What keyboard for about $350: new or used?

Postby anvi55 » Sat Feb 20, 2021 7:34 pm

I need advice on the following dilemma: I'm setting up a music room with several instruments so that I can invite friends to make some music together.
Now I need to decide what keyboard to buy… lots of different choices, for example: a new Yamaha PSR-EW310 or a used Roland GW8?
The price is about the same, of course the Roland was in a higher class when it came out, but maybe the technology made a lot of progress in the last 10 years… any comments?

What type of sound is most important to you? Piano, electric piano, synth sounds, etc?

Do you have a specific genre you want to play?

There's such a wide choice you might need to narrow down what your exact needs are.

I just need a good grand piano, electric piano and hammond organ sounds, but I was more interested in hearing from people who know these two keyboards about the quality and feel of the keyboard itself.
