I have asked my music supplier if the Bk-7m is discontinued. They replied yes. Anyone else to verify? If so, what are other options?

Whats the latest? Ketron SD-90... if you want to pay 2700 Euros ($3200US, or over $4000Cdn). For that much, it could stand up and play the accordion for me, and I would still pass... lol
Lots of BK-7ms floating around. Join the facebook BK7-m page and a few of the Roland V-accordion groups as well as keep an eye in places like Craigslist, they pop up fairly often. I found mine in a pawn shop for around $500US. Another option is a used Ketron X4, great sounds good quality, but a bit bigger/heavier. Brand new that one cost me $2000Cdn back in the day.

losthobos said:Thanks Larry.... Not sure it's what I'm looking for now as still sounds a bit synthetic and I've enough on my hands trying to learn the accordion without worrying about programming
When I'd got in touch with manufacturers they gave me their obviously biased opinion and gave me the impression that they'd recorded live drummers and you could patch four bar loops etc together much like someone adept with a sampler would... Not sure why it still doesn't sound Live.. Really grateful you've taken time to enlighten me.... I'll keep my cash and try find a brush drummer to play along with... Best wishes Terry
