I can no longer progress with my old piano. The sound is good but the keyboard mechanism is too heavy and slow. My fingers move faster than the keys and forces me to slow down.
I am thinking about changong it for a Yamaha Clavinova. It does not need to be tuned, it is much cheaper than an acoustica piano, you can wear earphones wich will make my neighbours extremely happy and it does not weight 180 kilos. So I can move it easily.
Does enybody have a Yamaha Clavinova. Can you share your experience with an electronic piano? I donīt want to make another mistake.

I do not play piano but my partner who died in 1995 did.  He was in the process of switching over to a clavinova so that he could plug into the computer and write, edit, record or all of the above.  Sadly he did not live long enough to be able to accomplish his goals. If this is something you want to do I would say : go for it. 
( But I wouldn't throw away a nice piano in the process) (Just saying.)

Thank you Bear. Sorry that your partner could not enjoy it. My piano is quite a bad piano anyway and it is too heavy to move it.
By the way I am selling it  ;)

Hey Juan,

My sister had a 1906 Werlitzer upright and loved it as her prize possession.  They wee moving to a new house and loaded it on the truck.  Her husband said not to tie it down it was so heave it won't fall off the truck.  hey took a turn, it landed upside down and shattered.  My sister still has her 1906 Werlitzer, she had it restored but, she does have a new husband.

I worked in a Jazz club in L.A. part time.  One of our musicians (someone famous, but don't remember who) brought his grand piano for shows instead of using the one in house.  It had to be taken apart to fit in the elevator.

When I still dated real girls, I went for awhile with Jean who played rhythm guitar in an all-girl rock band.  The girl who played piano in the band had an old upright piano all hooked up and connected to the amplifiers.  It took hours to get the piano ready for a show.  Once in an unfamiliar town the locals were buzzing because the band must be really hot, they have chicks for roadies.  The band was hot, the roadies were the band and wrote their own music.  I don't play music but if you are moving around, I would choose the electric portable because a piano is not easy to move.  have the best day

Juan, my brother and sister-in-law bought their daughter one for her college graduation, for the very reasons you mentioned....ease of moving it, ability to use headphones, etc.

I would like to trade my upright in, but I rarely play it anyway.   It sure makes it difficult when it comes time to move.  It weighs a ton.
