Nice Kit!
Funny you mention your B3. My good friend an I were just ripping some old Deep Purple tunes TODAY and reminiscing about Jon Lord's classic B3 - C3 rock organ tone. That was such a great sound!

Congrats!! (:

Seeing that we appear to be comparing our organs ;-0

I've got a C3 - a B3 with 'modesty panels' (solid sides and back so you can't look up the organist's skirt).

Also a PR40 and L122, which can both go at the same time off the C3's twin-output preamp..

Nothing harder to move than a c3.
At least a b3 has places to hold on to.
We picked up the a100 in a snowstorm yesterday.
My back is singing a sad tune this morning . . .

I've got piano carriers for mine as you can see in this picture.

It's actually a 1952 Hammond B2 that has been fitted with Trek II percussion (which is dangling down under the right side) I also have a direct out which goes straight into an amp for that "John Lord" sound (God rest his soul).

I haven't fired it up in over 10 years.

Need to spin up those tonewheels every year or so -- just like your old hard drives.
Check the tonewheel oil and lube the starter motor and pinion gear before firing it up -- some didn't have a lube point on the starter motor.

The B2, like the BV / Trek2 I carried on the road throughout the seventies had a darker sound than the B3; but with the Trek it sounded great through the 147.
