I am about a year into my piano learning journey, but so far I have had only experience, without a teacher, on a weightless-keyed keyboard (Yamaha PSR-E373). I am making good progress and having tons of fun: I am studying from the Faber All-in-one Adult book series, in the middle of volume 2, with the classical and popular songs supplemental books. I am working through all of this, along with some other instructional videos (eg Pianote) and pieces gleaned here and there, eg some Christmas music, Bach Prelude in C, using the Yamaha Chord tracker iOS app to play chords alongside music in my iTunes library (I love me some Adele!).
I used to be a classical guitar player (learning for 10+ years, but haven't played in about 40 years!!), and can figure out my way through music theory and so I feel I have a bit more knowledge that a true beginner. I can play scales in all keys (not fast, but I can figure them out), chords in all 24 tonalities with many of the inversions, or figure them out with practice as needed.
Now, I have recently gone to an actual music store with some keyboards and digital pianos and found all of them to be difficult to play, because I have currently no experience with weighted keys. II am sure I can overcome that with some practice, even if it takes some number of months.
I am now looking to get a proper digital piano that I can grow into and would last me say at least 10 years or more. I have narrowed down my choices to the Roland FP60X and to the Yamaha P515. Different animals, you may say? Sure. There is some good in both of them: I think I prefer the sound of the P515, but I prefer the more modern look and feel, and overall user experience of the Roland. The FP90X is too rich for my blood. I can't try my hands on either of them: there are out of stock everywhere, even on demo floors.
The big question is the action. The P515 is almost universally recognized as having a heavy action, and it bothers some users, even very experienced ones. Like I said, even the GHS action of a Yamaha P125 (which I was able to try for a bit) is very heavy for me, so I am thinking and concerned that the P515 may turn into a disaster for me.
You might also think that finding a good sound (like the P515 has, in my view) is not a big deal, with VSTs being able to cover all possible variants.
Your thoughts: FP60X or P515? Should I consider others models? I ruled out Kawai, based on the ES920 being out of availability until June 2022, and all the other brands as not being in the top brands in that area, even though Casio is trying hard to be. Thanks for your help.
