After this session the organ looks quite new and sounds and plays as new. Smooth gliding keys, a nice, good keyclick and percussion, warm Vibrato, smooth no noisy drawbars and for all, a good sound. Restoration is not an easy job. It requires knowledge, precision, and most of all lots of patience.
Restoration takes 7 to 9 succesive days of work. First carefully taking the organ apart, then cleaning, checking, repairing and restoring all separated parts. The tonewheel generator will be checked/adjusted for correct tone levels as originally indicated by the Hammond factory. Then putting everything together creating new soldering joints, checking wires etc. Gui-Foam (goes for all models of the mid 60's till end of production) will be removed and all by gui-foam affected wires will be replaced. The number of affected wires is unpredictable, therefore this activity is very difficult to plan. This means that Gui-Foam removal is always seperately calculated afterwards!
