  • Lovin' the Lucina

    As reviewed by PETER NELSON on 7/9/2012

    I've always wanted a "keytar" or "shoulder synth." I used my friend's old Casio keytar a few years ago for a talent show and really had fun. This past spring I had the pleasure of meeting and working with Mark Wood (electric violinist) as part of my daughters' school's Electrify Your Strings program. Mark plays a 7 string Viper that he designed and sells. He has a number of the students STAND UP and play either their instrument or one of his electrics. As a part-time piano teacher, I saw the difference when the kids are standing. Hey - we all harbor those desires to be the "front of stage" electric guitarist, right? So putting two and two together ..... I also realized that this makes a really nice little controller for my digital recording. And the sounds are really, really good! The "Jazz Scat" and the Synth 1 leads are awesome, some of the overdriven organs are really good, and the strings are good too. I'm really happy and looking forward to playing this keyboard and teaching with it for many years.

  • Lucina AX - 09

    As reviewed by RDAllen on 8/9/2010

    I bought the instrument to replicate the organ tracks in much classic rock. Not normally a keyboardist, but I am blown away by the quality and arrangement of the instrument. Extremely versatile. Invaluable in our sound. Now that I've experienced it I wouldn't wanted to be without it.

  • Wicked Lil' Keyboard

    As reviewed by Robbert Bricker on 9/27/2011

    Back in the 80's I had a red, Yamaha keytar... It was somewhere between a "real" keyboard and a toy. My expectations for the Lucina Ax-09 was not much more... Maybe a little more of an upgrade on the sounds- and the price. However, to my surprise, this is one wicked lil' keyboard- Its not toy! Seeing it has only been a week since I have had this lil' gem in my possession, I haven't the chance to really explore it in depth, but I can say the sound quality and it's abilities are grand. All in all, for the price and its compact size, this keyboard rocks!
