I thought Kurzweil's MP10 with the Fatar keyboard didn't feel so bad. I'd compare to something like Yamaha GH (better than GHS). I personally didn't like the feel of Roland but I thought their keyboard (RD800) was more solid feeling, and of course I love my Kawai RM3. I would take the Kurz/Fatar over Casio.

I've seen kurzweil using there keybeds, Are they durable.


What makes you think so ? I tried few Fatar actions and didn't like them at all. And it looks to me that majority of people on this forum feel the same.

Well, that's subjective. I don't think any Korg weighted action is as good as the action in the Nord Piano, for example. Some might disagree, but it's not a slam dunk.


That's not saying much. As a former Kronos owner, I thought the Korg action was terrible. It is constructed poorly and has the refinement of a 1980s Hyundai.

Regarding Fatar actions, i played once on them on the Gewa digital (i don't know which one action it was though)l but it felt extremely similar to the GH3 keyboard of Yamaha. Maybe long time playing with sound on would show more difference, but on the fast glance, it is really really close, and, what i see, is not only my opinion.
So Fatar vs yamaha = equal.
