- 9 Upper drawbars, 8 Lower drawbars, 1 Pedal drawbar, Tabs for Presets, Harmonic Percussion, Reverb, Vibrato, Expression pedal.
The only thing I've noticed not working is one or two of the drawbars which are essentially primitive faders. A spray with DeoxIT contact cleaner will take care of that; I just haven’t had it opened up lately.
Modification – The audio signal between the preamp/expression pedal output and the power amp input has been routed to a normally closed ¼-inch phone jack mounted to the lower left front panel. With nothing plugged into the jack, the organ operates normally. With a ¼-inch TRS cable (included) plugged into the jack, the preamp output signal is routed externally as well as the power amp input. These are the send and return signals for a Motion Sound (Leslie-type) rotating loudspeaker system (shown in the photo but not included).
Instrument Dolly – With 3-1/2 inch rubber casters for moving the Hammond easily.
