  • Hammond M-102 project first look

    Initial look at the new M102 project revealed an AO-29 original power cord that needs some help an AO-44 reverb amp has a little cap problem.

    Looks exactly like my M100 power cord 8) The cord going through the center of the Heyco strain relief was so hard that I could not get the strain relief to release. It wound up breaking from age brittleness. You might want to obtain a new one.

    It looks like some bees came and took their wax back from the caps.

        What's a tone switch? Do you mean gain? The M-102 is my fav M100 cabinet. It looks like a mini A100.

          I saw a vid on Youtube and called it tone but I think that you are right "Gain" might be more appropriate

        I'm trying to think of an analogy here to describe how dangerous it is to even plug that cable in for testing the amp out. Don't think of it. Replace it first.

          Muckelroy: how about "plugging in that wire is like sticking your fingers into the outlet ....wet!"

            No worries. Both are off to the Hammond tech for service.
