Apparently the top section is exactly the same as some sort of SK, probably an SK5 in that it has four samples. I guess any SK5 mods would work on it.

Isn't this thing going to be pretty expensive after shipping and customs VAT is added on? Bringing one of these into the UK is going to cost around 250 in total!

Fortunately i had P&P for free...so it only gonna cost me that much..only thing i guess is hiding is the Royal mail tax for it around 14...like when you order midi kits from HL...hope not though...
I'll post a picture of the circuit boardand and a demo  as soon it is home...
I confirm...the top is like an SK5 !!no dogs!!
..the bottom keyboard is similar to a Casio MT 540.

Presumably plus 20% VAT added by customs to import it, which will come to nearly 35.

You have to pay the VAT, but when parcel force try and sting you for the 14 handling fee just tell them you didn't ask them to do anything on your behalf and you haven't entered into any contract with them to clear the package through customs for you. Its illegal for them to hold onto your package and demand a handling fee if you've paid the customs fee. Just phone up and say you want to pay the VAT but you won't be paying the handling fee at that time. As soon as you pay the  VAT they will release the package and then send you an invoice for the handling fee, which you can safely ignore as the charge is illegal, they know it and they can't afford for it to go to court.

Sorry, that went a bit off topic, but it really annoys me.
