  • Leslie 122 voltage used for Europeans

    Hi,

    I noticed today from the Leslie 122 manual that it can be wired for two voltages, i.e. 250 and 234V. I checked mine and it is wired for 250V, see picture. I live in Norway and the mains are closer to 230 than 250V.

    Do you guys keep the 250V setting or resetting it to 234V when living in europe?

    In the US, our versions were built for 117V while in recent times, the voltage has risen. In my shop it's 123V for example.

    The normal answer to your question is sure, wire it for your voltage.

    If it were me, I would measure some internal voltages to see how close they are to spec. It may turn out to be close as is and that would equal less strain on the tubes etc. Since I'm always fighting voltages that are running high, that's how I would proceed. (wish we had multitap transformers)

      Good idea. I will check the internal voltages. Thank you
