Is Behringer about to steal Roland’s thunder with this SH-101 clone?

Within hours of Roland celebrating 808 day with the release of  Boutique editions of the revered TR-808 and SH-101, Behringer shared a (perhaps not-so) cryptic post on Facebook of a woman holding what looks like an SH-101.

However, on closer inspection you’ll notice it’s actually neither an SH-101 or made by Roland. It is, in fact an MS-101 with a Behringer badge on it.

Who knows whether the Music Group brand is trolling the Japanese firm, or actually dropping a highly unsubtle hint about a new product it has been working since announcing its intention to create 20 new instrument products. Needless to say, internet tongues are wagging, and we await further developments with interest...
