These discs were mostly sold individually, but all of them except for Rock & Rhythm were also available as a “Triple Header” set. Later, all four were available as the “Four Pack.”

70012 Classic Guitar

70015 Rock And Rhythm

You’d need five musical instruments to capture the whole sound as the OPTIGAN Music Maker does. The left hand is a rock band: electric guitar, electric bass, piano and drums… playing a driving rhythm pattern… perfect accompaniment for the electronic ãrock organä right hand.

70014 Easy Does It With Vibes

Like the soft, lush sounds of gentle jazz, the kind of sound that’s a perfect match for a fire-red sunset and dinner by candlelight? Then this is your kind of music. Left-hand chord buttons play vibes, piano, guitar, bass and drums. You play a full organ keyboard with your right hand.

70017 Organ Sing-Along

Listen to that old-timey plunka-plunk. Push your left-hand chord button and you’re playing organ, piano, guitar, bass and drums. Play the melody on a real skating-rink organ. Or, use only the left-hand chord buttons and sing the melody!
