    I would suggest that you be very careful handling the "horseshoe" clips. While they are silver grey in color, they are ferrous and will be drawn toward the magnet, right though the diaphragm, and...

    Personally, I prefer the sound of the Wurlitzer. I had a very first generation when I was ~15 that I paid $70 for. Like this one, and maybe older. Traded it, and a Hammond M3, for a full sized...

    Interesting.

    I also did more work on the Memans and decided that with 4mH/30 mfd on the 2241, I could get a better better blend between the 2241 and 2251 at the higher end of the range (~900 Hz),...

    ~4mH/30mfd gave the best blend to the 2251J. Recognize I only work with what I have on hand, so values could certainly be better optimized.
