Hammond at local Thift Store

14 posts in this topic

Yea, I know it is the middle of nowhere.

I wouldn't know a A-3 from a B-3 if you dropped it on my head but here is what I saw.

They want $2,000.00

I has the full set of peddles that detach and one gas peddle looking thingy in the actual unit.

Visually it is really clean. It looks to be from the 70's, it has that cassette tape option as shown in another thread.

I looked at it closely and could not find any indication of a model number, there was a sticker with information, but nothing that rang any bells with me.

Although I passed on the organ I did pick up a really clean copy of Bill Holman's Great Big Band for a quarter.

I've got the phone #er if any one is interested.

Anything Hammond with a cassette player in it isn't worth $2,000. Maybe $20... :g

Maybe A-100, but like I said, I really don't know much about this stuff. I might be back out that way tomorrow so if some can tell me where to look for a model #er I'll check it out.

If it's got a cassette it's not an A-100.

Like Soul Stream said, anything with a built-in cassette player is basically junk. That's when Hammond went away from the tonewheel generator and into transistors.

And since when do "thrift" stores sell something like an organ for $2000?! Somebody got on the web, did minimal research, and thinks they are being savvy.

I guess you just need to know who to ask. :cool:

It's funny, because a buddy of mine found a mint Hammond C3 for $125 at a local thrift store. Now there's an organ that's worth $2000. So, like I said, someone at the store probably went to Ebay and looked at Hammond organs and got the idea that this one was worth a bunch of money.

But it ain't...

....must have been a guitar player. They're always the guys telling me they find Hammond B3s for $200. <_<

What would an M3 fetch for a price?
