FDP Forum / Rock-it 88's - Keyboard Forum / Hammond Pedal Solo Unit - how it works

Here's a short explanation of how the Pedal Solo Unit works on the large Hammond "Concert" consoles (RT, RT-2, RT-3). These consoles have a full set of 32 bass pedals and a special chassis that produces 6 octaves of very bright tones. These tones can be mixed in with the normal bass pedal tones from the tonewheel generator. The bright tones allow for solos and carrying the melody on the bass pedals.

I made this video for another forum but I thought some folks here might also be interested.
