Originally bought a Nord Piano 4 which had great piano patches but the keys made so much noise. Sam Ash has a Yamaha CP88 in the store and I just fell in love with it. Great action, plenty of great Yamaha piano patches and I really like how you can easily blend many patches together (unlike the Nord). So happy I returned my Nord and purchased this keyboard. Use it in my practice studio everyday. One little bonus, Yamaha has been sending out bi-annual updates to this keyboard with new patches. Wasn't expecting this but it's been fun to get some new sounds to experiment with.
