Hammond X77 Owners Corner
Finally, after all the complaining about the X77 and its design problems...someone is actually offering some HELP!!
Hi there, I own a Pre 1969 X77 with X77L tone cabinet, and after having owned many other Hammonds, I am here to tell you that this is the last of the great Hammond tonewheel organs that with some modification, can ACTUALLY OUT PERFORM THe IMMORTAL B3!!!!
Points to consider:
-This instrument looks Gorgeous (Funky...not like a church organ) in your living room.
-X77 contains MODERN electronic components, so re-capping etc is not required.
-X77 is ALL solid state, so electronic parts are easy to get.
-X77L leslie tone cabinet is a 200 watt 4 channel beast!
-No "Gooey Foam Problem" like many of the 60's Hammonds had.
-Console comes appart easilly, and the many circuit boards are easy to get at.
-X77 has the funky B3 percussion built in...but needs an adjustment to tighten it up.
-ALL HUMM and FIREWORKS problems can be TOTALLY ELLIMINATED!
-Learn how to ADD the ORIGIONAL Hammond B3 vibrato scanner (C3 chorus) to the X77.
-Learn how to mofify leslie X77L to function like model 122 on steroids!
Should there be enough interest in this I will provide a website with MP3s to demonstrate EXACTLY how EXCITING this instrument can be
