There's a rare vintage 16-note Akai Timbre Puppy.
I listened to Hatfield and the North at Rainbow. They were very wonderful and they made my heart a prisoner.

it is the super rare white sh 101, that episode is obviously from the 90's as they are only asking 5 dollars for it.

I have a Emu EMulator II+HD sitting to my right, and this is clearly the new Korg MiniEmulator II being released by Korg at MusikMesse in April.
And yes, it will have SLIM KEYS.

I can't reveal the source of my information other than to say it's a friend of a friend's mother who sells tickets to MusikMesse and her brother in law helps set up the Korg demonstration station.
My source also confirms Dave Possum ;) is on board and will be assisting the replication of the Korg MiniEmulator II.

The pair of horizontal sliders give it away, that's obviously a Mini-Maxi-Korg 400 :D

Given the odd number of keys it's most likely a Siel or Crumar product along the lines of the MTI Auto Orchestra or Elka Wilgamat.
Keys: Realistic Concertmate 500, Korg K25, Korg Micro X
