View Full Version : Hammond M3
05-01-2005, 07:34 PM
Hello I have a few M3s . One is in a cabinet that is too far gone. I have a Wurlitzer 950T that is really in nice shape and it has a leslie built in as well as a killer sound system. I have a fantasy which I am more sure that is what it is than not,,, but I would love love love to take the tone generator out of that Hammond and install it somehow in the Wurlitzer or in a cabinet and wire it to the Wurlitzer. and install the drawbars in the organ. Can you or has anyone successfully install one organ into another like combine two instruments in one console and make it look professional?? I love the sound of the Wurlitzer but also the M3 is awesome in it's own right,, I would love to combine the M3 with the Wurlitzer basically. any help or comments negative or positive would be greatly appreciated.. Thanks Scoob.
Good luck, and GOOD LUCK is the word for the day. dec

Scoob - I have been nice all night and my Happy Pill is starting to wear off so I will unlease some sarcasm, but honest constructive sarcasm I hope. If you like the sound of either a M-3 or a 950 Wurlitzer all I can say is you are way too easily satified! Talk about a lot of hard work for nothing. If you like to work on old organs and fix them up then overhaul an old Gulbransen K model Rialto, or if you MUST have drawbars then find a Rialto II and overhaul that (if it even needs it.) Then you will really have an old organ that plays and sounds like something. Happy hunting. :)

No worries, I have several organs, Baldwin Cinema II the last version. I have two Lowrey C500s a Thomas model 800 (terrible sound ) and the 950. I like the "look" of the 950 but it don't have enough real stops. too many "tricks" and what is it with that Orbit monophonic and only two octaves. I like the sound of the B3 don't have one but the M3 is a distant cousin and figure why not think of the idea. The work involved yeah too much, rather dedicate it to playing the instrument. one thing I don't like about the organ in general,, it is a fertile ground to start experimenting with instead of playing it (boy am I guilty there) Scob.
