According to your post linked above, you purchased the MP11 for $500.

Are you saying that you've sold it already, just a few days later?

Wow, nice work!

Did you fix the issues reported by the seller?

Perhaps it might be courteous to update your original thread with this relevant information, especially given other forum participants provided suggestions and advice.

Cheers,

Would you say a Roland RD-150 is worth It for 125 bucks, it has one key that doesn't work.

The RD-150 is 20 years old.

They should be paying you to take it away.

At some point in history Roland had problems with hammers breaking. I don't remember when it was and which models are affected. But Rolands from that period are best avoided. It may start with one key not working and soon there are 87 more.

Is a broken digital piano worth 125 bucks, if you don't yet know how much the repair will cost?

Or are you okay with 87 functioning keys?

Ah, the RD-150 isn't affected by that problem:

Quote
I’ve seen the plastic hammers that are used in the (older) RD-500 and the XV-88 which I owned and those are notorious for breaking. [...] Luckily the RD-150 uses metal hammers.

If I were to get the kurzweil for 470 would it still be out of the question?
