I took a pedal sustain switch from an M3 and adapted it to work on my C3 and with my leslies. Since it goes on the swell pedal you can change speeds hands free. I always hated half moons on club organs that were mounted at either end of the organ especially ones that were mounted at the far right. The M3's sustain switch is a momentary on and will have to be converted to a SPDT for a 2-speed leslie You can get the parts you need from a store like Radio Shack. One recommendation - don't switch 110volts this way, add a 12v relay.
I hope this helps.

sounds good, but im having trouble understanding how to use a relay for my switch, i fell kind of dumb in this area of electronics.
could you, or anyone else explain in easy to understand terms to me how to hook one of these doohickies up?

what is the leslie model, and is it connected to the point of playing? do you only need chorale/tremelo, or are you starting from nothing?

im starting from nothing, i just need a simple switch to control my motor relay.
