  • Info on Hammond G 100 Series Wanted Please



    Hello, just joined this forum.</p>

    Looks to be a very interesting and informative site.</p>

    I have access to a complete Hammond G series. Model number G162, serial number 182.</p>

    It includes the amps and speakers. Not really certain of operational condition.

    </p>

    Is there any collector value? Is it desirable. Worth sticking money into?

    </p>

    I haven't been able to find much info other than it was made around mid 1960's.</p>

    I was told it may have Dynaco amps.</p>

    Any info would be appreciated. Thanks in advance!!

    </p>



    </p>

    Than

    It should have a Klann console and Dynaco amps; you'll find the amps (and nothing else!) have real value on ebay.</P>


    The pictures are very interesting. Thanks for posting them. One question: why is there a muffin tin in the bottom of the scanner/amp cabinet?</P>

      Thanks, not sure why muffin tin is in there.</p>

      Maybe to bake muffins from the Dynas heat. If nothing else the amps are really what I want if rest has no value.

      </p>

      Update on condition:</p>

      Unit was in working condition last winter, though not sure how well.</p>

      Speakers aren't worth anything? </p>

      Any idea what kind of speakers they would be or sizes as they are supoosed to be original.

      </p>

        The Hammond brochure didn't specify speaker sizes. Rumor has it that they were "guitar speakers" so don't expect much. </P>


        It would be interesting to hear it play.</P>

          Thanks again Mark.</p>

          I did get the organ, it is complete and working.</p>

          Speakers turned out to be Baldwin QA's.</p>

          Not worth my time trying to sell unless I could get a couple thou. Guess I'll just be parting the thing out for the amps.</p>

          Question? If they are so rare, maybe 100-200 made why is there no collector value? (how many could be left?)

          </p>

          </p>

          If anyone wants to offer on parts let me know.</p>

          Thanks</p>
