Digital Pianos - Synths & Keyboards

I'd be pretty impressed if a repair man could fix such an old piano. I hope you weren't too attached to that $50. If anything were wrong electronically it seems unlikely you could get any replacements.

Digital Pianos - Synths & Keyboards
The kind of nitpicking in this thread is one of the reasons I got of PW for a while. I think it's great that Roland (finally) makes the leap to full modeling and in it's new line. And the keys we're already good and I can imagine, they've improved wi
