I got me a free B3 & 122

17 posts in this topic

This weekend was so busy before I left for LA that I forgot to post about this here. On Friday afternoon I got a message from my long-time piano mover friend that he had a Hammond organ in his truck that a family was throwing away. He didn't know what model it was but it had a speaker. So I asked him to send me a pic and he did. One look and I knew what it was.

He delivered it on Saturday morning and didn't even charge me for the delivery! :)

It's a 1974 or '75 mint Hammond B3 with matching 122 Leslie.

I'm a lucky dog! :)

That's Stella sitting next to me; she's almost two years old and loves music.

Real life validation of the old adage; "you can never overestimate the value of a long-time piano mover friend."

Haha! Cute!

To connect a C3 to a 122 yes you need a 6122 kit. You should also have a tech do it for you if you're not familiar and comfortable with electronics. There's 300+ volts DC running inside a Hammond (B+ voltage) and the Leslie and it can easily kill you if you don't know what you're doing.
