Apparently CME make weighted keyboards for other manufacturers. Anyone know who? Casio? Korg?

I don't know for sure, but I have heard (multiple times,) that the action is Yamaha in the CMEs.

The Yamahas I've played feel better than the CMEs, and much heavier too.

M-Audio has a fully weighted MIDI keyboard too. Comes in 88-key version too for total piano range.

Thanks, ya I've tried a couple of those and I thought the action was terrible. The CME is the only one I haven't tried- I'm interested cos it has a BC input.

Yamaha use the same keyboard for their low to mid priced weighted offerings, and I really like it. If that's the CME, I'd be very happy.

But from what I've heard, the CME does not compare at all well to a Yamaha P90. So is it just a rumour that they're the same? Has anyone compared the two side by side? I'd be grateful for any opinions.
