    Please shed some on my newbie addiction. I've done quite a bit of research but it's confusing me a little. It looks like a hack vib mod to me, looking at the swell pedal rheostat.

      Thanks enor,
      The manual says, "with vibrato AND vibrato chorus" which I don't know why you'd need vc when it already has the chorus tg. Confusing

        The chorus generator adds notes that are out of tune (slightly) with the main generator. This was the first chorus right after the previous tremulant effect on the first models. Vibrato came along later which is an effect added after the tone generator. It was called “after vibrato”. Vibrato chorus is just vibrato mixed with straight signal. Once the vibrato system came out, the original chorus generator was discontinued. Organs with the chorus generator that had the newer vibrato system added are somewhat rare.

        Vibrato chorus sounds nothing like the original chorus. It just happens to come with vibrato.
