Our high school purchased a Kurzweil PC88 in 1999 and the choir really enjoyed it for about 6 months. Then one day, during rehearsal, the pitch lowered and then raised. To make a very long (five years long) story a little shorter, we have never, ever been able to trust this keyboard again. We have had it in the repair shop twice (about a 1 1/2 years total shop time) and the final word was that the store could not fix it and the company (Kurzweil) did not respond. Right now, the keyboard is sitting in the closet and we are raising money to buy another, and hopefully much more dependable, keyboard. Guess what brand that it won't be.

Ive been playing keys about 30 yrs and I bought a pc88 in 96. I still have it, but I retired it to my my buddys studio. I got so used to its action that when i switched to yamaha I had trouble pounding it so hard. The sounds are as good as any Piano or organ out there, and on disc running stereo it rules the studio. The one down side is.....IT'S HEAVY!!

I have a problem. I have loved my PC88 for years, and outside of replacing the battery a few times it has been a great instrument. Recently though I've had a problem with the volume dropping out. I press the "panic" button and it is restored, but sometimes only for a couple of keystrokes. I've tried and tried to contact Kurzweil support to no avial (of course). Any suggestions besides chucking into the drink? Please e-mail me at

I've been playing PC-88's for about 10 years now and have found myself like the older musicians that never want to give up their equipment to try something new. I just couldn't be happier, i don't think! Anyway, i love this board and i'm looking to get another one soon! Any information on where to get another one for a good price would be much appreciated. thanks.

I bought a PC-88 several years back, and really love the board.(In fact, I'm buying a second as we speak) .As far as digital pianos go, the internal piano samples beat anything else out there hands down.. I have performed on the Korgs, Yamaha, Alesis, Roland (One of the WORST piano sensitivity responses!) my needs are for acoustic pianos.. I play jazz, funk and latin... I also like some of the rhodes sounds on it.. The action and response on the Yamaha's are actually very good, better than the Kurzweil, but the piano samples are much better in The kurzweil. If weight is a concern (Actually, I'm lugged around MUCH heavier keyboards than the kurzweil) Another possibility is to buy the Yamaha compact digital pianos, and buy a kurzweil module and use will get the best of both worlds..a little more complicated, but another option..As far as the guy who hates the PC-88...Do you wanna sell it?
