Well the guy with the Organ apparently doesn't want to look on the back for the id plate. Too much work since its a freebee. All I've gotten out of him so far is its a Lowry.

I think Lowrey organs mainly used 6V6's or 6L6's push pull amps. The power transformers are quite large as the tone generators used tubes and they all had to be powered up. Se if he has the original speaker or additional tubes, that is if you are interested. I think you would be looking at a 15-40W amp depending on which one.

Well we'll see what he says tomorrow, if anything.
Its 120 mile round trip to get up there. Its too expensive to drive my truck that far and take the chance that its a wind bag or should I say, something other than a tube amp. Maybe he will give me more info.

I am curious about something. I keep reading these references to Push Pull amps. What does that mean?

And as for transformers. Does a particular amp have to have a special transformer or does it just have to be big enough or have the capacity to power the circuit at hand?

For instance, if I had something like a Fender Blues Jr. Could I take a transformer from a Deluxe or a Deville and use it? Or maybe from a Peavey Tube Amp or even could I use one from a solid state amp?

Thanks!
