I just purchased and older looking digital upright from a friend of mine who had it given to him by family. I have researched the name and model over and over and haven't come up with anything other than some new models from the same brand. Here are the specs.

Brand: Bachmann
Model: PS2000
Made in Italy
Type: Digital upright?
Info: 88 weighted keys, 27 voices, midi control, 2 pedals with attached base (sustain is on left and damper pedal on right???) also has tuning and transposing controls.

I paid $120 for it since he didn't have any info on it and it was given to him. It plays nice, has loud speakers with great bass output, still in good shape. I was just curious to see if I got a good deal and if there was any info on it. I googled ALOT and didn't come up with any info on it which is strange. Does anyone know anything about this piano? Thanks

((I'll probably post pics of it tommorow))

This is the kind of great deal you can get
when you buy used digital pianos. This
will play not much differently from a
brand new digital piano costing several
thousand dollars.

Use the right pedal only. Don't bother
with trying to use the lt. pedal. The
lt. pedal does not need to be used
in playing. In more than 30 yrs. of
playing I've only used the rt. pedal.

If you don't have an owner's manual,
don't press the tuning and transposition buttons,
or any other buttons for that matter, because you
can reset the default functions and get
a weird-sounding instrument. Just turn it
on and off and use the default settings,
which are the normal piano sound.

Bachmann is a division of General Music (GEM). They're a very good company, much bigger in Europe than here. Dig around on this site, they have forums where you can ask questions:
http://www.generalmusic.us/Index.htm

or google on GEM and you'll probably find info.

Why Gyro is too lazy to type "left" and "right" is beyond me. In any event, and I know this probably isn't important to you right now, but don't be afraid of that left pedal. Gyro says he's never used it, however, he has also never provided reasonable evidence that he can play piano in the first place!

The left piano is for sustaining selected notes, while other notes remain unaffected. Sure, it can be tricky to get the timing and technique down (and very few pieces actually use it) but it is there for a reason, might as well make the most of it! By the way Gyro, it's called the Sostenuto pedal. Not the lt. pedal.

Thanks for all your posts guys ^^

Also thanks for the link and info MarkL, I checked the site and the forums are down right now. I also found the jacks for the pedals under the piano and switched them so sustain is on the right now where it should be I guess. I have been able to use the other voices which all sound great (except the rhodes simulator, my brother has an actual fender rhodes and it sounds nothing like it).

I don't have the manuals or anything so Im def not messing with the transposition buttons or tuners. I can't find my digital camera usb cable to upload photos but I will as soon as I do. Thanks.
