It is steep indeed, considering you can get the new - fully assembled - Moog Sub 37 for about that.

Indeed, or a new - fully assembled - MS-20 mini for $599. Curious who they think would buy this?

Limited Edition to what? 1000 or 10,000? Or just till the collectors have enough?

Could be a very juicy modding project. Hang it on the wall like the learning edition. I don't even want the case or Keys.

you can buy an original ms20 for less so i would say this is for the collector. its pretty cool that they're going to offer this though. having both early and later filters is :yay:

Yes! Now it would be easier to masterbate while playing a ms20 mini

800 would be a fair price…200 more for the bigger size… They save a part of the building costs…

Bigger, extra filter, better parts. I don't think the price is bad

maybe this is some sort of test to see if Korg can sell anything analog.

wish they would do an ms-50

This is too weird. I've been excited to see Korg answering the recent interest/demand for analog instruments. But WTF is this?

So, I'm going to spend more than twice the price of a mini for the privilege of assembling my own synth? Oooo, and I get a choice of filters, which can be selected by going back into the damn thing to flip a switch? And 1/4" jacks? That has to be worth the bloated price right there!

Ok, I forgot. It's the original size. That's the biggest selling point of all. I've been looking for a way to fill up all the empty space I have in my little spare bedroom/studio.

Give me an SQ-10 mini at an MS-20 mini price, and I'll be back.

Perhaps it's a limited response to all the bitching about 1/8" jacks that ensued when the Mini was announced.
If it's limited to 1,000, then that price isn't too crazy considering how much more expensive the manufacturing would be for a run that small.

You're probably right, but I still don't get the limited run. Seems Korg should be focusing more on full production instruments that satisfy the much larger customer base. But, hey! I'm still happy to see them branching out the way they've been.

I completely agree. I really had my fingers tossed for an MS-50 Mini this year.
I'm not interested in picking up one of these but I still think it's really cool that Korg is doing it.

I'm pretty they already have.

I think Korg should be totally commended for coming out of nowhere with this AND acknowledging the interesting differences between the two filters. They are going to sell out of these regardless, so bitching about the price is kind of pointless.

I'll stick with this if I want DIY MS-series stuff... but this is an interesting idea. I'm not sure it's all that interesting for us here at Muff's but it's an encouraging nod to SDIY if nothing else.
