    Cordovox amp and Tone Generator

    In 1965, I played in a band with a guy who played a Cordovox and wore a Beatle wig! He went on to become station manager at WMMS.

    Tell us more...

    I take it the Sound City speakers are not stock?

    And does the tone generator have 60 tubes or something?
    I bought a relic'd guitar because I liked the way it sounded. Then I refinished it because I didn't like the way it looked.

    The Cordovox was an electronic accordion. Had some organ sounds, etc.. And yeah, lots of tunes in the tone generator. Hammond used tone wheels, some others, Lowery?, used a tube circuit to generate tones. Amp is not mine. I wouldn't want it!

    Looks cool.
    I've been a pilgrim on this earth, since the day of my birth, I'm a long way from my home.
