Wondering if anyone can tell me anything about the clp 100 clavinova? I understand it was one of the earliest and is now superceded by the 120, 140 etc. but an opportunity has come to purchase one for round about £150 and I'm wondering if it would be a good deal.
At the moment I'm just doodling around on a cheap keyboard (basically a glorified kid's toy) and teaching myself a bit of basic jazz piano but I'm becoming increasingly frustrated by the lack of touch response, and from what I've read on here and elsewhere it seems that having realistically weighted keys is a necessity if you're to go on to play 'proper' piano so am hoping to upgrade. However, can't really afford to go much over a couple of hundred quid, especially as I don't know if it's something I'll take to and be able to keep up seriously.
Which is all a longwinded way of saying I'd be grateful if anyone can tell me anything about how this clavinova is regarded - is it hugely inferior to the modern clps? does it have the graded hammer action? is there a reason why it's so cheap and I should steer well clear?!
It probably wont have the graded action but it sounds like you wont need that feature, but it probably will have an excellent action being a yamaha.
