Closest StoreToronto - Bloor Street, Ontario
Broke within 6 months of purchase. The cable is pretty flimsy and a strange build (I can't even remove the cable to see if that's the culprit). A bit of a waste of money.

Well made. built on a slab of extruded aluminium. Keys have a nice touch. I don't think you could find another small portable USB midi better than this anywhere, especially at this price.

Would I use it on stage? No. But is it an excellent keyboard for composing in the go? Definitely. Much better build quality than the similar small Akai or M-Audio keyboards I've owned which have all broken.
