I think I'd have to sell an organ or two for that.

Probably a hammond

When I first bought the Evolver years ago, I thought and couldn't believe how easy it sounded like a twisted industrial synth right out of the box, twisted mainly because of all the modulations you can do that others can't. Other synths don't sound industrial out of the box, but the presets were all types of industrial. If you like tweaking, get this. Otherwise the ESQ or AX synths mentioned are good.

+1 for Waldorf synth. The Waldorf Pulse is really inexpensive analog synth but you can look into the softsynths as well (IMO for this kind of stuff Reason 5 could come handy)
