Elka Wilgamat - 1976 - Auto Accompaniment Unit SN 1376

Update: moving this one back on top as I had the wrong auction link. Sorry about that. It is now fixed.

via this auction

You can find demos of the Wilgamat in previous posts here.

"This is the first model, complete with the controller keyboard, attachments for music sheet stand and leg attachment pieces on the sides.

The legs and music sheet stand are not included.

The Wilgamat is in good condition but close to very good condition - with a few lighter scuffs and some smaller areas missing the wood finish - quite typical for these machines.

It’s had little use - the front panel looks almost new and the buttons and sliders work great. Fully functional and sounds amazing - please watch the video of this very unit for sale - no effects added.

Some general info:

It features three chord voices and two bass voices plus a range of great drum sounds, with a fill-in option engaged by pressing the wooden bar on top of the controller keyboard.
The auto accompaniment section is a two octave bass and chord synth that can be controlled by either an external two-octave keyboard, an Elka organ or foot pedal via a 31-pin cable.
The bass and chord patterns change depending on the rhythm, Salsa, Rock, Bossa Nova...
In total 16 different rhythm presets with fill-in option, two bass patterns (auto and walking bass), two bass sounds, with a bass sustain option.
The accompaniment consists of three sounds that of course sounds nothing like what they're named after: Piano, Guitar and Brass.
There are individual volume for each of the three sections, plus an overall master volume.
These standalone units are very rare to find complete with the original controller keyboard.

220 volt with EU plug Items ship from Italy."


  1. The link takes me to Ebay but there's nothing there.... This machine is not for sale on Ebay... Odd.

    1. Thanks for letting me know. The link is fixed.
