Hey guys...new to the forum.
I am looking to buy a new keyboard. I am a solo cocktail pianist and acompanist and also i play arranger keyboard (solo or acompanying with styles).
I was thinking to buy a pa3x, since it's a great kbd and has a 76 keys version, (being a pianist...61 keybeds are killing me) when i realised i could go maybe for the Havian 30. It would seem like the perfect choise for a pianist who also uses arranger features...but is it profesional enough? Everybody says it is just for home and not gigs. Why? Is portability an issue...because frankly the pa3x has some extra kgs and that sure ain't a home keybd :p
I hope to get some answers from you guys...
Thanks in advance and all the best Smile

Own a pa3x. Not impressed with piano sounds. Actually the Casio Privia series impressed me more if you were doing piano gigs. Very portable, inexpensive. Many of the major music stores at least stock them for you to try before you buy. As for arranger, Korg is the boss!

Thank you for your answer. I am not stricly a pianist...i would say 60% - 40% (piano/ arranger) I know the Casio Privia series, i have tested some of them and they are very good, but i am in need of an arranger on witch i could also play solo piano (not cheap 61 plasticky keys) - tired of using 2 keyboards. I have not made my purchase yet, but i am starting to think about PA3x LE - decent 76 keybed for piano and profesional arranger features, not exactly at the level of PA3x PRO but a few kilos lighter.
