Korg M1


When I was with the group, Hy-Tyde, in the early and mid 90's, we performed with a lot of major acts, including Hank Jr.'s Legendary Bama Band several times. One night, the bands keyboardist, Billy Earhart (Amazing Rhythm Aces), brought Hank, Jr.'s Korg M1 to the gig. It was the newest and hottest synthesizer on the market. Billy E. was kind enough to let me play it during our performance that night and it was love at first SOUND! As quickly as I could get there, I drove to Far Out Music in Jeffersonville, Indiana and bought one for my very own. I still have it today, almost 15 years later. The Korg M1 was the world's first widely-known music workstation and is the best-selling digital keyboard of all time.
