Hi Guys...

Sorry if this is treading over old ground...but, I had just about decided that I was going to trade in my casio PX100 for a Yamaha p120.

Then today I went and tried out a Roland FP2 (because the shop didn't have a p120 to demo) and now I am totally confused...grrr

I am not sure whether I really like it or not?

Bonus points

1. It is very light to carry
2. Some of the piano sounds were good
3. key action wasn't too light
4. Polyphony
5. Audio outs

Minus points

1. Visually I think I prefer the look of the P120
2. I prefer a heavy action like my CLP170

does anyone own a FP2...or has anyone who owns/owned a p120 sold it for a FP2?

cheers guys

I think I have answered my own question...played on a p120 for the first time today ...its bigger than the FP2 but, there is no comparison in the way it feels and sounds to me

Yep...its gonna be a p120 \:\)

I just bought the Roland FP-5 and love all the sounds, especially piano. The Session Partner is great, too, though I still haven't figured out how to use it 100%. Does anyone here have a Roland FP-5?
