Almost a Yamaha CS-80...

Yesterday we found something very cool; a Yamaha Electone E-70 organ. This is not your typical side-of-the-road find either. Any Yamaha synth enthusiast could tell you that the E-70 was basically a stripped-down version of the Yamaha GX-1, which was the precursor to the famous CS-80. What is special about this type of organ is that it uses PASS technology (Pulse Analog Synthesis System) and has the same basic sound engine and presets that are found on the Yamaha CS-80. So basically, you get an "almost CS-80" in a huge, heavy console organ.

I apologize for the extremely crappy iPhone pic, but that's Analog Tom playing some speedy licks on the E-70 about 5 minutes after we got it in the door.

  1. Hey Mike,
    How about a little love for Will Workforgear helping carry it into the studio?
