“Overall build quality is much better than I expected for the price”
I have been using my CDP1 for almost two weeks now and I would like to say I am VERY pleased. The action is superb – if you shut eyes and ears you would be convinced you are playing a real piano keyboard.
The sounds are good; personally I prefer Piano2 which is brighter but both are excellent piano sounds for the money. I’ve seen the piano described as woolly, well, it is at very low volume so turn up the volume a bit and it’s fine. The other sounds are fun for playing around (which of course I am still doing!). Overall build quality is much better than I expected for the price and the whole unit has a comforting solid feel to it.
The delivery men were kind enough to put the piano box in the sitting room and I had it up and running in about 25 minutes – solo.
This is actually very easy if you follow the following procedure:-
– Open the box , take out the base and sides and screws. Don’t remove any of the packing on the keyboard
– Turn the box on its side with the keys facing down.
– Build the base & sides, and lay them down, pedals down.
– WITHOUT removing any packing, slide out the keyboard and get rid of the box
– Remove the polythene bag from the two ends of the keyboard and fit the base to it.
– Lift the whole thing to an upright position (which is quite easy as the weight is supported by the feet)
– remove the polystyrene “hoops” and the rest of the packaging
– Play it and smile

2) “We love the piano the sound, its compactness and there is just the right amount of functions to stop it being complicated”
As a result of the information you provide on your site about comparing digital pianos, we have just taken delivery of a Classenti for our young daughter. We love the piano the sound, its compactness and there is just the right amount of functions to stop it being complicated. My mum (aged 73) played the piano when she was younger quite fluently and has had a little tinkle; she is now seriously thinking of buying one for herself and taking some refresher lessons, which I’m very pleased about.

4) “The instrument is about as compact as you are likely to get for a full size digital piano”
I’m very pleased with my choice of digital piano, the sound is good enough, although not the same as the real thing.
Relatives who are quite accomplished players have had a go and are impressed with the sound and weighting of the keys.
I got it for my 6 year old son who practices constantly. The headphones option means he can play without disturbing anyone else. He listens to the demo tracks, and is trying to copy Humouresque.
The piano was delivered just a few days after I ordered it, and it was easy to assemble. I chose the Cherry finish
as it fits into our lounge without appearing too dark and imposing. The instrument is about as compact as you are
likely to get for a full size digital piano.
I chose the package deal which included the adjustable piano stool, headphones, and keyboard cover. My son is tiny, but the stool works a treat.
Before chosing the rent to buy option, I trawled around our local music shops, but I could not find a digital piano
as competitively priced. Ordering off the internet meant my son could not try out the instrument, but in fairness,
my local Piano shop did not like children touching the instruments in any event!
My son only started playing in April, and I couldn’t be sure he would take to the Piano – that is why I chose the
rent to buy scheme. I am now satisfied he has a keen interest that will continue, and I will buy the piano I rented.

5) “I have tried Roland, Yamaha, and others and still found the action to be light. This Classenti CDP1 is absolutely perfect for me and i love the action it feels like a real piano”
The Classenti CDP1 is absolutely fantastic. I grew up playing on my mom’s
wooden frame piano inherited from her grandfather. So i love the feel of a
real heavy piano. When i had lessons i used to play on my teachers Yamaha
Grand Piano and found i didn’t like the light action.
My sister has played my new Classenti CDP1 and she is amazed and says it
feels like a real piano. The sound is good and you can hear the notes getting
quieter when you hold the keys down exactly like a real piano.
I have tried Roland, Yamaha, and others and still found the action to be light.
This Classenti CDP1 is absolutely perfect for me and i love the action it feels
like a real piano. Also the price is amazing, you get a lot of instrument for
I am enjoying my piano journey and will get to and past my standard that i
got to 5 years ago.

6) “I would never have imagined that I would replace it by searching the internet for advice and ordering on line without even trying out the sound in a shop”
My Classenti CDP1 bundle arrived nice and early this morning with no
problems and within an hour I have had it all assembled and had a good play!
I am really pleased and very impressed with the way it plays like an
acoustic piano and with the sound quality. A good make, and clearly
technology has moved on and quality has improved since the last time I
bought a digital piano.
I have just given my old Clavinova to the school boarding house we have
been running, where it has been in constant use and much loved by a large
number of students and me. It is still working perfectly and I have kept it in
good condition but I knew it would be greatly missed if I brought it home
with me as we retired from our residential role in July, so decided to treat
myself to a new smaller instrument as space is tight!
When I first invested in my Clavinova approximately 18 -20 years ago I would
never have imagined that I would replace it by searching the internet for
advice and ordering on line without even trying out the sound in a shop,
but the CDP1 is everything I had hoped for and more, and I am very grateful
for your website, the excellent advice book, the range of comments from
other piano users about the different models, and your personal efficient
and friendly service.
Thank you very much indeed.

7) “Can’t believe what great value this is”
Got a Classenti CDP1 Black Satin yesterday. Can’t believe what great
value this is. OK so it’s not a Yamaha or Roland, but as an entry point
electric piano for the kids and me, it’s perfect and the price is great.

8) “Classenti CDP1: A digital piano that really does feel like playing the real thing!”
Whilst the snow delayed the delivery of my digital piano, this did not detract from the joy of finally receiving it and playing it for the first time, and many thanks to David who did his very best to get the digital piano to me as quickly as possible.
In my mature years I decided to put into practice something I have wanted to do all my life, but due to circumstance never got around to!!! The competitively priced Classenti CDP1 is perfect for the adult learner, giving you the opportunity to play a digital piano that really does feel like playing the real thing! It is simply assembled, but I would say get a friend to help when it comes to placing the keyboard on to the legs as it is a little heavier than you would think. Overall I couldn’t be more pleased and the rent to own programme is fantastic as I can decide over a period of time if this is the model for me or indeed if I may need to upgrade. Thank you UK Pianos!
