Comments about Suzuki CTP-88 Classroom Teaching Piano with Bench:
I bought this for my 7 year old 13 months ago through Guitar Center. He has been taking piano lessons for some time and I decided to purchase this piano partly because it had good reviews. It has worked well over the last year. It is well cared for, and used around 20 minutes per day most days... Sometimes up to an hour per day. It is completely unplugged during any family absences such as vacations. We just returned from a week away. The piano was played the day before we left and I unplugged it completely before leaving. I just plugged it back in this morning so my son could practice and there is no sound. Everything else looks to be working perfectly. I called Suzuki to help me troubleshoot what the problem was and because it was out of warranty (13 months vs 12 months), they would not assist me other than just to provide the names of repair services... No troubleshooting... Nothing. I'm extremely disappointed in the piano, the customer service, and the company. Things are just not made to be quality products anymore... And companies do not try to assist anyone. Never did I imagine that the sound would spontaneously stop working after 13 months for no apparent reason and no warning.
I recently gave away a very nice Yamaha keyboard that I received as a Christmas present in 1990. It still worked... I'm kicking myself over getting rid of it now. I guess I expected the new digital piano to at least last a few years.
