« An enjoyable instrument with practical uses »

Published on 01/30/18 at 07:31
Value For Money : Excellent
Audience: Anyone
This is a fun keyboard to play, and it can be used for recording. The sounds can be combined to make some interesting tones, and the effects; AUTOWOW, REVERB, PERCUSSION, VIBRATO, REPEAT, and ECHO; can expand the fullness of the music. The sounds on the lower keyboard are different than that on the upper, but some very useful sounds. The Genie system rhythm section is a lot of fun, and can create hours of easy entertainment.

I use it mainly for home entertainment use and to familiarize myself with the C-C one-octave foot board with polyphonic bass notes. I have recorded some with it as well. Although it's one of the smaller Lowrey's during the era of its production, it is not easily portable. The volume foot pedal is a bit tough to use without disrupting the desired sound level. The half-note upward glide switch is right next to the volume pedal, making it a skill to use.

Although a bit dated, this organ has a lot of fun life left in it. It's perfectly functional for professional use, but definitely accessible for amateur performers.
