Kacey Posted July 5, 2013 Share Posted July 5, 2013 Hello coldplayers, I've done a number of coldplay piano covers on YouTube, which some of you may or may not have seen: I've had that keyboard for 7 years or so, and am looking to upgrade now. It is a Yamaha YPG-525 model. The piano sampling is pretty horrible, and it only has lightly weighted keys. I've looked around the net, and everyday I get more confused as to which model would suit me best. I want fully weighted keys, with a decent piano sampling worth upgrading to, and a decent selection of tones. I've mostly been using piano and strings as of late, so maybe I don't need a whole variety, but I'm used to having them there if I need it. I thought I was going to go for Roland FP-80, but in person its just not that spectacular. I've looked at the Yamaha YDP v240, which is the exact same thing as the DGX/YPG series, just with bigger speakers it seems, not worth the money imo. I've read this piano "experts" blog about digital pianos, and he likes the casio PX-780, which covers a lot of needs at only $999. It seems like a decent choice, would have to try it first, but I don't know about buying a casio model over Yamaha... I could keep going, but does anyone have any suggestions for me? Or any tips? I could spend up to $2000, preferably lower of course. I was also thinking about the Yamaha P155, which I've yet to try, but I hear the higher octaves are quite rough, and maybe even the Yamaha YDP 181. But like I said, everyday I keep finding new models which may work. I'm not sure how I feel about stage pianos...they have a lot of features, but I don't know that I would need all of them, plus they require some monitors for live sound output.
