Hammond Organs are worth to be restored!!
Restoration not only means that the Hammond Organ will be cleaned, the
Organ will be nearly as new. Everything that can degrade will be cleaned,
repaired or replaced. That goes for the busbars, Gui-Foam (!!), Keys and Key contacts,
Key-combs, Felt, Oil wicks, Capacitors, Tubes, Scanner, Soldering contacts,
Pedal Felt, Pedal contacts, Amplifiers, Electrical Hardware like mains entry, fuses, switches, connectors etc, the Housing etc. etc.
After this session the organ looks quite new and sounds
and plays as new. Smooth gliding keys, a nice, good keyclick and percussion,
warm Vibrato, smooth no noisy drawbars and for all, a good sound.
A Hammond Organ is as new if
is on it!
Restoration is not an easy job. It requires knowledge, precision, and
most of all lots of patience!!
Restoration takes 6 to 7 succesive days of work. First
carefully taking the organ apart, then cleaning, checking, repairing and
restoring all separated parts. The tonewheel generator will be checked/adjusted
for correct tone levels as originally indicated by the Hammond factory.
Then putting everything together creating new soldering joints, checking
Gui-Foam (goes for all models of the mid 60's till end of production) will be removed
and all by gui-foam affected wires will be replaced.
The number of affected wires is unpredictable, therefore this activity is very difficult to plan.
This means that Gui-Foam removal is always seperately calculated afterwards!
