I've decided I want this board. I have a 3K and a Roland E-60 for partial trade. Anyone interested in working with me?

Thanks,

zuki

I'm curious as well.

I'll tell you the Tyros2 is a one great keyboard as is the Roland G70 I recently purchased. My intention was to sell the Tyros 2 and keep the G70. At this point I don't want to part with either, they are both great boards. If only Yamaha would make a 76 key, ah never mind! I was just day dreaming

The small foot print and 76 keys is a pleasure to play on the Sd1+......

Seems the E600 is making the rounds. What's up? On paper it looks so good.

Zuki,

I found the Tyros2 much too heavy and complicated(set up)for a busy gigging schedule.

That's why I went with the PSR-S900.

What's on the Tyros2 that made you favor it?

Ian

Although I also sold my T2 for the same navigational & other reasons I have to agree with Ian......many of the features which are good are more suited for home/studio applications & not needed for everyday gigging......you really need to access what YOU as a performer Really needs & forget what everyone else is doing.

I agree with Ian.

Be careful Zuki. The Ty2 is a fantastic board, and has many advantages over the S900.

But for your needs, it might have some disadvantages. You're the guy who does over 500 shows a year.

The Ty2 doesn't have the onboard speakers.
The Ty2 is heavier and bulkier than what you've been accustomed to.

If you are going to need to set up additional monitors for every single gig, I would think twice. Let's assume that it adds 5 minutes to every gig, even though I think it would add more. That would add over 2500 minutes per year to your set up. That's one day and 18 hours a year, at the very least - probably two days a year that you will be setting up and taking down those monitors.

Good luck,

Beakybird

I think Zuki is suffering from T2 envy
