For Sale is a used, but EXCELLENT condition ROLAND FANTOM X8 , which comes with a SRX-11 Complete Piano board already installed.
I play piano. I really don't play organ, synth, electric piano,...and so forth. I bought this keyboard new a few years ago (shortly before the G8 first appeared), as it had the most piano-like action of any keyboard I tried. It also had great onboard piano sounds. To get even better piano sounds, I purchased the Complete Piano SRX expansion board separately.
This keyboard has been in my smoke free home studio since. I play it from time to time when my wife and daughter need some rest from the loudness of my acoustic piano in the living room. It certainly has seen some studio use, but not a lot of miles overall, and it's never been gigged. You can see from the pictures that it's in immaculate shape.
I am selling this because I don't use anything on the board other than the piano module. Ever. And, the Fantom has so many options, it's just way more keyboard than I need. I just bought a new RD700nx keyboard. Even more piano-like action, and not very complicated to use.
I am starting the bidding lower than what I've seen most of the X8's sell for on eBay, even though this is the first one I've seen listed that includes one of Roland's best expansion boards. It's a really great deal.
