Massimo Cappello  Udine - Italy. I like exploring the mystery of Nature. I'm a modest Hammond organ player too, working hard for improving, every day!

Improvvisamente FRICO! Ottimo, fatto in casa a #paularo #carnia #friuli #frico #italy

The VEGAS! tonight at Avasinis, Supporting Act of The Animals. Great gig, great people, lot of fun. Thanks everyone! #rocknrollbands #hammond #hammondb3 #hammondc3 #lesliespeaker #leslie122 #progressiverock #music #avasinis #friuli #italy

And now with the GREAT MASTER Mr. Mick Gallagher, Hammond and Piano player of The Animals. I'm so proud for having played tonight before them...#rocknrollbands #hammond #hammondb3 #hammondc3 #lesliespeaker #leslie122 #rocknroll #music #avasinis #friuli #italy

Tonight at Avasinis (UD) we (a small local band) are the Supporting Act of "The Animals & Friends" directly from the UK! What a honor opening the gig before them!!! Here's their sound check. #rockmusic #rocknroll #theanimals #music #rocknrollbands

Here you are! #leslie122 power amplifier and AO-28 Preamplifier of my #hammondc3 all restored with brand new resistors, capacitors and new tubes...just waiting for the sound from the restored #hammond tone wheel generator...#hammondb3 #hammondc3 #hammondc3witpercussionšŸ˜ #hammondb3organ #hammondc3organ #hammondc3again #rockmusic #progressiverock #makers #makers #musicalinstrument #restoration #lesliespeaker #leslie122 #leslie122speaker

Meanwhile I replaced all passive components of the tube amplifier of my #leslie122 rotary speaker. Resistors, capacitors, particularly the electrolytic filter capacitors of the power supply section. This will remove the hum noise from the 50hz power line making my #hammondC3 very silent. Ah! How much I love #oldelectronics : you can fix it, you can restore it (provided you'll find the components on eBay šŸ˜œ). #hammondb3 #hammondc3 #hammondc3witpercussionšŸ˜ #hammondb3organ #hammondc3organ #hammondc3again #rockmusic #progressiverock #makers #makers #musicalinstrument #restoration #lesliespeaker #leslie122 #leslie122speaker

I was right! Look how the original value of this 0.255microFarad wax capacitor from my 1963 #HammondC3 tonewheel generator is changed in more than 50years: now it's 0.590mF, more than doubled!!! I measured all of them after removal, they were all similar: more than double the original value. This is causing my organ to sound muffled, weak, low definition. Now let's start with the replacement for resuscitating the original sound!!! I'm so excited!!! #hammondb3 #hammondc3 #hammondc3witpercussionšŸ˜ #hammondb3organ #hammondc3organ #hammondc3again #rockmusic #progressiverock #makers #makers #musicalinstrument #restoration #lesliespeaker #leslie122 #leslie122speaker

That's a historic heritage discovered!!! After having removed the tonewheel generator I found these writings inside the cabinet of my Hammond C3. They were hidden by the generator, never seen before! Perhaps they refer to the different manufacturing stages of the wood cabinet...who knows? Anyway matching the capacitor manufacturing date (week 40-1963) with these writings (December 28-9:00, and January 2nd - 9:45) I concluded that my Hammond C3 had been very likely initiated end of 1963 and finished early 1964! WOW!!! #hammondb3 #hammondc3 #hammondc3witpercussionšŸ˜ #hammondb3organ #hammondc3organ #hammondc3again #rockmusic #progressiverock

Original waxed paper capacitors on my Hammond C3 tonewheel generator. Notice the number "6340" printed on the capacitor: that means it was manufactured in week 40-1963. All those 54years old caps had greatly changed their value, baaaadly affecting the sound of the organ, resulting muffled, low in volume and without nice and aggressive high order harmonics!!! Now let's start with the replacement with brand new (everlasting) Polyester Capacitors!!! #hammondb3 #hammondc3 #hammondc3witpercussionšŸ˜ #hammondb3organ #hammondc3organ #hammondc3again #rockmusic #progressiverock

Tonewheel generator of my 1963 Hammond C3 removed from its cabinet for complete restoring (capacitor replacement and tone recalibration) HUGE WORK AHEAD!!!#hammondb3 #hammondc3 #hammondc3witpercussionšŸ˜ #hammondb3organ #hammondc3organ #hammondc3again #rockmusic #progressiverock
