Great keyboard workstation for under $2000

michaelnazareth

Hi guys,
I am new to this forum. A friend of mine wanted a great keyboard arranger for under $2000. He has owned Yamaha PSR-740, Korg PA50 among others but is looking for a new one with elaborate auto accompaniment. Please give me your suggestions of a great “current” keyboard workstation.
Thanks,
Mike

Batter you go for Yamaha PSR S910. It is a new release. For arrangers I feel Yamaha is better than other brands

You're looking for an arranger then.....not a workstation, such as the Korg M3, Roland Fantom G or Yamaha Motif XS?

My local Guitar center (the only local music shop) does not have Tyros, Korg Pa2XPro , PSR S910,etc........ Hence I posted on this forum. Thanks for your help!

I'd call Mac Hatton @ Sweetwater... extension 1358. He's very helpful with keyboard questions.

There are many choices for arrangers. While many people have opinions none is as important as your friends. Since your local music store doesnt have ones for you demo, I suggest you go to keyboards arranger section here st sweetwater and find all the arrangers in your budget. Once you do this, go to the website of the manufacturer or do a search and look for demos you can listen to. I have found arrangers by different manufacturers have distinct sounds which may or may not be what your looking for. Most of them have the same basic sets of features, understanding, that the more pay, the more features and better quality you get. Korg, Roland, Yamaha and Keytron all make good arranger keyboards. Just find information on them (specifications and features) demos to listen to, then either make a decision or come back and ask more specific questions. Good luck!!
