The CA51 has wooden keys; do they make much difference? and is the piano action better in the 42 or 51?
Anyone any experience of these pianos and any opinions as to which is better value?
Also how do you think the Casio AP620 compares with these pianos?
Kawai in my part of the world is hard to come by in terms of their digital and stage pianos. I haven't considered it to be a particular loss because I don't feel that the piano sound is particularly authentic when compared to Roland and in particular Yamaha.pianopaul wrote:The CA51 has wooden keys; do they make much difference? and is the piano action better in the 42 or 51?
The wooden keys, and in particular if Kawai have used real grand piano wooden keys which are longer than standard piano keys, the feel will be slightly more authentic owing to the greater weight of the keys. As for the models themselves, I have no personal experience of either of them.
