What is your opinion of this product?
I am enjoying my Korg Kross 2 88 keyboard. It is pretty lightweight for an weighted 88 keyboard and easy to work around especially programing my favorites, layers and split sounds. The other option I like is you can use batteries and it has a convenient storage space on top for small accessories like glasses, mints, miniatures etc LOL. I think the library could of been tweaked a little better but the internal sounds are very good and typical Korg library. This instrument replaces my other 88 Keyboard for live performances because of the weight. A great product for the money...buy it you won't be disappointed!
