Does anyone have this keyboard? Tried it in the shop yesterday and was quite impressed. Full length 88 weighted wooden keys, but only 17kg. Nice acoustic piano sound and good Rhodes and Wurly. Liked the action too, have I missed something?
Need to get rid of my Kawai MP6 - can't stand it!
I've played the Previa quite a few times at living room jam sessions here and there, the action is nice, the price is right, the weight is "carry it under one arm" weight.
I'm not as familiar with the Cp4, but I do like Yamaha equipment. Anyway, I'd say take a look at the Previa so you have something similar to compare the CP4 to before buying.
