Ok, im currently playing on a Yamaha NP-30. Which cost a fair bitt (199) but unfortunatly it only has 76 keys, missing 1 Octave in otherwords. It's no biggie, but I would love to have that extra octave! Oh, and I would like the Graded Hammer Touch aswell Smile

What I'm planning on getting is a Yamaha YDP-131. It has 88 keys. Yay!

But when I leave the rancid country called Wales I will hopefully get a decent job for a decent house and a real piano Smile But, I can dream on till then Wink

Yeah, graded hammer is great. But when you first are goning to get a Digital Piano, you should Aim for the 3graded Wink I got that, and is sounds amazingly alike a real piano. My 3graded are two notches abowe the most exensive 1graded Yamaha, at least that had been imported to Norway. Its not so much that differs considering its an instrument you gona have for several years! .)

A Yamaha PSR-47, 61 keys, from 1989... I killed it Sad

I was going to buy a M-Audio ProKeys 88....

But I found Roland RD-300GX, and I think it'll be a nice buy, more expensive, so I can go to the store right now,
but better buy something a little more expensive, than the most cheapest you can get.


( I got the PSR-47 for free, so no loss there ^_^ )

Update!

I just poped to my local music store, just to look around the piano department and... OMG! I've never seen so many pianos in my life lol.

I was rather taken by the KAWAI K-8, but the price of 2999 put me off just a little.

The one of the staff, who was extreamly helpfull and even gave me advice on my "over pedaling", showed me a Roland digital piano. Cant remember the model but it was 1299, price cut from 1800.

It had controls to change the "virtual" grand piano lid was closed, half open or open. also to change the stiffness of the keys when your press them down etc.

My parents, are also take by the KAWAI K-8, and they are considering buying it, Since we are going on holiday to Kenya soon, which is going to be 3000. They will hold back Sad

They said, that if the KAWAI K-8, remains extreamly expensive they will buy the Roland Digital Piano.

So now, I end with 3 words:
I cant wait!

Well congrats then! =) There wont be a to big difference between a 2000 and 3000 - piano. Not in a way that you will regret buying the cheaper one atleast! Smile

The owner was also showing me the older Roland compared to the newer roland... The newer roland sound dead and flat on the piano sound, the old one had a more vibrant and fuller sound Smile Yet, still, compared to the Kawai K-8 Acoustic piano. A lot of difference lol
