I work as a single entertainer and use a Roland VA-76 for the styles and accompanying chords, and I currently use a "borrowed" VA-7 for solos and embelishment. It is a pretty good combination, but it is time to get my own. Does anyone out there use A Roland FX6, 7, or 8. I want to know if these instruments have the same incredible sounds as the VA-7, ie. horns, strings etc. As I understand it they are much more flexible that the VA-7, but I have never seen one let alone hear it. Any guidence y'all can render would be a great help

Hi raymie,

FX6/7/8 have quite a different sound to VA7/76. Some sounds are strongeron the VA series - saxes in particular, but for the most part the FX series will keep you occupied with a great mix of fantastic sounds. Plus of course with the FX you can layer and zone up to 16 simultaneous sounds.
