A stylish matte-black model of the KingKORG, Korg’s 61-key flagship analog modeling synthesizer for performance and studio, is now available in a limited edition with the KingKORG Black. Only 150 of these synthesizers will be introduced within the United States in this sleek new black model designed for live performances.

The KingKORG faithfully reproduces the ways in which the oscillator and filter of an analog synthesizer can change, giving users the freedom to shape their sound with a diverse range of synth sounds. Powerful oscillators that are both understandable to the beginner and satisfying for the expert and three master effect sections (each with six effect types) add the finishing touch to the users sound.

The highly anticipated KingKORG Black will be available for purchase on Tuesday, November 1 for $999.99. For more information on this limited edition synthesizer, visit www.Korg.com.
