    yamaha S90xs

    If it were lost or stolen...I may get the S70xs to replace it instead, but it's the exact same board otherwise. It's worth what I paid and more-so. I was hemming and hawing about getting this or the Kurzweil PC3x and this won out and I don't regret my decision at all. My ratings I give are only how I feel...everyone else is different though so please take my review here with a grain of salt. What matters is how YOU like it. What I find fantastic may not be your cup-of-tea and vice-versa. Nothing is perfect though and I would have given this higher marks if it weren't for the harmonic on those keys in the S6 piano samples as I stated above. This of course didn't stop me from keeping this board and it's my main keyboard. As I said, I would buy it again in a heart-beat.
  2. http://www.moogmusic.com/taurus/ Not cheap...and good luck getting one for now. Don't let the "bass" scare you away either as it has MIDI. Though it may be overkill for you....but keyboardist are really into overkill.
  3. I've installed them on several guitars with no problems at all. If I had had any problems with the first set I got, I wouldn't have used them on others. I won't hesitate to recommend these to others.
  4. Hey man, rock stars gotta eat too you know! Don't be dissing their endorsement gig....which usually just entails holding up the product for picture and then getting a check.
  5. Ok.So what about on the other end of the spectrum??..What guitarist,musician. When they say they play such and such guitar,strings,amps,etc..Because there the best. .Which musician word would you trust. ??
  6. AAAAAAAnd coming down the last stretch LP and Strat are neck and neck with the Tele trailing behind and Drums bringing up the rear....going to be an exciting finish no doubt... Understand that this poll is only for entertainment purposes only and please remember, no wagering.
  7. If you want the 70's big headstock, I would just get a Highway 1. I had a MIJ 70's reissue though....that guitar sounded real nice-like. Or get a DiPinto Galaxie 4. Headstock could be used as a weapon also.
  8. Most of the modern RIs are better-made instruments than most of the originals.
  9. someone needs to make a strat/tele hybrid Reverend has it's take on it...kind of...:
  10. Between these three dinosaurs? Les Paul. Yeah, would rather have that gnarly, rad, cool, groovy axe your slingin' in your avatar! You're right, those are dinosaurs...I'd rather play something you young hipsters play because I'm sure it sounds totally different and so SO cool!.
  11. I got a MiM Strat...it's wonderful as far as I'm concerned. Though I mainly bought it for a mod foundation. So I changed a few things from the stock. Planet Waves locking tuners, put on a bone nut, blocked the trem, totally replaced the pick-ups and all the electronics with a pre-assembled pickguard...wasn't totally expensive but all told I got a guitar that blows away a stock American Strat (for me at least) for about $650 bucks. Sure, wouldn't get that in a resale, but I don't resell my gear.
  12. Not sure...new D-28 goes for like $2200, but with a kind of "vintage" one, who knows. You should look up the serial number to see exactly what year it was made for one. Because if it was 1970, then next year it will be a 40 year old guitar as oppose to a 31 year old guitar. Not sure, but it may effect the price, but again, who knows. You may want to post this over at the Acoustic Guitar forum also.
  13. Leave them open or put the screws back in because if you re-sell it, someone may want to put the guard back on the way it SHOULD be. Honestly, LP's without guards are just...icky.
  14. While I don't like Rolling Stone magazine nor "lists" of any kind, I did find it funny they put EVH at #75 or something of the greatest guitarists of all time. Just thought that was cute.
  15. Great guitarist...just has a huge ego that I don't care for. I prefer my heroes to be humble. But hey, some people like him for his huge ego. Just wish he had done more in his career. In my opinion, he came out of the gate running with the first two albums...then just stagnated. Then turned Adult Contemporary. I mean, my mom was singing a Van Hagar song in her 70's because it was being played on her old-folks radio station. I'm totally serious. Not that there's really anything wrong with that I guess....just was weird to see.
  16. Didn't read every post...me being the lazy asshole that I am. But with everyone asking how he got this gun and how he was banned from getting this gun and if anyone illegally obtained this gun and gave it to him Could it be, I don't know...that he stole the gun? I mean, he IS a criminal, yes? Also, banning guns isn't really the answer to anything. Let's say, for instance, that a fairy god-mother came down and eradicated every gun, everywhere on the planet. No military or civilian guns anywhere. She also takes out the gun factories or wherever their legally made today. I would give it about a month or so before we start seeing guns on the streets again because let's face it, a gun is a pretty simple object for a good machinist to make. Using even the simple designs of a hundred years ago, you could make some pretty good weapons. The M1911 .45 ACP has plans all OVER the place on it's parts...and it's really a simplistic design. These aren't super secret plans on how to make them you know. Plus, it would probably turn into a very lucrative business for the "bad guys".
  17. My journey through the old jazz greats has landed on Mingus. Just bought "Pithecanthropus Erectus" and "Ah Um" from Amazon. I'm really digging it.
  18. I heard a rumor that the summer NAMM is over now...is this true?

You can't just stop instantly...but gauge it back little by little. You're taking small doses so it shouldn't be a problem.
  20. :cool:PX-330BK of new Privia, with the pitch bend wheel attachment as the model which designates stylish piano system as the base in rather unusual specification the shank. With the successor aircraft of the PX-3xx stand, it is the series which is conscious of stage use, but when you look at the specifications of the built-in rhythm and automatic accompaniment and those resist functions etc, as a stage piano of band use compared to, the combining which probably means that has supposed the concert use 1 at of electronic pianos. If privately many functions are sold, the one which is complete MIDI control function and the like, it is the air which also the demand for the band and DTM use it can unearth to do, but that probably is that does not aim excessively, although it can combine, also Privia first liquid crystal display and the like loads, it is wasted…. After it is we would like to expect to the improvement of touch, but there is no modification of hammer action itself kana? It is the repeated hitting efficiency whose excessive reputation is not good, but if the blurb is read, with mechanical it was not improvement of action, it reworked to the reaction of the sensor, how from the viewpoint of simulation of the raw piano the thing?…. Makes perfect sense to me. Especially the "rather unusual specification the shank".
  21. How about this...train to become a piano tech? How does one do that btw?
  22. Oh cool! Alesis is releasing a new synth called the "Fusion 2010"! Yeah...I just made that up....
  23. Didn't they do this once before, everyone got excited, and it turned out to be a red combo practice amp? XXX is their new line of sheet-music holders. One has a racing stripe!
  24. OOOOo wow ..!!! . Roland will ANUANCE yet a nother Technological Breakthrough! !.a New and more advanced Pc soundcard sounding Engine Cool!! 2 a OS that has more bugs than the First Version Of Windows Vista 3. the promise that the product will helpyou develope Faith and patiens in the hope of a working product and support. :love: :love: I'm sure when you wrote all that, it made sense to you...but by the time it got to us, it became just pops and whistles.....
  25. I agree...and a great way to fit in if you're just getting into online forums is to use well worn phrases like "it just doesn't cut through the mix" and "it's not a bad board, but the piano's suck" (in fact, just generally cut down every piano ever made...even acoustic ones just in case) a lot. People will think you REALLY know what you're talking about! Then pick some obscure board that like maybe 10 people used back in the 80's and heap tons of praise on it. Dealers need to stay off of forums.
