UTILIZATION

Disarmingly simple as all these old instruments, there is little sound really different but those can be varied it a dozen manner, swithes by very accessible.
The dual keyboard is quite useful even if the keyboard from the bottom has little possibility of his. The transition from one to another or play both sides was very easy.

The only atrocious in this organ is the weight in the 50-60 kg while it is an organ bag. At that time it was like that the portable equipment.
on the other hand of this material was very strong, easy to open and repair (spring contacts were able to jump into the carriage, we passed under it as under a car and they delivered the springs in place). The keyboards were also very sturdy.

SOUNDS

the sounds are limited to the type Italian organ, flute sounds in various registers, some tremolo speed varies, some alteration of his flute to the pompous name, we quickly made the rounds.
To accompany the rock-pop ca passes very well.

Obviously we must measure the organ from her era.

OVERALL OPINION

I used it for 6 years or so, in the 80s. That was my main keyboard (I also had a Korg MS20 and a Korg PE2000). That difficult to get the same sounds with synths present and no Preset is like him.

Note however that this same model was used by Procal Harum and Led Zeppelin (occasionally).
