I sold my PSR3000 and bought the PSR-S900 not only for the upgrade, but because of the mileage on my PSR3000.

I always own two of the keyboard that I perform on every day in case one goes bad - and so I don't have to drag a keyboard in and out of the house just to practice and edit my collection of styles, registrations, voices, and multipads.

When I once inquired to my service tech about the contact strip, he told me that it would have to be ordered. I hope that you don't have to wait too long.
