Hmm are you saying I should probably get the CDP-100? As of right now I cant find a place online anyway thats selling the CDP-200R in the USA that is would you know if its out in Europe only if it is whats the release date out in the US. If its to late then I may have to settle for the CDP-100 becuase I really want to start learning now. Where can you find the CDP-100 for $300?
The weighted 88-key pianos are best if the goal is to learn piano. For pop music synth sounds go with something else.
I didn't say which to get, just that you should get the one you can afford rather then wait half a year.
None of these are lifetime investments. You buy and sell them like computers and iPods. A year from now you will know a lot more and have developed a better ear. So don't spend a fortune on the first piano
Guitar Center had a $299 price tag on the CDP100 last weekend. This week they are running a $50 off coupon but the price is at $350.
Just go in there to GC and borrow a "learn to play" book off their rack and see if you can get though the first few pages of the book. Be sure and ask them to put the keyboard on a stand set to the proper height and then find a piano bench
After 30 minutes the sales guys will notice you are still there and must be serious and ask what they can do to "help you buy it today" Ask for 15% off, zero percent financing and if you can keep the book, You'll get half of what you ask for.
