Dewwdd! That's the keyboard Richard Wright played on 'Us and Them.'

Did they use it on Cymbaline?

Personally i wouldn't pay $5 over the going rate for it. Never understood this particular phenomenon....

I could consider paying more, but to pay a lot more, it would have to be a keyboard used on the golden days of Pink Floyd, not on Division Bell and follow up tour...

I don't think there is someone that insane to buy it, but I can always be wrong...

This thread gave me gas for a k2000 so I satisfied it. Should compliment my 80s machines nicely. (no I didn't buy this guy's)

LOL ! What a crook ... ( K2000 was launched in 1991 ). What's next ? John Lennon's Arturia Minibrute for 860.000 euros ?

Richard and Jon used many K2000's on TOUR - obviously it was not used on some of those original recordings.

£110,000 knocked off the price...what a bargain.

I thought the original price was a typo - two noughts added by mistake - hard to believe that these guys are for real!

My Pro5 Rev2 supposedly has a ribbon cable from the P5 Rev1 used on darkside of the moon. I'm taking offers(on the ribbon cable, the P5 stays with me).

i can't tell if that means you're aware of it being from the 90s or if you're mistaking the k2000 to be from the 80s. either way congrats and welcome to the club!

And??? Maybe some people think this K2000 helps them to write better songs - songs from Pink Floyd - ?

It's a usual K2000 - not more - no modification which would make it to be extraordinary. It's not a guitar which is individual handmade.

Every K2000 is the same - crazy people. For this money I would invite Pink Floyd to me at home - I would have more fun.

This reminds me of the Pawn Stars episode where a guy comes into the shop with a Gibson that somebody allegedly played for Al Capone. The guy who runs the shop replies, "so? would you care if I told you I played it for Obama last night?" The guy got the point pretty quickly.

As someone else mentioned, PF had MANY K2000s with them on the Pulse tour. IIRC, they had three complete touring companies - A, B, and C. While they were playing with one company, the other two were in-transit, setting up, or breaking down their respective rigs. Cost them a fortune (I believe they actually lost money on that tour), but what a spectacle it was.

Still I wouldn't pay an extra dime for one o 'dem boards _unless_ it had the entire patch set they used during the show.

Well, no. Actually, I had a good think about this, and, if I recall correctly, Rick actually sampled all his other boards onto the on-board sampler before he removed them from his touring rig. So that would mean that yes, the onboard rom on this K2000 would be unique and special to this unit. I don't think it's worth a 1000% increase in price, but certainly I could see a unit like this sell for $20-30k.

Sure, but with that amount of cash you can buy all the original instruments and sample them into the a Kurzweil K2000, and you'd still have plenty of cash...

It's a special unit and Rick Wright sounds are surely valuable, but no way that worths that much, especially cause it wasn't even used in their classic albums and it's a common synth that's quite cheap nowadays (you can get one used for around 0.1% of what you're asking).

He has gotten 6 offers on it so far. I wonder what they could have possibly offered him. Surely he has gotten no offers exceeding a grand or so.

Even with it, I couldn't imagine anyone stroking a check for 250k for it.

Put up one of Gilmore's strats from the show and you might get 1/10th what you're asking for this vanilla synth. Silly.

A lot of Pink Floyd parts have a fair bit of isolation so... Buy this same synth for severely less and then sample any parts you need. Blingo blango
