zuki

the s900 is truley a wonderful alternative to the Tyros 2. I can't afford a 2nd T2 for a backup so I will be buying a s900.

Call me if you decide to go that route. i have price shopped the crap out of it and have the lowest price around I believe.

I have a written quote from a dealer I'd gladly give to you. Guitar Center will match a written quote if you wanted to buy it local

you can email me privately at djmikey1@aol.com if you'd like my help

Zuki,

I used to say the PSR-3000 was the best bang for the buck, but that title has now been relinquished to the PSR S900.

JMHO,

Gary

Hello everyone:

I own a T2 and as a backup also have the S900, very NICE. The S900 does not have all the S.A. sounds that the T2, Organs, Strings, Brass, etc. Besides the Mega sounds too.
Is a GREAT keyboard for the money.
I did have to make substitutions in my registrations with similar sounds in the S900 and it works perfect.
I also own a PA 800 that provides me with many different sounds and styles that are VERY useful too.
For one Hour jobs that also are in small venues I have use the S900 with very pleasing results, no need to bring external amplification and very LIGHT too. I am happy with it. So go for it Mikey_maestro and Zuki.

Hi Zuki,
might be worth your while working out what it is that you don't like about the S900,
and try to find out if the T2 is any different in that respect.

If there's no difference, is it worth upgrading at this stage??
I would imagine Yamaha could be due for a new top of the line arranger this year??
The T2's been round for a while.

best wishes
Rikki

Thanks all,

After playing 7 more jobs this weekend, I've decided to NOT knock a good thing.

I was rebooked for several months after my first performance at a high paying Friday night retirement community (2 hours).

I'm booked 50x per month and it's growing from there.

All of this from behind a Yamaha. It's because it can handle the live arrangements I throw its way. For my style, no other board can do that, despite their superior features.

I'm stupid for bashing the drums and seeking something different. I'm really the only one who cares.

I'm going for the T2 as my live board and the 900 in my studio. I'll add an external harmonizer and just march forward.

Now, anyone want a Ketron SD-5?? Please??

zuki

Zuki,

Doing as many jobs as you8 do, the boredom factor can enter and you can become tired of the same old sound...that's when the temptation to try something new will most likely rear it's head.

Happens to all of us...it will pass.

Ian,

When you get to the point of bordom, the best relief is not to purchase a new keyboard, but instead just download a new batch of files and work them into your regular routine--it's just like buying a new keyboard, but a whole lot less exspensive. Works for me!

Gary

You're right Gary...new styles, and maybe even some new sound combos, always give a keyboard a new lease on life.

Playing the same arrangements/tunes with different styles also helps.

If it I hadn't been so struck on the S-900's SA Sax and SA Concert Guitar, I'd still be using the 3k.

Ian
