This is a vintage 1966 Leslie 122 speaker cabinet. Originally intended for use with a Hammond B3 organ, it is also appropriate for Hammond C3 and A-series models. This is also the best model for use with electric guitar, and has become known as the ultimate rotary speaker. This particular example, serial number H53483, was purchased from a very well known Hammond/Leslie repairman. Located in North Hollywood, CA for some time, he slowly acquired many interesting pieces with celebrity provenance. This Leslie belonged to The Carpenters at one point, and was labeled “Karen Carpenter’s, $2975,” on the side. It was serviced years ago, and hasn’t been used since. This is a very cool Leslie in very excellent condition.
