Roland FP-10 Digital Piano Bundle $499.99

Piano by itself is currently this price on Amazon $499.99

2019 model piano with same key action and sound engine as the more expensive FP-30. Reviewers seem to generally prefer this piano to the Yamaha P45 which is also currently on sale in a bundle via Costco for $50 less. After a great amount of research I personally decided this was a better deal and worth the extra money, particularly due to more realistic key feel and action vs the P45. The Roland also has Bluetooth connectivity, which is lacking in the P45, and higher polyphony 96 vs 64.

Features:
Ivory-feel progressive hammer action keyboard
Rich grand piano tones and many more
Bluetooth control of piano & apps
Renowned Roland build quality
5-years parts, 2-years labor warranty
Bundle includes:
FP-10 Digital Piano
Matching stand
Deluxe bench with storage
Headphones
Interactive lesson book. Learn songs like "Linus & Lucy" & "Piano Man."

I've tried out the fp30 and it's definitely a better feel than the p45 but it sounds a bit more like an upright to me with a more bright or tingy sound but it sounds good and was fun to play. I went to a Sam Ash that had both the p45 and the fp30 on top of each other and I played both together and the fp30 is better to me. Try to test them each before buying if you can.

How come the fp-30 never got on sales again? Did a new model come out to replace it yet?

Anyone compare this with the newer Casio CDP-S350? Which is on sale for 399.99. Looking at the portability aspect of the Casio CDP-S350 and how it can run off 6AA batteries alone. Would be for a 6yr old beginner. At first I was look at the mid range -high end models but I figured I could upgrade later down the line when he gets better. Thanks!!!

Waiting on a coupon for 20% off and going to get a Privia PX-S3000. That piano is amazing. Tried it in store. The Privia PX-S1000 is great too but way less sounds.

Personally I'd pick up a very cheap used Digital Piano for a 6 year old or even a non-weighted Yamaha or Casio for $150 bucks just to see if they have any desire . Chances are they won't stick with it. That being said, the CDP-S350 has something like 500 sounds so for a child it would probably be more fun than the Roland for them. There are a couple great video reviews of the CDP-S350 on youtube from some piano teacher. It sounds pretty good, the action is good and it has the same ivory-like smooth finish (not slippery shiny plastic) keys that their flagship models have. There was someone on ebay selling new ones for $350 shipped. Not sure if they have any more.

The P-45 is long in the tooth and in blind-test comparison videos on youtube always sounds worse than competing digital pianos in the same price range. Also Amazon carries the P-45 under the model P-71 for $100 less. Still I would definitely get the Roland.

Best advice ever. My 5yr old said she wanted to start piano lessons. We got a basic keyboard from Facebook/craigslist. Guy said his wife bought it, and played 3 whole times before she gave up. LOL Got it for a steal. 6 yrs later, my li'l one seems to be sticking to it, and has graduated to the type of music that requires the pedals, the weighted keys, more keys, etc. I'm NOW willing to invest.

Would you recommend waiting out on a deal for the FP-30? And how noticeable was the touch difference between them? Thank you

I would recommend getting the 10 because it's almost the same as the 30 and the 30s never had a sale on SD. The touch difference was noticeable enough to have better expression with dynamics than the p45. The only alternative that I had considered with the fp30 was the kawai es110 which was closer to a grand but I enjoyed playing the fp30 more than the es110.

Thank you. There has previously been deals for $480 for the 30, but with the bench and console stand, the same weighted action and sound system as the 30, I agree that this seems like the piano to buy.

As a side note, just watched a review on the Casio PXS3000.....seems I like that one too.

My main concern is the action on the piano. I want the best action I can get around this price point.
