If only key action I like the Roland better. But, that is me. You might like the Yamaha P45 action.

Hope you get to try them both out and don't have to buy blind.

Happy keyboard shopping smile


All these years playing and I still consider myself a novice.

A couple of recent threads have been nearly universal in the view that the Roland FP10/FP30 key action is better than the P45's. (I've owned both and I agree!)

I have played both and own a P90, I preferred the FP10.


Yamaha P90, Kawai GL-10
