    Congratulations! Those old Hammonds were something else. I suppose you know how to oil the tone generator?

    I love playing keyboards way more than the bass I started out with.

    I've never gotten to play with an actual Hammond just the KORG synths supposedly simulating the Hammond sound... all those knobs and buttons whee!

    Now if you could locate an armoire sized Moog to go with it!

    Actually I don't yet. I need to flip through the manual and get on that because it hasn't been oiled since 1961.

    Yeah I am getting way into keyboards lately. I bought a Korg Microsynth and that thing is so much fun. I gotta say though... this analog organ is a completely legit tone. So vintage....

    What's a moog?

    It's great that you have the manuals, they should show how and where to apply the oil.
    If you do decide to oil it you really should use only Hammond Generator Oil. You can still get it from Hammond or other places online.
    Most of those organs had a little clip somewhere inside the cabinet holding a tube of oil. Look around a bit, you might find that you have a few ounces of oil.
    By the way, if it is playing normally it probably doesn't really desperately NEED to be oiled, but if it hasn't been oiled since I was a toddler it could probably use it.
    If one of the tone wheels locks up you will know it pretty quick.

    Yeah it has a full tube of oil with it already. I still haven't taken the time to locate the tone wheels yet. It DOES sound great though. An oiling couldn't hurt at all though.

    Here's just a clip of me sort of mindlessly jamming on it for anyone interested. Sorry for the awful quality and awful organ skills.
