  • Newbie has problems with noisy Hammond



    I was wondering if anyone could give me some advice on how to get rid of noisy static hisses and pops coming from my old Hammond M-111. I've cleaned up all the wiring on the amp and reverb unit and it helped a bit. It has pretty old tubes. The noise goes away considerably with the "soft volume" switch hit. Its oiled up and functions perfectly otherwise. I'm just a hobbyist when it comes to electronics so details are appreciated with any replies I may recieve. </p>

    Thanks</p>

    I'd start by cleaning up all the tube sockets. Caig De-Oxit is what's used around these parts. You sound like you're OK inside the organ, but do be careful with all those HT voltages.</P>


    Let us know how you get on.</P>

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

      that DeOxit stuff is amazing. Did a thorough cleaning of all the electronics and the static and hiss is completely gone. Thanks.
