The clp280 has wooden keys the clp270 has plastic, but I believe they both have the same GH3 action. Is there a difference in feel. Will the difference, if there is one, apply between the clp370 and clp380.
Has anyone tried the clp 380 yet.

The CLP380 has not been released yet.

Because the wooden keys are heavier than the plastic ones, you would get a more interactive feel with the instrument. The counter-weight has to be slightly different in order to deal with the action of the heavier keys. It would feel more realistic owing to the greater weights and forces in play.

Technically the wooden keyboards are not ranked as "GH3"; they are called the NW (Natural Wood) keyboard which is considered by Yamaha to be the "best" digital piano keyboard they have available. But I'm nit-picking! :wink:
