Eh. Increasingly common these days. Kind of like how Yamaha owns Ampeg and Line 6.
Covid has put a lot of stress on companies and I think we’ll see a lot of this all around.
Korg is also doing a lot of partnership/acquisition stuff already. They are the distributor and representative for a large number of companies here in Japan, including Vox, PRS, Ernie Ball, Arturia, Moog, Blackstar, Aguilar, and Warwick.
It’ll be interesting to see what they do with the product line. It could use some updating if they want to stay competitive.
