Alright, I bought this because every single other band was using this keyboard. If you need to channel a rocket ship at the beginning of a song or track a hypnotic melody line over top of a pop song this keyboard will do it.

The Korg microKorg

Where else would you buy such a trendy piece of gear? Guitar Center. I waited in line behind all the gel'd hair dudes in wearing chick jeans before dropping close to $400 on my the counter to take this home.

It is a no directions needed plug n play keyboard. Pitch bends and tone wheel is super cool. In a matter of minutes anyone is a musician on this.

OK this review sounds jaded. It does give you plenty of cool sounds at your fingertips and can easily fit in a backpack and be brought to the gig.

Korg is known for making quality, durable keys.

The keys are very tiny. I am a bass player and have fat, calloused fingers. It is easy to get tripped up on this keyboard.

I have scene these get dropped, stepped on and even a beer or two spilled on these. They are like the Timex watches of keyboards.

If it's strong enough for a rock club it will last anywhere!

A great non-keyboard player's keyboard! Need to thicken up your band's sound? This synth will do it.
