NAMM 2020: Korg MS-20 Full-Size Synth Reborn In 4 Limited-Edition Colors
Rounik Sethi on Mon, January 13th 0 comments
40 years on from the original MS-20, Korg have kept their remakes faithful in every way. Though now there are four colors to choose from for a limited time only.

Korg describe the limited-edition MS-20 synths as "a new twist on the long-awaited full-size unit". 

Here's what Korg tells us about the new MS-20 re-issues:

"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 our pride in our synthesizer heritage, our understanding of its historical significance, our responsibility to faithfully carry on the analog circuit technology that we've developed over the years, and our desire to pass on its generation-spanning sound to the future.

 

"And now, we have 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."
