Re: DIY Custom Hard Cases, where to start?

I built this speaker cabinet with only a circular saw, a drill, and a few random hand tools. http://i.imgur.com/DT1WqtF.jpg and a LOT of wood putty. :facepalm: http://i.imgur.com/49F0cJC.jpg I bought the hardware from Antique Electronic Supply; https://www.tubesandmore.com/products/amplifier_parts_0...

Re: Yamaha Reface

At first glance I thought Yamaha might be targeting my demographic, namely people who've owned their products in the past (SK-30, CP-35, YC-20) and were hoping for slightly more portable versions. 37 mini keys kills that thought.

Re: When intrinsic value is surpassed by emotion... (EMS Gea

Re: Your opinion: Best all around gigging synth

Casio XW-P1 is what I gig with.

if your friend doesn't have a real clavinet/piano at home he won't know the difference.

Re: What synth should I buy for funk and prog?

it's actually really good, especially when you consider the price. I gig with mine all the time, and leave the vintage stuff at home where it's safe.

Re: What synth should I buy for funk and prog?

I find my Hohner Clavinet/Pianet Duo works well for both funk and prog.

Re: Greetings From Yamaha USA Pro Music Customer Support

here's the thing Bob, you need to come in here as yourself, not as a corporate entity. Then tell us who you work for, and why you've decided to join us in here. I know it's hard out there, and you need to ask around about what people want in a synth, but there are no easy answers in here either. als...
