  • Leslie LC8-7m DIN connector cable

    Hi All,

    Does anyone know the pin-out assignments for the new Leslie 8 pin DIN connectors e.g. on Leslie Models 3300P, 3300W, 2102mk2 and 2103mk2 ?

    I have just acquired an LC8 cable with DIN connectors and am thinking of installing additional sockets on my 925 and 330 Leslies to enable this cable to also be used with those Leslies.

    Any information or advice would be much appreciated.

    Thanks,
    Peter

    A call to Ray at Hammond Organ Company 630-five four three-0277 might be in order - see below:

    According to the 3300 Service Manual

    1 = Signal In

    2 = Ground (Chassis)

    3 = A Gnd

    4 = Gnd (Chassis)

    5 = No Connection

    6 = No Connection

    7 = Fast

    8 = Slow


    According to the XK1 Service Manual (which has the connector drawn as a 9-Pin - ??!!) the pinout is different:

    1 and 4 = 8P Rot In

    2 = Leslie Detect (I think - it is not labeled, and the diagram shows 8 pins, not 8)

    3 = No Connection

    5 = Ground

    6 = No Connection

    7 = Leslie Fast

    8 = Leslie Slow


    However the XM22 kit manual shows yet another pinout:

    1 = Audio

    2 = Leslie Detect

    3 = AG (audio ground?)

    4 = No Connection

    5 = DG (digital ground?)

    6 = On

    7 = Fast

    8 = Slow

      Wow, what a dog's breakfast they have made of that connector interface. I originally acquired the cable (very cheaply) simply because it was available and had more than the number of cores that I am minimally looking for (7) to hook up a 330. The intention being to cut off the DIN plugs and then attach 11 pin amphenol connectors. It now makes even more sense to stick with that plan as the 8 pin DIN doesn't appear to be standardised across their organ ranges!

      It also makes it clearer to me to replace the 9 pin connector with an 11 pin connector in the 925 (which already uses its own separate mains input) wired as per 11 pin-out, and use the cable for the purpose originally intended (wired into 11 pin connectors). That way, I will have common 11 pin connection into whichever Leslie I choose to hook up to.

      There is also that thing about connections doing what people 'think' they should do, hence an 11 pin connection behaving as an 11 pin connection is fine by me (even on the 925). I never did like the idea of any mains in the hook-up cable.

      Thank you most kindly for the information on the 8-pin debacle (it's not just a dog's breakfast, it's also been 'done like a dog's DIN-ner').
      Cheers,
      Peter
