I had one of these while I was playing with three different local 80's cover bands. I had been looking for a keytar for ages, but for the longest time the best choice was the older AX-7. I passed on that one for two reasons: no built in sounds, and only 45 keys. You see, I didn't want a toy that I could only play one-handed. You really need at least 49 full-size piano keys to stretch out and let loose. I also wanted to be tethered to as few things as possible, and the AX-Synth's built-in sound engine and battery power allowed me to roam free with just a 1/4 cable trailing behind. I got this puppy as soon as it first became available. Once I got my hands on it, I no longer had to bring a keyboard, stand and power adapter to practice and gigs... I just threw the AX-Synth in its soft-case, grabbed an amp, and was on my way. Load-up and set-up became trivial. And man, was it fun to play. This one band I was in, Big Hair Affair... we put on the wigs, crazy makeup and heavy metal clothes, and were free to jump around on stage like rocking 80's maniacs. Once I got a wireless, I was free to move about the stage... and thanks to the AX-Synth, I always had the sounds and keys I needed. I could play leads, chords, bass lines, anything I wanted... and I was never left wanting for patches! This baby has 'em all... 80's JUMP synth, Final Countdown leads, Don't Stop Believing pianos, Rock You Like A Hurricane guitars, Unskinny Bop basses, and even a jazz scat singing patch that put everybody in hysterics! 49 keys is plenty for playing rock and popular hits. If there was an occasion where looking like a member of DEVO wasn't appropriate, I'd just prop this bad boy up on a stand and it became a normal keyboard and nobody was the wiser.Read more ›

I love my AX-synth I brought it about a month ago and it came with a stand as a bonus. This is such a great instrument. I was almost in tears when I got it because I waited so long for something like this. It has the perfect feeling of a guitar with the button locations but it's synth. I was thinking of purchasing the older model from roland but all previous models looked like a keyboard with a strap on it.

This baby is what it is a real shoulder synth. The guitar sounds are amazing and there is a lot of them to choose from. I'm still learning how to edit the sounds because it makes octaving,pitch bending, and filtering the sounds pretty simple and every tiny thing you do really changes the sound you get.

Another good thing about it is that it has a strap and it's light weight. I hurt my back some time ago in a car accident so putting weight on it leaves me stiff and causes an irritating pain after a while. I was afraid that would get in the way of me enjoying the synth but thankfully it feels very comfortable. I'm grateful for that.

I know this type of instrument probably isn't for everyone but if you're a keyboardist trust me you will love it!

For years I have wanted a keytar. I felt as though it would be the perfect medium between the piano and guitar. I play in a church praise band so I toyed with the idea for months because I knew it could be a valuable asset to our overall sound.

I first played around with the Roland Ax-Synth at a local Best Buy (which at the time had a music store inside it). I fell in love. It's so easy to use and transitioning between sounds is easy. The manual is easy to navigate and understand. I'm a huge fan of the whammy bar on the neck. It makes "rocking out" that much more fun.
