  1. Yamaha builds on their own legacy. They have always been in the lead on keyboards. None of these two are good enough for practicing piano. You need Yamaha Grand Touch (gt) for that. But they’re getting close. Nord buys their keybeds from Fatar.

  2. I really like Yamaha instruments. I’ve got saxes, P90s and a U3 that are all great. The place I play has a CP4 and it is not so great. Made in China. All the others I mentioned were made in Japan. The CP4 has a plastic body vs. the P90 metal body. The sounds are not as good. Additionally, a third of the key contacts have to be replaced every 8 months. On my 19 year old P90, I had to have contacts cleaned once and I replaced one key. I hate to think Yamaha has gone the way of Mackie as far as Chinese manufacturing. I don’t know where these are made but I will be more careful in future purchases.
