Yeah, that would've been cool. Holler when you run through Bristol!

Thanks, Kenny!

Actually that's not my organ in the picture, just the cab. Mine's similar, but in Italian Provincial style. They called the pictured style "Mediterranean," I think.

Hammond got 'em mixed up, too. I found a page of info on the Series 10 cabs this afternoon with an excerpt out of a Hammond catalog, clearly showing a 10-95 cab labeled as a 10-82. They'll certainly look good together.

I'm waiting on my 18 year old son and his friend to come home and help me get this thing out of my van and into the house so I can see how it sounds. They went to visit the gorgeous young girl my boy just took to the prom at the chicken wing place where she works, so it may be a while before they get here. But if I work it right, they'll do all the heavy lifting. Especially if the cute girl comes along.

Hey TR, you were right on. After it was set up and working, Mrs. R came in to check it out. She said "That's a beautiful piece of furniture! I don't mind you getting something like that."

Something else about this cabinet: The SOB is LOUD! Louder than the organ's built-in amp, considerably. And it's got a LOT more bass with that woofer on the bottom of that ported closed cab. An old Hammond manual says its output is 145 watts. That's likely all 3 channels added together with about half of it in the bass and a quarter in each treble channel. But it will roar, and even with the organ's "Quiet" tab pushed down, the cab set on "Loud" doesn't get very quiet.

I can picture you sitting at your organ, volume cranked, playing the intro to "Speed King" by Deep Purple.

Nice cab BTW.

I can picture that, too, but I'm not in Jon Lord's league.

He did a good bit of playing with his C3 run through Marshall guitar amps, BTW.

Had the pleasure of watching Mr. Lord work close up back in 1985 at the Ottawa Civic Center. We were front row in front of his side of the stage. Darn near went deaf!

To avoid similarly going deaf, when Mrs. R was out yesterday I moved the cabinet to the other side of the room, behind me. Generally cleaned and straightened the room while I was at it. Mrs. R's been in here, but hasn't apparently noticed the move. She does like how it sounds, though. This afternoon I was sitting in here picking out hymns and primitively harmonizing them. She liked it.

The cabinet's big ported space for the woofer really puts out the low notes. I think it'll punch out the 32 Hz fundamental of the low C, which the essentially open-backed design of the organ console won't. My problem with that is that the pictures and clock hanging on the wall buzz.

[updated:LAST EDITED ON May-01-06 AT 12:26 PM (EST)]I did put a nice little brass pot of fake plants on it. Crocheted doily, now there's a great idea! It'd keep the pot from buzzing, too. (But it rattles and buzzes the pictures on the wall anyway.)

She just noticed the move. "Oh, you moved the cabinet." She's OK with it, and I explained how much better it works there.
