“I’ve been playing Kurzweil pianos for many years and I think that they have the best piano sounds on the market aside from the feel being as close as you can get to a real piano. I love all the unbelievable presets that allow me to play and record all kinds of styles.”
-Roberto Vasquez, musician/composer
