Hi again...

I was looking at the Yamaha YDP223 and the Korg EC350 but now the Yamaha PF500 has really caught my attention. It seems that for a few more hundred over the Korg you get alot more features and more realistic playing (compared to acoustic). It is amazing how my budget keeps wanting to GROW!!! LOL!

Anyway would you all say that if I could afford it, that it would be worth it to get the PF500? Is the quality and sound and touch that much better than the others or not? My biggest priority is genuine feel and sound (as much as possible with digital, that is). I really don't want to go over $2000 so the PF500 maxes me out.

Thanks!

I love mine. Got a really great deal, but went over my original budget too. I'm a classical player and it has an excellent feel and sound in my opinion. I feel I will not need to change over for many years-I can grow with this one and it is really well built. So worth it yes for me.

I feel lucky too-have spent hours playing even in the short time since I got it and am loving it more and more. It even looks good too. Got a run-out special-$1800 (Australian ) discount off rrp......because it was the demo model, but in mint condition at the back of the shop-everyone else preferred cabinet type pianos so I lucked in. Good luck with shopping for yours.
