  • Hammond M-111 and Motion Sound Pro-3T



    Hi all - I was able to get a used Motion Sound Pro-3T a couple of weeks ago and hooked it up to my M-111. It's got the tube pre-amp and a 45 watt amp for the rotor. Here's a video of me doing a demo of it:</p>

    http://vids.myspace.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=vids.individual&amp;videoid=5 2383160</p>

    I apologize in advance for the lousy playing, but hey, I'm still learning (I'm basically a drummer who also plays some guitar and bass). Sounds pretty good - I like how they set it up to model a 147, with the different rise and fall times for the rotor and low rotor sim. It's a little noisy at times on the fast speed (the camera didn't pick that up, fortunately), but other than that, I'm pleased.</p>

    See what you think, and, as always, thanks for all the good info to enable me to keep this ol' beast up and running (it's always a miracle that it works whenever I fire it up!). Charlie Mac

    Good score man, I like the 3Ts.
    </p>

    I've used one of these for a few years until I finally got a Leslie. I think they are the best of the sims, since they are a real spinning horn. I like the tube overdrive of the T model too.</p>

    I keep mine as a backup just in case anything breaks down in the old Leslie.</p>

    A couple things I've done:</p>

    - I bought a half moon switch off of Ebay, the 3 position switch with multi wires, and rewired it for the 3 positions of the Pro3T.</p>

    - I bought a 120 watt stereo amp (60 per side), split a 2x12 cabinet into separate speakers (ie separate jacks) and run the stereo signals from the Pro3T. Sometime this summer I'm going to angle the speakers in the cab as Motion Sound does with theirs. I think this helps the bottom end sim, it'd probably sound better with separate cabs to get more separation too.</p>

      Thanks, dwagar - I'll try running the bottom rotor sim through a couple of amps (I've got enough of them laying around) to get a stereo effect. Do you have a wiring diagram for the half-moon switch for this application? Thanks - Chasmac

        Hi,</p>

        It's nice to see videos of the M100 series (M111), thanks for sharing. </p>

        I've recorded some videos as well with my M111 hooked to a Leslie 147. The Leslie is now gone.</p>

          here's the schematic from MS</p>

          http://www.motion-sound.com/data/legacy_products/pro-3/support/PRO-3(T)%20Footswitch%20Wiring.jpg</p>

          I wired the half moon to a female stereo plug so I can use a stereo cord to the head.</p>

          Nice thing is it gives me stop, slow and fast settings on a 3 position half moon.</p>

          (I picked up a used 3 position half moon with multi wires, then it was just a simple matter of finding poles in the switch that worked)

            Thanks Don - I'll check it out - I'm too cheap to buy the half moon switch, so I'll probably go with a couple of light switches instead. I'll post my results when I get it done. Chasmac
