Aeolian Hammond BA Player Organ

A little demo. the restorer has re-leathered all the primary and secondary pneumatics, and replaced all the rubber tubing to the tracker bar and keying pneumatics, as well as rebuilding the vacuum bellow motor. It still needs a few fine adjustments but it seems to work fairly well!

The Hammond section was also totally restored with new capacitors and resistors, all cloth power wiring was replaced, and the CX-20 cabinet has received the same treatment.

Hi there I have played from the age of 13 and all my music is played in a sort of dance tempo style. Have worked in nearly all the North East clubs over the years. That gave me a good grounding. Cheers.
