Meet the Other Hammond

She may not be a B3, but our new Hammond H-143 is no less beautiful. We have officially inherited our first 500 pound beast of an instrument. She got no love on Craig’s List and needed a new home. What can we say, we’re suckers for a pretty face. No we don’t have the matching Leslie amp (yet) so right now this beauty is more eye candy than keyboard crack.

However she is available for glamour shots, dance parties, Halloween spectaculars, film appearances, and the occasional Christmas card photo.  We would like to thank Will Kahn over at Paradise Recording for making our dream of owning our first kind of  cool, campy piece of furniture that you can play come true.

We've also got nothing but love for Butch Rider over at Terrapin Designs whose Hammond expertise and consultation has already taken the sound to beautiful new heights.  Contact him at
