Would you help me ID this organ?

Post by pablotf » Fri Jan 11, 2008 10:50 am

Listed for sale locally without any helpful description other than "it works." I haven't been able to get hold of the owner yet. So, I've been checking photos of several Hammond, Wurlitzer, Baldwin, etc. models to see if I find a match. Nothing so far. Well, at least I know it's not a B3. The picture sucks, but can anyone identify it?

Thanks!

Could be a Hammond Model T... Are there drum beats?

I don't know. Just got off the phone with the guy. He doesn't even know the brand/model and was away from his house so he couldn't go check. I'll probably go take a look at it this weekend.

The only model you didn't list that I can think of would be a Lowry. I don't know -- it's what the guy from steppenwolf used to play. I was playing one a while ago -- it has a built in leslie and, unlike a hammond, no drawbars.

Come to think of it, I can't see the picture very well -- but I don't see any drawbars -- that might rule out some models (?).

believe it or not, ElectroVoice made organs for awhile there, but stopped sometime in the 1960s.

just a thought.

Whew -

I was kinda nervous what might be waiting behind this link.

I recently saw a local Craigslist posting that said:

Organ left behind by Ex - make offer!

I'm thinking that guy should have gotten a better lawyer if she got his organ...

I have a Lowery and a Thomas of that basic dual manual style. Your pic looks like neither.

It does appear to have a Leslie inside it though. See that grill cloth port on the left side? Pretty dead giveaway of a side throw Leslie. Over the pedal board was the most typical place to locate one. If you're lucky it's a two speed model. I've got a single speed too, but the 2 speed ones are cooler...
I thought this club was for musicians. Who let the drummer in here??

If I had to bet just on appearance from that one picture, I'd say it's a Conn organ.
