You could have a look for Fatar Studio49 MIDI keyboards.
Work quite well but send midi only on channel 1.

You can have a look at them on my webpage.

Betreff: [sdiy] Keyboards good for scrap / repurposing?

Hey list,

as I saw that Doepfer does not sell the shorter ( < 49 keys ) fatar
keybeds anymore,
and also, for some builds, I don't require a new keyboard, I was wondering:

Are there some known models of keyboards (MIDI or with sound engine, no
matter) which would make sense to look for in "broken" condition to get
them cheap, to use the keys for DIY synths? I.e., they should lend
themselves well to ripping out the keybed/keys without damaging the
needed parts. I guess you'd always have to build new switches PCBs, as
such keyboards would have everything (I dont' need) on one PCB, right?
(I never opened such a thing)
I am interested in both, quality, and "usable enough to have some fun"
types for different purposes ;-) And it's not restricted to short
keybords generally, just right now in particular I'm after a cheap
37..43 key one.
