Hey all,

I will be relocating to China (Shenzhen, specifically) soon. I have the Roland RD 700-NX currently, and am really in love with the feel and sound of it. However, I tried googling, and there doesn't seem to be any of that available in China. Does anyone have experience with DP in China? I will also consider Kawaii, too, if they have sorted out the key issues with the MP10 (heard there were some initial mechanical issues)

Thanks for all the suggestions!

I saw a roland in China once, they wanted the thick end of £9K.

But since you're in shenzhen, simply go down to Hong Kong and buy one from a Tom Lee music shop, the nearest small one is Tai Po, the bigger one is in Kowloon. HK has no VAT and sales tax so it'll be a LOT cheaper.

They have pretty much everything bar casio, if you bin the packaging then it becomes 2nd hand and you don't have to pay import duty but at Lok Mah Chau they don't tend to check much anyway. You'll see 1000s of people importing stuff into China on trollies and not get stopped.

If you get stopped it'll just be like paying VAT on it.

Thanks for the suggestions! I somehow didn't think of going to HK to shop for piano. Sure, lugging it around is gonna be a PITA, but oh well..

I'm from San Francisco :-) come down here and we will talk!
