Not endorsed by but I've played Kurzweils for years but I have recently jumped over to the Nord guys and currently use the Piano 88 and absolutely love it. Rarely on the gigs I play I will need anything other than a piano sound. Still, its hard to beat a good Steinway or Baldwin grand, though! I've also got a vintage Fender P-Bass that I truely love as well.
