Last night saw a Kn7000 on EBay for $1,260.00. I had three of them through the years; the last one I sold to Bob, he came to Jacksonville, Florida to pick it up. Sad to say he did not look good,; very tired.

I keep hearing the great sound on my old recordings the keyboard is without doubt a winner. At $1260.00 I thought I would give it another go. This morning the seller brought the price to $1,600.00; I did not buy it. The window was fading on the left side. Is that an expensive repair?

I miss this place it was my home for many years. Im playing a Korg Pa900. The keyboard gives you every option imaginable. It has some very good instrument sounds and good strong styles but as a package it does not reach what the Kn7000 offers.

My opinion: I have owned Tyros 2,Tyros 3, Psr910, Korg Pz800 and now the Pa900. Each year they increase the amount of options; they are now too much for me, too many areas that need to be adjusted in order to get what you are looking for. My Pa900 allows me to change or replace the factory styles, and much more. I am not interested in recreating a keyboard, I just would like to sit and play and enjoy. The Kn7000 offers just that. Its very friendly.

Hold on to your Kns and enjoy the holidays that are coming.

Hi John,
You just said it all re. the KN7000 ! I still have two of them - one for gigging and one which stays set up at home. I wouldn't swap them for anything !! They occasionally appear on UK ebay and are still bringing good prices - generally 800 - 1000 ($1190 - $1488) in average condition and considerably more if in top-notch condition.

Best Wishes to you and your family for the festive season...

Cheers
Bill

Hi Bill, Nice hearing from you. Wow, life does go on. I do miss the happy and enjoyable meetings we had.

My question:
The Kn7000 I am looking at may need a new screen do you have an idea if it can replaced; and if so the approximate cost?
This sounds like the old days, Bebop and all.

Stay in good health Bill, John C.

Hey John, We'll be waiting for you to show us a thing or two now smile

I think I have a packet of hen's dental floss but no spare KN7000 screens so Bernie's K7 is a good way to go.... and also... just imagine how much he will have to pay to buy it back of you one day LOL

Bernie... I'm Shocked Haha. I hope you're having fun there. I think I've just reached 9 keyboards myself but they are all Technics as you can imagine! I just got a P50 piano, love it!

Happy Xmas All,
Mike

I will be picking Bernies Kn7000 the week after Christmas.
After selling my third Kn7000 I gave away all styles, songs, and information. I thought I would never going back to Technics.
I am not sure what Bernie has for me but I will appreciate anything youre willing to share.

Back in the saddle, John C. (Bruno)

PS, Bruno was my dog; we had to put him down about nine months ago. My wife named our new puppy Chi Chi I wont be using that name here, (smile)

Mike I owned and played every Technics keyboard from the Kn1000 to the Kn7000. I see your list of Technics keyboards; beautiful.
