  • Which Allen are we looking at here. Tube? Tranny? / and a T-12B it appears, local2me

    It appears the organ w/o the 2 cut outs for the spkrs is an Allen T-12B...nothing special with it's single transistor rank and circuit voice shaping, as opposed to more ranks of independent oscillators. So what model is the one on the left? That's the one I am curious about. Both are free.Click image for larger version

    So what's that expression- ' nothing like a good Allen to sound special, and nothing like a bad Allen to sound awful!'. I believe the T-12B is the latter variety.

    I believe the organ on the left is a T-15A. Anything bigger than one generator (the T15 has a reed/string/diapason "trunk" on its flute generator) would need external speakers, except for specialty models like the Carousels, the T-44, and the analog Positiv. The two speaker cutouts and preset pistons give it away.
