According to Google Maps, I'm 313 miles away. Too far?

Rider or U-Haul can provide. It's an RT-3. Think B-3 with a superior pedalboard.

Hey guys my friend who was looking at the T-312 and posted in that thread here yesterday would be a great fit for this.

 

If no one here has snagged it I just sent him a PM

Sweet!

 

What are the black buttons to the right of the lower manual? In google images I also see what looks like a pot knob there too. Hammond faq says:

Pedal solo system has separate volume control, providing the following solo effects: 32-foot bourdon, 32-foot bombarde, 16 foot solo, 8-foot solo, 4-foot solo, 2- and 1-foot solo, also tablets for mute control and pedal "ON".
but I'm not sure what that means. (Pedals have 2 drawbars. What is the "pedal solo" system?)

That is an additional monophonic synthesizer (tube based) which plays on the pedal tones. Each big square tab is a tilting stop.

 

They almost never work on old RTs unless they have been rebuilt. The normal pedal drawbars can still be used however.

The RT series was made as concert organs, as Moe said, the mono synth could generate different pedal timbres and pitches - the 32' bombarde would be a reed stop that is an octave lower than the 16' pedal drawbar, 32' bourdon is a flute stop also an octave lower than the 16' pedal drawbar. Other sounds were at pitches that would not be generated by the 16 and 8 drawbars (like 4 and 2 foot). Terminology based on pipe organs.

 

For most of the tonewheel players that visit this forum, those sounds would not be missed. If one also happens to play a traditional AGO style church organ, having the 32 note curved pedalboard means not having to get used to different spacing.

 

Of course, the RT series also weighs more than most of the other tonewheel Hammonds, due to these added features.

 

If someone was giving one away within driving distance from me, I'd figure it was worth investigating (and get a full 4 door truckload of helpers to load it).

If I only had a truck. :(

Or a brain. ;)

Or a heart.

 

Or courage - to do it even when my wife says "NO you have 2 hammonds in the garage already......"
