Hammond M-3 Organ - $500 (Fort Worth)

Vintage 1960 Hammond M3 tonewheel organ. This organ is in good condition, and runs like a top! She is well oiled and ready to go. This Chicago built beast is affectionately known as the Baby B3, as it shares a very similar tonewheel and drawbar system as her big sisters, the B3 and C3. This is a Spinet organ, featuring a built in tube amp, with a single 12" alnico speaker. The M3 has been featured on may recordings often mistaken for the B3 - most famously many Stax recordings, including Green Onions. The M3 is a favorite of musicians looking for that classic Hammond sound, but don't have 5 grand to drop on a B3 or C3. It is also a favorite of studios due to its compact size compared to the larger console organs. The organ features two 44 note manuals, with 8 drawbars for each. There is a single octave of bass pedals, with a single drawbar. There is percussion for the upper manual, and built in vibrato/vibrato chorus which can get you close to a leslie feel. Unlike many M3's you see, this one is not missing the music stand, and includes the original bench. It also has the original warranty/owners registration papers. This organ is in very good shape, and runs great.
