I've always wanted a combo organ but could never really afford one. They seem to go for a lot. BUT today I spotted this on eBay for BIN £90. It's less than 20mins away from me and looks bloomin awesome, so I snapped it up:



Dunno how good it sounds, it isn't not a well known brand or anything. But I'm sure I can put it through a few pedals and get something out of it.
It also has a built in rhythm section which on this demo sounds prettttttty pretty good. I love that beat at the start haha:

Pretty excited. Probably gonna put it in my studio for lunchtime jams. It has a built in speaker and headphone output as well which is useful.

Yeah, should be fun. Hopefully (if the seller reads my final message in time) I've arranged to pick it up tomorrow morning so expect a demo soon!

I read that as "an inbuilt mayhem section". Looking forward to demos!

That looks ace. Looking forward to the demo. Love a bit of old school organ.

I had a whippany mel-o-sonic at one point. I love combo organs. They look rad and usually have at least one usable setting for the kind of music my band plays. Unfortunately, the experiences I have had with them is that they work great for a little while and then they never stay in tune (or just stop working all together). Would love to own a fully functional Elka Panther or a Farfisa but they are way too expensive and almost always half broken. I settled for a Roland VK-1 and am totally happy with it.

Cool find! I would definitely buy another old organ if I come across a cheap one.

One of my girlfriend and mine's hobbies is pickling things in cider: apricots, beef, and last week I put my organ in cider.

On the one I used to have you got some really nice beats if you pressed two of the rhythm buttons at the same time. Wish I still had it, found it on the street just up from my old flat. After a bit of a clean it worked really well, but it was too big to move when I moved to a forth floor tenement which was a bit smaller. Think I gave it away? Can't remember? Been trying to get another one ever since
