    Maybe the T500 has dried out now.

    Re above mention of an Aurora:
    Look for the second generation LSI Auroras, Classic/Custom/246172 if you are interested in investigating this series.

    Meanwhile re: the XE-200:

    Nothing wrong with an XE2000 and a big leslie! For an earlier generation Suzuki Hammond it makes a great sound. Sure, it's not a pure tonewheel or even an XK3 or 'New B3' but 99% of listeners wouldn't be able to tell - it's just the Hammond 'experts'. Add strings, orchestral voices and a decent rhythm section and the XE series acquits itself quite well. It's when you add the leslie that it comes alive, though.

    As for the T500, flood damage could well destroy the power supply, main amp, pedal dividers, pedals and swell pedal, probably not worth the effort of fixing when you could just go and get another T500 for peanuts. It would make that distintive 'T' sound, though, especially when hooked up to that leslie!

    What kind of music you like to play? I happen to really enjoy the old LSI Aurora as far as spinet's go. You get a huge sound out of them, and can probably pick one up for less than $50 if you find the right person.

    T 500

    First question....how bad was your t-500 damaged and...did anyone TRY to repair it?

    Wet feet, even when bad can sometimes be fixed with the chop mod.

    As you are looking for a replacement...why not just get another T500?

    There are plenty of good tonewheel spinets out there. A little hunting and patience goes a long way. Replacing with something new is NOT going to give you the same sound.

    I don't know...I have played a bunch of hammond spinets and I STILL keep coming back to the M3. May I suggest one of those?

    I think that model and the rest of that line may have already been discontinued in 2008.

    Does the lack of response here indicate that the XE200 is not a popular or liked Hammond model then?

    Just curious

    ps - My XE200se sounds fantastic, especially since I introduced it to a Leslie HL822!!

    My 35-year-old T500 was ruined in a flood and I need to replace it with something new. I've been looking on-line at the XE200, but no local dealers have any in stock for me to look at and play. Does anyone have any first-hand experience with one? Also, neither Hammond's website nor brochure has the dimensions. Can anyone help with that?</p>

    Thanks.
