And so the hunt for a new piano begins smile

I’m starting to think I’m enjoying the search for a piano and the purchase, more than actually having one. It’s a curse.

Now, if only NAMM was tomorrow....

The sound. The action was great but I wasn’t feeling the sound honestly.

You only had it for 2 months. What percentage of the original purchase price did you get for it, if I may ask?

Did iLogic tell us the sale price already? I didn't see this. I thought this was the thread where he announced the sale and he didn't mention what he sold it for.

Took a loss of 18% selling it. Had I returned it would it have cost me ~21% including shipping.

Oh well, not too big of a deal. The sound would have bothered me too much had I kept it, I’ve accepted the loss and moved on.

@iLogic: You can't just say "I sold it" and leave it at that.
Ok, you can.
But ... what's next? An AG? A Novus? An acoustic?

Unfortunately, from the release of CA98, I think only N1X or LX7XX Rolands will suit your new hunt. I think you still need to wait a little bit for some more material to get crazy about! Enjoy your new trip now and let us know how your journey went.

Criticism is welcomed since it helps improving and going forward!

Yamaha P-105 -> Roland HP-605 -> Roland LX708

I did a video review of the Kawai CA58 (on you tube) and gave it a thumbs down. One of my students had asked me to test it after he bought it, and had mostly tactile issues with it. (irregularities of touch). which indeed were validated. I tried the various Kawai console models as well, and was unimpressed. I have since watched a video of the Kawai ES-8, but have not gotten to test it's regulation from note to note. Don't know on what model its based as some of the portables are derivative. This particular video compared the ES-8 to the Roland FP 90 and Yamaha P255 (I have this model) The video certainly revealed that the Kawai portable was more proximate to a rich acoustic sound than the others. I did play the Roland FP90 but felt the P-255 was a better digital.

An acoustic would be great, but impossible because reasons. (If it was only up to me, I would have bought an acoustic long ago, but apparently I disturb the rest of the household with my practice wink )

I’m kind of done with Kawai for the time being. My next piano will most likely be Yamaha. Perhaps the 685 if NAMM doesn’t unveil something exciting. AG would be great as well.

I tested the LX706 and wasn’t that impressed. I am yet to try the 708 though.

I love the binaural sound of the CFX of the Yamahas through headphones, which makes me want one of those smile

The action of the CA98 was excellent but I liked the heavier touch of the Yamahas as well, including the 685.

If the NU1X didn’t have the loud note issue, I would have bought that one. Unfortunately, an issue like that would most likely have me sell that one as well, since I tend to be bothered by imperfections.

Just go right to the AG, trust me as a recent switcher from CLP685 you’ll wind up trading it in for an AG eventually smile

Gahh... I’ll have to think long and hard I guess. Which is part of the fun of course, although I’m suppose to have a piano home by a birthday party in August. That might be possible if nothing exciting is presented at NAMM. Otherwise, no dice...

Interesting. Since guitar is my primary instrument, I know that guitar players frequently buy/sell/trade instruments for a variety of reasons. However, I think of piano, whether digital or acoustic, as being an item that folks buy for the long term. I learn something new every day. smile

Well done! That's a great selling price considering the recipient will have no guarantee to sustain him in the following years . . . I wish you success in your search. Buyibf pianos always leaves me cold. I find little to excite me except the cabinet design although i know by now that excitement is a dangerous and deceptive thing. Too many people are hooked on it . . .

It seems the OP plays mostly on headphone, is happy with key action, and does not like the sound.
Would this call for a piano VST? whistle
