  Of course, More on Tomita, Morton Subotnick, Cluster......Etc.  Let's 
face it, Keyboard is sponsored by big business, and I'm sure all this new 
interest in old gear and building your own gear bug's them. There were 
many Jazz Artists keyboard Didn't deal with probably because people like 
Chick represented the market more than anything. Plus, old contemporary 
keyboard issues don't have many pictures. To find any pictures of the 
Roland system 100 that weren't  the size of a stamp, I had to look to an 
old issue of Clavier.
