"WARAKU III is extremely rare and one of the most strange japanese electronic musical instruments
it was originally made for playing japanese traditinal music and made by SUZUKI (home of omnichord, NOBARA, tronichord..) but this is one of most strange & bizzare instrument SUZUKI ever made...

WARAKU III was last and top of the line product of WARAKU family and already discontinued products this one is very cool gold edition.

WARAKU III is basically a Koto Synth that original WARAKU and NOBARA into one and expand functions

I'm also selling original WARAKU and NOBARA in my eBay listing,so please check these Koto Synth too.

WARAKU III was very expensive and made very limited quantities those days it was made for the very small circle of the people who seriously studying japanese traditional music and never sold at ordinary musical instruments market so i'ts very hard to find even in Japan these days this is your first and last chance to get this bizzare exotic gem!

first of all it's very beautifull designed, built in cool futuristic gold plastic case in taisho koto shape with strange shape 37 key keyboard with 5 string bridge and 4 assignable drum pads it has 30 sounds(15 japanese traditional instruments like koto,shamisen,shakuhachi and 15 western instruments like piano,violin etc...) and in percussion mode you can play many exotic percussions by keyboard or assignable drum pad there are pitch bend lever and vibrate/sustaine switch,OUTPUT JACK,HEADPHONE OUT,PEDAL INPUT and MIDI INPUT so you can play WARAKU III from external MIDI controller (in this case you can select from 64 sounds) size is approx W72cm D22cm H9cm

you can play WARAKU III by keyboards or 5 string bridge (basically only use 4th string to play) and 4 assignable drum pads

this unique 5 string brdge can play by usual guitar pick hold one key of the keyboards and play 4th string by pick like guitar 5 string brdge is sumilate japanese traditinal instruments like taisho koto etc.. string is touch sensible with verocity and totally electronic device, it's not just simply electrical amplified like usual electric guitar, complete electronic. WARAKU III has MIDI OUT so you can play another MIDI synth by this unique 5 string brdge

4 drum pad is also touch sensitive and can easily playing by your fingers assign drum sounds to pad is very easy,just hold one key and hit the one pad in percussion mode drum sounds consists of many exotic japanese traditional percussions of course in drum mode you can play all of them on keybord

WARAKU III's sounds are very hi quality,exotic and strange!,very unique original sounds and playing by 5 string bridge with pick is very unique and funny experience"
