Worth mentioning only because it implements additive synthesis.

Though it’s questionable that a tonewheel organ qualifies as an electronic instrument. You can turn the power for the electronics completely off, connect a high-impedance headphone directly to the tonewheel generator and still get sound. The electronics are only required for amplification (and envelope shaping for percussion) but not for tone generation. An electric guitar isn’t considered an electronic instrument either.
