I am a rank amateur making noise on keyboards. I played an inexpensive keyboard for a number of years. I decided to step up to the next level in keyboard sound and spent a great deal of time researching different products. I kept coming back to the Roland keyboards, but their price was out of reach. I finally found a great deal for an FP-30 from Sam Ash on ebay. I decided to take the plunge and have not looked back. Sam Ash promptly delivered the product in excellent shape. I have no complaints and would recommend both the Roland keyboard and Sam Ash to musicians wishing to upgrade their capabilities.
