You beat me to it, Bill...I thought I was the only one who picked up on it.

Good one.

I have NEVER put down the S900 with regard to it's guitars, basses and the amazing SA sounds. As a DIRECT comparison with a Roland for the music I do NOW, these do not sway me, but as I quite specifically stated, in the event I need to do a real OMB show (no guitarist to help out), the lack of punchy drums and the polished sound turn finally to ADVANTAGES, and the guitars have no equal.

Please don't lump me in with the 'brand fanatics' here... I am prepared to use whatever is the best for what I am doing at the time. Yes, the keybed will be a step back (but so would moving to ANY other arranger including Rolands!), but the addition of realistic guitars would more than compensate. But the drop to 61, with it's inability to be able to play two handed piano parts make the current S900 a 'pass'.

Hi,
no, I wouldn't drop my SD1 for a 76 note Tyros.. I wouldn't even drop my PSR1500 for one.
I'd definately drop the psr for an arranger module version though.

best wishes

Ian,

Have you played a Wersi OAS 7 instrument? I've owned Yamaha's top arrangers and I can't say they are even on par with the Wersi in sound, OS, ease of use, or build quality. Yamaha makes some nice sounding gear for the price point but in my opinion not comparable to the Wersi by any stretch. Build quality on Yamaha arrangers is sub par compared to many other manufacturers. Spending $2K or more for a plastic toy isn't my idea of money well spent.

No I haven't played a Wersi...we don't see them in my neck of the woods.

I imagine it is a fine instrument...it would have to be impressive at that lofty price point.

They do seem to have their own market niche and a loyal following.

My answer was in line and relative to the question. You just don't get it sometimes.

Although the question was “Would you Drop your current 76 key Arranger for a New Yamaha TYROS with 76 Keys?”.

The answers do not say much for a Yamaha 76 key arranger it only address those who would switch over from one brand that has 76 key to a next.
