Vox Jennings Univox Tube Valve Synth Organ w/ Case

via this auction

PRODUCT DESCRIPTION: This listing is for a very rare Vox Jennings Univox Tube Synth/ Organ.

ACCESSORIES INCLUDED: This item comes with custom leslie-style-connector cable, and does not include any accessories.

PHYSICAL CONDITION: Very Good - The body has many dings and scrapes from its 50 years being on this earth. All four of the lid latches work flawlessly! Each and every key on the keyboard as well as the dials and tabs are in terrific working order! The electronics however are incomplete and currently not connected. Attached power cable is in great condition as is the included connector cable! Overall condition is very good!

WORKING CONDITION: Not Fully Tested - The keyboard, and the keys, and the tab switches below them all seem to be in terrific woring order. However, the electronics and wiring are not fully intact so this Univox could not be fully tested. But each function or feature on this thing, such as the keys themselves, all look to be in great shape. Servicing this vintage unit would turn it to a gem!


UNPACKAGED DIMENSIONS: 12" x 23" x 13.5"

New Vox Continental: From Tradition to Innovation

Published on Sep 1, 2017 Vox Amps

"The original VOX Continental, a transistor organ that appeared in the 1960s, is a timeless classic beloved by top players as a practical keyboard with a home on any live stage. Now, a completely new keyboard that carries this concept into the present day has been again released by the VOX brand.

The VOX Continental uses a simple and intuitive interface that allows quick accessibility of every function. The high-quality sound engine section is centered on organ, electric piano, and acoustic piano, and provides a wealth of stage-ready sounds. In addition, the Continental features a powerful effects section to enhance these sounds, and even analog valve drive powered by Nutube, the cutting-edge vacuum tube. It's an instrument that perfectly fits your live performance requirements for a variety of styles including rock, pop, jazz, and more.

The air of tradition that emanates from VOX organs, together with the innovation of decades of research, down to the illuminated VOX logo shows the new VOX Continental is a fusion of both, redefining the existence of the modern stage keyboard."

"星流" Vox Starstream (using Sustain Model) played by Yuichi Onoue(尾上祐一)

Published on Jun 3, 2016 TorigoyaSound

This one in via TorigoyaSound. Filing this one under guitar synths. Listen to the sustained synthetic tones coming out of it.

"星流" - Star Stream
written and performed by Yuichi Onoue(尾上祐一)

Yuichi Onoue plays Vox Starstream VSS-1 Modeling Guitar. Using 'Sustain Guitar' model. The notes(chords) you play are sustained.

Starstream is basically electric/acoustic modelling guitar.
It includes 27 preset tones processed by a powerful DSP engine AREOS-D system. But there are three synthetic sound presets, too. 'Sustain' is one of them. The notes you play are sustained with vibrato(or without vibrato). Of course, this sustain sound is processed by DSP engine AREOS-D system."

A Few NAMM Pics & Comments in via Atomic Shadow Including the New VOX!

These in via Atomic Shadow

"The Vox keyboard is styled after the classic Continental combo organ. It has CX3 and Farfisa models as well as the classic Vox. It also has piano, clavs, Trons, and staple synth sounds. So it's in the same ball park as the Hammond SK-1 or the Roland thing.

The OB6 sounds fabulous! I am really impressed with the musicality of this thing. While I was there who wandered in but Tom Oberheim himself. I stepped back and fumbled with my phone but caught the moment. It was as if two unicorns had wandered in to a clearing. How often do you see something like this?

The Arturia Matrix Brute is a 3 oscillator mono synth with a Steiner filter and a classic ladder filter. The push button matrix is similar to a VCS3 pin matrix for connection modulation sources and destinations. Has CV options on the back. Again, this thing sounds incredible! The other photo is from a panel discussion about the future of synthesis. Check the roster! There was enough brain power on that stage that they could build an atomic bomb from items found in the room! Axel Hartman was in the audience."

60's Vox Guitar Organ V251

Vox Guitar Organ Demo

Published on Jun 11, 2010 Highnumbers

"Demo of a mid 60's Vox Guitar Organ----a rare and strange hybrid instrument that incorporated a Vox Continental organ and a Phantom guitar."

Note the video is from 2010 and likely not the same unit listed below.

via this auction

"This is a very rare and all original 1960's Vox Guitar Organ Model V251. Comes with with case, all accessories, and original hang tag! Super clean conditionj, just amaazing! Everything obn this unit seems to be in good working order except the repeater section is extremely faint, alsmost not there, so it will need some service. A great addition to any collection.

Here is a link to a You Tube Video demo, [embed above]


The Vox Guitar Organ was one of the most complicated and innovative products attempted by JMI Vox in the 1960s. The brain child of Vox lead engineer Dick Denney, the Guitar Organ added solid state organ circuitry derived from the Vox Continental organ to a Vox Phantom guitar. This allowed the Guitar Organ to be played as a guitar or an organ, either separately or combined.
The Vox Guitar Organ had six organ tone generator circuits built into a cavity in the guitar body, one generator for each of the six strings. The contacts that trigger the organ circuits to play were found in the frets of the guitar. Each fret on the guitar neck had six electronic contacts, one under each string. The circuit to the organ tone generator was completed when any of the guitar strings, which were grounded, were depressed to touch their respective fret mounted contact.

The organ tone generators developed different pitches based on the number of ohms separating the organ tone generator input signal from ground. The higher the electrical resistance, the lower the tone.

To facilitate the production of the correct organ pitch for each location on the neck, a series of twenty one resistors interconnected the twenty one fret contacts under each string, one resistor per fret. Depressing a string on the first (or lowest) fret would cause the signal to travel through all twenty one resistors before triggering the organ tone generator. Hypothetically, if each resistor was 100 ohms, the total accumulated resistance from the first fret contact to the tone generator would be 2100 ohms. This high resistance would make the lowest tone. Depressing the same string on the twelfth fret would require the signal to travel through only 9 resistors, or 900 ohms. This lower resistance would make a much higher tone. Playing on the highest fret would eliminate all but one resistor, and make the highest tone.

A remote power supply (seen at lower left) provided the necessary voltages to operate the organ circuitry and connected to the instrument with a multi pin connector cable."

Arturia Introduces the VOX Continental V

Published on Jun 5, 2014 Arturia Web·131 videos

"Vox V is a recreation of the classic VOX Continental 300 organ. This organ was used in countless classic hits of the 60's as well as part of the 80's ska/Two Tone sound.
Our version not only has modeled the classic Vox Continental 300 but we add the voice engine of the follow up instrument designed by Tom Jennings, the Jennings J70.
Each circuit was analyzed and then modeled. Not another sample library with a custom graphic, VOX V accurately recreates all the aspects of the original.

A special thanks to the Towerbrown for the soundtrack and featuring:
