  • RE: Hohner ORT100 Ratary Cab problem



    Greetings all!</p>

    I am a newbie here so firstly hello.</p>

    I am fairly new to organs as an instrument. I am primarily a synth player but have recently purchased a Nord Electro 3 to use on an album project I'm working on and am getting more and more into the Organ as time progresses. I'll get to my Question:</p>

    I recently purchased a HOHNER ORT100 rotary cab. On first inspection, all was well and it sounded great. I tried it out with a different footswitch to the one I was given when I eventually purchased it. Basicaly, the footswitch I have only has one switch for fast/slow selection, there is no on/off switch.</p>

    In fast mode all is well but in slow mode, the bass rotator ceases to rotate so most of the effect is lost. Is this functioning correctly or is it a problem with the footswitch wiring? I am no electronics expert and have little experience with wiring and so on.</p>

    Does anyone here have any experience with this cabinet and if so can you shed any light on the problem?</p>

    Any help will be greatly appreciated.</p>

    Many thanks,</p>

    Liam.

      Hi Jussi,</p>

      Thanks for your reply.</p>

      I saw that schematic online too and was intimidated by it to be honest but I will have a lok and see if there's an obvious sitch in there somewhere. If you are experienced with such things, if you get the time to have a look that would be great.</p>

      </p>

      Cheers,</p>

          I have had this on a Leslie 710. If the motor configuration is similar it may be a slack belt or time for a motor overhaul. Sometimes they can be a bit intermittent especially if not used for a long time.</P>


          Mind you when I heard the rotosonic spinning on the 710 I disconnected it again ;)</P>


          Cheers</P>

            Pardon my ignorance but what`s a rotosonic?</p>

              Instead of a nice downward firing 15" speaker into a wooden rotor, the Rotosonic was a plywood drum (heavy) with a small oval speaker on the side of it. It took ages to adjust to speed changes compared with the 5-9secs on a classic Leslie and had a theatre organ style to it which isn't my thing. A couple of months later a Leslie 122 came up for £500 GBP and that replaced it.</P>
