    Re: Lowrey H25R-2 with blown amp



    Hmm, that's a poser.</P>


    The proper leslie for that organ is one of the 100/101/102/103 series, but they're all 4 channel. Shame, as one of them adds ensemble style strings phasing to the 3rd channel. There aren't that many 3 channel leslies, some are good but some like the 610 are pretty c**p, so we'd need to know the model number. He can look on the back - that's where it will be! And you can't be sure thatit's working properly until the organ's fixed.If it is just the ouput stage of the amp that's gone down, that doesn't seem like too much to fix, but you'll want to check out why it failed. Power supply problems, perhaps. As far as I know, it's all pretty basic stuff in that part of the organ.</P>


    Bottom line is that you'll get a second set of pipes and possibly a decent leslie out of the deal, and the H25-2 is a good old sounding Lowrey.</P>


    Find out about the leslie model first. If it's a bad one, you don't want it and the deal may fall on that.</P>

      G'day Skippy,</P>


      I have a Lowrey console and have been trying to track down a Leslie for some time. Can you find out the model and condition of the Leslie and I may be interested in it &amp; the pipes for $350 - ie. you get a free organ and I get a Leslie, and would use the pipes as an ornament. Maybe you could get a photo of the setup &amp; post it. Freight down to Victoria is not that much. Wouldn't take much to sort out the organ's amp and as Andy says it's a great sounding instrument.</P>


      Let me know,</P>


      Cheers,</P>

        Thanks Guys,</P>


        I will ask the owner tonight to make an effort to locate the model number of the Leslie. If it is a working unit, properly matched with the Lowrey I will of coursekeep it with the organ. It is probably a 4 channel unit.Perhaps I misunderstood him or he made a mistake.</P>


        Sorry Ian. The chap who sold me the conn pipes on Sunday has about 50 Leslies in storage. Perhaps he has what you are looking for. Just send me a private message and I will give you his phone number. I have already ear marked the conn pipesto enhance the main channel voicingon my Celebrity. It surely needs it.</P>


        I was pleasantly surprised by the improvement of the sound of my Conn 643 using the pipes. They add a lovely sparkle to the mid and upper frequencies. A big improvementto the strings. They are in almost pristine condition. I checked the speaker cones before I committed myself. They look to be in perfect condition. Like Ian, I was thinking more in line of decorative effect than sound enhancement. I don't know what they cost new. Probably a bundle. As nice as they are - $AU200 is a fat price considering the popularity of anything "organ".</P>

          <SPAN style="FONT-SIZE: 11pt; FONT-FAMILY: 'Comic Sans MS'; mso-bidi-font-family: Arial">I have just spoken to the owner. He says that all what is left of the model label on the back of the Leslie are the corners. The centre with the info on it is missing. The appr. dimensionsin inches are: 33 high x 28 wide x 20 deep. The stationary speakers are a 15" bass and one or two (he is not sure)6x9"s. Plus a single rotor (rotosonic) with a 6x9" speaker. He sensed my rapidly fading interest in the Leslie and put the price down to $AU300.00 including the Conn 145 pipes.<o:p></o:p></SPAN></P>


          <SPAN style="FONT-SIZE: 11pt; FONT-FAMILY: 'Comic Sans MS'; mso-bidi-font-family: Arial">The best match I can get in the blue book is model 700/705 which is only 2 channel. A friend told me that the ideal Leslie setup for the Lowrey H25 is a pair made up ofmodel 102 andmodel 103.A far cry from what is on offer here. Thecause for his organ amp problem may be a mismatched Leslie. The Leslie channel on the organ still works. Perhaps he is feeding the 2 main channels into one Leslie channel.<o:p></o:p></SPAN></P>

              If you can home brew a 7191 kit, you can hook up the 700 to any two channel organ. With an 1197 kit you could plug in and amplify half of your Elegante! In any case, as kkeys says, a twin rotor leslie is a much better bet for the Thomas or the Hammond. The 700 does sound nice on the Conn. It's providing the heavy theatrical throb to the tibias on my 580 recording. The fizz is added with a 251.</P>

                        That's quite a bargain bundle, and good to hear that the Lowrey came back to life so easily. There is a guy at the Lowrey Yahoo group who has won several Lowreys on eBay for 99p. I recall he got one home and found some pound coins in the bench, so made an instant profit on the deal!</P>


                        The H25-2 can sound great. That leslie combo added the ability to make ensemble strings, which was the icing on the cake. Try to find the album by Johhny Kemm "First Class-confirmed" on the Concert Recording label, to hear the organ at its brilliant best.</P>


                        I liked the H25-3 as well, with the brass and string synths. Big as a bus, with a big sound to match.</P>

                        It's not what you play. It's not how you play. It's the fact that you're playing that counts.

                          <SPAN style="FONT-SIZE: 10pt"><FONT face="Times New Roman">Yes, I read Richards amusing post about the coin. The Lowrey was indeed an easy fix. Almost disappointing. Here I was, all prepared for a few days of fault finding, armed with multimeter, oscilloscope, solder gear and a handful of components on the ready. This is something new and exciting for an old retired carpenter. When I found a blown 2Amp fuse where there should have been 1Amp I expected major dramas. No, not so – just a bad diode. I am sure there will be plenty of opportunities in the future to practice my infantile electronic skills.</FONT></SPAN></P>

                            It's the 'space generator' in the 102/103 that does the ensemble. If you could take the output from the 3rd channel in the organ, run it through a guitar FX box for the ensemble effect and then into a separate amp, thatmight do it, but it's a lotta hassle!</P>


                            Plenty to really enjoy in the H25 as it is anyway.</P>
