Awesome. Church Lady would love it!
There's some stuff on Youtube where Booker T. Jones shows how to play some of his signature licks.
Key think to remember on organ is to keep it simple. It's not a piano, it has no dynamics apart from what you can do with your right foot. Simple intervals and triads can add a lot of texture to a song. You'll spend most of your time in the top two octaves of the keyboard.
The classic starting point drawbar setting for a Jimmy Smith or Booker T type tone is 888800000. "Whiter Shade of Pale" is 688600000 or 688600101.
TONS of info on the Web for oiling and maintaining these. You might do a bit of maintenance so nothing siezes or breaks.
Cool thing to have in the house! I did a small repair on a similar one a few years ago in a local church, sounded great and I can hardly play. Speaker cab was huge, does yours have the pearl necklace reverb?
Na. This one has an oil can reverb
A Celestion in a Hammond tone cabinet?
Yes, G12 model. There's actually two of them, you can just see the magnet of the 2nd one hanging down from the top right, 2x15'' and 2x12''.
Most wives would consider selling their husbands for a bigger organ.
It might well be vintage but BC? Sorry, it's gotta be AD.
They will never make these again. They make literal tons of guitar amps.
I'm usually against cannibalizing Hammond gear, but I'd build a Bluesbreaker combo around those two Celestions in a heartbeat. Put a pair of Italian Jensens in the tone cabinet and no one would be the wiser.
Wow, that's not one of the small ones. Please dont scrap it!
Probably needs to be oiled, lots of info on the internet. Hammond oil is preferred, but air tool oil, or sewing machine oil will do in a pinch. A highly refined oil is needed, that won't turn into goo. Hammonds sound so good, even minimal playing skills can be very satisfying. I know this from personal experience.
