  • Rotary speaker assy from a 'Cougar' worth fooling with to build a poor-man's Leslie?

    Someone near me is giving away a "Cougar". Would salvaging and building the rotary speaker unit into a standalone cabinet of some sort be worth the trouble, or would it just bring disappointment/sadness/depression when hooked up to a M3?

    Thanks!

    Thanks, Dave!
    This one didn’t happen, I couldn’t establish communication with the seller 8( I’ll keep watching for similar models now that I realize goodies may be inside 8)

    I guess If the guy will help me get it into the back of my truck, I’ll pick it up tomorrow. I have a young musician neighbor that may adopt my M3 and I thought the cougar speaker might be useful in providing a Leslie experience of some sort ‘on the cheap’ 8)
    Thanks Brendon!

    Swell pedal I meant, rather than bass pedals.

    I used a Cougar and a T500 to make a dual rotor speaker...
    Eventually you may want to put in a gutsier speaker for full range.
    Lots of good stuff in the cougar: the pedal will be good as a replacement for T, L and H series, and of course there's MILES of wire in that thing.
    The 12 chips used on the tone generator board are used in a number of its contemporary Hammonds and are hard to source... should anyone be nuts enough to try and repair an LSI hammond!
    I can't remember if there's a standalone crossover which sends the signal to the leslie, but if there is, bag that as well.
