  1. I have just purchased a new PC3. Should be here soon. I played one with the update. Kurzweil has the best piano sounds, I believe that I have heard, and I am impressed overall with the new vintage sounds and the KB3 sounds also. I would like to know about their durability. Do they hold up gigging? I've had success with most of the competitors out there. This is my first Kurzweil. Thx!
