Some would, some wouldn't...

I, for one, would LOVE a 76 PSR910 (or the next model based on the T3!). Yamaha's flat sound CAN be worked around, not ALL my keyboards have as good a feel as my G70 (I still play them!).

And I don't want a 76 PSR INSTEAD of my G70... I want it AS WELL!

As much chauvinism as goes on on this forum, you have to assume that quite a bit of the Yamaha 'bashing' comes from those that HAD to choose otherwise because of the preference for a larger keybed. Once you have made that choice, a lot of other baggage gets tossed in to self-justify the decision. There are as many things wrong with Korg and Ketron's 76's (and Roland's last ones) as there are wrong things in a PSR or T4.

But maybe not QUITE as many wrong things as is wrong with Yamaha's current 76 offerings Time for them to make better ones!

Diki.......

Just look at whatever Yamaha's TOTL
76 keyboard arranger or synth, etc.. nd that will tell you what their marketing strategy is targeting....they have done their research and they are happy with the result obviously.

As opposed to their potential customers...

I just don't quite see the POINT of all of you working feverishly to defend Yamaha's position. It speaks for itself, and doesn't really need ANY of you to 'defend' it. And I have a right to continue my quest, whether it is tilting at windmills or not. As I have said, many times, everybody just KNOWS what Yamaha are and aren't going to do, until they do something different. I am sure, prior to the 9000pro's debut, that Ian (or someone just like him) were frantically explaining to everyone that Yamaha would NEVER make a TOTL 76. And then they DID...

That it failed had NOTHING to do with the key size. It plain sucked (and so did it's 61 stablemate).

So, you all keep rolling your eyes, and sticking out your tongues, and generally making fools of yourselves. I will continue to ask for something that every other arranger manufacturer makes, and stays profitable (you think Korg don't have accountants? ), and I will NOT quit posting about it. It is, in my view, a legitimate request. YOU, on the other hand, are not making a legitimate refusal. Just ill-reasoned 'excuses'...

And the egg will be firmly on your faces the day that Yamaha make ANOTHER TOTL arranger with a 76. That it won't happen eventually is no more conjecture than it WILL...

diki I wish they do make a 76 to your liking....I prefer a 61 but that is me ....what anyone else enjoys is not my concern...Yamaha, Ketron, Korg, Roland , I have played them all on stage.....all I care about is If I like it and it does what I need to make a living as a musician.
I am not defending anything.....good luck on your quest but right now I'd say stick with your G70 & make great music..

Roland really disappointed their loyal users by discontinuing the E-60, and of course, the G-70.

They were rare birds here in the Maritimes, Brian, although I did have a chance to play both, and I thought they were terrific instruments.

Does the E-60 use the same type SmartMedia cards we use in the PSR-3000, which are 3.3V (3V) SmartMedia?

Boys and Girls...my God..this is not rocket science..Yamaha should make a 76 note offerng..PERIOD...it is easy for them.

Why not pick up a bunch more customers..get them hooked like the others are!!

Whoever the guy in the meeting stopping this should be releived of command!
And he can take Obama with him!

The Tyros 4(PSR910 as well) has become just too good of instrument to hide behind this 'It's a home keyboard crap anymore'
It is a PRO sounding instrument!

You just can't fix stupid!
Man....why leave money on the table???

"The 76/61 horse is dead!? "

The extra 15 keys allows you to play the keyboard as close to a piano as possible.

61 keys doesn't.

It's just a preference that some people like.
