Rare Vintage Hammond 102100 Analog Synthesizer

*Sold as-is! No Returns.*

Please ask any questions, and I’ll be upfront with answers.

One of the first commercially available monosynths from Hammond. All original, includes music stand. Mostly clean, mostly working, survivor from the mid-70’s.

There’s not too much info on these rare synths, but from what I can gather, there were less than a few hundred made, and it was with the help of the Japanese company that became Roland that this was put into production. Made in the USA.

This has lived much of its life atop an organ, and was only partially functional when I received it. I cleaned and removed the crumbling foam from the inside, and replaced a couple loose boards.

Overall, it’s a simple, unique, vintage-sounding synth. Thanks for looking!

Good News:
  • The Filter Section works! This is what makes the synth usable and unique. It sounds amazing, and surprisingly rich for a single oscillator.

  • All keys work.

  • All parts are original.

  • Push buttons of Filter Section work and engage when pressed.

  • Sliders function.

  • French Horn, Tuba, Sax, and Clarinet work.

  • It has been cleaned of foam and years of dust.

  • Excellent physical condition.

  • Includes plexiglass music stand.

Bad News:

  • Solar Echo works intermittently, but with pushing the footage buttons, it will come on. I’ll try to show this in the video.

  • Violin setting volume is too low to be usable.  

  • Sliders are a little resistant and could probably use a cleaning. I’ll leave that up to the new owner, as I rarely moved them anyway.

  • Small chunk of wood on the side taken out by the Hammond logo.

  • A small discolored area on the plastic around the Tuning slider.

  • Scratch on the metal face plate under the Filter Width section.

As with any vintage synth, it would be wise to plan on some upkeep in the future. I’ve tried, to the best of my knowledge and ability to describe the functionality. Please see the photos and the video!
