Congrats to this "Schnaeppchen" , TK. .
There was the right man at the right place at the right time, it seems.
Are you successful with restaurating the old lady ?
I ask myself about the difference of a B3 and this E 100. Can you explain it an "organ-layman", please?

The difference between B3 and E100
well purists say that a Hammond is not a Hammond when it has not more than one power-on-switch.
B3, A100 and similar models need two switches to power up motor and voltage. This E100 has only ONE power switch. This starts everything in the organ even the motor of the tone wheel generator.

B3 models have this special percussion effects on the upper manual.
E100 has percussion effects too but they are quite different.
(I have an instruction for changing these percussions to make them B3 like)

B3 has a knob for vibrato and chorus effects.
E100 has some tounge switches to do the same behaviour on vibrato and chorus

B3 models have 10 presets for each keyboard (upper and lower).
E100 has only three presets.

Both models have drawbars.

The E100 has an electronic cymbal and brush generator which can be activated for the lower manual. Sounds like a cheap snare drum. B3 don't have it.
E100 has an electronic repetition unit for the percussion signals

What they have is this inimitable click when you press or release a key and the leakage of tones comming through when you play chords. Once this was a construction fault. But this is exactly what Hammond lovers want to hear. All is based on the tone wheel generator and their divider units.

There are some more other differences in the construction between the models.


I am just playing around with that lady and I will record some videos soon. The motor starts very smoothly now and the tone wheel generator works very quiet. It's great fun to play with it.

Thank you, Carsten for this excellent explanation.
As an "organ-jerk" I see a bit clearer now.
