INTRODUCING THE A-162 | Hammond USA - ON THEIR 80th ANNIVERSARY, HAMMOND ORGAN RE-IMAGINES THE CLASSIC “A-100” Popular model retains the legendary sound at a budget price While the HAMMOND B-3 remains the world standard for Electronic Organs, its “little brother”, the model A-100, has its devotees as well. HAMMOND USA announces the release of the A-162, inspired by the original, which was released in 1960. The classic A-100 was a self-contained instrument needing no external speakers, providing the inimitable Hammond tone in a compact “footprint”, having all the features of the Hammond flagship, at a more modest price. The New Model A-162 continues that tradition. Using the same VASE III Tonal “Engine” as their top-of-the-line B-3mkII, the new A-162 gives all the power and sound expected from a Hammond, with the familiar reverse-key presets, Touch-Response Percussion, Chorus-Vibrato, and twin waterfall keyboards with 25-note pedalboard. The new A-162 features a powerful 150-watt onboard sound system with a compliment of five heavy duty speakers, one of which is a 15” woofer for rich pedal/bass tones. This system even surpasses the beloved antique A-100 with the inclusion of a state-of-the-art Digital Leslie™, a benefit not found on the original. The option remains, however, to attach a physical Leslie speaker to expand the tonal range, if necessary. The demand for the “vintage” Hammond Organ sound remains high, but the number of instruments from the 50’s and 60’s are rapidly diminishing, Hammond has mined its 80 year history to produce instruments that look, sound and perform like their beloved models, bypassing the complex mechanical apparatus of the past, executing their exact functions in the digital realm. This modern approach provides not only stability and confidence, but allows for precise control and extensive customization and adaptability. You can now “dial in” all the unique characteristics and intangibles that you desire in a Hammond Organ and Leslie. You can have the “A-100” you’ve always wanted. Its small “footprint” is perfect for smaller Churches, Chapels, Schools, Homes and Studios, and its affordable price is in everyone’s budget. The classic A-100 brought the Hammond magic to a wider audience, and the same spirit is alive in the technologically advanced A-162, providing all the stirring and traditional music Hammond is famous for. For 80 years, Hammond is the SOUND, the SOUL, the ONE!!
