Obviously I would like to be able to save as much money as possible on this, so the cheaper the better (up to a point). I am also considering getting a used piano as I could hopefully get a higher quality for less, but I don't know how long these types of pianos are meant to last. Any tips/recommendations/links would be greatly appreciated
I read all through the forum that was linked and also had a read on some guides online which lead me to the decision to purchase a used digital piano instead of a new one so that I can get used it a bit before dedicating the money to a completely new piano. Looking online a lot of the used musical instrument sites did not have anything available to ship to London but I found some available to ship from http://www.for-sale.co.uk/digital-piano that were in good condition and for a reasonable price. My Yamaha P35 is on route and should arrive next week; hopefully I will be able to make a good impression with it come Christmas time. Thanks for all the help!
