Your search for accurate and authentic vintage organ sound and feel is over.
The Roland VK-88 is the ultimate instrument for players who crave authentic organ sound and feel. Retro-styled double-manual organ incorporates advanced Virtual ToneWheel organ sound with COSM modeling, plus classic waterfall keyboards. A multicolored LED D Beam gives enhanced realtime expression control, while 2 harmonic bars and Active Expression lets you blend tones together.
From the gorgeous wooden cabinet to the traditional panel layout, this Roland organ captures the look of a classic. Fans of vintage organs will find the 9 harmonic bars per manual (upper/lower), 2 harmonic bars for the pedal part, and 2 additional harmonic bars for orchestral tones intuitive and natural.
The advanced Virtual ToneWheel sound engine gives players their choice of 4 authentic tone wheel types - Vintage 1, Vintage 2, Solid, and Clean. The sound can be adjusted even further using the harmonic bars. Adjustable leakage level and click sounds add even more yesteryear ambiance.
The Roland VK-88 organ sports 4 types of COSM amp models in addition to its accurate vintage rotary speaker model. Now you can get any organ tone imaginable - from the clean sound of a gospel organ to the gritty sound of a rock organ with righteous tone and distortion.
The light-sensing D Beam controller offers direct manipulation over a variety of preset options such as rotary speed (Slow/Fast). And with Active Expression, players can slowly fade in one of the VK-88's Orchestral Tones using an optional EV-7 Expression Pedal.
By adding the optional Roland PK-25, players gain a 25-note pedalboard ideal for playing bass. Designed to match the distinctive look of the VK-88, the PK-25 also includes a detachable expression pedal and 2 footswitches.

Comments about Roland VK-88 Combo Organ:
When my uncle came to the party, his giant organ was sticking out. Everyone knew he wanted to use it. He took me to the basement and demonstrated how to tickle the ivory. Soon, he let me practice on his organ every week. I discovered that I was very good at tickling those organs, and eventually made a career out of it. This organ is terrific! However, my mom gets mad when I use it. But I saw her using my organ once, and also my uncle's. But it's okay, because my uncle is on my dad's side.
