Hi guys.
I mostly play jazz and rock'n roll. I play in different constallations, and have a P-80. But I'm quite dissapointed with it. Not the keyaction (which is superb) but the soundsamplings. They are so lifeless, if you compare them with for example Yamaha P-200, but that one is on the other side extremely heavy. Anyone else than me that has thought about it?
So all you guys that are thinking about buying a P-80, don't do it (that's my opinion!).
I'm thinking of buying a new one, a Yamaha P120, or a Roland FP-3. Which one do you guys think is the best? Do you know if it in the "facts" is any differences in the soundsamplings between the P-80 and the P-120?

Yes, I'm disappointed with the P80. The action is ok; but to my ears, the piano sound IS NOT GOOD. I like the Roland and Yamaha actions....but I think the Kurzweil piano sound is the VERY BEST!
