   (0 reviews)

It also features chimes, a two speed Leslie effect as well as reverb and sustain effects. It also offers reverberating rhythm patterns, arpeggios, wow wow effect, and bass guitar.

The Berkshire Deluxe offers you a galaxy of built in Lowrey features. AOC (Automatic Organ Computer) turns one note melodies into three or four-note harmonic chords. And the Reverberating Rhythm section makes a solo performance sound like a combo group. Most organs have trombone voices or guitar voices, but Lowrey is the only one with Glide. This exciting control not only makes the trombone voice sound like a trombone...it makes it "act" like a trombone. You'll hear the "smear" from the slide. And the: guitar voice is more:than just guitar Hawaiian guitar. Want more? The Berkshire also has Wow-Wow and Bass Guitar, two. more Lowrey exclusives. If you are the versatile type, get the versatile organ... the Berkshire Deluxe by Lowrey.
