This keyboard can be sweet when played gently or aggressive if played harder -- a behaviour known as "barking". This instrument will sound very familiar and was used on countless hit recordings, such as: "Dreamer" / Supertramp, "What'd I Say" / Ray Charles, "No Quarter"/Led Zeppelin, and many more...
