Hammond X77GT Console711 viewsThe X77 was Hammond's last attempt to replace the B3, following the H100, which had reliability problems and the X66, which wasn't a pure tonewheel, but a hybrid, and sales were limited by its over the top price.  The X77 however shares the same extended drawbar setup as the other two, having 11 drawbars for each bank on the upper keyboard, 10 per bank on the lower and 4 for the pedals.  Drawbar #10  provides 7th & 9th harmonics while drawbar #11 provides 10th & 12th harmonics of an 8' Unison. This one is the upgraded GT version and came with aluminium covered pedals a la X66 and a "clip on" version of the Hammond "Rhythm II" unit that was made by Ace-Tone (later Nihon Hammond) in Japan - the same unit that was built into the T400 & N300 spinets. Its former life was spent in a born again pentecostal  church where it no doubt had to provide accompaniment for happy clappy choruses aimed squarely at the lowest common denominator of human intelligence, which frankly is way beneath what a magnificent instrument of its calibre is capable of.  It's been with me since 2002, no longer has to has to suffer the indignity of its previous life & I will never part with it.  Must have been an eminent person who said "After all, there are only two types of organ: pipe and Hammond/Leslie". 55555

Yamaha Electone EL90T531 viewsThe top spinet in Yamaha's 3rd generation of digital organs, the EL90 had several improvements over the previous "H" models.  These included an AWM or digital sampled component of each voice, a large LCD display to control all functions, including its drawbars, 3 types of digital reverb, and a built in MDR disk drive, whilst retaining and improving all the editing and programming features of the previous series.  Amplification was greatly upgraded to a 6 channel, 8 speaker system, and optional KA series tone cabinets were available.  Accessories included registration and voice disks, available from both Yamaha & independent suppliers, eg. Hector Olivera's Turbo Upgrade. EL90T is my current Yamaha, purchased in 1991.55555
