As I see, Dexibell is not really popular here, but still... Any thoughts, guys?


If you wonder what may happen if you start learning piano as an adult (at the age of 33, for example) - subscribe my channel and let's find this out together:)

As usually, play them yourself, also including the Kawai, Roland and Yamaha competition, and decide for yourself. Preferences regarding key action and sound are very subjective.

I think the GP action is one of the better DP actions. Simulated escapement is omitted, presumably for faster repetition.
H10 has the quite recent Fatar TP-400W action (also in S9, Numa X Piano GT), not so many sightings and reviews.

I didn't play Dexibell myself but as far as I remember their action is basically Roland's PHA-50, that's probably because Dexibell took over old Roland factory in Italy.
Roland's PHA-50 is light weighted and very durable.
I see that You have Nord Piano, if You like Your current action then Kawai's action will suit You cause that's what Nord uses.

Cheers,
Dariusz

Unfortunately it doesn't work that way. Roland's own PHA-50 action remains their IP, regardless of what happens to a particular factory. Dexibell, being Roland IT employees starting a new brand, have to build/buy everything from scratch, including the action, which they source from Fatar. The H10 uses the TP-400 W action.

Can they modify/tune it to behave very similarly to the PHA-50? I'm sure they can, if they wanted to. But AFAIK they don't have access to Roland IP.

My understanding is that Dexibell was formed by former Roland Italy employees, however their products do not use any Roland technologies.

The Nord Grand uses a Kawai action.
The Nord Piano uses a Fatar action.

Kind regards,

I have been shopping around lately and have played the Kawai's (79,99) and the Yamahas (785, NU1) and the Roland 708 and the Casio 310). Currently I have the Dexibell H7. So, why shopping? The TP40 action on the H7 just isn't what I want but the sound is the best out there when using headphones. The piano speakers aren't that great. But, the sound is what got me in the first place - but this was supposed to be a temporary piano (long story). In any case, I have been shopping and playing and my takeaway is that the GP10 has the best action and the Dexibell has the best sounds. The Kawai 79 (using headphones) sounds really good and the action is pretty good - it's a good middle of the road combination. My problem is that my H7 isn't worth much on the used market and I'm choking on spending so much on another piano that I either don't like the sound of but love the action, or something that's acceptable but I don't love. The Yamaha sound of those I tried was the best, Kawai second, the Roland third (too fake and electronic) and the Casio dead last. The Casio sound was mushy, blended poorly, and was uneven up and down the keyboard - I was shocked. Perhaps their floor model had some problems.

The Dexibell H10 with that Fatar TP400W action is supposed to be pretty good action wise - but no one has them around here anymore to play. So, good luck on your search but if you do get a chance to play the H10 be sure to take some good headphones and see what you think. For me on my H7 those platinum sounds will be really hard to leave behind - they are balanced and just really sound great.
