Elka Panther 300

Elka Panther 300 Combo Organ 1966 (White Edition)

The Italian company Elka, which produced originally accordions, made a variety of combo organs since the mid-60s, and later various types of analog synthesizers, among others of the legendary Synthex from 1984.

The Elka Panther 300 is probably one of the rarest and coolest looking combo organs. It was marketed under the name Elka as well as Unicord. The Panther 300 sounds very similar to a Vox Continental, but it also has a wonderful mellow flute sound and a string registration that is similar to Farfisa. It was available in several color combinations.
