Combo Continental Organ

The ruin of many a poor boy, the spikey British transistorized favourite.
Combo Continental (Front View)
A design and sound icon. A British classic. It’s the Vox Continental organ. The definitive transistor organ sound is now available in the format everyone wants: an easy-to-use organ Rack Extension in your Reason studio.
With its dual tone drawbars that can be used separately or in combination, this c.1973 vintage piece gear might occasionally hum and growl at you, but the brightly coloured beast can handle any type of music you can throw at it — be it rock, pop, blues, classical organ or modern electronica and EDM with a vintage twist.
Get that instant sparkle of 60s pop charm or deep 70s ska to your tracks, and immediately evoke a recognizable and bygone age in a way that analogue modelling cannot describe.
The future, like the past, is bright. It’s orange.
