Hammond Spring Reverb
« on: January 02, 2021, 01:51:33 PM »
Want to give away this old Hammond Spring Reverb.  It's large-about 3 foot long.  I think this is one of the first spring reverbs ever made.  I thought it would make a cool project, but I never got around to it.

You can have it if you pay shipping and your in the Continental US, which won't be cheap because of it's size.

Wow! Any historic background on this piece?

These are from DR-20 Tone cabinets. Late 40s I believe.

Bigger IS better?  :P
Why is it people love to believe and hate to know?

Hi Craig, can you please post more photos of this device? I find it very interesting and I am curious how it is built in detail. Thanks a lot! Cheers

I think that's right.  There's a "44" band written on the pickup, which I guessed meant 1944.  Several of the brass columns are supposed to be filled either mineral oil to dampen the springs.I

I'll post more pics tomorrow if a get the chance.

It might also be from a HR40 if it's supposed to be oil filled

The person I bought it from tried to ship it with oil in it!  What a mess!

I’ll pay for shipping to Dallas on this.
Whether you think you can or you think you can't, you're probably right.

Also, not to hijack this thread, but I just found the Hammond preamp and power amp (they are seperate) for this in my storage unit. I removed them from a dr40. If this is of any interest to anyone PM me. Okay sorry for the thread hijack  ;D

Wow,
this looks pretty awesome.

So is this from an organ?

There is a "locking" mechanism which will help from destroying the voice coil in shipping... make sure you lock it down before you send it off!

I have three of these and have had success hooking them up through a Radial Tank Driver. They are VERY long and a little boingy.... each one I have is considerably different... all unique and cool in their own way.

That one looks a little rusty... hopefully its still working!

Thanks for the heads up, EB.

Craig, not sure if you shipped yet or not, but this sounds like good advice.

Yes, the springs are "locked".  Got it shipped off earlier today.
