I was wondering if anyone had bought the XK-3c and what they think of it and if they own the bottom manual, pedals, or just considered midi to another keyboard to make a dual board.

Im really really really itching to get one!
The first time I played one I fell in love with it! It has perfect tone, and touch. The other features are great too.

Just a bit out of my price range though!

I used to own a 1947 or so Hammond CV. I will say that you cant beat a real hammond, but man that XK3 sure is close!

Yeah I hear ya. I'm trying to find a dealer that has one of the systems set up but still looking. It can be written off though 100% over 7 or 8 years if you're a musician paying taxes on gigs I do believe.

Yes going to sweetwater and stuff you can get good monthly payment options. I just need a job at the moment to cover for that.

Check your tax situation. I haven't bought anything over $1500 for a while, but you might be able to write off the whole thing at once; you might even be required to.
