The Sonogenic SHS-500 is a keytar designed to allow anyone to experience the fun of musical performance immediately. With a JAM function that automatically matches the notes played to the chord progressions of songs played on connected smart devices, the SHS-500 lets even beginners perform their own compositions. Weighing just 1.5 kg, these instruments are perfect for a range of performance styles, and feature a simple design equipped with a range of effects such as filters and reverb, and controls that allow players to use techniques such as choking and vibrato.
