From the late 1930s and right up until 1970, Compton produced a range of electronic organs using the electrostatic system for both church and entertainment use.

I have been told that the legendary organist George Thalben-Ball had one for home practice! The electrones ranged from single manual instruments to large 4 manual specials.
