Question about Hammond SK1 Organ

Open Question

Hammond SK1 patches corrupted

I think I had just pressed the drawbar parts 'upper and lower' as required to change organs to vox, Farfisa,etc. Then most user and preset patches became screwed up with identical DB settings or no sounds other than a bell or short piano strike. Volumes also messed up. I restored an earlier gbackup and it seemd ok at the moment. What do you think?

SOURCE: i have 2 digital pianos

Ooften there is a setting for the pitch. Set it to A at 440 Hz which is usual standard. HOWEVER make sure it is really a pitch difference as the ear can be fooled by the "hammond" type sounds.

SOURCE: Hammond sk1 foot switch is set to toggle Leslie effect between fast and slow. How do I change it to act as damper sustain pedal or other function such as glide?

Thre is a sustain pedal jack next to the foot switch jack. The pedals used are different. The foot switch is a latching switch, the sustain pedal is a momentary.

My m3 makes no sound starts and runs perfect tubes are all lit


Sometimes people are fooled because some tubes have TWO heaters in them and you have to check that BOTH are lit. Your first thing is to get a schematic. Try the "Captain Foldback" site for Hammond schematics. You can find it with Google.

Take it to the store and have them test it... don't be surprised if there is a simple thing that has been overlooked. If it doesn't worked there, it needs to go in for servicing so that is the logical course to follow anyway.

It is probably so kind of interference from the rotary switches. It is in the shielding of the Hammond organ. You might try some aluminum foil around the unit certain areas at a time which will give you an idea if it will help and what areas need to be shielded. If that does the trick you install the aluminum foil shield inside the chassis. Hope that helps. Let me know..

I purchased a used Hammond Organ Aurora, Model 700, 710 C125 but the previous owner did not have the manual for it. I am looking for a manual so I know how and what to do to play it. I don't know what...


Try the organforum . com. There are a lot of Hammond people there. The model 700 is the base model and probably enough to get you started.
Also just get a organ music book as a lot of the vernacular is in those. Also check your library for organ books. OFTEN the user manuals aren't much use to learn the instrument.

Most organs will either have tabs or drawbars. These select the type of "voice" and often one selects more than one as a mix. Each keyboard is refered to as a "Manual". Most organs have foot pedals. Each of the manuals and the foot pedals will have a seperate set of tabs associated with them.

To get started, turn on the organ and press the expression pedal which controls the volume... experiment setting a few tabs or drawbars an play notes on the manuals. You will soon learn what controls what.

Note that some models of Hammond organs used rotating tone wheels and those require lubrication. Those that do, usually have a power switch labelled "start" and "Run". These organs are usually higher value and one should have them serviced before using.
