View Full Version : Another free organ thread...

I came across a free organ that I think I will take.? I am not sure what model it is and haven't seen it yet but have some model numbers...
1967 Model T-433
Has leslie cabinet, two rows of keyboards, no floor keys and a pedal.
Of course I am interested in the B3 sound but am wonding about this one. Any ideas or comments?

Unless you have an all-ready "B-sounding" organ, I would take it. A model T has the tonewheels, and a leslie cabinet is at least worth $100, so you cant loose anything but house space.

I just called up a I think it's the B100buyer or something like that and he said it was junk and sounded like ass, is that true? He said the T series were not cool but then mentioned something about 1975 which this is a '67 and according the the theatreorgan FAQ, the T's weren't even made until '68 (is it possible it's a very early model?)...
If it will sound mildly cool then I'm happy...!

Been searching and reading, I did a few searches for "T433" & "T-433" and didn't come up with much. I started reading abut T-400's and T-422s, the good news is they are not in the "worse organs ever" thread or in the "best organ ever" thread. I pretty much play and/or try to play jazz oriented "funk" I guess you would call it. Herbie Hancock, Chick Corea, etc are my largest influences, period, even though I am a bass player. If I could acquire a cool sounding organ then that would be great but I don't want to drive down there and move this thing around and acquire a piece of junk if that is what it is, a piece of junk. But it is complete, leslie and all... For what it's worth...

OK I picked it up... Haven't really had the time to mess around with it but it is neat. The "rythym" functions sure are kind of funky. Can't say much for the tone sounds from the keys but I only got to play with a coupld settings. But I look forward to checking it out...!

If you can forget about the "rythym" unit, I can tell you how to make that organ sound real great (concidering what it sounds like now). Part of the problem with the sound is the fact that it is all transistorized. There is a guy in Germany that sells a tube preamp. You can make that organ sound warm and funky (dirty) for just a cheap price($125). You can change the sound to fit your likins. I've got a T-594 which is just a newer model, same generators and amps but I've changed my preamp to a tube and ohhhhhhh what a difference!!!!! Just my 2 cents worth. Jer

Very interested, this is exactly the info I am looking for...

OK, I found what you were talking about..!
My old question is most of this applies to the T100 and T200 and T500. Are they actually pretty close? I am actually getting kind of excited here...!

I am a nerd but this took me all day to find on the internet! HEre is a great review site for the T series...

I own one of these, a T-443 I believe is the model of mine. How come nobody ever offers me things like that for free? Nothing wrong with this organ. Find a series 10 tone cabinet for extra loudness. also find this site:
it will direct you to a site with modifications for the "T"
If you don't like the organ, sell me parts from it!
