    I've been keyboarding as a hobby since I was a teenager, and I write my own stuff. I've gone through quite a few keyboards, starting with Casios that were essentially toys, but my most recent gear consists of an Alesis QS-7 and a Yamaha PSR-640.

    Right now, though, I've been transitioning to soft synths and using my Alesis as a controller. I bought Logic Pro 9 and am loving it.

    I also recently bought an inexpensive Yamaha acoustic guitar. Always wanted to study it a little bit to learn the basics of playing it. Truth be told, though, I can barely play it. I pick at it now and then and can strum a few chords. But it was mainly curiosity that made me buy it.

    My wife plays the piano and keys at church. She likes the weighted keys and my dream is to buy her a Kurzweil!

    Yeah, my Alesis has semi-weighted keys, and it's nice to have. Plus it's slightly longer (more keys) than a typical 66-key keyboard.

    Kurzweil, hmm. In my mind it's always been one of those "underdog" brands. I've always heard more about Korgs, Rolands, Yamahas, etc.

    We saw and played the Kurzweil at the 2008 NAMM show in Nashville and my wife loved it. Our son also plays keys, but he's into the "synthesizer thing" more than we are. I also have a Roland TD-10 electronic drumset that I use at home to practice, so I'm partial to Roland gear.

    Who says you can't praise the Lord and rock at the same time?

    My main instrument is Pedal Steel Guitar. But I also play guitar (I have a Tele and a Les Paul) and bass. I dabble with MIDI keyboard. I have a home recording studio using Sonar X2.

    I started out on drums at age 12, (still play my sons kit every once in a while),
    trained as a vocalist,
    also play flute and dabble with acoustic guitar.

    (I didn't even know this thread existed!)
