I remember going to my aunt and uncles house on Long Island, NY as a child. Besides playing with Matchbox cars on their carpeted steps I loved going into the basement and using the Organ. I have no idea what kind of Organ it was but thinking back it was surely all analog including the drums. I would freak out stomping on all the pedals and pushing the zillion buttons that all lit up when pressed. I remember playing a rotation of the The Imperial March (Star Wars), When the Saints Go Marching In and Happy Birthday.
One of the bits of NAMM news that caught my eye was the Lowrey A5000 Organ. Honestly I have no real clue about modern home Organs but just look at this thing! Tell me you wouldn’t want to go nuts pushing all these buttons.
“The cabinet of the Prestige is built from the finest materials with steam bent curves giving an elegant look to this new top of the range instrument. The layout has an natural curve allowing you to see the whole panel easily whilst playing. New button design means that the panel is very easy to read and is angled to make button operation easier. Combine this with a full colour touch LCD screen and you have what we believe is the easiest organ to use in the world.” – allensmusiccentre.co.uk
