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 share 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" field coil 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. There are some marks in the cabinet, but overall this organ is in very good cosmetic shape for its age. Includes the original bench. No music stand.
We performed a lower foldback mod on the lower manual. This greatly increases the bass response in the left hand, tricking your ear into hearing it an octave lower. There is also a 1/4" line out mod, though this was already on the organ when we acquired it.
