I may have to sell my beloved PA4X. Health not good these days, and I think I want to go to something lighter in weight. Sure hate to part with it, but time moves on.
I'm thinking $2,600. to US. It is in great condition.

Please Don. Don't sell your beloved keyboard. Things are going to get much better for after this rough spot. I can't think of any replacement you could consider that would be lighter than your Korg.

Is there anyway that you could leave your instrument set up at the gig?

Thank you. Actually I do leave it set up at the job. But I would like to take it home with me sometimes and I have to get someone to load it, then when I get home have to get my young, hot wife to unload it! smile Not supposed to lift more than about 20 pounds.
Another factor is that my fingers and wrists are hurting after four hours on the semi-weighted action. I need lighter keys, in direct opposition to what most people want.

To read this make me sad.
It also reminds me about that we'll never know what there is in front of us when we pass
the next curve down the road, neither what may happen within an hour or tomorrow.
All the best wishes for you Don, hope you'll find a good substitude for the PA4X.
Whatever that will be, we know it will sound amazingly good, like DonM always does.
As Donny use to say: It's not the keyboard, it's the player! smile

Gunner, if I had longer to live, I would have already purchased a Genos. I just got back from seeing a surgeon about having a ventral hernia repaired laparoscopicly. He said he that at this time, the hernia was not posing any risk, but the biggest risk would be for me to undergo general anesthesia. He said with my lung condition, plus having a couple heart attacks, I probably would not survive the anesthesia, even though it would only be a 20 to 30 minute procedure. He also told me that the pain I was experiencing was not from the hernia, but instead, my arthritic hip joints. He showed me the large amount of calcium deposits within the joints, which I will just have to suffer with. Oh well, I still have my S-950, a good supply of Jim Beam Honey Bourbon, and a bottle of morphine tablets. Not a bad combination if I could figure out how to play music while I'm totally stoned. wink

All the best,

Gary cool

Gary, didn't you see how much good music it came out of the 'Hippie age' when most all,
well, at least many, was 'stoned'?
Yes, I know you fight with bad health too, and sadly I have not much other to offer than
wish you all the best and that you can recover to be able to sail your beloved ship again.
Ai ai, Captain!

Don, you made those 970 guitars really come to life. Lighter keyboard feel and portability as well.

If your interested...could part with mine in mint condition for $1500, or special b/o for you.

Hi Don,

I can't help but noticing that the streetprice in the US of A is in between 5000 and 5500 bucks, so I guess that is going to leave you "empty-handed" if you stick to your offer. smile
You mention the keybed and it being too heavy on the PA4X so I guess what is left would be a choice between the Korg PA700/1000
and the Yammie PSR 950 or 970 ? I played both the PA700 and the PA1000 of course. The PA700 keybed imho is absolutely dreadful , I guess the PA1000 is pretty similar to the PSR series..........
Whatever you decide I hope it turns out well for you and that you may long enjoy your next choice !!!

regards
John

Hi Don, so sorry to hear that.
Have you considered leaving Korg for home use and leaving something with lighter key feel at work. Bit extravagant, but just a thought.
I sold my technics kn7000 at a bad time in my life ( not because of financial reasons) and it’s the one keyboard I’ve regretted selling ever since.

If it’s a case of wanting a change, that’s different. Hope you find something you enjoy.

Thanks John, if I were more of a piano player I'd probably agree about the keys, but I like them really light and fast!
Rikki, that's a good idea, and one I've considered. I won't be in a big rush to sell the 4x, but if the opportunity arises...
I very seldom play at home unless it's to learn a song, and I can do that with a guitar.
I will probably use a PSR S970. If my health improves, they are easy to sell, and maybe by then something else will be on the horizon. What I play will have zero impact on my audience or employer, as long as it sounds good, and most everything does now.

Hi Don, these adjustments are not fun. If you could use a like new PSR S770 I could send you mine at no charge. Better you use it than I just look at it. regards, charles

Wow, Charles, that's a great offer, but I already acquired an S970. All I have to do is plug in my USB stick and start playing! I really appreciate the offer. That is extremely kind and generous!
Thank you!

I tried to get that EA7 to sound like by BK7 did, but I never got there. I think the BK7 was the best sound I ever had as far as live on stage. But PA4X is right there with it.
I suppose I just didn't want to spend the time and effort to get the EA7 to where I needed it to be.

The EA7 sounds great but you need to spend time teaching it how to do that,...
it certainly can be done with the makeup tools in so many ways..and you can carry it under your arm home with you after the gig.

+1 to the suggestion of Roland E-A7 or even a BK-9. If weight and portability are issues, both are lighter and less bulky than the PSR-S970. Don I really hope you are back in full swing very soon!

Sorry for your setback but things may get better so take your time. If you do change I also think a BK9 would be a good choice if you can find one.
Good Luck and be well

I tried both the BK9 and EA7 for a couple of weeks each and ended up sending them back.
They are must missing too many things I like, but they both sound great.
The PA4 is now sold!

Don,

Sorry to hear of. Your health issues I can’t add much more than all the good things posted already, no matter what you play it will sound great.

Maybe I can add one thing maybe I know who bought your Pa4x. smile. Just a wild guess based on an email exchange I had with another member of SZ.

No, it's not a joke. I will use PSR S970 for a while. Genos is too rich for my blood at this stage.

Sorry to hear of the health issues...

With my recent health issues, I thought long and hard about buying Genos and Bose S1...very $$$. At age 69, I’m counting on being able to gig long enough to pay for it.

15lbs for S1 makes it very easy to transport. Genos is just slightly heavier than my S970.

A $3,000 Genos probably isn’t out there yet....but not that far away from $3,000 if you look around.

I've had to part with a prized instrument for one 5 lbs lighter and may reduce still due to health issues so I know the feeling. A PA 1000 is about 2 lbs lighter than per 970. Not a consideration? Or is keybed heavier touch 6than 970/same as pa4x?

I didn't want to deal with a new learning curve right now. I can simply plug my USB drive into the S970 and start playing!
I'll build a few more Registrations, but that's about all I'll have to do.

I'll tell you........the 1000 in a good sturdy 61 case with wheels, is heavy!! A flimsy 76 case, with wheels, was lighter and easier to move the 3X around. Now lifting it on a stand is a different story.

I was thinking about the PA 1000 for you too.
Wouldn't it be very similar to the PA4X?
All the best to you.

I think Don's mapping to a 1000 is a lot more time than just sticking his stick in smile

I'm hoping to be able to use my .SET 1000 set to a 4X.

Congrats on the sale of your PA4X.

The S970 is a very versatile keyboard; should work well for you.

That said, hope you get a chance to play a Genos sometime.

There are not too many Don Ms in the world. If he is selling something and I want it I know it is in great condition and the price is right. No bargaining or doubting.

I had someone say that if they were buying a keyboard they would ask me to do to for them because I know how to get a good deal. NO! I sold my pa4x with a Paas speaker for $2,400. I bought another Pa4x because I missed having one; it is one great keyboard. I am also working on enjoying the dollars I have made in the past.

I'm not worried about the Yamaha, but in the back of mind is a PA5X. PSR ????, or even Genos if the price were to fall dramatically. I will have to make some massive strides in health though.

Wallet is dry. My first hospital bill was $68,000. Many more to come. Good insurance, but deductibles and co-pays add up.

surprised surprised surprised

When see this it reminds me that we complaint about zillions of things in Norway, but our healthcare and sosialsystem most be close to the very best in world.
The bills will not kill our wallet unless it's about totally stupid things such as 'fix my face, fill my boobs and butt with silicone'.

Don, I really hope you will get the chance to try Genos, you're going to make it shine!

When the doctor and your wife says yes, and I am sure they will – come down and warm up.
If you can teach me to sing good country I’ll pay for your trip.

Don's dinner won't cost much since he's only having a small salad (no dressing) and (unsweetened) herbal tea. MAYBE a (small) side of Tofu if he's been good.

But I'm trying to eat healthier too ... There's been no booze since Ash Wednesday(but that's annual thing), except for one glass of wine on Sunday ... cut way down on bread and pasta ... the only bread in the house is whole wheat ... Down 9 pounds in 3 weeks, would have been more but really cheated on Sunday ...

Omg!! That is unbelievable. Basically our medical is free, but you do get stuck on waiting lists for what they call elective surgery. We can get health insurance for private hospitals etc but you do end up slightly out of pocket going down that route.
The public were jumping up and down a few years back because the prime minister dared to mention a $7 co payment to go see a doctor. Mind you this was only for the ones who could afford it . That idea got trashed.
Maybe we should have the USA health system, then they’d really have something to complain about.

I’m still dumbfounded at the cost.
