I purchased a vk-7 on ebay. I love the sounds. Someone attached weights under the keys with some pink gooey adhesive that melts and runs (thicker than molasses) when it gets warm (left in the van). Are these weights from the factory, and does anyone know what the pink stuff is. I have tried dish soap, alcohol, acetone, oven-cleaner, goo gone, gasoline, and more. Nothing disolves this pink gooey mess. This goo gets between the keys and they stick to each other. The only way I have been able to get them apart is by scraping the goo with a metal blade. HHHEEEEELLLLLLPPPPP

I have just acquired a Roland VK-7 off of ebay. The sounds on this unit are amazing and very user friendly for editing and saving your own custom tailored sounds. The rotating Leslie , percussion and reverb and distortions and Orchestral sections are also excellent. I have a Korg Triton Extreme 88 that I use for gigging and the addition of the VK-7 is going to be the missing link .

i used to have a hammond L122 with a 760 leslie but realized after trying this beast it had to go the vk7 is the best out of all the clones i have tried the leslie is brilliant i tried the vk7 with the 760 then with a fender sfx stereo keyboard combo and it blew the leslie away ok put it next to a b3 and the purist would know the difference but who wants to lug 300lbs of organ around when you can get a sounds just like it i also prefer it to the vk8 also because there is no display on the vk8 top piece of kit

I had owned a Korg CX-3 before this & thought this was a blessing after years of lugging around a B-3. I'm 52 now & own a Roland VK-7 and what a difference from the CX-3. The top end doesn't get lost, it's full of body, and the bottom end as well. I don't use the orchestral part at all, just the B-3 sounds. It has about 8 banks so you can save your setting & a drawbars only. You just have to move the drawbars in any setting to activate in live performance. Percusions,reverbs,& overdrive are very impressive. The leslie section as well is impressive. Your able to adjust the speeds individually for the upper horn & lower horn. It's is easily programable for the novice. For people in the crowd that like a Hammond sound, I've gotten a lot of nice remarks. I'm currently working part time in a 6 piece unit playing big rooms, and used to need an 18" & horn combo to get the big sound, but switch to a 38# Ampeg Porta bass 2x12 that has a driver and carries 400 watts @ 4 ohm... I also use a JV1000 with modules for piano & other synth sounds. I highly recommend the Roland VK-7 for anyone who wants that Big Hammond Sound.

As a foot note: I've tried the Hammond,New CX-3,diffent models I don't recall, some thru Motion Sound, and I'm not as impressed with the Roland VX-7 I own... I believe there is a VX-8 out now, but if there is I'm happy with what I have.

Best Regards to all.
