There's no reason why the key feel of the CLP120 will be better than the FP2 because of its size.

There's no definitive answer here, some prefer Yamaha feel some prefer Roland feel. You'll have to try them both to decide.

Just to let you know, if you want a piano that looks like the CLP120, but with multisampling, then this is the CLP130, the next model.

Just one last question... this is the last one, I swear :p

I was thinking on buying a stand for the FP2... Somebody told me that music123.com has a stand for the FP5 and that it can also be used with a FP2... is this true?... The Roland webpage says both FP have the same serial number for their stands (therefore it's the same stand), but the one on music123 doesn't have any serial numer nor picture, so I don't know if this is the same stand... any help?

-Jon

Sounds like the fp-2 is worth a look, we seem to warm to rolands sound more. Found the price to be around 775, great, but then the roland stand is a 135??? Was looking at the Roland HP102, though started to dismiss due to price, though adding up the stage piano route does make much difference. The other thing is the stage piano makes better use of space for us in our small home. Just some rants, sorry.

Take Care,

J

Another question... (Yes another one :p )

Are X-style and Z-style keyboard stands designed to be played sitting like a piano too? because I've always seen people using them standing... will I be able to use a Z-style stand as a normal piano stand?...

-Jon

Yes you can use X/Z style stands for sitting down.

I'd recommend the Quiklok WS550 workstation stand instead, it is much more practical in all ways.

I need a digital to practice at night. It's very important for me because I only have time at night (when the wife and kids asleep). Last month, I got a great deal: bought a brand new Roland HP1 for only $400. However, when my sister saw the HP, she loves it, mainly because it's dirt cheap but it looks so nice. So she took the HP-1 away.

I had to shop for another digital piano and it's kinda hard to decide which one to get. I narrow it down to the Roland FP or Yamaha P90/120. I like the FP5 but it is way too much for me, especially for a spare one. I like the Yamaha P120's touch and sound but I don't like its look.

Finally, I came accross a local store which have an opened box FP3. Opened but barely used because it is a piano store. I guess that when people went to the piano stores, they mainly look for the acoustic pianos so not too many people tried it. I paid $1000.0 for this unit. It came with the stand/speaker mounts/a pairs of speakers/and a bench. I went to guitarcenter and bought the Sony MDR7506. LIFE'S NEVER BE BETTER GUYS. I love it.

PS: I haven't tried other sounds on the FP3 yet but I don't see any difference in Piano between the FP3 and FP5 and it's all I need .

Lighter is cool, but trust me, you're going to regret not getting the FP5, which has SO many more sounds. I just wish they would've left out the "internal speakers" thing. I mean, come on, who uses those? Like I'm going to use the internal speakers at a gig. I guess they were trying to appeal to a beginning pianist who got a synth because the price of a real piano was out of range.
