1959 Hammond B3 Organ with full pedals; PR20 Tone cabinet, Q40 Tone cabinet, and Leslie 122 w. brand new amp - all in excellent condition - $15,000 OBO. Will deliver within 250 miles of Des Moines.

This 1959 Hammond B3 and PR20 tone cabinet was purchased new by the funeral home that my uncle directed in northern Iowa. The Q40 tone cabinet and extra-long cable were likely added some time later. All spent their entire lives in the funeral home until I purchased and moved them to Des Moines.

All equipment serviced by Omega Organ & Audio (based in Spencer, Iowa). Omega replaced one missing Jensen speaker in PR20 tone cabinet with vintage model. Also purchased a reconditioned Leslie 122 with brand new amp (built to vintage 122 specs by Lonnie Smith in Indiana); and had the Leslie switch installed on the B3 by Omega. Omega said this is the most pristine B-3 they've ever seen.

With all speakers connected, this ensemble has incredible bass and can be LOUD! Would be a great ensemble for a church or other setting where one tone cabinet could be placed away from the organ. I have photos and a short video of Iowa B3 master Sam Salamone playing this B3.
