Morodeine and wouter79 - yes, the bunnies love to chew wires, so that's the piano where I practice without a pedal as an extra challenge (my main instrument used to be harpsichord anyway). The CP4 is in a bunny-free room elsewhere. (The white bunny has a sister but she's not such a music fan.)

Now with the addition of my MP11, I may have them play on that more than the other two. The acoustics are nice and good experience, but the MP11 feels better than the pianos I have at the school.

Here is my Kawai CN24 in the dining room. All of the digital pianos I had in the past were always placed in this same location. The bench is home made and I always used that ever since I started playing, need to replace the padding its getting flat.

That was two Evaporators. In winter, only 5-20% improvement in the humidity of 40%.

I don't think I've ever posted a picture of the digital I bought a couple of months ago for my humid summer house. Although the acoustics of the room is not ideal, I got used to it quite quickly, and after adjusting a few settings, its sound and touch are not so different from those of my Yamaha upright at home.

And no, it didn't come with a matching bench frown

From what I was told, less fluctuation is best. If you can, keep it within a 10% window from 45-55% and no more no less. Stability is best. If you can deploy a whole room dehumidifier, than it is best to do so and keep the room as close to 48% all year round as possible.

Glad you`ve accepted The Black One into the family; I rather thought you`d like it eventually!I wom`t post mine on here; I reckon everybody`s seen it at least a dozen times elsewhere . . . .

Thanks, I'll experiment throughout the year and if I can maintain a suitable environment, an acoustic maybe on the horizon next year.
