    Any keytars you guys can recomend that will have pitch bend, and lots of cool synths? Also, whats it like to plug a keyboard/keytar through distortion pedals? Thanks

    The real question is, is it possible to play a keytar without having a mullet?

    With all of those awesome musicians, how could you not play a keytar?
     
  7. Anybody who has witnessed a 2 Skinnee J's show will agree that keytars can rock your damn face off.

  15. Justin Hawkins was the Star in a reasonably priced car on Top Gear this week. He was actually a really good driver. Funny seeing him here too in the same week.

    Search for Pseudo Echo and see what type their keytarist used. He definitely used pitch bend. Yep...Pseudo Echo. If anyone has seen the 'funky town' video, you'll notice the drummer has THREE kick drums. How many legs does he have? Hmmmm.

    And through a distortion pedal....that's be just like running a guitar or bass through a synth pedal then a distortion pedal, which can sound pretty cool. Like an Ibanez SB7 through a Big Muff. Awesome.
