I-missRichardTee Posted October 10, 2013 Share Posted October 10, 2013 My PC88 is slowly dying, but as ancient and limited as it indeed is.. what it does DO, is a lot, from the standpoint of A Balance between Strings -( excellent ), ac bass -( excellent, if not all that literally accurate, it creates the sense of an acoustic bass without actually sounding just like an acoustic bass.. mainly through an excellent ADSR characteristic ) AP very good, if not Ivory,,, EP surprisingly good. That is four critical categories, and the fact that all four are at least very good, makes PC88 well balanced AND it sounds good in mono. I brought this up because I am considering a new Kurzweil. But new one is not the same, and I do not believe better than the PC88 in ALL categories. having not played new flagship Kurz on a gig.. I am not sure. But I have played newER Kurz's on a few gigs and was underwhelmed. The PC2x was the successor to the PC88 and it WAS an all around improvement. But iterations after it did NOT UNIFORMLY improve EVERYTHING. (This is a general theme of these companies.. they steal from Peter to pay Paul.. eg they take away the Mono piano to give you a stereo one.) Kurzweil strings are among the best, as are orchestral sounds in general- this is believed by many, and so do I Soooo that leaves AP's EP's and Basses Are they really better than PC88 Pc2x? Longtime Lovers of Kurzweil who have owned them, please provide a few cents of your sense of it. You don't have ideas, ideas have you We see the world, not as it is, but as we are.
