I like how these are wired point to point. Makes modding the circuit even easier!

Hi there!

The long chassis leslie amp sat only the leslie speakers, that were the rotary speaker cabinet. Leslie and Hammond had no relation, in fact the rumors tells that Laurens hammond weren't to found of each other. Mr. Hammond said that he: "Never intended his organs to sound that way". It was after Laurens Hammonds time that leslies were licensed to use in hammond organs.
Of course it was used any way as the were leslie kit on the market and the leslies sounds great, but there were no relation between the companys.

At this site I belive you will see the licensed ST70:
http://web.mac.com/boem99/Site/Fun_Stuf.html
It sat in the amplifier rack for the Hammond G100, the largest hammond tonewheel ever produced. In the pictures you will se a lot of rust. That's becouse it's been smoke damaged in a curch fire!

Btw, good look finding one i organs, as far as I know the St70 was only used in the g100 and if I'm not mistaken it is less than 10 organs left, if not less than 5! And most important, if you gut out a Hammond organ for the amplifier, I will hit you!

Hope this clears up some of the mystery.

Best regards,

Magnus K.

A few months back, there was an ST-70 clone for sale on ebay that was point-to-point... It looked really nice.

Nice informative post Magnus, thanks. And I agree 100% with your conclusion. Leave them Hammond organs alone!

Wow that amp is up over $400.00 now with 24 bids.

I must be missing something.

Could it be the mismatched tubes that make it so desirable.

No the fact that it is comparatively rare might have something to do with it..

I will have to agree it looks completely undercooked.
