Hammond Organ A100


Hammond Organ A100

This auction is for a Hammond A100 tonewheel organ (Serial #2539), I believe it was built in the year 1959. The lady that had it before me bought it brand new and it never moved from the spot they delivered it to. It is in great condition and plays wonderfully. The drawbars have some pot noise when adjusted. Cosmetically, it is great for its age. The biggest blemish is on the left side which you can see in the picture.
There seems to be something going wrong with the percussion circuit. I can tell it's trying to work because the top drawbar on the "B" preset stops working when you turn the percussion on (which is supposed to happen)... but I can't hear the actual percussion working. I think a resistor or capacitor needs to be changed, but I would leave that to a Hammond tech. It's also possible that it's working perfectly and I just haven't figured it out yet.
The speakers are original and still sound great, and the tube amps inside sounds amazing with all original tubes. They especially sound awesome when pushed to loud volumes. One of the speakers in there is a Jensen P12N, I'm not sure what the other two speakers are but the model numbers start with "AO".  

I really love this thing, but I'm selling it because my band gigs a lot and I already carry around a suitcase Rhodes. I'd like to get a clonewheel organ of some kind to tote with me. I'm also moving to an apartment or condo soon, so yeah.
Let me know if you have any questions, local pickup in Atlanta, GA only please.
