Korg tells us that to celebrate their 50th anniversary they will be having special anniversary promotion/contests throughout the year. Meanwhile, here's a statement from them...
Dear fellow musicians,
This year, Korg celebrates its 50th anniversary! Since it was founded in 1963, Korg's goal has been to create new experiences in music and performance. That was what drove the creation of Japan's first disc-based rhythm machine, the Doncamatic, and then led to the development of Japan's first synthesizer, the world's first needle-type tuner, followed by numerous unique instruments that have brought the enjoyment of musical performance to many people all around the world.
Korg is resolved to continually create innovative and uncompromising instruments of high quality that inspire professional musicians, yet are still approachable enough for anyone to play.
The musical instruments Korg will deliver are reflections of the ideas and values of the many artists and users who love Korg products - now and into the future.
We look forward to the next 50 years and what the future will bring.
