(back) Subject: ultra-cheap Hammond for sale From: JCarington@aol.com Date: Sun, 6 Dec 1998 11:21:06 EST   I just HAVE TO get rid of one of my organs.   I have a mint little Hammond E-312 tonewheel console. 61 keys x 2, 25 radial pedals, drawbars, tab presets, reiterate etc. 5-pin PR socket on the back. It plays perfectly. Have original owner's manual, too.   I'd like $300 cash or whatever. Make me an offer. I have no fantasies about its value. Otherwise I'll donate it to a church or tax-exempt organization at X-mas time.   I am about 45 minutes from Chicago. It may not be a B3 or C3, but it sounds similar, works the same, and will cost you a lot less if you need a practice organ.   Put "I WANT THAT HAMMOND" in the Subject box if you are interested.   Thanks!   John Carington Chesterton, Indiana

He was active in the AGO for many years. I met him when he came up to the console after service one day and said "I'm a retired organist, and I've just moved into the area and am joining this church. Do you ever need a substitute?" Golden words!   Paul Opel   Bennington Banner, Nov. 25   John W.
