    If by "real" you mean "with actual tonewheels inside," I would guess it's probably the LP-100/Porta-B.

      And that's not "small" !

      BTW, there are more possibilities than tonewheel vs samples. There is analog modeling, and digital modeling. Most modern clones use a combination of both methods. One of the best clones is VB3, which I believe uses no samples.

      "Real" could also mean "legally permitted to use the Hammond trademark", which applies to any Hammond/Suzuki product, all of which are digital clones.

      The clones are really quite good now. IMHO, there's a much bigger difference between a real Leslie speaker and its electronic emulators than between Hammond organs and its emulators.

        There are lots of clones and modeled organs and sampled ones that sound better than the cheaper real Hammonds. To get fabulous real-sounding B3 type rig, I think if you hooked up a real leslie to a Hammond XK3 (single manual, digital, lightweight) you'd have the full-on sound weighing in about as light as it gets.

          The new SK-1 is the smallest Hammond branded organ yet. It's only 15 pounds, wicked light.

              I thought Chester Thompson was a drummer...

              Too many keyboards, not enough music.

                  None of them.

                  But if you must have a real one, a chopped spinet might weigh in around 200 pounds.



                  And don't forget to add 140 more pounds for the Leslie.

                        The smallest real Hammond worth playing is the M-3. Case closed.

                        edit: the chopped hammond in the pic above is an M-3.

                          Sure, if that's what you want.

                          But, do the world a favor and chop an A-102 instead. It's a shame to saw up an actual B or C cabinet.
