Behold My Keytar, and Weep

I am now the proud owner of a "keytar" - the Yamaha SHS-10, from the mid-80's. (That's a cartoon-drawing of it in the pic. Shannon had one many many years ago too.) Mostly for use at home with my computer/composing/recording setup, but don't be too shocked if it comes along for some random appearances from time to time. Plucked it off of ebay for probably too much $$, but was probably paying for a bit of "kitsch value" too. Kitsch, is of course, in the eye of the beholder...

I'm pleased to learn that HSR is aware of the keytar culture (so to speak) too. Did you know there is a wikipedia site just for HSR stuff? That's where the picture is from, and where the title-link takes you. is also a useful site.

Keytars are awesome, don't let anyone tell you otherwise.
