I'm particularly interested in the lower end, semiweighted keyboards like you might find in sub-$200 keyboards. For instance the ICON line is semi-weighted and $150 (for the 49 key version). I'm told Icon doesn't actually manufacture the keyboard itself, but it seems to inexpensive to be Fatar. Any clues?

Some like Akai and Alesis and Novation and M-Audio make their own.

Others buy from various manufacturers, (lowest bidder) ie. Fatar, Yamaha, Korg, Roland, Casio or almost anyone in the business who has the moulds and the manufacturing facilities.

I have no idea who makes the Icon keyboards for them but it literally could be any of the companies I've listed above.

You could be right about Alesis. Now that I think about it I think Novation also sources from Fatar.
