so, it looks like we're voting L-100.

 

i'm fairly pumped as all i have for organ sounds now are some kinda rough dx 21 sounds.

Folks, that's a Hammond L-100. :freak:

 

Ummmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm...

 

And guys. That double-manual Clavia thingy pictured in the other thread? It's a Photoshop mockup. [DUH] *DUH* [/DUH] :rolleyes:

 

Hell, even the Wifey knew that. :rolleyes: (But don't tell her about that new amp in my rack. I've convinced her that it's a cheap power strip that I borrowed from Ceasefire. :eek:

 

 

:D

well, i got it...it needed some serious cleaning...so we did that, and it worked for about 30 minutes...then we shut it off, and the motor won't start spinning again. so its time for some serious diagnostics. it sounded just great(although crazy quiet)

well, it didn't give off a seizing type of smell...it was running fine, then we shut it off...a minute later, i turn it back on and nothing happens. any ideas?

also, does anyone know what kind of oil they take?

They take Hammond oil. Don't put anything else in there. Get some Hammond oil from Tonewheel General Hospital . It's cheap.

 

If it doesn't even attempt to run (ie, no sound coming from the motors at all) my guess is the switch is either bad or the connections to the switch need to be resoldered. I got called to fix a B3 that wouldn't start and it turned out to be a wire going to the START switch was disconnected.

 

Could be the power cable, too.

it did run originally for about half an hour. it only stopped working after i shut it down. we used contact cleaner on the tubes and replaced one bad tube(it still has hammond tubes in it for the most part).

so, the switch/motor is likely intermitent if i read you right, which is fairly easy fix.

the power cable was the second thing we replaced after cleaning the tubes, and everything is getting power. tubes light up, power light comes on, and, when keyclick is turned on it clicks.
