Hard-to-find information

AO-28 overall frequency response (Excel spreadsheet). Frequency generator attached with voltage divider 1kOhm/18 Ohm to drawbar 1' on pos. 8, others set to 0. See spreadsheet for details. This frequency response does not consider the manual tapering found on consoles (see below). Since signal is injected directly into the drawbars, it represents the organ amplifiers overall frequency response. Nice if you want to modify your spinet to a B3-like sound.

Check my schematics download section for circuit drawings. Captain Foldback's Hammond & Leslie Page also is a good source for Hammond/Leslie schematics and service manuals. Also try the HammondWiki.
