The Hammond HX 100

A relatively unheard of Hammond Console, which featured alongside the Hammond X66 and X77, electronically it is similar to the H100 series but in an X66 cabinet, and was thought to be better suited to the glitzy social club/ cinema market than the Church market of the Hammond B3 C3 etc or the home market of the A100. The organ was supplied new with two tone cabinets (D10 50 watts transistor plus 'echo' cabinet) This is one AWESOME looking Hammond, and the whole setup is HUGE!!!
