I built this stuff years ago when I rescued a set of pedals and bench (1960's non-tonewheel Hammond) from the trash. I turned the pedals into a MIDI controller using a kit from Howard Cano, and I built the lower manual from a Roland A-33. It isn't pretty, but it works, and it'll make an excellent practice set up for someone who wants to learn.

This stuff is heavy and not very road worthy so I don't want to ship it, but if someone wants to come to San Antonio and get it, it's yours.

Here's a link to a Dropbox folder with pictures. I'm offering the lower manual, stand, pedals, and bench only. NOT the XK3c.

Rats. Wish I was closer. I've been wanting a set of MIDI pedals.

Very kind of you to offer that!
Wish I was nearby, but being in NY, it's not an option.
It's nice to see there are still some generous folks out there.
Happy New Year to you!!!

It looks "tfort" has worked out a way to get the whole thing to Albuquerque for his son. This is exactly what I had in mind: passing it on to a kid who wants to learn to play Hammond!
