Elka Panther 200 Duo Combo Organ

The instrument

Founded in 1965, Elka initially produced accordions, but subsequently developed its first electronic organs in competition with Farfisa. It was successful with the basic Panther series of portable, compact combo organs on metal stands. The two-manual Panther 200 followed the single-manual models 300 and 2300. It was available in white/black or red/black and, as a special feature, had 37 keys in the upper manual but only 30 in the lower manual.
