Hammond's Organs V.14
It all started when I pulled apart an
old Hammond transistor organ and started monkeying around testing parts
and whatnot. I developed a circuit around the components and found it
to be a super desirable mid-gain distortion. We, as of now, don't make
the pedals with the old parts, we are using new components. We tested
hard and tried a lot of options to ensure the same warmth and character
as the early Hammond's... the bonus is that the new components are less
noisy... which is good. Until I buy and destroy more organs, I'm
going to be building the Hammond's with new components.
Each batch of Hammond's I build
is a little different from the last. I keep saying I'm going to find a
perfect setup, but I never do...
This run of twelve Hammond's has the original clipping formula, the original "Gain" which is now the Drive, plus added true Gain and Body adjustments.
This run of Hammond's is also tuned to be able to handle 18 volts. Running this at 18 volts increases the clarity and headroom. You loose some of the classic Hammond's warmth, but it's a nice option.
Jacks: In on the right, Out on the Left
Drive. How hard the signal hits the transistors. This has the largest control over the intensity of the distortion. CCW Less Distortion. CW More Distortion.
G: Gain. Changes the sharpness of the distortion. CCW Woolier, CW Bitier.
B: Body. Controls the amount of low end in the circuit. CCW most compressed, heaviest sounds. CW for the brightest, cleanest sounds.
standard 9vlt jack, no wall wart included, no battery option, isolated power recommended.
