'Nuff said? Naaaa.

As a clinician I've done MANY road trips with Tyros keyboards...on and off planes, in and out of trucks, vans etc, and never had a failure....not one.

The E-80 is surely a more "home" arranger, especially because of it's very heavy weight and built in speakers....I surely wouldn't want to be lugging one around, especially in a OMB situation.

There are a lot more pros using Tyros than Roland E-80...ever wonder why? In fact, you could count on one hand the number of E-80 giggers on this forum....many more Tyros users.

Now....that's 'nuff said.

i believe it's really not relevant what everybody else say or does, it is only you can decide what's best for you. if you ask it as a statistic, you bet there are alot more tyros users than e80, but that means nothing for you as a player yourself. the best way it's not to compare the number of user, but what your needs are and your own preferences.

Telmo,

Any reason why you are not considering Korg PA2XPro or Korg PA-800?

Are these not available in your area?

Telmo, now aren't you glad you asked?

George Kaye is trying to be objective here. FWIW, Roland continually shoots itself in the foot with its arrangers because it refuses to market aggressively. That's not to say the products are inferior, much to the contrary. It's like asking why someone buys a Caddie or a Lincoln - there's only personal preference at that point.

Now this is a "NUFF SAID"


Very Happy ROLAND Player

Personally, I think all the comments so far were very helpful...especially mine.

To quote Roland G-70 user, friend Diki, from another thread, "The difference is that Roland US do not care one tiny bit about arranger sales, arranger promotion, or arranger users!"

This doesn't exactly inspire confidence in a potential buyer, now, does it?

Let's hope things are better in Brazil.

ian, of course all the comments are helpful! especially yours!

but still, they are simply not relevant. they can not be. they are too subjective.

telmo, do your homework and check for yourself all available materials (webs, manuals, demos, forums) and of course both keyboards if possbile!

Ok, let me be more especific. Which of these 2 arrangers are more suitable for plaing at a Church or Congregation gathering where you have to play mostly Easy Listening, Ambient, New Age stuff?? Here in Brazil, the Roland e-80 is a lot cheaper comparison to Tyros 3.
