I'm totally new to the board - have been playing on the same electric organ just under twenty years now, the last five of which have been in a band. I've just moved to London and don't have the room to take the organ with me, so I was looking to invest in a nice portable stage piano - and you guys seem to be very helpful in giving advice!
The main things that I'm looking for are a really good, realistic piano (preferably grand) sound with properly weighted keys, and also harpsichord and church organ voices (again, the more realistic these are the better). I'm ideally looking to spend around £700 (with some leeway on either side), so my budget isn't huge, but does anyone have any suggestions?
Really hope you can help!
The MP4 is a very nice stage piano, and you will be able to pick one up alot cheaper than usual with a bit of luck, since the model is being replaced with the MP5 very soon (I think). Build quality is everything you would expect of a Japanese instrument, and it is packed with features. 3 year warranty too I think.
Echoing another post here, this is a very heavy instrument, because it is built to withstand sustained professional use. Almost all good stage pianos are very heavy.
