Hammond Limited Edition Porta-B Dual Manual Organ
Hammond revisits their vintage days with the new Limited-Edition "Porta-B." It looks like power, sounds like power, and brings a vintage experience home for any musician lucky enough to stand before it. It perfectly recalls the "chopped" Hammond we all remember.
Under the hood and beneath the twin-61 note square-front ("waterfall") manuals, the VASE III engine is tried and true, with 3 sets of Drawbars (Upper/Lower/Pedal). Reverse-color preset keys, vibrato/chorus, and touch-response percussion are just as you'll find in a vintage Hammond. It whispers, it screams, and hits all points in-between, Just as a "real" Hammond should.
A hi-def onboard Digital provides the vital "other half" of the vintage tonality. For those who wish to use a Leslie Cabinet, the 11-pin hookup is "right there," with a separate volume control within easy reach.
Perhaps the greatest surprise is the on-board full-range sound system that allows the Porta-B to speak on its own. Three 50- watt RMS amplifiers drive two 6" speakers and a 10' woofer, making rehearsals and practicing easier. The volume of the onboard system can be easily controlled by a rotary knob. You can even turn it all the way off if you wish.
You won't need any pieces of pipe, as the optional metal stand puts the Porta-B at the same playing height as a B-3. Although the Porta-B has the prominent "heft" of vintage "chop jobs," it's still nowhere near the weight of the original. Your roadies shouldn't complain - at least not as much.
In short, it's a true Hammond with all the modern features in a vintage costume. You'll also be amazed at the modest price for this collectible classic. This "Porta-B" is a Limited Edition. Only a limited number will be made, and when those are gone, they're gone.
