Kurzweil Donates K250 Keyboard to NAMM’s Museum of Making Music
Chang North America president Vincent Choi recently presented the iconic Kurzweil K250 keyboard to Carolyn Grant, executive director of NAMM’s Museum of Making Music.
The K250 regarded by many as the first true electronic musical instrument, which produced sounds derived from “sampling” burned onto integrated circuits known as Read Only Memory, or ROM. The model is considered first electronic instrument to faithfully reproduce the sounds of an acoustic grand piano.
“We are pleased to have such a historic instrument on display, alongside many of the other groundbreaking instruments at the Museum’s newest Electronic Music Exhibit, “ commented Dan Yuter, Kurzweil national sales & marketing manager for Young Chang.
