Transistor electronic organ in 1971
Output jack for connection over an external leslie
Many commanders switches the different sounds, the attacks of notes (can be isolated), the accuracy, the reverb and vibrato
2 manuals plus pedal
Removable and relatively portable (Count the weight of a large Rhodes)
Takes a bit of grip but quickly reveals itself quite simple to use.
Given the number of parameters, it is sometimes difficult to find a sound.
Sounds wonderful, full and rich.
He has no grain size and tone wheel organs from the same period but offset by a greater versatility.
Very versatile, it can sound like an analog synth (lead, strings ,...) with minimal external effects (echo chamber, phaser).
The internal spring reverb and vibrato are splendid.
Mine spits a little with each attack when the connectors are touching but it is understandable given his age and I find it rather charming.
A little gem designed by the creator of the brand Roland time or he worked at Hammond (mine is also signed Hammond Ace Tone but it is the same as in the photo). He accompanied me for many years and I regularly find new uses. I love it and does not part with it.
