Korg SB-100 Synthe-Bass

Korg Synthe-Bass Image

Korg's Synthe-Bass (model SB-100) is a small 2-octave monophonic bass synth that had a very fat sound. It has one oscillator, an AD Envelope and a low-pass filter. No LFO, no arpeggiators or sequencers and certainly no memory. Small and portable, it came in a brief-case design. Unlike many portable synths of the time, it featured full size keys.

This wonderful synth was used for quite a few songs on various albums of 12 Drummers Drumming and the debut album of Dead Guitars "Airplanes". Kurt Schmidt of both bands is the proud owner.....lucky chap he is ; )

This is the synth seen on the recent photos of Röyksopp. Some of the bass lines on "The Understanding" is made with the SB-100.

This synthesizer was also used on one rare video by Benjamin Orr the bassist from the cars on the Song Think It Over from the Shake It Up!! Album, live you see him playing it inplace of his usual Steinberger Bass, while singing the song as well.
