Good morning, I'm sorry to hear about that. How old is your organ?Also is the 122 amp the same age?And specifically what is working on the organ?And one last question, were there any power outages or electrical storms in your area just prior to this event?Thank youTech Michael

Hi Micheal,
as the heading says the year is 1957.
the preamp and the 122 leslie preamp have both been recently rebuilt.
all is working on the organ except the output which is practically zero.
the vibrato when swithed on cuts the signal dead on both manuals.
its possible there was power fluctuation here in Spain. it happens all the time.
Thanks Jon
