"Great sounding keyboard"
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
The Yamaha modx8 is a wonderful keyboard overall, I picked up this board about 8 months ago. From that point it's been a joy exploring. I am a musician that travels and plays out regularly. However the downside to this keyboard it's in its hardware. For the price point to be what it is I expected the mechanics to work better. Don't get me wrong the sounds are great.. However not even a month after I got the keyboard some of the keys started to stick and crack. Parts of my touchscreen is unresponsive. This makes the workflow frustrating. Overall if you're serious keyboard player I would recommend you spend the extra money for the montage. This is a great sounding board built Cheaply.
