Pianomate, made by Dubreq Studios, London.

Pianomate was a four-octave, keyless electronic organ or analogue synthesizer manufactured briefly from about 1970 by Dubreq Studios Ltd in London. It consists of a control unit with plunger switches placed along the back of the keys of a piano, activated when the piano is played. The unit is attached to an amplifier and loudspeaker, and has a volume control pedal. Three timbres and vibrato can be selected. The mechanism resembles that of the earlier Organo.
