From all my keyboards, and there´ a lot, Tyros 5 has the best, most professional mechanics. It´s almost unbelievable how smooth, silent, and incredible to play on such pleasure. It´s very different from other keyboards like Kurzweil, Roland, and even Yamaha poor ones.

I´d like to know if Yamaha has other keyboards with the same keyboard, but much less expenvice. I need other keyboards to stand avove and under my Tyros, but I don´t want a noise, loose, bad keybed, because after playing a Tyros 5, nithing comes close...iis there ?

It's call an FXS key bed.  (correction... FSX) The Motif XS keyboard has the same key bed.  Maybe other Motif models as well.

The Tyros keybed is the best and great to play on. The high quality bed also allows nice initial touch, sensitivity, touch off, and of course after touch control. Add this to playing with SA and SA2 voices, and you are offered exceptional control over authentic sound voices.

I have played some high quality organ keybeds, but absolute pleasure playing my past Tyros3-4, Tyros4-5, and current Tyros5-5 twinset combos. Anything less now feels like a toy and very plastic-like. The best midi pedal-board I tried, is the Roland PK-6. Great feel, touch sensitive, quiet, and really like the Octaver Bass switch, to instantly add an octave to your bass notes to thicken up any Tyros 5 organ voice assigned to the pedals.

A small correction to Joe's answer: it is called a FSX keybed.

It's the same keybed as the previous FS keybed, only the FSX is more environmental friendly.

Yes, indeed. The keybed of my S970 is very plactic-like. Piano playing is very difficult. So I wish, the PSR-S series had the FSX keybed as well.

Dihelson, to have what you ask, it would be necessary for Yamaha to have another similar instrument in production in the price as well.  ;D

Hello, Constrictor, JOE H already answered it. Yamaha has Motif XS which has the same Keybed of Tyros 5. Good, no ? If I need to purchase a second keyboard to distribute voices, it would be it.

I love the keybed on the Tyros 5, it is smooth and easy to play on. All the lesser Yamaha keyboards (arrangers) do not use this keybed but lesser quality ones.  I have played on a 970 and it's no where near the Y5 keybed.  Lloyd

So, it looks like Technics keyboards. A noisy keybed, that you play and think that the keys will brake apart ?

Yep I agree the s970 keybed is dreadful  - great shame as otherwise it's a brilliant keyboard.
