I had a great keyboard at the same time. I found one a year ago with buttons. It has so many great sounds and many built in songs. It is an Yamahaw.
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
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.
