Sorry to start yet another piano comparison thread, but I fineally decided to get myself a decent gigastudio-piano. I quickly decided on the Bardstown Bosendorfer, because of all the positive comments that it got.
Then I started to read about the Yamaha C7 piano that just got released.
The point is, I\'ll mainly use the piano in a (symphonic) pop/rock contest and I need a piano with plenty of \"punch\" and \"drama\" (think Keith Emerson etc.). (Some gigapianos sound a bit dull in a pop/rock-contest.)
I only have internet connection at the university so it\'s difficult for me to download all the different demos, but my initial impression is that the Bosendorfer is an all-round piano, while the Yahama C7 is made mainly for rock/pop. Although that will be my main use, it\'s nice to have a piano than can play dynamic and soft also (bosendorfer). On the other side, the Yahama C7 has more velocity layers, which is definately a strong point. Ahhh, the dilemma... :-)
Any advice on what piano best suited to my needs would be greatly appreciated.
