hi squeak
thanks for the response i loved my mz 2000 it had brilliant sounds but i sold it (wished i hadn`t) and bought a solton ms 50 which is also a good keyboard with realy good saxes and plenty of good organs but it still fell short of the mz i dont do much in the way of editing sounds on keyboards i mostly just use the presets that are on board i think the mz represented good value for money as compared to the yamaha psr keyboards which seem to hold a much higher price i am in the same boat as yourself now as i cant get my hands on another mz but the wks seem to be readily available i think i will wait a few days then decide what to do
