Most people don’t realize that, except for the holidays, Santa has a lot of time on his hands. Once he learned how to play keyboard in all that spare time, he’s hoped to become a multi-keyboardist – sort of a jolly, red-suited Keith Emerson. But then he discovered that all those sounds were actually available using the amazingly affordable, portable digital keyboards from Yamaha and Casio (which made him even more jolly, since he saved a whole lot of money using these instruments). Here at Sweetwater, we put in a good word for you, so whether you’ve been naughty or nice, Santa will still bring you one of these electronic marvels:
