Hi All. It has been about 38 years since I had an electronic keyboard. It was a JVC and even back then it cost me £1000 new. It was an easy keyboard to use because it had physical buttons to select the various functions and had loads of features. It has been a long time but if my memory serves me correct it was a 4.5 or 5 octive single manual.
Now about 38 years on it has crossed my mind that it might be interesting to purchase a new keyboard. The problem is I've not kept up with musical keyboards, either single or double manual so I don't know how technology has impacted on them. I imagine that most if not all functions are accessed via touch screen or maybe a phone app.
Does anybody have any opinion or information on modern-day electronic keyboards?
Now for your information, I don't do cheap so the £150 Yamaha keyboard one might buy their kids for Christmas is not what I would be looking for but something more professional or semi-professional but it would need to be accessible. At the moment a keyboard isn't on my buy list but if I can get info about one that isn't in the 10's of thousands of pounds then I might find my interest grow. Way back those 38 years the keyboards of quality were JVC or Roland and Casio and Yamaha were a rung or two down the ranking ladder although in the 90's my uncle got a Yamaha that sounded rather good. I am here thinking of a single manual as I don't know if I have the space to fit a double manual in here. Any information or opinions appreciated. Walter.
