The ELB-1A adds an INSTRUMENT LEVEL effects loop to allow the use of effects devices on either the upper or lower manual of many Hammond organ models. The ELB-1A contains an active buffer circuit which prevents the effects device from loading down the organ signal. Two ELB-1A units can be used to provide an effects loop on each manual.
Instrument Level effects devices include guitar pedals and other effects devices intended to be placed between an instrument and amplifier. Line Level effects devices are typically rack-mounted and are designed to accept a higher signal level than instrument level effects devices. To use line level effects devices, use the SSP-3A pre-amp and the ELB-3A option.
COMPATIBLE WITH THE FOLLOWING HAMMOND ORGAN MODELS:
A-100, B-2, C-2, B-3, C-3, D-100, M-3, M-100, RT-2, RT-3
For those wondering why anyone would want to add an effects device to their Hammond...... the standard reasons include: musical expression, curiosity, or wanting to duplicate a sound heard on a recording. But the one reason almost all ELB-1A users report to us is..... it's just FUN!
