UTILIZATION

Weighted keys with hammer action.
You can feel a small resistance when you press the keys.

It's very easy to use. It's a very simple digital piano and not an arranger that can do everything.

SOUNDS

It's very subjective to like a piano sound over another one.
Personally, I like very much the electric piano, the sound of piano1, I have virtually never used the "Mallets," for example, the organs could be better and certain string styles are really very good.
When it comes to the realistic quality of the sounds, of the piano, for example,
there are better options on the market today, it's obvious, the developments in terms of sound from the time of the FP8 are huge.

OVERALL OPINION

I've used it for 20 years.
I like the sound out of the built-in speakers. When connected to external speakers, the sound seems colder.

I have performed dozens of concerts and gone on tour with it! It is very robust, and it is also quite heavy.
To finish, I have never had any problems with it, no repairs needed and everything still works fine.
I'll keep it.
