The MS-20 played a vital role KORG’s history as a synthesizer brand. Even after sales of the original, released in the late 70’s, came to an end, KORG has carried on the MS-20 tradition in a mini-sized reissue, a software synthesizer plugin, and even a kit version. These were driven by Korg's pride in their synthesizer heritage, their understanding of its historical significance, their responsibility to faithfully carry on the analog circuit technology that they've developed over the years, and their desire to pass on its generation-spanning sound to the future.

And now, Korg has resumed production of a completely assembled full-size MS-20, which had in 2014 been produced only in very small numbers as a kit. But in addition to faithfully recreating the sound, feel, and analog circuitry, this full-size reissue will consist of limited numbers of four different powder-coated color variations: khaki (KHAKI), white (WHITE), metallic blue (MBLUE), and black (BLACK).

This MS-20 FS is the genuine MS-20 made by KORG, faithful to the original in every way. Today, 40 years after first appearing in 1978, musicians hungry for this absolutely timeless sound can hear the genuine analog power of the MS-20."

  1. Keytar? Does anyone proofread anymore?

  2. You know what? I would do it, just for the comedy value of lurching around on stage with an MS-20 on a strap, with a mop handle duck taped to it.

    1. When I first heard Edgar Winter played an ARP 2600 keytar I literally thought they meant whole thing.

    2. That gives me visions of Frankenstein doing that with lightning bolts tearing the sky, and Dracula, the Wolfman, and the Mummy on guitar, bass, and drums.
