Erica Synths Instrument Is Back In Black

Erica Synths tells us that they are stopping the manufacturing of the jet fighter cockpit blue PERKONS HD-01 and introducing an all-new sleek black finish. Here's more details from the company...

Due to a few considerations (including popular demand) we have decided on releasing a new edition of the PERKONS HD-01 now in an all-new sleek black finish!

We are pleased to see the enjoyment the PERKONS has brought to users worldwide over the past two years despite the numerous production setbacks we have encountered along the way. From studio setups to clubs it is heartwarming to see our thunderous creation inspiring electronic musicians to express themselves in new ways and most importantly – to have fun while doing so.

To celebrate its success we have decided to transform the beast by giving it a new demeanour – a timelessly black finish to match our other instruments and to visually complement the dark aesthetic that has become synonymous with Erica Synths modules and desktop instruments all over the world. The original edition in jet fighter cockpit blue will remain a unique piece of music instrument history and hopefully cherished by the owners of these now discontinued units
