I didn't want to hijack katlaughings thread about her sister and the keyboards, but it reminded me, I am searching for a cheap keyboard that could be used for 4-part arranging. I have a cheapo one ($30 in a pawn shop) that is great for picking out melodies, and it will sound 2 notes in a chord at once, but the other (third and fourth) notes don't sound.

Saw a cheapo keyboard in a store, lo, it did the same thing. It's like there's only two 'reeds' in there.

How much do I have to spend to get a keyboad that will give me 4 notes? do I have to jump to the $200 and up category?

And katl, if you would care to share the brand name of the people that are giving sis a break on her students keyboards, I'm sure they wouldn't mind. Might as well spend money with friends as enemies....

Any of Yamaha's should be multi-note, and you will also want touch sensitive.

If you interested in midi look at the PSRGX76 on the yamaha.com. Yes, retail $200.

Older versions are on e-bay.

Hi, Patty

I'll ask my sister. We have a Casio CTK-558(I know not the top of the line) that I bought, on sale, at Sam's Club a couple of years ago for about $135 and it has been fine. My brother has played excerpts from his piano concertos on it in order to make midis; lots of chords, etc. with no problem.

I'll get back to you when I hear from my sister.

Thanks,

kat

Thanks, that's sure more than I knew before, I will check on those. If anybody else wants to weigh in, smaller is better. Only use a couple octaves, love having a little board that can be used at the computer, in bed, in the car, wherever.
