Hammond A100 with Leslie 145

The Hammond A100 is the living room brother of the famous B3. It also has its own speakers and reverb. This one’s from 1964  and its mated with a rebuild Leslie 145. The outside looks good, but is not mint.  There’s some blemishes. Both have a full package 4 rebuild and an OFF position for the Leslie motors. 


Combined with a beautiful Leslie 145 this is a real killer combi! The following has been done to to ensure perfect functionality:


Hammond A100
– Drawbarcontacts cleaned and lubed, to ensure excellent contact and eliminate scratsching noises.
– New tubes AO28 preamp and AO35 poweramp (more output, brilliance, more percussion bite and less hiss/hum))
– Replacement of some essensial resistors, capacitors and ALL electrolyt capacitors (less noise/hum and tighter bass) in both amps
– New keyfelts to minimize key noises (upstop and downstop), black keyfelts are repositioned to minimize key noises
– Minimize sideway keyplay, to eliminate the click and clack noises when sliding over the keys.
– Has newer type ‘red cap’s’ capacitors on the tonewheel generator installed, that will ensure that the original tonewheel curve from tone 1 to 91 is maintained. This is an essential parts of the Hammond sound.
– Has the newer ‘red cap’s’  vibrato line capacitors installed that will maintain original vibrato curve
– Percussion volume and vibrato brilliance modification to balance different sound options

Leslie 145
– Mechanical rebuild: all new grommets for motors and rotors, new O-rings and new rotor bearings. Rebuild of all four motors which included complete disassembly, cleaning, lubing and adjustment of all moving parts. This will ensure silent and effecient operation with the fastest acceleration and deacceleration times.

– Installation solid state Trek II relais, to eleminate the clicking and popping noises when switching speeds.
– Internal and exptenal cleaning


Of course the tonewheelgenerator will be oiled and everything works as it should. Percussion, vibrato, presets, presets, pedals, all tonewheels, drawbars. Everything has been gone through. It will function the way you expect from a Hammond organ. Original bench and pedals are included as well.
