Moving the Hammond B3

The Hammond B3 organ is legendary for its unique sound. Pop, Blues, Jazz, Rock, Gospel ... all have incorporated that unique Hammond organ sound. Hammond organs have a unique sound because they are uniquely built organs. The early Hammond organs such as the B3, C3, and A100 series of organs produce their sound with a mechanical tone-wheel generator...not just a bunch of circuit boards. Moving a tone-wheel equipped Hammond organ requires special attention to prevent damage to the generator inside. Special provisions were made in the design of the organ to secure the tone-wheel generator during the moving process. Not locking down the generator risks breaking a multitude of very fine wires within the organ. Moving an organ or a piano requires not only strength (you can find strong folks anywhere to lift something) but the knowledge and skill to safely get your instrument from one location to another. From securing an instrument and its parts, to using the right equipment, PianoProsDFW will move your piano or organ with the skill you expect from a professional piano mover.
