We have several second hand Classenti CDP1 pianos available ranging from £495.
Please call us on 01327 300 016 if you would like more information.
Thank you very much for sending me the manual. I wondered if you would be willing to give me some advice as well.
I do not seem to be able to use the Transpose button as described in Section 15 ‘Transpose’. When I press the Transpose button it flashes and the E.piano1, E.piano2 and Harpsichord buttons light up. (The manual does not mention this happening.) Pressing any of the F#4 to F5 keys while continuing to hold down the Transpose button does nothing. (I have noticed that if I press one of the lit up E.piano1, E.piano2 or Harpsichord buttons while continuing to hold down the Transpose button, it’s light goes out and the piano goes mute. It comes back on and the piano’s sound comes back on again if I press the button again. This is not mentioned in the manual either.)
I do not really know what Section 16 ‘Setting the Tuning Curve’ means. But I have checked, and holding down the Transpose button and pressing the Organ button as described does not appear to do anything.
However, pressing the Transpose button and then pressing the Demo button does make the Demo light flash and the Heavy and Light Touch buttons light up, exactly as described in Section 17 ‘Adjust the Master Tuning’. (The flashing E.piano1, E.piano2 and Harpsichord buttons all go off as well). I have only pressed the Transpose button again after this, as per bullet point D (i.e. to exit from the master tuning).
Everything else on the piano works very well.
Do you have any idea what might be going on here? Do you think it is a fault or am I doing something incorrectly?
Many thanks for your help
I have worked it out.
If you press and hold down the transpose button
then you can change the pitch by pressing the
keys 2 octaves higher.
Example: Press C# two octaves higher than middle C#
and it will transpose the piano up a semitone.
Example: Then press C two octaves higher than middle C
and it will transpose it back down a semitone.
Try this and hope it works for you.
