Yamaha Motif ES 8 Review
Yamaha Motif ES8
Though this keybord plays great and the tone of the samples are amazing. Most real sounding piano I have found. I would never purchace one of these keybords again. It has been an absolut nightmare for me. These keybords don't seem to be very sturdy and in my opinion are not road worthy. I have moved it minimally for a couple of gigs and that's it I mostly stays in my studo but The display keeps busting ( something to do with the ribbon cable coming loose I think). It is currently in the shop again. and yes I have a flight case which I use to transport it with. This is a real pain as it cost a hundred bucks at least just to get it looked at every time. plus I at least two weeks of loss of use each time. I have never had any problems like this with my korg. It can actually take a beating I actually dropped it once and it was fine thought it would be busted. Never dropped the motif always baby'ed it but it breaks. I do not suggest that this board be moved period.
