Re: Advice on used Kemble Classic

:shock: I have a Yamaha digital piano !

That's the main reason for upgrading to an acoustic as many people have said they are better for learning technique and generally piano skills.

(I am studying for G5 piano after sitting 1-4 over the last 2 years plus 1-5 theory exams). :piano;
