I ACQUIRED THE CP30 FROM MY BROTHER, WHO DIDN'T HAVE MUCH USE FOR IT. I'VE PLAYED THE FENDER RHODES ALSO, BUT I MUCH PREFER THE CP30.I'VE LINED IT OUT THROUGH MY WHARFDALE MIXER WITH THE CHORUS EFFECTS- I'VE FOUND THE SWEET SPOT.

The CP30 is a fantastic sounding electric piano with semi weighted keys. You get two analogue piano generators which can be detuned from each other to produce some lovely sounds,you also get a tremelo section that allows you to specify the rate of the tremelo and the depth across both analogue piano sounds. You can also use a footswitch to sustain the sounds and this makes some really spacey tones if you use an electro harmonix phaser,think the into to protection by massive attack and you are there. The sound on this thing is superb and has a rock feel to it but can also sound gentle and very delicate sounding. I paid 160 pounds for mine and drove from the northwest of the country all the way to glasgow to pick it up from a very nice looking girl with a gorgeous accent and then drove all the way back and then dragged it doen to my music cellar and played all night. If you like the sound of zero 7/Air etc you will love this beautiful instrument.I can see a time when these will go up in price and become a classic much sought after electric piano. Don't listen to the ney sayers this baby is sex. You will have to add a little reverb to bring the sound to life but is'nt that the case with most things. Easily a five out of five.

I picked this piano up from a family who had loaned it out to a friend for their daughter's piano lessons. It came with an old Garnet SS amp, which I subsequently sold, so the amp cost me 120 CAD altogether. I thought it was neat, but I didn't know what I really had until I got it home and set up in my music room.
What a fantastic piano. Old school, sounds are so versatile, and the stereo feature is...amazing. I don't know what else to say, except I've never had a piano feel and sound this great.
I grew up with KORG MIDI analog (data on cassette), and moved up slowly from there, so the only downside I can see is the lack of transpose capability on this piano.
But the sounds are great, the sustain is ethereal, and the combinations of sounds provide all the versatility any piano player might want.
Portability is kind of neat, too. The way it folds up on itself (although I agree that you definitely need roadies to move this baby around), you can tuck it out of the way if you want to....Phenomenal for composing, because of the many piano type sounds you can coax out of this instrument.
I'm way more than happy....I'm ecstatic!!

I just got this beast yesterday, and I'm very excited about it. I've been hammering away playing some supertramp stuff, which sounds really good. I love the sound of this piano through a nice tube amp with some overdrive and a little reverb. I've also been playing some stuff that would normally sound better on a rhodes, but this thing rocks it up a bit.
the action is great! weighted, but not too heavy for a not-so-great player like myself. I can't wait to record it, and then play live with it.
