I've been offered a Clavinova CLP260 for £350, apparently it had all the electronics refurbished about 4 years ago.
Does anyone know if this sounds like a reasonable price for one of these and if there are any drawbacks to this model.
Digitals from the early 1990s will not be as good as what Yamaha produced around 2003. Sound sampling and keyboard action has evolved so much since then! Make sure you like the sound and feel before you pay anything! Take into consideration also the cosmetic state of the instrument!
1/ keyboard key response/action?
2/ sound quality - are the voices realistic/ good enough for you?
3/ your budget?
4/ realistic emulation of an acoustic piano?
5/ purpose of the instrument - are you a serious player or someone who likes to fiddle and play around with the instrument in your free time? Are you going to gig with the instrument or play at home?
Very often, the budget will have to help you decide. Maybe if you can give me some more information in those areas, I might be able to work out something that would be more suitable for you.
