I’m looking for 88 key arranger. Or 76key weighted arranger keyboard.
I’m only familiar with clavinovas and korg pa588.

Any others out there ?

Not that I am aware of as they are too large for most houses, (At least outside the US where 99% of arrangers are sold) and they weigh too heavy for those that gig, hybrids like the clavinova are the only way to go.

Problem solved .

88mkeys and high end arranger capabilities forces you to Ketron SD40 or the upcomming SD90 pro..

Best 88 key arranger is currently the Korg Havian 30, but the arranger part is the low end pa300.

The best 88 key arranger workstations still came from General Music. But thats long ago.. they where truely high end in their time.

While it’s not state of the art, I do enjoy playing my Korg Havian at home. Mostly I just play piano on it, but it’s nice to some rhythms and styles to play along with. The chord sequencer is awesome!

Now that’s an interesting arranger that I haven’t heard about. How old is it ?
