Korg Mini Pops 3

   (0 reviews)

The Mini Pops 3 from Korg released in 1967 is a 4 voice analog drum machine. It is a preset only unit but the user could combine patterns using knobs for some of the preset rhythms.

Its original slanted front panel was designed for sitting on top of an organ however many musicians embraced it that were not organ players. It also has two outputs for high and low impedance and a foot switch jack for starting and stopping rhythms.
