7 000.00 street price

The only and unique mega synthesizer of the 1990s priced at $20,000, which back then was the equivalent of $30,000 today. Technically it is filled with all possible K2500XS extensions encased within a metallic champagne housing and sides of noble wood.

There were only a few K2500 AES units released and some of them were used by Pink Floyd. Today the might appear on sale priced at $6000-8000 and are distributed among collectors. Of course, today it is rather a work of art, but there’s no doubt that K2000 - K2500 - K2600 series still cope with music production quite well. In fact, these are one of those immortal synthesizers which once served as trendsetters, and in skilled hands they can make their magic even today.

Country of origin / production: South Korea
