Hi there, I am a long time lurker in this forum. I have also posted my question in reply to another members thread, so forgive me for doubling up, and posting a new thread. i didnt see my question coming up in the forum listing. Just a little background on my question. I have returned to piano playing after almost a ten year break and I am hoping to sit a trinity diploma in June 2014. I have chronic tendinitis, but I still manage to play for 3-5 hours a day, with stretching and using a glycerine tinitrate cream.

We have an upright old KAWI, which I totally adore, it's a yucky brown piano scratches and has taken a good beating during its lifetime as a school piano. The action on it is really good for me and without it I don't think I could play for the length of time I need. We also have a Yamaha CLP 130, which is a nightmare to play on. We live in an apt, so having a good digital really would help me as I could practise in silence.

We went piano shopping and I have found two models that I am seriously considering, the Roland LX-15 and the Kawai CA95. I really like both pianos, and there is a sale with 21% off that ends tomorrow. I really like the Roland, and I gave it a good going over the shop yesterday for almost an hour. The man in the shop was really great and he showed me the touch setting and I found that turning it down to 22% was the touch setting that was best for me. I also have to admit that it looks like a beautiful piano! Which is a bit of a seller for me. The kawai is wonderful from a touch perspective, it is also cheaper by $15000! I know that I am paying extra for looks, but it is nice. I just don't want to make a mistake, it's a lifetime buy, and as all of you know digitals have an almost next to nothing resale value.

Can anyone add their two cents to this, would love to know what you think. Thanks Jen

Jen,

Quite honestly, you would get more detailed information and opinions if you posted this in the Digital Forum.

This forum focuses on acoustic pianos, rather than digital keyboards.

Good Luck!

It's much easier to bash a Steinway than it is to play one.

I wasn't sure if it was a difference in currencies or a typo...$15,000 difference? $1,500?

+1 for the LX-15 for sound and looks (depending on price confused smile ), but you'll find owners of both in the digital forum next door.

You can repost or it is easy to request the moderator move this thread.

Good luck in your search!
