Realistic ToneWheel Sound And Feel!

The VK-88 Combo Organ is the ultimate instrument for players who crave the most authentic organ sound and feel. This gorgeous double-manual instrument incorporates Roland's advanced "Virtual ToneWheel" organ sound with COSM Amp and Rotary Speaker Modeling - plus waterfall keyboards that play just like a classic organ. A D Beam with multicolored LED gives players enhanced real-time control, while two additional harmonic bars and Active Expression let players blend in other instrument tones.

Authentic
Even the most sophisticated organ aficionado will revel in the beautifully designed VK-88. Its gorgeous wooden cabinet captures the look of a classic, while the traditional panel layout - with nine harmonic bars per manual (upper/lower), two harmonic bars for the pedal part, and two additional harmonic bars for Orchestral Tones - gives players intuitive control of the organ sound. Dual waterfall keyboards with quick-firing keys make it possible to play using traditional organ techniques like glissandos.

Advanced Virtual ToneWheel Sound
The VK-88's organ sounds are based on the same advanced Virtual ToneWheel sound engine used in the acclaimed VK-8 Combo Organ. Players can choose from four authentic tone wheel types - Vintage 1, Vintage 2, Solid and Clean - and then further adjust the sound using the harmonic bars. The VK-88 even lets players adjust the leakage level and click sound - just like the organs of yesteryear!

Note: The stand, bench and pedal board shown in the picture are available separately.
