Hamptone BBEQ

Recommended Posts

I just finished installing the Hamptone BBEQ unit on my Hammond A-100. Just what I was searching for. Has control over volume, treble, bass and distortion. the unit is incredible. distortion like Jon Lord and Keith Emerson is what I have been trying to emulate. I am by no means a tech but I installed the unit myself. just a few wires to be soldered. I purchased the unit from BB Organ 763-571-8284. Bill Brown, the owner spoke to me many times and walked me through the installation. Bill was unbelievable and soldered some of the wires on the transformer for me before shipping the unit. I highly recommend anyone owning a Hammond purchase this unit. I am more than a happy camper........Larry

When I purchased my organ it came with a Hamptone LEQ3B unit

I've tried it and it does work but I don't use it.

 

My 122 also has a Hamptone leslie motor control unit in it to convert the leslie from one speed to 2 speed. Apparently at one time the former owner was having issues with slow motors and was constantly replacing them and someone suggested that the hamptone unit was an alternative to constant slow motor replacement so one of these units sits in the leslie.

the LEQ unit I hear is a nice unit, however it does not have the distortion function that is on the BBEQ unit. the adjustable distortion is what I have been looking for and am more than pleased with the BBEQ unit......Larry

hey Larry -

I see that there is a "new model coming soon". Any reason to wait for that one instead of the current one? I love my A100 through my 142, but it purrs like a kitten, can't get any growl out of it. This looks like something I would be interested in getting.

:nopity:
