Hammond A-405P Chapel Organ

Elegant, compact and versatile


Hammond A-405P Chapel Organ

The Consummate Performer seems to best describe this wonderful Hammond Organ.
As soon as you switch on this organ it is ready and waiting to be played. The superb quality of the Vase III drawbar system, Leslie, Vibrato, Chorus, pedal sustain and Extra Voices are all available and ready for your musical selection. There is an underlining simplicity about this instrument, meaning that there is no need to delve into complex menus or make constant reference with the owner's manual. The instrument is ready to play as soon as you turn on the power switch.
The Hammond A-405 has drawbars for all three manuals, Swell (Upper), Great (Lower) and Pedal. Add to this a selection of 880 magnificent Extra Voices and the possibilities for making wonderful music are limitless. 
The Extra Voices have been grouped into their respective musical instrument families, i.e. Piano, Brass, Woodwind, etc, and therefore making the selection process simple. Amongst this vast selection, the piano and guitar voices as a whole are magnificent, accordions are not only authentic but inspiring, the harmonica selection is wonderful and one of the best amongst current organ manufacturers, brass and brass solo, flute with trill, Wurlitzer electric pianos and acoustic bass simply amazing.
For those who like to tweak their sound, the ability to edit both the Tone Wheel and Leslie cabinet settings is extremely innovative and useful, expanding the creative possibilities of the instrument.
Another handy feature is the Zone function, uniquely innovative allowing you to not only split the upper and or lower keyboards, but also enabling you to overlap the Drawbars with the Extra Voices, thus ending up with three voice combinations or split points on one keyboard, i.e. only Drawbars, drawbars with an Extra Voice, and only the Extra Voice. This is an excellent feature that gives great dimension to the sound.
Once you have set-up your favourite registration, you can save this setting to one of the nine banks of nine presets. This means that there are a total of 81 presets available for saving your favourite registrations, without the need of using memory cards or disk drives. The presets allow you to save all aspects of the instrument, including enabling you to choose what part of the Combination Preset changes, as you select from the nine different presets within each bank. This means that you can change from one preset to another and choose to only change the sound(s) on the upper keyboard, whilst retaining the same settings and sounds in the lower and pedal keyboards. 
The Hammond A-405 features an exciting selection of 169 Rhythm Styles, which will truly inspire your playing imagination and have you rummaging through your print music looking for favourite music. The rhythm styles are divided up into 59 rhythm styles with no accompaniment and 115 rhythm styles with automatic accompaniment. All 169 rhythm styles have two variations, fill-in, introduction and ending.
The rhythm styles are not contrived and clinical. They have a distinctive live drumming feel and quality. Upon listening to the styles you will find that they do not suffer from the clinical sequencing feature called quantising. There is always a sense of the unknown when playing along with a selected Rhythm style, much like having a real drummer playing along side with you.
The Hammond A-405 has the capability of having a Compact Flash Card inserted into the front of the instrument, thus allowing you to expand the memory capacity of the organ.
Once you have filled up all your 81 presets, you can then proceed to save them to your Compact Flash Card and assign a file name to your presets. This means you will never be limited in saving all the fabulous sound and rhythm combinations that you create.
The Compact Flash Card function allows you to record your performance including all your registration changes and expression. With the simple touch of the record button you're immediately making a live recording of your own favourite performance. Once you have completed your recording the performance is automatically saved on your Compact Flash Card. You can choose to name your performance and then enjoy listening to yourself with the touch of the play button.
Please consider this The Hammond Organ Company incorporate the seven colours of the rainbow in their logo design. The correlation of Hammond and colour is ideal. Both the rainbow and musical scale have only seven colours and notes respectively. The possibilities that these colours and notes offer are infinite. The Hammond A-405 Organ colours your music.
