    welcome advice as I shop to replace current live 'workhorse' with a new keyboard. currently use either Roland FP3 or Yamaha p80 (for years now).
    I need to get it right on a couple key things, given what I cover/play re genre/gigs. (in order of importance... sort of..)
    1. grand piano on-board. looking for better than avg, full, beautiful, expressive
    2. b3 on-board. something better than usual on this, w couple to pick from, and good tonewheel control,
    3. better-than-avg action -- wtd or semi-wtd, but my playing benefits from a more advanced, sturdy, quick, responsive action.
    4. portable for gigs (over my shoulder in soft case I like)

    thanks

    As for decent organs you might want to add a Ferrorfish B4000+



    Personally I use a DS61 with a Ferrofish for personal use at home.

    Great sounding combo.
