Hammond will be 80 yrs this year, I thought I'd celebrate...

...by getting a 1973 Hammond Concorde for my living room! :D Will go to Stockholm this Saturday and collect it... and I might even get a Leslie 310 to go with it, when I stop by Swedish Hammond on the way home... :)

 

Yeah, I know it's not a tonewheel... but it has a funky auto-vari drum machine built in... should count for something, right...? and the most important - dual drawbar sets and full pedal!

Why now? Well - it's a damn good price, cheaper than your average L100 - and I much rather have real pedals than a tone wheel engine at this moment.The main point is to have something to try to play bass pedals on. This Concorde is way cheaper than a set of XPK-200L pedals... Hard choice...nah... :)

In the near future I might MIDI-fy it, or even put in a HOAX board - after all, I'm an electronics engineer... I need a new hobby project!

 

Ah, let it be saturday soon! :)

Too much stuff, too little time, too few gigs, should spend more time practicing...!  🙄

Well, after discussing with players and technicians wiser than me, I won't pickup the 310 after all. I'll wait for a decent 760 or similar instead. Nothing will stop me from getting the Concorde though... :) not even a blizzard... now that I think of it - a blizzard would be nice! We need snow, damnit! First time in at least five years we have a christmas without snow... Anyway... Hammond Concorde in my living room! :D
