‘Klaus Wonderlich Hits Again’

‘Klaus Wonderlich Hits Again’
Paul Conneally
January 2022

Wunderlich was born in Chemnitz. He played the Hammond organ model C3 then mid 60s changed to model Hammond H100. Wunderlich also tried new sounds and released an album exclusively played on Hohner instruments: model Planet T, Clavinet D6 and String Melody string synthesizer (also branded as Logan String Melody.) With the introduction of the first synthesizers, Wunderlich briefly used Moog synthesizer and produced three albums with the instrument. He later combined the sound of a Hammond organ model H 100 with a Lowrey Organ Model H25-3 and Wersi model W248S which was called the “New Pop Organ Sound”.
.
He went on to change the synths and organs he used many times to make his Klaus defining organ works that were the mainstay of radiogram recollections through the seventies and eighties and beyond.

He was born in 1931 and died in 1997.

This album cover is now an involuntary painting in a charity shop in Stamford, UK.
