    5 pin (C3) to 6 pin (Leslie 122) connection

    I have recently bought a Hammond C3 with a PR-40 tone cabinet, connected by 5 pin plugs. I would like to connect a six pin Leslie 122 to the C3 and have looked at a number of sites with pinout information, but cannot readily identify a definitive solution to my problem. Could anyone provide the info I need or point me to a web site that may help?

    I've also got a C3 with PR40. Mighty good sound! The best is to have a PR40 AND a 122 cranking together....</p>

    However, you'll need to buy a whole C3 to 122 connector kit, it involves the half moon switches etc. I can do a search for you, but I don't have the details right now. The kits tend to be a bit pricey, but you can also get the details of whats involved, and you may be able to build something. I'll be back in a moment!</p>

    Cheers!</p>

    There's also a lot of good stuff here, like the leslie pin out *data "what pins go where"</p>

    http://www.speakeasyvintagemusic.com...eslie/id11.htm</p>

    And here's an ebay page with the 6122 kit mentioned on speakeasy. Asking price is US$165.</p>

    Brendon,</p>

    </p>

    Thank a heap for getting the information for me, I really appreciate your efforts. I have asked the seller of the 6122 if he will mail the kit to Australia. Fingers crossed. If I can get at the price quoted, it will be a considerable saving on the usual on-line price. Hopefully it will come with installation instructions, (I am assuming it will be different from the 8002 instructions you pointed me to).</p>

    Thanks again,</p>

    Glenn</p>
