Yamaha Clavinova CLP 340 Review

:arrow: GENERAL IMPRESSIONS - 10 I paid a little bit more than the cheapest price I could find on the net so that I could buy it from my local store. It was delivered ready made with only 5 minutes worth of tinkering required once it was in the house. Even ready built, it was brought in the back of ...

Re: Where to buy - local or internet?

We're probably at crossed purposes - there are advantages to buying things from Dawson's shop . I concede that and indeed, that is why I have now ordered my Clavinova from a local retail outlet at a slight premium over the best online price I could find. I meant I can't see the point in buying anyth...

Re: Where to buy - local or internet?

As for Dawson's not discounting - there's no point ever buying anything from Dawson's online (as opposed to their store). iMusician, which is owned by Dawsons, has exactly the same website and stock as Dawsons, but offers everything approximately 10% cheaper. The problem is that retailers on the hi...

Re: Where to buy - local or internet?

Well I'd written an email to the chap before I went to visit, but for some reason it hadn't got sent so (obviously) I had not had a reply. It got sent on Sunday and he came back to me with a price that was less than 10% more than I could get it for online so I'm inclined to get it locally with the b...

Where to buy - local or internet?

Thanks for previous advice. I moved about 12 months ago, but there was a big store (Dawsons) near where I lived so I popped in when I was passing by. Unfortunately it was a Sunday and they were closed! I did find a store nearer where I live now and had a look there the other day - I haven't complete...

Clavinova for a beginner - 330 / 340 / 370?

I'm new to digital pianos - and new to pianos full stop. As is commonly heard, I suspect, my daughter (almost 8) wants to learn an instrument and I suggested either the piano or the guitar, as those are the two I wished I had learned when younger - well, I'd have liked the drums too but I'm NOT sugg...
