Korg Reissues a Different Kind of Classic with the RK-100S 2 Keytar | NAMM 2020

RK-100S 2

So far this NAMM season, Korg has gone over-and-above expectations for its reissue game. The company is reproducing the ARP 2600 to original specs in exacting detail and offering full-sized MS-20s in limited-edition powder-coated finishes. (And it has also updated its '90s wave-sequencing technology in the new Wavestate synth.)

Now, they're reissuing a different kind of classic with a second version of their RK-100S Keytar.

Less a true reissue than an updated version of a reissue (we'll explain), the new RK-100S 2 is a 37-key, eight-voice, two-oscillator polyphonic synth with wide capabilities for sound-tweaking thanks to onboard effects and the ability to link up to Korg software. It can also be powered by batteries so you can be fully unencumbered onstage.

The RK-100S 2 is an updated version of 2014's RK-100S, which was itself a reissue of the original RK-100 Keytar from the 1980s. Need a refresher on your keytar history? We've got you covered.

The new model will be available in red or black figured wood finishes, though availability is yet to be determined. Click the "Follow" button above to add it to your Reverb Feed and be notified as soon as they're available for puchase on Reverb. Or, treat yourself to a vintage RK-100.
