The Hammond X77

Flagship Hammond Console, which featured alongside the Hammond X66 and HX100.

Snip from brochure:

"The sound of the X77 is as modern as its styling. You will thrill to the excitement of the sound created by the exclusive X77P Leslie Tone cabinet. Hammond X77 features include harmonically enriched tone-bars, pre-set percussion tabs, super quint, rhythm section, string bass and arpeggiator (for instant arpeggios). Each keyboard, pedal tones, reverberation and percussion can be independently directed through the multi channel X77P Leslie Tone cabinet."
