I hear you about the Bank Account. Saw a vintage Gretsch organ (who
knew) for 50$
Almost took it.. just for a larf.
Oh dear... the old organ sickness. I used to have
many of them... the OrgaSonic was a true POS,
went ahead and tossed it even though it had
about 200 6SN7s in it. The Hammond SS
organ and Leslie I got for $350 were fun, for
a while... I managed to repair it and get it
working, when I found out that it hummed
and wheezed like a banshee. Later I found
that the hum was coming from the Leslie...
those unbalanced SS models were ill-conceived,
you have to use a balanced line if you're
going to run the signal along with the 120V
supply. I only have one old M100 and a
flood-victim Rhodes 54 now... at one time I
had two 73s, a Stage and a Suitcase both.
I've owned a Vox Continental too... man,
that thing was rickety... got it going before
Afraid if I ever see a Kustom T&R combo
organ I wouldn't be able to restrain myself...
