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:
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.
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
