News, Reviews and Advice for the Modern Hammond Organ Player

Welcome to Hammond For Hire

My name is Nick and I’ve been a Hammond organ player for three quarters of my life. I’m based in the British Midlands and am fascinated and/or obsessed (depending upon your viewpoint) by all things Hammond. Over the last three decades, I’ve worked my way up through many of the best organ clones to arrive at my current setup of a Hammond XK-Pro rig for touring and a 1960 Hammond C3 organ for recording. I am a UK endorsee for Lounsberry pedals USA and use their amazing Organ Grinder pedal through either a Leslie 122 or 145.

I’m a busy musician and session player, previous winner of Hammond USA’s international “Riff Off” championship and the founder of the online Jon Lord Appreciation Society which now has more than 5,500 members. Read more about me here.
