The Kawai MP4 is a dream. After months of trying out new boards (Rolands, Yamaha, Korg even the Nord's), nothing touches the Kawai. This is the most dynamic and comfortable digital piano I have ever played. Plays like a acoustic grand....so sweet! The setup and functionality of this piano is extremely easy. You will NOT be dissappointed if this is your next purchase. There is nothing better!
Features: Its got 64 built in voices. The grand painos are very good and lifelike, with Kawai's harmonic imaging sampling as a fantasic alternative to Yamaha's velocity sampling system. It also has sustain pedal and sympathetic resonation samples. The electric piano and organ samples are alright, but if youre serious about ep and organ, you can always buy a rack mount midi device. Keep in mind that this thing has NO ONBOARD SPEAKERS, so get a quality keyboard amp, preferrably two, if you have the money, so you can do it in stereo! Furthermore, the interface is incredibly easy to understand, just read the manual and play with it for half an hour. Also, it looks really sharp! all the knobs and levels make it a little retro.Quality: The thing is built as solid as a brick. I mean really, its encased in steel! Its a bit heavy, about 45 pounds, but its not as hefty as the yamaha p240, so hey, dont complain. The sustain pedal that coes with it is kind of lame: too springy. So if i were you, id get one of the Yamaha FC-4's along with it. Value: Well, ill try to put it in terms of the most popular rivaling brand: Yamaha. Its like doubly as good as a P-90 for about the same price. Expanding on that, id say that most of the voices on it are better, especially the Grand piano sound, not to mention it has many more. It also has many more features, such as layering and spliting, which can really come in handy. Overall: If youre a gigging musician and youre going to take this thing up on stage and put on a show, its going to serve you much better than much else out there. the action is better than you'll find anywhere. Period. The sounds are great, and its rock solid. If youre a hobbyist, get something thats geared towards you, like the Yamaha P-140. If youre a clasical musician, what are you doing here? Get a Bosendorfer! But im telling you right now, if youre going to get up there and play rock, jazz, blues, or anything like that, this instrument will be a purchase you will never regret.
After much comparison shopping, I was looking for a professional stage piano that simply does a good piano, Rhodes, and B3. Everything else is gravy. This piano is rugged and roadworthy and has great sounds. Weighted hammer action is superb and extremely dynamic. Splits, effects, and layering all very easy to use. The unit has a real power cord and no wall wart, yeah!
