Funny, I just sold mine after a long period of contemplation to fund a MD UW. Damn, I could not be happier.

Happy 909 anyway!

Have them both and the UW would go way before the 909. :toothy10:

I've owned two 909's and I'm sure I will never own a 3rd....but I do enjoy playing with them.

I'm on my third 909, unfortunately... it's had to go away again - for repair! So it wasn't a happy 909 day for me.

I thought I would regret selling the 909, but I don't(so far), the MD is a better fit for me. Only time will tell...

Yeah, of the 909's and 808's I've owned it's always the 909 that needs to go to the doc....
