Perhaps the littlest brother of the D-family of spinet+solo synth keyboard organs, but still not without a number of features that push it some way past the standard "home organ" fare. Okay, it looks like a regular Electone - the coloured tabs, the gray/white drum machine buttons, the balance and sustain paddles, etc, etc. However, the built in rotating speaker combined with the many flute stops on the lower and upper manual make for a passable (if slightly clean) Hammond impersonation. The upper and synth manual have some useable solo sounds, and the synth manual in particular has numerous modulation possibilities, not the least of which is the famous Yamaha side-to-side wiggle for vibrato/wah-wah. There is also an arpeggiator for the lower manual - an interesting and another useful feature not found on that many Electones.
