The Sonogenic SHS-500 keytar is designed in a way that playing it is fun right away. The JAM function automatically matches the notes to the chord progression of songs played on connected smart devices. This allows even beginners to perform their own compositions. Since the instrument weighs only 1.5 kg, it is also suitable for performances that involve dance. Effects such as filters and reverb as well as control elements that allow players to use techniques like choking and vibrato are integrated into the simple construction of the housing.

Statement by the Jury

The Sonogenic SHS-500’s innovative combination of keyboard and guitar is a good example of how form and function can complement each other.
