Vox Continental.Modle V301E.Celui possde I t was built in 1968.
English trs electric organ known to insiders all ears DOORS
(The instrument of the prdilection allucinant keyboardist Ray Manzarec).
Trs simple keyboard recognizable by its black and white keys reversed leather furniture and red and black.
49 keys (no aftertouch!), Vibrato activated by buttons left of the keyboard
and 6 drawbars, the start button and red light.
A mono output for connection to jack.Pas pedals.
Polyphony total on four octaves (DO2 DO6).
Portable use this instrument has only one small default: His weight (25 kilos prs little) but it comes in a box of Opel Corsa.
Now the most enjoyable: the sound is working with the drawbars (4) and pulls tonalit1 severe acute 1). A sound English, very English 60.70 '.
To give you an ide of possibilities and versatility, I'm going to Chernobyl dcrire
the sound made by each zip:
T1: low sound, trs Submitted with a feeling of fluiditon feels like a chorus effect)
T2: one octave suprieure.Son much straighter, more "fit-in" Rock trs what!
T3: An octave superieure.Son suberbe evokes the flute.Musicalit immense.Convient all music, especially Bach's fugues, or "the" Bach!
T4: an octave higher with the addition of a Dixime (still a major third octave above) relative volume hard but very nice (you can find the tone of the bagpipes!)
The Vox is adapted to all styles provided in the rgler consquence (sugaring zippers trangres sounding style) but as I said if you play the British or have seen the 'Celtic Soul (prdominence ranges septime dominant) you will not sweeten it, you will be redemendera same.
You should also know that the vibrato sounds great (if they have a good amp to reproduce the modulation trs fine) can rgler its modulation by lifting the hood red.
It can also rgler gnral the output level by operating the terminal jack with a screwdriver controller Voltage.On may grant, rgler the hardness of the keyboard, the rapid return of note but must above all maintain (Combs mtalliques rather fragile!)
I possde a V301E 10 years and I restored it over a trs an.Cet instument is beautiful (sky in the coating of furniture and keys). This is not like a Hammond but I remain convinced that this instrument has a place in the studio or composer in the set scne a keyboardist who will in essence DGIG despotically and mlodique.
Exprience I would do with the choice of a model in a poor state of course (New, not in my price range) because I know OPGs!! I think even as I go up and midifierais as expander. Wow, the foot!
