Description: Not your ordifnay home organ. The manufacturer says about this instrument in it's description:" It was hand crafted and not mass produced" and it is a very fine instrument in every regard indeed. As a tube organ (All circuitry based on vacuum tube - except for the tone generator, which employs early transsistors) this keyboard instrument has a very warm natural and beautiful sound thant cannot be emulated with modern equpment. but the features that set this organ arapart form other early home organs: In the 1950's Baldwin invented touch sensitive keys. These are different form the touch sensitivity of modern equipment: The keys are each like a fader: lightly pressed there is soft sound and as the key is pressed fruther down the tone becomes fuller and louder, and also: once akey is pressed it can be released by "fading" the sound out. Then of course: stackato playing gives the instrument a completely different sound and feel. There is an amazing array of endless expression possiblities in playing this instrument - but most amazing about that: this is made possible with vintage tube technology! In my opinion: astonishing technology was developed and completely forgotten by time - This instrument is way under rated and under valued. The here mentioned is just the begginning: In addition to the above this organ features, yes, the regular expression pedal, then a reverb that is sent to a different amplifer channel for true stereo sound with a "panoramic tone control" lever, which is meant to dial in the ultimate spacial dimension. This instument features a 3 channel tube amplification system: 2 channles to which the sounds are mixesd and a third channel for the Leslie. In comparison: a standard home organ has only one amplifer channel. The 3 channel system results in an space filling almost 3 dimnesional orchestral sound (and feel) when playing this fine and beatiful instrument. The reverb in this unit is based on a propriuatory high frequency vaccum tube spring reverb circuit and the reverberation spring is humongous. In smmary: A much under rated fine crafted quality instrument offered here for much less than what I would deem deem it's actual value, based on the technology / hardware it includes. Great for Jazz, classical, or other, even experiemntal music, that would benefit form the wide range of expression possibilities and warm sound that this instrument offers.

Condition: Very Clean and flawless physical appearance. Fully working. All works nicely and sound sgreat! Original tubes installed.

Lot: The Baldwin Orgasnic PL-54 tube organ as described above. Priced to make it possible for you to buy this beautiful instrument - even though I would value it much higher than my asking price. Ideal will be a sale, where you come and pick up, (USA, California, Chico area, about 100 miles northwest form Sacramneto, CA.) but for additional cost I can pack/crate this instrument for freight - when all tranportation arrangements are arranged form your end.

Features (Detailed): The 5 octave keyboard can be used to play any of the quality sounds like a synth, but is really meant to be a complex controller for the pattern player to create complex dance music. Each key is used to control a specific function and the whole keyboard is segmented into 5 groups of controllers: The pattern player, The Activators (adds another layer of one shot events and loops), The Part Mixer (allows to toggle each part or groups of parts on/off), The Part selector (allows to toggle each part or groups of parts on/off to send the sound of it to the part controller section, which is composed of resonance filter control, filter cut-off and volume). Then there is the Key Shifter, whch allows to transpose the playing pattern / activator parts to any key. There is a sampler that allows to record / play 3 loops and 3 one shot events (can be played through the keyboard as well), and there is a performance recorder that allows to record the operation of any keys, knobs and switches. Then for the overall sound mix there is a impressing effects processor that can be "played" life with it's 2 knobs and a toggle switch ( + additional "hold" ). The effects processor offers: Delay, Phasing, Flanging, Auto pan, Slicing, Ring modulation, Lo-Fi, distortion, echo. There is a unit labelled "Isolator" which is basically a 3 band EQ that allows to twiddle it's knobs for life performance. There is a ribbon controller to which pitch bending, scrathing or pitch/BPM can be assigned and of course the unit can be used as a syntehsized/ keyboard to access any of it's 200+ voices. If using an additional MIDI controller this instrument can be easily exteneded to be the ultimate life dance music performance tool. Yamaha also offers software to download which allows to load one's own MIDI patterns into the machine. The unit has MIDI in and out and a quality internal amplifiecation system with built-in spealkers.
