A little more, here:

http://www.proffshoppen.com/alle-produkter/71-digital-piano/2315-dexibell-vivo-stage/

Seems to be a standard stage piano. High polyphony (the claim is for infinite polyphony). Up to 15 second long samples on low notes.

I'm thinking it's what has risen out of the ashes of General Music / GEM.

When I picked up our Roland HP605 they had these pianos at the store and I must say I was impressed. Keyaction felt nice a bit heavy but it did feel very pleasingly solid and responsive and the sound for the price was pretty damn good. ( H7 model ) The styling I was not too keen on - my wife was a bit on the fence about it. A bit flashy ^^

Another thing I noticed when playing the H7 - a slight draft around my fingers all the time coming from between the keys - this could be a plus for sweaty hands ^^ but those keys they looked extremely well aligned.
Our Roland Hp605 is pretty well put together too but some slight uneven gaps here and there nonetheless - One those H7's they looked like you would need a micrometer to tell any differences.

Wonder what the mechanism inside looks like.

Goss, I believe the Dexibell models utilise Fatar keyboard actions.

Dexibell is owned by Proel - both companies are located on the east coast of Italy, approximately one hour apart.

Cheers,

thanks James ^^
hm reading responses on those on the forums here one stood out for me by fizikisto

If you really do find that action heavy to play, it might be because you're carrying a lot of unnecessary tension in your hands as you play. Do you have a teacher that can watch for that? It can be hard to remedy if you're a self learner (though not impossible, just harder). If you are training yourself to play with a lot of tension, that can not only cause deficiencies in your technique later on, it can also (in some cases) lead to pretty severe repetitive stress injuries.

something I need to remedy for myself I think..

I watched part of a YouTube video on this piano and stopped viewing as soon as Fatar was mentioned.

I've played Fatar actions and have not been impressed. I was also at the MuziekMesse in Frankfort years ago and saw the Fatar display where they had keyboards that needed to be repaired on display.

I also tried the Nord piano when it was introduced. It sounded great, the action was horrible.

Now, if they've improved their actions, great.

One would think a company that just makes keyboard actions would have figured things out years ago. This is like going to a café that specializes in coffee and they serve it to you cold.

[/quote] This is like going to a café that specializes in coffee and they serve it to you cold. [/quote] XD

Well like I said here or someplace else - I found the action to be very solid feeling, and it looks very well made. It did feel heavy and at first sluggish too but I put that down to being a novice - it's all muscle isn't it

That said for a company that just makes keys I imagine it must be a challenge.. If you can make the best action possible if you keep on making just that you got nothing new to show year on year and might as well fire all the engineering staff eh XD

I've played one at Stourbridge Music Centre. It's an exceptional demo Greg because he plays everything pretty softly and at low velocities the Dexibell is really beautiful (really lovely!). However if you hear other demos of the main voice (Vivo Grand) it gets a wee bit toy like in the mid range (plinky plonky I call it) at higher velocities. The other main grand voice (Classic Grand) is less afflicted.

It's a great package. Good prices (although the whole range has gone up by £200-300 since launch). The home version looks great in a modern way. And the stage versions (S7) have a simpler, cleaner vibe than say the new RD, which has a control panel akin to something off the bridge of the Enterprise. The P series (for portable) have decent, ballsy speakers in them although there is a slight action downgrade on the P series. They all felt pretty good to me. I'd consider one in certain circumstances.

My local music store has a Dexibell on the floor though I didn't play it.

I really think they should change the brand name to be slightly more ... serious. It's difficult to take a name like that seriously, or is that just me?

I think it's because it's new. There's no established recognition. If you think about it, if Roland, Korg, Nord, Yamaha or Kawai were launched as new brands now we'd all think they had daft names.

Despite the name ^^ the models impressed - if they offered a proper upright model with the same price standpoint as their modern smaller console style models they would surely make some headway to as you say Essbrace establish some recognition
