Kurzweil K2000

k2 ” This is a Kurzweil K2000 with pretty much every option that is available for this model. It has a built-in SCSI hard drive with cooling kit with all available Kurzweil factory sound banks installed and the maximum amount of memory that can be installed. The display has an EL backlight kit to make the display much more readable in low light. The floppy drive worked the last time I used it but I haven’t used it for a long time (using MIDI transfers from the computer is easier anyway).

There are a few small lines in the LCD display but it doesn’t make it unreadable and is probably fixable if you have the patience. There are (free) computer display emulators that are easier to use anyway so to me it wasn’t an issue. There is some slight wear from use but the side that matters is almost like new and all the labeling is clear and readable as it was new.

The keyboard is velocity sensitive with aftertouch and the pitch and modulation wheels work well. It also has two sliders that can be assigned to various parameters depending on the sound patch.

Everything works, all outputs are clean and distortion free, the 10 GB hard drive works very well. I will leave whatever patches are on it now.

This has been a fantastic keyboard and is still one of my favorites.” Click here to visit listing on eBay
