EscapeRocks Posted October 2, 2013 Share Posted October 2, 2013 After much back and forth; debate with myself; looking at my needs and wants, I finally pulled the trigger, so to speak, on a new PX-350. So I can now join those who get looked at funny by the unknowing when they see me playing a "genuine Casio"--(John Candy quote). Anyway, as many of you know, my main board for awhile now has been an MOX8. It's a great board with great sounds. However, while I can live with the keybed for piano playing, I always longed for a true piano feel. The problem, for me, is that I was not willing to give up the Motif sounds, and I also had/have a very limited budget for new gear. I also have been discovered to have some mild degenerative disc (not mild to me) issues. I am on treatment, but as I get older, lifting heavy gear is getting harder. So, after spending some time at the local store the other day, I sauntered over to the PX350 to get reacquainted. Just as when I first played it a while back, it instantly connected with me. Yes, totally subjective, but that's all that matters. I considered the PX5s, but I have always, and still do, like the on board speakers that really, to me, make the 350 feel like I'm playing a real piano. So today I bought one! It's funny to me, how I always seem to come back around to an initial desire when getting new gear. Now don't get me wrong, I think the MOX8 (as well as the new MOXF8 I played with the other day) is a phenomenal board that gives me the needed/desired sounds with less weight and $$$$ than a Motif. I just wanted to get back to a board which primary function is dp, feels like a piano, wouldn't break the bank, and wouldn't break my back. I will be gigging with two 88 boards, and that's cool with me, I have the space, and each board is easy to lift. They both fit just fine on my Sidewinder launcher (Ax90 stand) I've got a couple weeks till my next gig, so I'll be digging into the 350, and rearranging masters and performances on the MOX. It may sound cliche' but having digital piano that feels like a piano, to me, makes my playing come alive.
