"You Are Not Going To Do Better In This Price Range"

FACTS: I have owned digital pianos since 1986, I have owned six Yamaha models, one Roland model and one Privia model. For many years I was a resolute, die-hard Yamaha fan. I researched this latest buy for months. OPINIONS: Yamahas and Privias are good for work with bands because their sound is generally sharper / more biting. Yamahas can be made to sound reasonably full for solo work with EQ. Rolands sound fantastic, unless you want it to actually sound like a real piano. The two strengths of this Kawai model: (1) when played alone, it sounds like there is a real piano in the room; (2) the action is by far the best you are going to find for under $1200. I have been a skeptic for 23 years, and for the first time I can say that the action on this board is better than the action on some real acoustic pianos that I have used. (I said "some") So if those are the two strengths, just what the --- are you looking for anyway? OBSERVATION: You know how sometimes after buying some equipment, you still look at ads for other instruments? I stopped looking, cold, after getting this board.
Professional, I played my first gig for pay in 1968
