  1. so much better in black. never understood why it was in blue. I bought the limited edition myself in black with the beautiful wooden panels on the side. I really love this device, most intuitive drum machine I know.

    1. The blue paint job was apparently inspired by fighter jet controls and military equipment. Google Mig-21 to see it in the wild.

  2. Black is always going to look good, but Perkons in blue looks pretty sharp.
    Plus the original version always sounds way better.
