That is one of the more ridiculous things I have seen. 37 key polysynth...yuck. Looks cute, I'll give it that.
I listened to Hatfield and the North at Rainbow. They were very wonderful and they made my heart a prisoner.

I get the feeling that "little keyboard, how cute" is the sentiment that led to 49 keys becoming the new standard down from 61.

They hacksawed an appreciating classic that's out of production?
This looks like a psychotropic reaction. No wonder it's so popular...

I do, weekly in fact, but still cannot stand 49 key keyboards (or less) when it comes to polysynths. Even if it's a bit harder to carry around, at least I can play what I want to play on them.

I agree, it's nice from a design perspective, but I would HATE to mutilate my 106 like that, sorry!

5 OCTAVES 4 LYFE!
