Looking for some advise, I am a late comer to the CP4 in fact it I do not have it as yet but will next week when it arrives, I used to own and gig a P200 and the action and sound suited me but the weight in a flightcased started to become a chore. I then got the Yamaha S90ES a great board and still have that but again the weight flightcased has become a problem so I started to looking at other stage Pianos and have been through the usual suspects of Roland, Nord, Kawai, Dexibel and of course Yamaha.
I know the CP4 is now late in its production run but as yet Yamaha seem not to have a new Stage Piano ready for market and if they do it could be months or next year and some might think I should hang on as see what comes. But there is something about the CP4 in quality of sound that the others are missing and I like the timbre of Yamaha Acoustic Pianos which is maybe why I have kept returning to the CP1 as its weight and form factor seem right for me as a performing player.
Anyway I have pulled the trigger on the CP4 and await its arrival, my main question at the moment is I need a case or soft bag for this instrument and the Yamaha CP bag gets the thumbs down from a lot of CP4 and CP40 owners due to poor and flimsy design which is very unusual for Yamaha in my experience.
So any recommendations as to what case to look at which is well made, offers real protection to the CP4 and which does not add lots of weight to the CP4 ?
