Keyboard Hunting

Not entirely sure this is the right thread, but I'll give it go. I'm looking to get myself a pretty decent Keyboard, but no idea where to start... Could anyone point me in the right direction please? Be it brand or whatever.

I used to play piano/keyboard, I'm talking years and years ago mind, so I'll be practically learning again also... But I don't think it would take me long.

The most important thing for us to know first is what budget you have in mind, and what you'd use the keyboard for (live or just the practising now)

If you want something rather expensive but decent quality Roland make some fantastic ones.

This is a bit to vague to give a good recommendation so as others have mentioned maybe you can roughly define the following:

Full 88 keys needed?
Weighted keys needed?
What kind of sounds and what quality do you want?
Transportable for live use?
Need a case with it?
Budget.

For example. I have an 88 key, fully weighted Casio Privia. It's not that great, but it gets the job done for what I need and didn't break the bank. I play mostly classical and other stuff with a piano sound. The other sounds on it are not great, but I use some vst's for recording other things. This may or may not be at all your goals.

Very black and white: if it's between Yamaha and Roland, go Yamaha for feeling and Roland for sound. I love my FP-5, sounds great - plays okay.

If you've got to weigh up feel vs sound, then consider leaning towards feel, because MIDI/USB means you can control sound modules, samplers, VSTs etc.

Thanks guys, I ended up getting a rather basic one for Christmas as a gift, pretty decent for beginners, even though I used to play piano years ago. But ideal for someone beginning to learn again I suppose. Pitchmaster i think it is. Thanks anyway.

I use a Roland FP-50. It's awesome!

If money is no object, many people bang on and on about the Nords.
