video upload by Vintage Keys Studio

"Steve Christie from Vintage Keys Studio demonstrates a fully working* Stereo Philips Philicorda GM 751 Organ in all its glory.

This organ came to our studio in need of repair and has been fully restored by Steve. It is a valve/transistor hybrid from 1967. Later models were solid state.

Comes with a LDR based swell pedal which attaches to the base of the organ via a DIN plug. It has two internal speakers that face out left (source signal) and out right (source signal / reverb switched) for a stereo effect.

The organ is mounted on a sturdy iron frame with attractive wooden supports, and comes with its own equally attractive music stand.

Valves: 8 x ECC83, 1 x ECL82,
Neon Lamps/Diodes: 5 x Z70U, 68 x ZA1001, 1 x ZZ1000
Transistors: 3 x AC125, 2 x AC128, 4 x AD149

This organ has been used in sessions for many years and continues to remain a reliable keyboard with a wonderful variety of sounds which can be modified using the 5 filters and their combinations, 3 organ registers, Vibrato circuit and Reverb (called 'Reverbeo') - on German models this is labelled 'Hall'

Steve and other session musicians from Vintage Keys are available to record this organ for you as a layer to add to your own project. Please contact us at for more details."
