Fun in its own way
This keyboard is of course, a low end keyboard not to mention it is from the late '80's. It was introduced into the world as being the 'second cheapest sampler' only beat by the earlier model, the SK-1. Most musicians saw it as a toy, initially, but after a number of artists used it in their own professional compositions, it was raised up from that status. Now, these keyboards are a fun addition to any setup due to the low-fi 8bit sound that is often sought after. Also includes a handy recording function for layering!
TL;DR Its old and has low sound quality, but this instrument is a hella good time

beautiful, cheap, moddable to all ends.
The keyboard was a beauty when I first got it, though it especially shines (in an amazingly lofi way) after being modded and circuit bent a bit. Playing with the pitch of the percussion, modifying recorded samples in weird ways and such. Definitely more than just the toy keyboard my parents thought it was when they were cleaning out the garage and were about to throw it out.
