Wersi Comet W10T Wersi Comet W10S

The Wersi Comet (W10S, W10T) was one of the last mostly analogue Wersi organs, being available in a Spinet console (W10S) and a Portable cabinet (W10T). Being a later model Wersi, it featured the new "solo ensemble" section, as well as a new 'solo guitar' section. The Comet also could be played from remote satellite keyboards, making it possible for others to play along, or for a single organist to command a three or four manual instrument for a small fraction of the cost of the flagship Galaxy (W4SKT) model!
