  • Hammond Super B information request

    Hello folks! I've got a line on a Hammond Super B with a Leslie, just looking for some information about it before I make a move. I'm wondering what the value of it might be today, it's in working condition but apparently has some sort of "glitch" as the old woman who contacted me described it. Also looking for basic information about the organ from other owners.

    The superB was Hammonds first venture into using sampled sounds. This was just before they went out of business. I have serviced several and owned one. Frankly, it looks better than it sounds. The glitch could be bad connections but understand replacement parts are no longer available. Since it does have MIDI, it can drive external sounds and has a touch sensitive keyboard. I ended up gutting mine and making it a MIDI controller. Only the keys and volume go out MIDI natively. I added the controls and drawbars with additional equipment. It was OK. It ended up being dismantled in the end.

    I would say it has very little resale value, if any.

      The midi aspect of it interests me a little. I believe ive seen your work on the super. If she doesnt want anything for it I might pick it up.

          It was first from hammond suzuki, followed by home SX and CX models all share same technology. it is now about 30 years old so failure is issue, on decent leslie they sound ok, not C3 but still hammond. For free certainly worth getting.

            I know it's no tonewheeler, unless she wants any real cash for it I'll be taking it. It's becoming more of a "gotta catch em all" scenario at my house. 5 organs and counting.

              There is no such thing as too many organs, just too small a house.
