Novachord Restoration Project

Novachord Restoration Project.

A pretty unreal restoration process of a Hammond Novachord from 1940. I was turned onto this page by grobbingthistle over at fangsandarrows.com, so let me send some thanks that way. It’s an incredibly cool project and instrument. Who knew there were all-tube synths being made back in 1938?? Not me.

It sounds incredible. About as “big” as I’ve ever heard and sooooo open. It took me a long time to understand tubes, only developed an ear for the sound in the past couple of years. Sure wish I hadn’t waited that long. An appreciation of warmed up tubes and that clean open sound… so nice. One of my favorite things to hear at this point. Anyways, check this bad boy out.
