    "dead studio audience" !!! Now I'll crack up every time I hear an announcer say "this program was filmed before a live studio audience."

    Philip,

    At least we didn't film in front of a "dead studio audience!"

    Frequently? You make it sound like there is normally mean and surly people! Don't scare him off!
    Anyways, welcome and I hope to see your thoughts and opinions on the forum!

    No need. You should be good once you find a tension that works. Personally, I wouldn't change it again until it doesn't work. The major difference for mine is that the Leslie spins up slower in the Winter than Summer. I'm actually OK with that.

    I've found that the belt on my Lowrey's Leslie (DSO-1) changes with the seasons. Dry humidity in the Winter and cold temperatures can cause the belt to be tighter, while the humid Summer and warm weather can cause the belt to be looser.

    Thanks for the tip - have to remember to slacken it off later in the year.

    Thank you all for your kind welcomes. I will be moving house this summer, so intend to post a picture of the organ when it's settled in the new home. I recently had a problem with the Leslie making a dreadful racket. I'm no expert, but I felt that the drive belt was a bit loose, so I tightened it up, and now the Leslie's spinning away as it should.
    While round the back I found the notice: "Oil -" and an arrow. I tried squirting a bit of oil in, but I think I was supposed to actually take the Leslie out for that!

    James,

    I thought I had already sent a welcome message, but I guess I'm imagining things in my old age. In any event, welcome to the Forum! You'll find very helpful people here, and of course, we always look for your contributions as well. I've learned so much from others' questions, I wish I could count the hundreds of things I have learned here.

    Again, welcome, and I look forward to your contributions.

    Michael

    An additional Welcome!

    The forum is as others have said above, but I'll add that there is much experience and a good amount of wisdom among the forum members. While I used the member's knowledge to help me decide which organ to buy, I've found that I'm still exploring and learning in the various forum channels here. Be sure to look into the other channels beyond your "specific organ type" or "favorite" ones because you'll find helpful and/or interesting information you didn't know you were looking for!

    Hello James and welcome to this Forum. You will find it is frequented by a bunch of jolly nice people. I have both the GAK25 and the GAH25-3. They are awesome organs with beautiful sound and loud capabilities. Old and heavy but worth having.

    Again, welcome

    Nico

    Hello fellow organists!
    I found this forum, so I joined it.
    I have a Lowrey GAK25H-1, which I've had about 12 years.

    I look forward to "meeting" other members.
