Kenji Bolden Trio
Numa Compact 2
As a musician that puts on weekly programs in my local area, I knew I needed an instrument that was portable and of the best quality. I saw videos of Numa Compact 2 and knew instantly it was what I was looking for. The self-contained speakers are perfect for small intimate performances and the built-in effects are top notch. Don't be fooled, this keyboard is not limited by any means and handles well on the stage or coming through an amplifier. My favorite sounds are the Rhodes and Clavinets!
