Nord is pretty much standard over here. Almost havn't even seen a band, with piano, that doesn't have one on stage.

Have you thought about getting a nice midi keyboard with weighted keys? That way you can plug it in to your computer via USB (assuming it has a built in midi to USB converter which many do) and have it make any sound you want, including piano. smile.gif

You can get a full size, weighted key (the weighted keys feel like real piano keys), midi controller keyboard for a lot cheaper than a digital piano. And it's a lot more flexible. For example, here is an Maudio option that feels just like a piano but is more portable, acts as a midi controller and is about half the price of a digital piano.

Thanks for the tip but what i need right now is a good practice piano ... and not a midi controller even tho this might be more flexible..
I will most probably go for the kawai cn33 ..do you guys think that 96 pholifony is good enouth for classical music ?? or sould i go for one w/ 128 pholifony just to be safe ?

Oh and another question can anybody tell me (by the specs ) if the casio ap 400 has the similer sound/ action quality to the kawai cn 33.. (cause this one is a bit cheaper)
