    If I put a Hammond BV in my house, what sort of room or what size room would have the best acoustics? Or what could I do to make the acoustics more flattering for the organ when I'm playing parlor music and classical and Broadway music?

    What kind of tone cabinet are you using?

        Well as a general rule of thumb: Putting the Leslie in a corner gives you the most bass response. Out of the corner but close to the wall is the "next step", and free standing in the middle of the floor would give you the least of the low frequencies. Adjust to taste.

          I guess you are familiar with the basic aspects of room acoustics as regards cubic volume, hard and soft surfaces and their relationship to reverberation time?

          Also, will you be playing for yourself or an audience, and do you intend to make recordings from within the room?

            Thank enor and gtc, I would be playing for myself and once in a while for an audience of 2. No recordings. No rock n' roll concerts or blues jams. I just need it to sound pretty.
