There is a brand of electric/electronic organ from the 1980s I am trying to remember - can you help?

There was a big brand of dual-keyboard electronic organ in the 1980s that I used to see each year at the Modern/Ideal Homes Shows. Their organs tended to all have dark wood cases and I believe another feature was that the switches tended to be translucent plastic and were illuminated. The brand may have started with the letter B, but I'm not sure about that.

The brands I can remember (which do not include the one I am trying to find) are:

Lowrey

Hammond

Technics

Yamaha

Farfisa

Casio

Roland

Hohner

    The only "B" I can think of was Bontempi.

    If I remember right, a lot of their products tended to be low cost / gimmicky things for kids, or at least that's the impression I got.

    There is a picture of one of their dual manual organs in this article:

    This is other stuff from that maker:
