"I was lucky enough to get my hands on the Sledge just as it was released, and I was thrilled before I plugged it in. Great look, great usability, amazing sounds. Super functional as a controller and analog modeling synth. I'm having so much fun testing the Sledge's capabilities! Working it hard in my writing studio, and on the road with Hollywood Records artist Bridgit Mendler. This board is already the star of my keyboard rig."
