Questions and Comments
I am back in the piano market again. I went to my dealer with the
intention of purchasing a Yamaha
CLP 380. However, the salesperson told me that for the price of the 380,
I would be better off buying the CVP 505 with the additional features.
Based on the salesman recommendation, I purchased the Yamaha CVP 505. I have
played on it for a few weeks now. However, I am finding that I do not like
it as much as the Yamaha CLP 380.
To me, even with all the bells and whistles, the touch and sound of the CVP
505 does not come close to that of the CLP 380. Since I am unhappy, the
dealer has agreed to allow me to do an even exchange for the CLP 380. Of
course, this will mean a loss of money for me because I have to purchase the
CLP 380 for the price I paid for the CVP 505 but I will do it just to get
the piano I want.
The dealer thinks that I will regret my decision in the future by
switching back to the CLP 380. He feels that the CLP 380 will not have as much
DO YOU THINK THAT I AM MAKING A WISE DECISION? I really like the sound
and touch of the CLP 380 but I don’t want to lose money needlessly. Please
help me as I always value your honest opinion.

It’s a shame that the salesman persuaded you to
get the CVP505 instead of the CLP380… he was
very wrong to do this…
Pushy salepeople are trained to sell you the most
expensive piano. This is because the shop makes
more profit and the salesperson gets a higher
A good – and ethical – salesperson will sell you
a piano that’s right for YOUR needs, not THEIRS,
regardless of the price…
This creates goodwill and future recommendations
for their store.
And, in addition to that, the salesperson will
sleep well at night knowing they helped someone
make the right choice.
Going back to your choice of piano… you’re
absolutely right in saying that the CLP380 has
a nicer sound and better feel to the keys
than the CVP505.
I totally agree!
It looks as though you’ll have to exchange it for
the CLP380 and take a loss.
Personally I think that shop should refund the
whole amount you paid for the CVP505, then take
a new order from you for the CLP380.
