DUAL MANUAL CHOPPED
Finally¡¡.a Hammond Dual Manual Chopped that one guy can cart in from his van or truck and set up¡.by himself¡.in twenty minutes or less!
Sounds like quite a feat for a B-3 player doesn't it¡.but with the weight down to 185lbs., it's not just possible, it has been done over and over, with my chops.
This is what a BRAND NEW Dual Manual chopped Organ can look like from Hal 9000's shop in North Highlands, California. This particular Organ was built for fellow in Sacramento, California. I have more in stock and I will build to suit, in less than a month.
Colors or stain will be done to your satisfaction. All my organs are basically "ONE OFFS", custom built specifically for you. They come complete with a flight case and custom cover to protect their beauty.
They also come with a jack, that is attenuated, to plug in an extra keyboard to set on top that is designed to operate from the same volume pedal. Yes you can gig with something that looks this gorgeous, and still protect it while transporting to and from gigs.
All connections are done with simple 1/4 inch jacks. Bass pedals can also be added at an additional charge. This chop is the best one out there for the all around player that doesn't have a ¡°roady¡± yet. This organ is the "real deal" stock (tube type) Pre-Amp.
The only way to get that TRUE "Hammond"' sound, is to use the same guts that came in the "B-3.¡± All my organs are built with the stock "Hammond" guts. The cases are made so that a tech can work on them. All sides, back and top come off for easy access or repair. If you want to get a new side, back or top, just order them and I'll match or change colors, and mail the new parts right out.
I'm so confident in my product that I'm offering a Three (3) day money back guarantee, if you are not satisfied that they do what I say they will.
Cost for this organ is $4,000.00 if you supply the innards, and $5,000.00 if I do.
Thanks for looking and always remember to "Keep The Hammond Dream Alive.¡°
SINGLE MANUAL CHOPPED
This is a single manual chop that was made for a "well known blues player" in Sacramento, California named "Taki". It was constructed using an A-100 for the "guts". As can be seen in photo #3, the original Hammond pre-amp was retained for that "Hammond sound" that can't be achieved otherwise.
All of my custom organs are made to "customers specifications. Taki asked for a "two tone organ" with "light wood" for the top and the more traditional "dark wood" for the sides.
As can be seen from photo's # 1+2, I also built a custom matching Leslie. This organ weighs in at a very low 125 lbs. One person can cart this unit into a "gig" by themselves and set it up to play in about 20 minutes including the Leslie and all necessary connections.
The"custom stand" attaches with 4 simple "T" handle bolts. After attaching the stand, "photos #'s 5+6, it's a simple matter to "tilt" the organ into playing position, remove the flight case and cover (included in this deal), and begin to "wail' like you never have before.
This organ sells for $4,000.00 if you supply the "guts" and $5,000.00 if I do. "Orders are dealt with on a "cash up front" first come first served basis. Orders can be completed in 30 days or less, upon receipt of money. Pictured Leslie is "NOT INCLUDED" in this quote.

DIFFERENT COLOR COMBINATIONS AVAILABLE TO ORDER
HAMMOND BV TO B3
This is an old Hammond BV that I converted to a B-3 using an RT-3 for the guts.
ANOTHER DUAL MANUAL CHOPPED
This is a Dual Manual Chopped Organ built for John Noxon of Sacramento, Ca. An unusual project to say the least. He started with an old Model A (circa 1938).
Extensive modifications were done as follows: Drawbars were converted to the "Smooth style" type. This Organ didn't have a pre_amp, so one had to be built from scratch. A "digital reverb" was added with digital delay, (you get some pretty interesting sounds).The support stand was made using the old style legs that John already had, as can be seen in the photos. I mounted these legs to a separate wooden plate that I then mounted to the organ bottom for easy removal.
I don't like these legs. The stands that I make are far superior and much easier to use for set up .My Standard Dual Manual Chopped organs come with the stand seen in the Single Manual Chopped above. The prices on these Organs start at $4,000.00, if you supply the guts and $5,000.00 if I do. Flight case and cover are included.
ANOTHER SINGLE MANUAL CHOPPED
The 3 pictures are of the very first single manual chop I did (about 1992). It worked fantastic and is still being used by a fellow in the Bay area named Charlie Gillingham, who still tours with it a couple of times a year.It has been to England, Germany, France, and Japan, to name a few. He is still using it problem free for the last ten years.
