Doepfer PK88 ($749) or Doepfer LMK2+ ($999)

Kickass Keyboard Action, better mechanism than Fatar or Kurzweil.

Wow Kirby, thanks for pointing the PK88 out... I've long been looking for the most bare-bones 88 key controller possible, this looks like it!

Kirby: as far as I know Doepfer uses the same keys like the K-series... and as far as I know they're both from Fatar... :roll: but perhaps I'm wrong.

Best action of any portable keyboard IMO is on the Kawai MP9500 digital piano... my second choice would be the GEM ProMega (2 or 3)

@ IMax!

Doepfer may use the same keys, but they use a different hammer system.
I mailed to them one time and they explained it to me, if you want, i can forward the mail to you, because it's in german.

@ Drusillus: The PK88 is cool. It only sends note on and off and pedal messages, but that's enough for me. It also looks very nice :)

@Kirby: thanks, if you could mail it to daniel@7amplified.de . I've seen a small pic of the hammer action at the doepfer-website, and it looked like the hammer action in my K-2500. And after reading they're from Fatar I was sure they are exactly the same.
