I've been playing Wersi
instruments since 1990 when we bought a Beta, this was a fantastic
instrument and really helped me learn the technical side of instruments. I
changed to the Performer in 1998 because I had started performing a few
concerts and the sounds on the Beta had become outdated. I have always
preferred the sounds of the European organs over the Japanese instruments
and I needed a portable instrument so I can carry it myself. At the time
this limited me to the Bohm and Wersi instruments and having been used to
the Wersi it was an obvious choice to persue this option. At the time the
Phon-x/Performer/Pegasus range had been out around 3 years, we were at the
Blackpool AOE festival and spoke to the Wersi team at the time and tried out
a few instruments. I decided the Performer would be perfect, it has the
added bonus of having rubberised sides so it will bounce if it's dropped....
I don't think this will do the insides much good so haven't actually tried
