old organ information

Post by alex78 »

I'm posting this on behalf of a friend. He came across this instrument "webo welson privilege 400", and wonders if it's worth repairing and keeping, even as a vintage collective item. No information on google regarding the specific model, any info would be apreciated.

It seems to be a very rare instrument built by an Italian company, a combination of an electronic organ and the Welson Syntex synthesizer (top keybed), probably built in the 70’s. Not sure about the sound but it might be an interesting piece of gear for someone who likes to collect vintage instruments

Thank you for your insight. In fact we have no clue how it sounds because it's circuits need repair, that's why my friend wanted to know if it's worth diving into it. As he told me, it has two speakers inside, one of them looks like a leslie...I didn't know there were instruments with built in rotary speakers.

Yes, some Farfisas from the 70s had an integrated Leslie speaker too.

Unfortunatelly we live far from eachother, but I hope I can have the chance to test it once it's playable again. And maybe sample it if there are any interesting tones coming out of it.
