  • screechy, reedy, weedy - combies in spinet's clothing



    ok, so, some of you know full well by now that i like 'em screechy and transistorized.</P>


    but combo organs in alaska are slim to nil, or vastly overpriced.</P>


    being of relative inexperience in the spinet department, are there any spinets that pull a nice balls-out VOX or Farfisa impression? something with compact electronics that could be chopped would be neat to... the chick from the Okmoniks did it with her Hammond Sounder, and its really cool!</P>


    the hammond J-412 i found does it pretty well, but it was pretty badly abused and ihave a feeling its not going to last forever...</P>


    any suggestions?</P>

      It's not what you play. It's not how you play. It's the fact that you're playing that counts.

        hahaha... yeah, i suppose a continental would pull the VOX sound pretty well, wouldnt it?</P>


        and really, who would ever think of chopping such a rare beauty? not i.</P>

          Any of those transitorized
          Hammond/Suzuki models work quite nicely, as will just about any Yamaha
          Electone. Why heck, just about any transistor organ, console or
          otherwise, wil sound screechy, reedy, weedy and freakingly weird enough
          if you get rid of the speakers and run it through a Marshall or
          whatever you have around the igloo. </p>

          </p>

          Kinura comes to mind.</p>

          </p>

          There are probably plenty of Electones in Alaska. Good luck and keep us posted!

            Brand new Nord C1? Dealers can let you have it for like 20 bux a month (for the rest of your life) I plinked on one at a local shop, they are a very nice pro quality instrument , with 'virtual' sampled vox, farfisa and B3. You set them up em more or less the same way as the original instrument, it's not like pushing the '60's organ' preset on a GSM keyboard. </p>
