I played the predecessor and it sounded great, but the keys were way too much like real piano keys and my hands cramped up in no time at all.

Good luck,

Gary cool

Graded hammer action would be a different experience after using arranger keybeds.

I’ve played this model, and while it’s graded, I wouldn’t say it’s on the heavier side. It’s a fairly decent graded action too. If it had a mod wheel Yamaha would have sold a large number just from consumers buying it to use as a midi controller.

Hi Donny,
I had a DGX a few years ago, must have been the prior model or even earlier.
Don’t know if it’s changed, but I remember it couldn’t play a complete psr style,
I don’t think it had all the style parts ie maybe only a couple of variations or a couple of intro’s, either way, I didn’t keep it for long, having the weighted keys back then , ended up not that important to me.

Think I bought the psr1500 instead.

Looks like a nice home practice board but nothing serious as an arranger. Too heavy for gigging. If the price is right it would be nice in a corner of the studio .

Hi Donny,
I half considered one again, choice between p121 and a dgx, but , I decided against it, wasn’t really worth paying for the arranger functions, because I was buying the sx900 regardless.
Initially I was planning on having a piano in the living room, and sx900 in my bedroom / studio, but, I managed to sell my 3 korgs , plus the s950 , I had heaps of room left, so piano was going in studio.

I really wouldn’t imagine you’d be happy with one, I think of it more as a piano with styles as an add on, rather than as an arranger.

Rikki and you would be correct with that statement....
just something that passed by my desk.....
Glad your enjoying your SX900 & P121 units...

take care
