    This is the "console" version of their tone wheel organ: 2 manuals, one set of drawbars for each, a few presets and an octave of bass pedals. What makes this one interesting is the attached rhythm machine. Think Roland Rhythm Ace, but comes with its own amplification, speaker AND an attached organ. It sounds good, all the parts work, and you can play the (analog) drum machine with buttons beside the lower manual or with the lower manual keyboard.

    There are two broken keys to replace (just the plastic parts, easy and cheap) and it needs lubricated (the tone wheel is noisy, a common problem with older organs, you oil it, run it for a while and repeat).

    I usually break down organs for their high quality tubes and a decent speaker, use the cab for firewood... But I really hate to do this because of the rarity: only 500 built with the drum machine.

    Oh, and researching it, this IS a Roland Rhythm Ace built for Hammond!
