I hope Phil Leader will not object to my posting this news from his facebook page.
To those who are not aware of Phil Leader, he was the Technic's UK demonstrator for their musical instrument division but also worked in Japan on the development of the fantastic range of keyboards.He is in Japan at this time and has posted the sad news that his ex boss Mr Kenji Matsumoto has passed away at the age of 69yrs. He was in at the beginning of EMID.(Electronic Musical Instrument Division)starting with the National brand in the 1960's through to the fabulous range of Technic's organs,digital pianos and KN keyboards we all love.
Regards JOHN. KN player and ex UK Technic's dealer.
