Genuine Hammond organ now available!

I've recently acquired a fully restored 1949 Hammond CV organ. The CV was a predecessor of the B3, although it contains identical tone generating machinery. It does not have percussion, although I will be adding a percussion module, soon. The electronics circuitry (all valve!) has just been authentically re-capped and re-resistored.

My Native Instruments B4 VST instrument will be seeing a lot less use, now that the real thing is available! The full-size pedalboard has been removed for the photograph.

For those not familiar with the Hammond organ, it is the legendary instrument used on countless rock and jazz recordings (A Whiter Shade of Pale, music by Jimmy Smith, Joey De Francesco, Barbara Dennerlein etc.)
