Someone got a wee bit offended because I basically described him in my post...
I'm not offended because I'm not a snob. I just don't know why you waste your time commenting on the culture of a message board with which you obviously take some sort of umbrage.
As someone who's played keyboards live, many times, I have found quite a compelling correllation between casing material quality and length of life.
Call it what you want, I'm just sharing my experience.
Troll away, though. Enjoy yourself.
