  • Connecting a T - 222 to a 147?



    Hey guys,</p>

    I'm just taking a break from working on my Northern CV to finish the mods on my evil custom T222.</p>

    There's a pic in my gallery if anyone wants to see it.
    </p>

    I've been making it rock club worthy by doing some of the mods discussed here on the forum.
    </p>

    I'm adding a 12AX7 tube overdrive section &amp; also mounting a mike inside to pick up the internal leslie. I'll be running the mike to a flush mounted female XLR jack for ease of use (when there is no external leslie present).</p>

    My question is what kind of leslie kit or parts could I use to make this organ connect to a 145/147 and could I use the fast / slow switch already located on the T222 to control both the on board leslie &amp; the 147. I'm thinking maybe I need something custom made to handle this situation...</p>

    Lemme know whatcha think.
    </p>

    Cheers,</p>

    Hiya D!</p>

    AndyG will know what kit or parts you'll need... in essence you'll just need the kit number, then find online the pdf which lists all of the parts in the kit and you can make it up yourself.</p>

    However, the existing leslie switch, at least on my T-500, IS configured to control the external leslie speed as well. If the T200 one isn't, you could put an extra contact in there... or something. I know the 710/760 leslie's only need to ground/earth the wire to the fast or slow relay, but I don't know whether the older leslies work on relays or direct switching.</p>

      Thanks Brendon,</p>


      I'll check and see if the T200's are configured the same ( for leslie connectivity ). </p>

      Thanks for your help. Keep on rockin!</p>

        T200's are wired for a Hammond tone cabinet, whereas the T500 is wired for a 9-pin leslie like the 710. </p>

        The ideal way of doing things is to use a proper 26-1 (AKA 7279) kit with a pair of half moons. They do crop up on eBay and you can even buy them 'new' from Halfmoon.</p>

        It's very easy to make one up. http://www.fishorgans.com/leslie_kits/007279.pdf has all the details you need. Remember that the leslie speed switching uses AC mains, so any switch used must be rated for this.</p>

        As for using the organ's own leslie switch, you'd need this to operate a relay to switch the AC for the 145's speed change. It can be done, no doubt.</p>

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