I've had two of these lovely combo organs. The first was an all valve affair which I never heard working. I paid 50 pounds for it not working. A few valves and trasistors had gone. I tried for 2 years to get some. A tech also tried, but no luck. I eventually sold it for 60pounds to someone who said the parts were easy to get, yet as to this point also hasn't been able to locate any.

Then, I picked up a fully working 752 for 5 pounds at a boot sale. No legs, but so what. The wood work is in good condition. I was offered 125 pounds for it immediately. I'll never sell it, though. It's love. I expected the spring reverb to be the same as on my old M1...very wet. It isn't. I took it for repair and the tech told me that it was fully working. The sounds was more subtle and reflected the technology of the time.

The sounds. Beautiful. This is a fantastic little organ. The vibrato and reverb combined make for a distinctive tone. It compliments the Hammond L100 I've used for years.It is also almost portable. 2 can lift it easily. The look is very 1960s European and quite modernist. If you can fine a good working example, buy it straight away. You will fall in love with the sound and look. Internally, it's a work of art. Beautifully constructed. Miles better than the shoddy Farfisa etc.

I know these units are highly regarded and are hard to get hold of nowadays.

Hi. I baught my filicorda at Gruvan (the mine; a second hand boutique). It costed me 250 spänn (about 33 dollars) and it was kind of broken. I´opened it and I saw the magnificant machine. I fixed it with a skruvmejsel (screwdriver) and tejp (tape). I was just stummed and amazed that afrer mi work was done, the philicorda worked perfectly (Fyrverkeri-bra). I always use it in my bands Döda Slakta Äta (kill slaughter eat) and the new popular swedish band Sex, drugs and rollerblades. I am about to start a new orchestra witch is going to be called grogghaggorna (the old alcoholic women), and the beautiful philicorda will be the center of it all.

My philicorda

this title is somewhat ironic, because it's only been mine for a few hours. i didn't know i'm getting one either. i was walking with a friend down the street, noticed a small keyboard laying in a pile of junk in a pickup truck. i wasn't really pleased with the first note i left on the whindsheild, which asked the car owner to call me when he gets there, so finaly i just took it and left my phone number there. i came back again after 5 minuts and the car was gone. no call. it's mine. what the fuck is this thing?!

god bless the net. i've just sold my shitty piano. this is good vibes. up till now it's a 5/5

I got one of these for $10 at a thrift store with no power chord. I got a computer monitor chord installed and this thing has been my pride and joy ever since. It's got a real eerie fat 60's organ sound to it and it looks cool as hell to boot. I like running it through some distortion or a wah to get really grumbling basslines. I am going to start playing out with one of these days.
