  • Leslie speaker add on to T524



    I know i don't need another mystery item to worry about but ocasionally Leslie speakers sow up for a real good price. Will the T524 support one and if so what model Leslie would work.</P>


    Thanks,</P>

    You can fit any model you like as long as you have the right connection kit. As a T500 has a 9 pin socket the intended speaker is the 710 two channel speaker which is plug and play with no extra kit.</P>


    Cheers</P>

      AndyG tells me they used to sell t500s standard with 760s and no modifications.

        760 - or any standard 9-pin leslie - will run straight off the T500, but it doesn't quite have the 'balls' of the 710, which suits the T500 well. But you can't really beat a 145 or 147 on it - shame about the prices!</p>

        Using a kit for the 760 on a T500 also lets you mix the two leslies -internal and external - together at different speeds and puts the speed shift right under the palm of your left hand (if you mount the 1/2 moon a little further to the right than usual).</p>

        It's not what you play. It's not how you play. It's the fact that you're playing that counts.

            Hmm, </p>

            the more I read what you guys post about these T's (and what Brendon has done to his) the more I like their possibilities.</p>

            I would imagine that they must sound quite good with a tube Leslie as well.

              You're so right Bob! Wouldn't it be nice?</p>

              Yesterday I found a pair of resistors I could bypass with various means and the pedals became magnificently loud like on a church organ.... or like the bass player in a band. The cups in the kitchen were rattling!!!</p>

              I need to refine it though. At the moment the manuals distort if I hold a sustained bass note!</p>

              I think I'm getting ready for a 3 piece band...... no! Two! Don't need a bass player or a lead guitarist....NO! build the drum unit back into the lower half of the organ when I do this two part chop and I can play solo!! In my LIVING ROOM!</p>

                Durn! That wasn't what I posted for. Here!</p>

                Found a new site, put together by a home organ society in the US, a really cool presentation on the workings of a hammond.</p>

                and see, it looks like one of their members have a rare X66!http://www.nshos.com/index.html</p>

                  I've
                  actually just started doing this using free midi files that I have
                  modified into backing tracks on Garageband. I remove the keyboard or
                  organ tracks and have replaced some silly sounding software instruments
                  with better ones, added missing measures,etc. Great fun and excellent
                  for practicing timing on songs my band covers (and others I like) and
                  learning parts as you can isolate keyboard lead parts to hear them more
                  clearly.If I ever get some time i'm going to try mixing some original
                  stuff.</p>
