Well ths for the insight into the keys of today. I mainly play the piano sounds as I'm not in a synth band or progressive rock-LOL. But I gather top of the range keys are good but too pricey.

I might look for a medium price tag and with weighted keys style. But thx for the brands mentioned and I'll probably go with Roland or yammy.

cheers

The action is pretty much worn out on my stage piano so I am looking getting a new Keyboard. So I have been looking at what is out there.

At the $1200 Price point you have the
1) Yamaha CP-33- Nice action - Nice Piano Sounds .... That is pretty much it. This is a good choice if that is all you want to do but if you need brass section patches etc.... Then You may want something else.

2) Kurzweil SP2X - Does a lot of stuff! The action may or may not be as good as the Yamaha...That is sort of a personal thing. I like the controller features and sound choices better than the Yamaha but it weigh close to 50 pounds where the Yamaha weighs around 30 pounds I think ( You will need to look it up on the websites. )

Around the $1400

3) Roland RD-300gx - I really like Roland stuff.... I am biased toward Roland. Has a lot more sounds than the Yamaha but weighs around 33 pounds and has decent action.

Around $2200 or so
4) Roland RD700gx - What I am getting. I think it is absolutely killer instrument. But it is a shame that you have to step up to $2000+ keyboard to get away from having to use a friggin wall wart power supply. This honks me off. Keyboards 1-3 uses a plug in wall wart power supply.

If weight is no option then the Yamaha CP-300 is nice. (cost about the same as the Roland RD700gx, Has a flat top which is nice and built in speakers.

If all you want to play is piano. The Roland FP is nice. You can try going cheaper with some of the Yamaha P-series pianos. ($1000 and under).

I don't know anything about Kawai. I don't know anything about the new Casio stuff. I had a Casio Proline synth ( CZ-1) in the late 80s but I haven't seen any of thier proline stuff in years.

Thanks for Bosen suggestion Rico but I need to make a million first :lol: However, I've heard they are one of the top grands in the world.

Jeff, I'm looking into Kurz, Yama, and Roland. But someone suggested (Kawai MP8 model ) and said it is "unbelievable". So I searched the net and found alot of rave reviews about it, so I must give it a try with that as well. These keyboards have come along way with improvements every year to their old models as well.

cheers

So what brand is the "best" for someone like me who's on the lookout for an electric keyboard with weighted 88 keys? I've had a look into the local music shops and other interstate stores here in Oz and the all seem to stock similar products. But to be honest I'm a novice when it comes to electric keys. So here are the brands that I've seen:

1/ Roland
2/ Kawai
3/ Kurztweil (however you spell it)
4/ Yamaha
5/ Casio

I've been playing acoustic piano for along time and this is my first venture into the unknown. Please suggest any of those models or any other you wish is a good buy. Once again I'll take your suggestions and buy it based on your recommendations. Just as long as it's not 12 foot Steinway grand-LOL :D

cheers
