Mattel Optigan with 12 Discs - Model 35012 Mediterranean

via this auction

"The Optigan has a unique sound which is attributed to the optical discs containing pre-recorded backing tracks and unique lead tone for the keyboard portion. Each disc has five accompaniment tracks which can be triggered. Usually a beat, various instrumental accompaniment & often more percussion. Each disc is loaded with unique and very musical content.

Includes Twelve Discs! Original discs are rare and very sought after- so this is a rare opportunity to pick up a stack of them along with a sweet Optigan!

Pop Piano Plus Guitar
Guitar in 3/4 time
Dixieland Strut
Latin Fever
Gay 90s Waltz
Bluegrass Banjo
Sleigh Ride
Majestic Pipe Organ
Hear and Now
Big Band Beat
Classic Guitar

Playing condition:
Working - the keyboard works great, all but two keys play (the highest and lowest) are not making sound. A couple of the 'chord organ' buttons on the left side are intermittent but this is something that can be repaired with contact cleaner.

More about the Optigan:
If you are not familiar with the Optigan, the sound is not 'hi-fidelity' but is very unique and is loved by many admirers familiar with what it does!"
