I owned one of these once, don't remember what I paid for it, but it was probably more than they are worth. I sure love it, wish I still had it, but it was god awful big, and a pain to move. I actually had bass pedals for it too. I wish I could find the guy I sold it to and talk him into selling it back to me! I have owned tons of synths, keyboards and organs, everything from hammonds to moogs, rolands, paias, etc. Right now I own a polymoog synthesizer, a pro one, and a rogue, love them all to death, but nothing can compete with the white elephant. The combination between the weird moog sounds and the organ/percussion is one of a kind. Granted it is only a satellite, but along with the glorious organ it's enough.

I had a Moog CDX for a while. I loved the organ a lot. I love the Farfisa impersonation. The Moog sucked. I had an MG-1, Source and Opus III at the time so I never bothered to use the mono synth too often. It hurt my ears. If it wasn't so HUGE I would still have it. However, it's heavy as hell and takes up too much space in my apartment. It was definitely worth the $100 price tag that I purchased it for. I had to fix the moog and clean the contacts in it for it to fully work. I ended up selling it for about $175 after all of the repairs. It was a good organ experience. Try using a delay or other modulation pedal with it. It sounds wicked. 4 out of 5 for it's cool looks and mean organ sounds. subtract 1 for it's size and crap moog sounds.

I just found your site today, read a little and wanted to make a few comments. I owned a tube model Cordovox, CG 2 model. I purchased it new and played it until the Chicago Musical Instrument Co. brought out the CG 5 model that I still own and play. The tube model was a low wattage amplifier and was used on Gary Lewis & the Playboy's recordings. It had few tone switches, but produced a fuller, richer sound than the plain accordion that I was using. I bought the rotating speaker that was available back then and then had more power and a fuller, richer, more realistic organ sound. Dick Contino also used a tube model on one of his albums. But the accordian was terrable. Sloopy, slow key action, and would choke-out when used for the Polish-ethnic weddings music we played. The transistor model, the CG 5, was a much superior instrument. It's accordian was of a much better quality. The organ, which I was told was a Lowery Organ, was also greatly improved. It was the first electronic organ-accordian that could mimmic the Hammond B-3 sound when used with 145 or 147 Leslie speakers. The CG 5 model that I purchased new in about 1965 or 1966 still plays perfectly. It has had some problems and has been repaired a few times, but I cannot complain. The biggest complaint was retuning the tuning pods located inside the combination amplifier/generator. That problem was solved when I used the Leslie speakers with-out the main 15 inch speaker. No more vibrations, no more retuning problems. I hope to someday purchase a new Midi-Accordion, but the old Cordavox will be kept as a spare back-up unit. The company did bring out another model or two that had a small generator to produce the organ sounds, but I never got to try one out. Ed Nabozny, 37 Deal Ave, Ft. Walton Beach, Fl. 32548
