Leslie HL 822
Cabin amplification Hammond organ.
A model for little-known late, but good.
Dimensions: 104 * 73.5 * 53 cm and about 75 pounds without wheels ... like the Model 147 and 122
Transistor amplifier of 215W Solid State therefore one of the most powerful leslie
4 channels:
2 speakers for treble rotary pale (almost two horns similar to the classic Leslie)
1 HP 15 inches for ficxe serious but this one (unlike the classic Leslie)
HP 1 medium rotating in the drum bottom
2 HP medium on the sides
2 speeds + stop: slow / fast that you control with the foot pedal combo that goes with it (and who can connect any instrument with a 6.35mm jack input)
11-pin cable for direct connection of an organ.

UTILIZATION

General configuration simple, but still a bit more complex than a traditional Leslie because of the four channels that are adjustable on the side (two 3-position switch for acute stationary or rotating) and 3 knobs behind (as in 760 ) or screwdriver adjustable drum / horn / ...
So we have many more possibilities of settings and can be found as a classic leslie on typical (147, 122, 760 ...) or a sound or a little more modern edge.

SOUNDS

Sound side, OK it's not a tube amp like a 147 or 122 and so it's a little cooler ...
But when you put the volume above 8, it starts to saturate, a kind of fuzz balanced and very pleasant, so it is not an overdrive lamp, but a fuzz a little sharper, which is very good and it's very interesting.
So there is a sound typical organ + Leslie saturation but with a slightly different classics. It is also very good at guitar to play slow blues for example ...

OVERALL OPINION

Very good cabin as often with Leslie ...
I had a 147, a 760, sold both and are very good cabins.
This is also a very good car, more powerful, more versatile, different type (a little sharper, sounding a little more modern, slightly less hot) but still a Leslie!
Changes to try: get a HP 15-inch bass that is more vintage, as Jensen (C15K, MOD15 ...).
