Electronic Combo Piano
This is a great, classic-sounding combo piano from the 1970s.
It features five basic sounds:
Additionally, there is a bass sound (active in the last octave and 1/2) that is activated by pulling on the "Bass" knob - which also adjusts its volume
There is a very "groovy" vibrato effect, a master tuning knob,, a master volume knob, and Sustain, which can be activated by the front panel knob, or by a standard 1/4" pedal
As many keyboards of this era, the instrument is self-contained in its tolex hard case, and there is a metal stand for sheet music.
The sound is quintessentially 1970s, with an excellent analog tonal quality to the sounds, and it is even possible to mix the bass and the piano/clavi sound separately, because this instruments has two separate outputs for them! Great for adding separate different effects to the bass, and the piano sounds
The vibrato in particular is deliciously analog and great-sounding, and it's very easy to obtain some marvelous "Beatlesque" organ effects by applying the vibrato to the Hiigh Clavichord sound.
It only has five sounds and a bass sound, but this little keyboard has lots of personality, and a wonderful vintage sound!
