A "tablehooter" is a cheap sounding electronic keyboard for the beginner market. Often considered toy keyboards. From the German "tischhupe" which roughly describes a tabletop car horn array.

Some otherwise completely useless tablehooters are sought after by music producers for their unique tonal attributes (or more accurately, perhaps, for their obscurity value).
There's no way in hell I'm going to trade my Hohner Clavinet classic for that little Casio tablehooter you got for your fifth birthday, friend.
