One more Asian Gear Porn pic...

by Chris Randall

I forgot one of the pics that Ethan sent me in the Asian Porn Fest last weekend. So here 'tis. It's the cover of a Roland brochure, and would be a pretty comprehensive studio, even by today's standards. (Just add 'puter!) Anyone know what the organ is? Click the image for the full-sized scan.

Speaking of, did you see the article saying that vintage musical instruments and photo developing equipment are OK to sell in Japan after all? This because the government doesn't want to be held liable for breaking equipment during PSE testing.

The organ looks like a VK-9, except the buttons on its lefthand side look slightly wrong compared to pictures I've seen. Maybe there were different configurations for that model?

That's what I was thinking. When I first saw it I thought VK-6, then I knew that was wrong. I'm gonna go ahead and say VK-9 as well. I thought this catalog might be earlier than 1979, but in thinking about it more, and assuming that is a VK-9, I'm gonna guess 1980 now.

probably a really early proto mackie mixer. (kidding, just seems so likely)
