Don’t know, Saul, still at 5 with problems to 3 without. That’s not encouraging.

Yeah but taken in context of how many people have visited the thread and the fact that if you put 'Yamaha MODX Noisy Keys" into Google we are the first hit, I would have thought, if it were a major issue more people would have commented and voted?

We are also third in Google if you use the search term "Yamaha MODX Problems". So either people don't have any issues, don't know how to join the forum to comment or just can't be bothered to comment because they found the info they need and move on?

Personally if I had issues with the MODX keys I would definitely want to be making that known on a lot of sites and certainly one that has 'Yamaha' in the title ;)

True. I read about the problem in a few threads, but those posts could be coming from the same customers, idk.

Yeah I was just checking prices and noticed they had climbed back up. The cheapest I found for the MODX8 was PMT at £1259 and I think it was around £1199 just a few days ago.

PMT also have the MODX7 at £1099

Rimmers have the MODX6 at £1048.99 but I think the extra £50 for the MODX7 from PMT is definitely worth it.

Here in the US I'm convinced that price fixing occurs regularly.

You can search the Net all you want for these boards, and the prices are always the same at all of the online stores. ($1299 currently for the MODX6)

Yes, it occurs regularly because the United States Supreme Court said it was lawful and took the side of business over consumers overturning their prior Decision of three decades ago stating the opposite.

You really don't have great consumer laws over there do you :( Surprising really. Aren't the government and the courts supposed to be there, working for the people not the other way around? Yet it is always business and lobby groups who seem to control everything.It's much the same everywhere but here in the UK, as far as retail goes anyway things are heavily weighted in favour of the consumer :)

Well, I don't want to get on a political rant, but---as you can see from our horrible healthcare system--profits take precedence over people in the U.S.

And recently that concept has accelerated as the foxes aren't merely invading the D.C. henhouse, but are now running it.

Ha ha, well Kent that is why we have the "Don't Get Me Started" section on the forum. The perfect place to blow off a little steam. And lets face it we have plenty going wrong on both sides of the pond at the moment ;)

Still, if you play your cards right you can get an additional “15% off” at Musician’s Friend and similar outlets, even on Yamaha.

I think a lot of stores will knock something off the price but most people simply never ask and just pay the listed price. That is particularly true in the UK as we don't have any tradition of haggling over new goods.

True.

It's not considered "British" to haggle (don't y' know?) :roll:

But I wonder if walking into a shop these days when you're "holding-folding" might still "Dangle the Carrot" so to speak?

If you don't ask, you don't get . . . :lol:

When I bought the E3 expansion cards for my first Fusion, I asked about a discount for "Bulk Purchase" . . . . ?

(Well, I was buying TWO cards) . . .

The guy laughed, and gave me a discount (albeit small) for having the NERVE to ask . . . :lol:
