I don't really want to buy a new one as I haven't got the money to spend on something that we may or may not use in the long term, I also don't want to get something that she will outgrow if she keeps up the lessons.
I was about to buy a classenti cdp 10 for £300 but this forum has put me off, any help would be greatly appreciated
I am based in Stanmore if that has any bearing and am also happy to swap electrical work for a piano if anyone has dodgy wiring and a piano they want to get rid of! you don't get if you don't ask!!!
So, in my ramblings here, I'm defending the Casio but, if you're not sure if your daughter will continue in the long term, I recon the Yamaha will have a better resale value and will probably have a better action to help her develop her finger strength! Oh, and don't skimp on a stand to make sure its absolutely at the right height for her else she'll find it a real chore...
Good luck, I hope she keeps learning and loves it.
