Back to the subject, I've got Yamaha synthesizer, and my friend got a Yamaha keyboard, so I guess my vote goes to Yamaha
I have a yamaha keyboard due to price. I would love a roland but most are out of my price range.
Roland make by far the best keyboards, their hammer weighted keys (especially in the higher range models) cannot be beaten on recreating a realistic piano key feel.
Added to this roland keyboards have an amazing sound which is of course a deciding factor on which brand you opt for.
You get what you pay for basically. Roland- expensive but worth it if u have the money.
You should add Clavia (Nord) to that list. I swear by them - they're rugged and sound amazing.
I've got a Yamaha. I like it. It's been good to me for about 6 years now, and it's still a nicer keyboard than some of the cheap ones I'm seeing out today. Of course I so all sorts of different instrument sounds on it, but even the Drum Kits sound real nice.
Personally I'd like to have a Mac, and the Mac Keyboard deal... but that's just me
Over the years, I have had some great keyboards from various manufacturers. Alot depends on your playing style as to which keyboard is going to work best. I have two very old Piai keyboards that are still going strong. Key return rate is the best on these two Piais and on my custom keyboard.
I have a Nord Lead 2x and a borrowed Electro. They are both incredibly versatile, VERY durable (metal housing and not plastic), and I really do love the way they sound. The Electro has some of the best piano and organ models I have ever heard. They are also eye-catching when you're on stage, not a grey or black box, but fire-engine RED!
I do also own a Roland Fantom X6, but I don't gig with it, it is my studio keyboard.
i think roland is quite good. the tone colour of most of the roland's keyboard are good, and the most important thing is, the price is quite reasonable. i have used roland's keyboard for a few years.
i currently use a roland juno 6 (beautiful classic almost fully analogue synth) and it is amazing especially for cool sub bass stuff. i have also been using a roland sh201 which is great for really messed up synth sounds but korg are also great. the ms2000 is a nice beginner synth and both companies have a grea range of fantastic stuff. but this all depends on what you want. im more of a synth collector than a keyboard player
