Best keyboard I've ever played


There's nothing negative I can say about this beast. Same sound engine as the montage. Such a light weight!!! The action on the keys is perfect, of course it's a Yamaha and everything they make is at pro level. I still have so much to discover on this beautiful board but so far everything is perfect. Can't wait to see what else I discover.
