  • Is B3 fall board solid wood or solid core ply?

    Most of the better consoles have built up panels. The core is poplar or some other stable wood, followed by a 90 degree veneer of usually mahogany, then the final veneer of walnut, 90 degrees from the mahogany, parallel to the grain of the core wood. Valhalla makes finished and unfinished reproductions and they are worth every penny.

      I will add that Valhalla does great work. I have used several of their pieces. Perfect!. Pricey.. But you get what you pay for..
      I rebuild Hammonds and Leslies. Please visit my website. tbstonewheels.com It's still in the works but is up and running. My personal setup is a Model A # 2203 with Trek II percussion, 122RV and 2 31h's. One is fitted with two speed motors and the other a Hamptone. Also sporting a working Vibratone 30A # 326.
