• Guys, we've spent considerable money converting the Les Paul Forum to this new XenForo platform, and we have ongoing monthly operating expenses. THE "DONATIONS" TAB IS NOW WORKING, AND WE WOULD APPRECIATE ANY DONATIONS YOU CAN MAKE TO KEEP THE LES PAUL FORUM GOING! Thank you!

A Hammond AO 35 reverb unit out of an organ, I converted it to an 18 W Marshall "Lite IIB" circuit, I call it the "Gammatron."

I'll wager it has a woody tone all round with a heavy bottom and transparent highs....

Woody tone indeed, a lot of sag, not much headroom....once you up the volume to a certain point it only delivers one sound, but it's good! At lower volume (say with the drummer playing at reasonable volume) very pleasant with organic sparkle!

Badass. Im REALLY digging the enclosure/ " head". Ive got an old Marshall 100 watt chassis and want a unique platform for it that shows the guts.

Nah, nothing there that can't be replaced! The plexi top is so the beer has half a chance of going over the side and avoiding the tube sockets...

I do have a cover for it with panels when I take it out!
