Customers' Rigs: The London Jazz Organ

This 1961-1962 Hammond C3 and Leslie 147 has been played by some of the biggest names in organ jazz, including Jimmy Smith (!), Big John Patton, Reuben Wilson. Cory Henry, Dr Lonnie Smith, Doug Carn, Brian Auger, Delvon Lamarr, Kyle Kohler, Brian Charette, Adam Scone, Ike Stubblefield and James Taylor and is the go-to rig for live London shows.

Throughout the winter and spring 2019-2020 we have carried out some maintenance work at the request of the owner; on the C3 some wiring, the addition of an active EQ, replacement key and most recently a scanner service which means the chorus now sounds better than ever. The Leslie also had it's motor stacks tweaked for silent operation and a drop of oil.
