Hi all i've got the chance to buy a Yamaha P85 for £130 and was just wondering is it worth it.

I do not need the sounds only the 88 keys and midi as i will be using another sound source.

If it's used or something, than it might be legitimate. New, this would normally sell for 500 Pounds or more.

Assuming that it's for real and in good condition than it's ok for a basic instrument. The action is Yamaha's GHS action, which is their cheapest and not especially good. But it's weighted and fine for a MIDI controller. The internal piano sample is only 1-level and also not great, but, again, for a MIDI controller, that wouldn't be an issue.

It could be a good deal, but be careful that it isn't stolen or abused.
