos en España los distribuyen y cuánto sale la reparación.

Muchas gracias x tu colaboracion....en la pagina de GEM ya he estado y soprendentemente no aparece el modelo de mi amigo en su catalogo...debe ser algo antiguo.

A ti qu ete parece, hago mejor compra o me busco un Privia nuevo?

Gracias

Pues mira, sería mejor que compres el Casio porque estás empezando, tiene el plus de que es nuevo, y ya después cuando avances te compras un piano digital mejor, o incluso un piano acústico.
Lo que te recomiendo en general es que escojas una marca que te pueda dar soporte fácilmente por cualquier desperfecto, como Casio. Te sugiero también los Yamaha. Yo tengo un P60, y me costó nuevo el equivalente a un poco más de 700 euros y es un muy buen piano de práctica con buen sonido y excelente acción en el teclado.
