Dug up from the archives and presented free to the
public is our newest genetic specimen: the Magnus
Chord Organ. This small subspecies is closely
related to the accordion and harmonica, with the key
difference being the source of the air movement
generating from an electric fan as opposed to moving
bellows or lungs. Originally three keyboard octaves,
and including a number of accordion-like chord
buttons, this family instrument was widely
distributed in the 1970’s. It has a raw, charming
quality to its sound.
Sampled Magnus Chord Organ, 48kHz,
3 octaves, 12 chord buttons.
