"This time I'm going DEEP into the Univox Mini-Korg K-2 (a.k.a. Mini-Korg 700s), including the history, the story behind the family member who passed it down to me, a demonstration of the synth, the extensive restoration effort, and finally a rad 80's song with my friend and amazing guitarist, Justin Piper.

I'd like to thank family and friends that helped with this whole project, including the Lunn Family, Kadrolsha Ona Carole, Mary Champagne, Kristin Parker, Craig Parker, and Justin Piper.
