    Hey everybody!

    Can anybody tell me of any keyboards available out there which compare to the Alesis QS8.2, but don't cost quite as much?

    I'm wanting to purchase one as a gift for a friend, but he won't accept anything as expensive as the Alesis (even though that's the one he really wants).

    I will greatly appreciate any/all comments.

    Thank You -- HAPPY HOLIDAYS!!!!

    :D

    It depends on what he is going to use it for. I have Alesis boards here that I use for some of the strange synth sounds they offer and live they are fun. If he is going to use it mainly for a piano then I would suggest the Kurzweil sp 88 for an inexpensive alternative. It doesn't have all of the sounds and features but it is a much better sounding keyboard. I have also found that many of the cheaper Yamaha keys sound damn good for the money also.

    Dave Runyan -

    Thank you so much for your comments. My friend is going to be using it for different sounds (not just for the piano). I will check out the others that you suggested, though. Thanks again! HAPPY HOLIDAYS!!!
