 In contrast, the Hammond spinets (at least the M- series) all have constant resistance resistance wires. In the M-Series, all resistances are 16 ohms. (Sometimes the wires of of differing lengths, but their gauge is varied as well so that the total resistance is the same.) 
-Carsten Meyer has drawn up this chart showing the tapering on a console.  
- (I'm not quite sure _which_ console this is for --- the tapering varied between the various models, I think .)  
+Carsten Meyer has drawn up this chart showing the tapering on a B3 console compared to a spinet (M- or T-series). Remark by Carsten: I think tapering was not only made for "click reduction" and smooth sound, but also took care of differences in generator impedance (inner resistance). Therefore the "jump" in tapering wire resistance at notes with filter circuit
 Also MikeFulk has provided a scan of this tapering diagram.
