# Circuit Bent Casio SK-1

Casio, Circuit Bent, SK-1 @ 29 August 2017

“This Bent Casio is the most AWESOME Glitched Sampler/Keyboard I have owned. It was modified by that Master of Bending, Sam Peck. Sam has custom-made several Bent Devices for me but this one was from his own personal collection. It has SO many possibilities I have only just begun to tap it’s potential. For instance rather than have a somewhat limited Patch Cord Bay with a half-dozen patch cords, this Bending Matrix has no less than 29 THREE-POSITION TOGGLE SWITCHES!!! Plus 3 more Three-Position Toggles on the end of the Keyboard. Making a total of 32 Toggles!! It also has a very cool Pitch-Bend knob. And get this, IT IS ALSO MIDI-CAPABLE!! YOU CAN PLUG ANY MIDI-COMPLIANT INSTRUMENT INTO IT AS A CONTROLLER!! I have used this function many times, plugging this SK-1 into my KORG Karma Workstation and using it as a sound source. I haven’t seen many Bent Boards that can do that.

Like all Bent instruments it can be temperamental, a quality I’ve actually come to love. You never know what weird sound it’s going to throw at you on it’s own. The random Zen Element . . .this is something I really value as an assembler of weird, spontaneous sound events.

This Bent Casio SK-1 is a hardy little board that has been handled with TLC. Never Toured. Lives in my smoke-free home studio. I’m only selling it because I’m raising money for my Solo Blues Tour. That, and I know I can have Sam build me something similar in the future. Don’t miss out on this unique instrument!

It comes with an Universal AC Adapter (110) and also runs on 5 AA Batteries.” Click here to visit listing on eBay
