Used Starr Labs ZTAR Mini-ZS. Tested and in great working condition. Includes padded gig bag, manual, and power adapter.

From Starr Labs:

The Mini-Z is only 24” long and offers a comfortable playing position for two-handed tapping, whether sitting or standing. Rather than just an ordinary tapping instrument, this might be considered the first truly optimized keyboard for guitarists. The Ztar “Poly” mode allows playing more than one-note-per-string which allows piano-style cluster voicings, impossible guitar chords, and the freedom of two-hands tapping without being limited to just six notes. Play 100 notes or more together, it you can reach them!
By putting the fingerboard directly in front of the player’s body, both hands have perfect access to the neck without stretching or reaching at an awkward angle. It’s most apparent when sitting back in an easy chair, a normally difficult position for guitar-playing, especially two-hand tapping. Even a Stick is a little cumbersome in this position and usually requires a belt-hook. This Mini-Z is for tapping only however the full list of Options is available for adding on.

Adding StringTriggers creates the Mini-ZS model or Drum/Expression Pads with Rubber Trigger Bars for the Mini-ZX model. These can be combined to create the Mini-ZXS!

Other Available Options:

• Programmable Whammy Bar
• Full-length Neck pressure-sensing strip
• Ribbon controller
• Wireless MIDI Transceiver
• LED fingerboard
• 6-Pad programmable Trigger Cap Assembly for Clips, FX, etc.
• 6- Programmable knobs
