I'm curious to what kind of car Gyro drives.

Probably one of them there Smart(?) Cars.

I could fit one of them in the trunk of my '55 Cadillac.

Shucks, come to think of it, he'd only need one seat, one wiper, go and whoa pedals, and one working door.

Maybe he's got a scooter, or a Gyro-copter?

Snazzy

ps. Just funnin' with you, Gyro. wink

You could give it another try with the wooden stand (unless you are using it already), the sound should be much improved. But if you hate the touch of the P-85, buying the stand would be throwing good money after bad, so better get something else altogether!

I don't hate it.

But I've been thinking of something similar with low weight, like the CDP-100 (only 11.5 kg), but the sideway stability of the keys on the CDP-100 stopped me. And the weak piano sound on the P-85 is almost ok, because I play in a resident building so I _have_ to keep the noise down. The Harpsichord 2 is even quite good, my third favorite voice on the P-85.

I only want more of everything; sound, key action, feeling, voices, effects and a modulation wheel. *just joking*
