5 YEAR EXTENDED WARRANTY SCHEME

The product price includes a one year warranty and 30 day money back guarantee.

However, the Gear4music extended warranty scheme provides an enhanced service, and is designed to offer a higher level of protection than many 'free' warranties offered by some retailers and manufacturers.

The highlights of this enhanced warranty service are:

  • Warranty is extended to 5 years from the date of delivery.
  • Our Money Back guarantee is extended from 30 days to 90 days (terms apply after 30 days)
  • Collection and delivery costs are included for the first two years
  • Claim 50% cash back on the cost of the policy after 5 years if it has not been used!
  • Warranty is transferable if the item is re-sold
  • Loan or replacement equipment will be provided if the product isn't repaired within 30 days
  • If an item can not be repaired, a similar alternative product or cash discount (as defined in this policy) will be offered
  • The policy can be cancelled within 30 days, and at any time after that for a pro-rata discount

Please note that this extended warranty is currently only available on products sold within the EU or EEA, and is subject to the terms and conditions as detailed on the extended warranty certificate provided.

For customers in outlying areas of the country, the price of the Extended Warranty may be marginally higher, due to the potential for higher collection and redelivery transport costs.

This enhanced warranty is in addition to the standard Gear4music and manufacturer warranty policies, and the Gear4music terms and conditions of trade. No statement or condition of sale contained within these terms affects or restricts your statutory rights as defined under the Consumer Contracts Regulation 2014.

Analog Modelling Synthesizer

The Korg KingKorg is a powerful analog modelling synthesizer ideal for both stage and studio. The KingKorg features a 3-oscillator x 2-timbre design, letting you create rich and articulate sounds on the fly. The powerful XMT (Xpanded Modeling Technology) sound engine produces the broad range of tonal variations the KingKorg delivers. One of the most unique features of the KingKorg is the built-in Vocoder that makes it ideal for live performances. The built-in vocoder allows you to truly capture the sound of vintage synthesizer, providing the means to play like classic synth artists, transforming vocals into melodic sequences.

Versatile Sound Palette

In addition the Xpanded Modeling Technology sound engine, KingKorg provdes a wide range of preset algorithms, ranging from rhythmic leads to deep, gritty basses. The 200 presets are combinations of various types of oscillators, that allow you to dive in and tweak every parameter to achieve the sound you desire. A range of the most popular oscillator algorithms including: Sawtooth Wave, Square Wave, noise and more. There are also a range of PCM/DWGS algorithms for added versatility, allowing you to create virtually any sound you can dream of. The Vaccum tube driver adds rich overtones and powerful distortion, giving your tones added warmth, like the sound was ran through a Vacuum Tube amplifier. The modelling filters themselves reproduce the sound of classic instruments for a wide and varied range of sounds and instruments.

Intuitive Layout

The highly intuitive layout provides you with all your major controls in an ergonomic configuration, improving your workflow and letting you create sounds with ease. The oscillator section features its own dedicated display that displays your current selected algorithm. The dial located next to the display allows you to located your algorithm by name for added convenience. There are also dedicated dials for each of the three master effects, allowing you to utilise the different effects to hear how they affect the sound. The self-luminous organic EL display provides optimal visibility, even in low-light conditions.

Connectivity & Compatibility

The CV/GATE OUT jack allows you to control a Korg Monotribe or MS-20, allowing you to utilise other Korg synthesizers for expansive functionality. A dedicated cable for the Monotribe is included, which gives you the ability to use the Keyboard of the KingKorg to play the Monotribe. You can also manage programs on your computer by connecting your KingKorg to your computer via a USB cable. This allows you to use the Korg Librarian software which can be downloaded for free from the official Korg website.
