Default What is this behind Gregg Allman?

Hi all! I just joined the site as I'm getting ready to build some vented enclosures for a pair of JBL D140s I have laying around.

But my first post have nothing to do with that. I was listening to some Allman Brothers Band while working my day job from home and I noticed a strange piece of equipment behind Gregg Allman at 10:50 that I can't identify.

Anyone here know what it is?

It’s a Leslie, the loudspeaker for the Hammond
Leslie speaker - Wikipedia

I have disassembled a few. I might be able to dig up some pictures if you’d like?

Usually used with organs (even built-in) and a pain to slepp into the venue (i was a roadie sometimes during Uni).

If it's not too much effort. I'm reading the wikipedia article and watching YouTube videos, trying to get my head wrapped around how it works and sounds.

Interesting piece of equipment though. Thanks guys!

Jimmy PAge used one on several songs. Jesse Ed Davis used one a lot.

Sign of the Gypsy Queen by April Wine is to me the epitome of the guitar through Leslie sound.

Maceo Parker´s "Life On Planet Groove"..
Listen to the track "Georgia". There you´ll clearly hear how a "geared down" Leslie sounds
