About This Listing

Very hard to find Technics K300 MIDI PCM keyboard. Made in Japan. 
This is the same model keyboard Leonard Cohen used on the "I'm your man" album. If you listen to "First We Take manhattan" you can hear the synth being utilised very well. 

I also just read that he used the keyboard (well the 350 model), live until at least September 2013 at the O2 Arena In London  as I found a fan writing on a forum that wanted to know what keyboard he played. 

The 350 model is the same but has a cartridge  slot to store sounds but this model doesn't the core sounds and design in the same.  

This keyboard has the same sound  chip as the K400 and K450.

Fully working with UK power lead. 
Appears to have a  voltage section switch at the back set to UK. 240V
Very well made and  heavy piece of kit with a metal chassis so this is not a  plastic light weight affair. 

I have the original full instructions (English Spanish, german, French, Italian and Netherlands. 

Simple control panel with 8  great  quality sounds that have a real synth  feel a to them with the sustain level ups. Don't be  fooled by the basic Youtube clip I think this synth has real potencial and the MIDI In/out opens up  a lot of doors.  

Some of the sounds have a dream pop shoegaze  fuzz to them and I think this would sound great for alternative music, I'm thinking of using this with a delay and reverb  pedal to  get that spacey   

Great for band practice as  even the built in speakers are loud at a combined 10Watts. 

49 key keyboard, has a MIDI section and you can also record and use as a sequencer, multi-track or as a MIDI controller keyboard. 

A nice feature is the display tells you what chords you are playing and the built in  rhythm has a few nice solid patterns that are not so cheesy.

Has a vintage  feel being from the 80s and is high quality, these were around £500 in the 80s ($$$$ in todays money) and were used by serious musicians to make  great  music.   

Technics: The Science of Sound

The peal of brass. The whisper of the strings. The rhythm of percussion.

These PCM sounds, and more, are all at your fingertips. Because they're all stored in the memory of the new Technics SX-K300 portable keyboard with MIDI capability.

And to mix everything together, the SK-K300 features a 4-channel play sequencer that's like a multi-track recorder. With it you can play and record presets, bass lines and separate left and right voices on four tracks. Then play back one track or any combination of tracks simultaneously with your live performance.

And with the MIDI terminals you can interface with up to 16 other MIDI keyboards, an external sequencer or even a computer. Which means the SX-K300 can handle the demands of today's music. And tomorrow's.

The Technics SX-K300 keyboard. It can take your music as far as your imagination will go. Maybe even further.
