microKORG celebrates two decades with Crystal edition launch

KORG is celebrating 20 years of the classic microKORG with the launch of the special edition microKORG Crystal. As the name suggests, this reincarnation of the classic microKORG features a ‘skeleton’ type semi-translucent chassis with matching knobs and controls, meaning you can see right into and through the instrument to the electronics and internals.

It features a stainless mirror-finish front panel which blends with the semi-translucent controls, plus aluminium side panels for a sturdy feel.

It even comes with a a dedicated carry bag — made from transparent vinyl of course — so your microKORG is shown off at all times.
