This organ is well oiled and ready to go. This Chicago built beast shares a very similar tonewheel and drawbar system as her big sister, the B3. Though it is most similar to the M-100, but with a few less features.
It is a Spinet organ, featuring a built in tube amp with a two 12" speakers. Small spinet Hammonds such as these are a favorite of musicians looking for that classic Hammond sound, but don't have 10 grand to drop on a B3 or C3. It is also a favorite of smaller studios due to its compact size and lesser cost compared to the larger console organs like the B3 or C3. The L series organs were most notably used by Keith Emerson for much of his early career.
This organ features two 44 note manuals: 7 drawbars for the lower, and 9 for the upper, and a 13 note pedal bass with a single drawbar. The lower manual features 1 preset, and the upper has 3. There is percussion for the upper manual, and built in vibrato/vibrato chorus on both manuals. Unlike many organs you'll see, this one is not missing the music stand or bench. Overall this organ is in very good condition and runs well. Cosmetically it's in solid shape considering its age. Come by and play this beast - you'll fall in love!
