This relatively small organ uses vacuum-tube-based circuitry to both produce and amplify its sound, containing 30 tubes of 8 different types in total. No transistors are used. Manufactured in the mid-1950's. Somewhat like an accordion, it has a section of 96 chord buttons, normally played with the left hand, and a 37-key manual generally used for playing melodies with the right hand. It has two foot pedals for playing bass notes; the left plays the root of the chord, and the right plays the fifth up (or down, depending on the chord) from that. It has no expression pedal like most organs, but instead uses a lever moved with the right knee to control its volume.
