  • Age estimate of M-101 with Serial No. 2122 & Leslie 351 Ser.#A40968

    I recently acquired a Hammond M-101 (Ser. #2122) and a Leslie 351 (Ser.#A40968). What would be an age estimate of these items based on the serial numbers, particularly the M-101 with such a low number? Also, is the effort to get these up and running smoothly worth the trouble and expense? The M-101 may have issues with the amplifier but has been playing some through the Leslie. The organ and speaker had the connections already installed when purchased. Once they get to their resting places in the house, it takes some effort to move 'em somewhere else.

      Thank you for the manufacture date of the M-101. I was 11 when it was made. Is this the 2122nd M-100 manufactured or the 2122nd organ total made by Hammond?

      If this M-101 does have amplifier issues, how difficult (and reasonable) is it to repair the problem(s) or replace the amplifier? Also, the power cord has cloth insulation that requires the installation of a complete up-to-date replacement of that item.

      I've purchased (online) some supplies from Tonewheel General within the last few months and was pleased with the service.
