Early 1956 B3 with a 22H Leslie updated to a full 122 two speed and a JR-20 Hammond tone cabinet.

A very nice late 1972 B3 with a two speed 122 Leslie speaker.

#F- 51.1956 Holy Grail B3
Serial Number - 60493
Presenting the crème d la crème of over 800 Hammonds I have owned.
A 1956 B3 with its JR-20 Hammond Tone Cabinet and a 21H Leslie Speaker. I have installed a 2 speed kit in the 21H Leslie.
The organ came from an estate where apparently nobody knew who to play the organ as I cannot find evidence of ANY wear on it!
This is the HOLY GRAIL for the B3's! As close to a "ten" you will ever see.
Sounds and plays and looks just as if it was sitting the Hammond Dealers showroom in 1956!!
1959 B3 with Leslie and tone
Serial Number - 78566
1959 B3 with 147 two speed Leslie and a PR-40 Hammond tone cabinet.
One owner, played very little during its life. Beautiful keys, drawbars, insides are spotless. Pedals do not have a mark on them!
The pieces have lightened up over the years. The original factory lacquer finish is still nice and smooth, just lighter in color. Minor scratches, still stunning!
Nice to have the original factory papers.
This trio is very powerful!!!

1955 PRO B3 with Leslie and sub
Serial Number - 58936
My personal stage B3:
Best of all worlds. This B3 has magnificent stage presence and the power and sound is unmatched.
NOTHING EQUALS THE LOOK AND SOUND OF A VINTAGE B3/LESIE ON OR OFF STAGE!! You can go anywhere with her: Jimmy Smith, McGriff, Chester Thompson. Grand Funk Railroad, Deep Purple, etc. etc. All the cool options: 150 watt powered Sub woofer, if you want to shake the walls with bass and mids, knife cutting highs for the percussion attacks, all variable to your individual taste with a tube driven EQ booster. State of the art light touch foot sidekick Leslie switching that works with or without the cool l.e.d hand Leslie control. Super cool hanging Hammond/Leslie lighted signs. Detachable light for drawbars and keys for those cool dark effect stage lighting gigs. If you do not want to kick pedals, set her up with the comfortable backrest cushioned swivel seat. Full 147 two speed Leslie with the sweet original V21 Jensen driver, fresh reconed Jensen P15L woofer, sweet custom frequency splitter that makes the mids and lower frequencies accent that wonderful who, who classic sound effect when the Leslie is switched from choral to tremolo, new 147 amplifier with bass boost modification.
Top rotor and bottom drum miked with two Shure 57's on permanent microphone mounts. Just plug your hi and low feed into the board.
This is as good as it can get.
You can make her whisper or drive the bass and guitar player off the stage.
