Pari is an (Italian?) company which made tonewheel organs in the 1970's. The Pari's were more-or-less copies of Hammond ToneWheel spinets. Some of the details of their construction were different, however. For example they used "tone drums" in the tone generator rather than Hammonds discrete ToneWheels.

A more complete write-up (written by HenningHøjen) about the workings of the old Pari's (along with nice pictures of the guts) can be found at

There is a rumor (fueled by this web page that Pari is working on a brand-new tonewheel organ.
