  • Yamaha Electone E10AR

    I've placed a bid on a Yamaha Electone E10AR. From what I can find on the internet, this model was first manufactured in 1974 and has "26 voices" which I assume mean equivalent to 26 speaking stops. It has only one problem - apparently one of the stops on the upper manual doesn't work properly, but the lister reckons any competant Yamaha technician cam fix it (I have some doubts).

    Does anyone have further information? Is this model of organ an okay practice instrument? A complete stop list would be nice!

    hartleymartin,

    According the the Owner's Manual (available on-line here), the stop list is as follows:
    • Upper: Flutes 16', 8', 5 1/3', 4', 2 2/3', 2'; Trombone 16', Bassoon 16', Clarinet 8', Brass 8', Oboe 8', Kinura 8', Strings 8', 4', 2 2/3'.
    • Lower: Flutes 8', 4', 2 2/3', 2', Diapason 8', Horn 8', Cello 8', Cello 4'.
    • Pedal: Bass 16', Bass 8', Tuba 16', Bass Guitar.


    There are also the following presets for the Upper Manual: Chimes, Accordion, Hawaiian Guitar, Piano, Harpsichord, Vibraphone. Additionally, there are three factory-set pistons.

    I hope this helps.

      Thanks for that information. I find the inclusing of a 5-1/3' mutation stop interesting I understand this to be an octave lower than the 2-2/3' stop. I also have no idea what the Kinura sound is like, but apparently it is more of a theatre organ stop.

      I obtained a Yamaha Electone E10AR off ebay for an extremely good price. The pedalboard is a bit limited being only 25, flat radiating, but it is betteer than 13 stubby pedals and will do for most of my organ work (mostly hymns).
