Cheapo piano

Costco currently has Casio’s Privia PX-100 electronic piano on sale, with a stand, for about CDN$700. I picked one up yesterday for my increasingly-crowded basement studio.

Ordinarily, I wouldn’t consider buying a Casio instrument. But this one has 88 keys, velocity sensitive, and weighted for a fairly good piano-like feel. Its built-in samples sound like ass, but I don’t care, because it has MIDI output. I run the MIDI into my computer, where it goes into Steinberg’s ‘The Grand SE’ VST instrument, which sounds very good.

I ask you, where else can you get a decent-feeling 88-key weighted MIDI keyboard and stand for $700?
