I am not a keyboard player though my wife has played piano for many years. She has a piano, but it's on loan.<br /> <br /> I am looking for a keyboard for mmyself that has only a true piano sound and Hammond B-3 sound.<br /> I would like weighted keys, decent quality, modest price. <br /> <br /> Anyone have any recommendations ?<br /> <br /> Thanks<br /> <br />

In 2006, I bought a Roland ep760 digital piano/organ with weighted keys. I don't use it very often so it is in like-new condition and it continues to work fine. I paid $760 for it in Edmonton, Alberta and this price would pretty much match those at Musician's Friend and Sweetwater. However, if I had my time back I would have opted for a more expensive Yamaha or Roland keyboard. Well, not necessarily a Roland or Yamaha but a reputable brand. The higher-priced stage pianos have way more features.

Can you define &#8220;modest price&#8221? Lots of &#8216;boards out there with weighted keys and decent acoustic piano & B-3 sounds.
