My first "keyboard" was a Yamaha forerunner of the PSR series. 1981 I paid $1,100 for it which was a LOT of money. In 20+ years it worked perfectly, never needed service. I gave it away and have lost track of it but it sure lasted through the years.

Prior to that I had pianos and organs.

Loved that little keyboard.

vox continental . the black keys were white and the white keys were black

must be early seventies when I bought it used.

Wish I still had it. Had a very unique sound.

Brand-new 1976 Rhodes Stage 88 piano (the leggy one). Lucky me, I mowed lawns for rich people in my teens. Everyone wanted me in their band except those who had actually been in a band with me and helped me lug the monster. I stubbornly kept it in perfect shape for 10 years of heavy gigging, then gratefully sold it for around $300 in 1986. I've never looked back.

Talk about going full circle. This is one of the first threads I replied to when I joined this forum. Don't have the D50 anymore but still own a DX.

cheers,

It was a flimsy piece of plastic that sat on top of the qwerty keyboard of my Commodore 64.

I later purchased the music expansion system for the 64, a module that plugged into the back that gave a basic FM synthesizer, and a 5 octave keyboard.

First MIDI synth, Akai AX73, still have it, and still works fine.

My first was a Bontempi toy keyboard, the second a JVC KB-500.
