  • Securing Generator

    Was watching Joey D. beating on an A-105 on some youtube video, and the back of the organ was exposed, as the cover was missing. You could see the tone generator banging back and forth as he punished the organ during a set ! lol

    ....A very tame Keith Emerson, so to speak. Without the knives, of course. Can you upload the link for our Saturday night viewing pleasure? It would be a treat.

    Thanks,

        Thank you, gtj!

        Absolutely right. The water bottle looks like it's going to flip off the bench. And the Coke on the left cheek and the Hammond oil tube both have standing waves. 😎 Wonder if that stage is on wheels.

        Great observation, Sherlock. Fun post. I've been through two bowls of popcorn watching this.

            Years ago, Goff Professional used to sell a generator shock-mount kit for touring organists. It consisted of some round rubber gaskets, fender washers, and spacer hardware. It allowed you to keep the TG locked, but still decoupled from the shelf by the rubber. It was not quite as quiet as spring suspension, but it meant you didn't constantly have to be locking and unlocking the TG.

              I think that this is a great reminder that the TG is most often hidden from view, so it is easy to forget what can happen when moving the unit. I have seen broken wires in a friend's B3 which had been on the road for years. I haven't seen a pickup rod banged into a tone wheel, but that would be very bad news. I am sure that the experts here have seen that and worse.
