I'm getting ready to send this old Conn organ to its final resting place. Is there anything worth pulling from it before it goes? The rotating speaker or any reverb parts...anything?

I'd grab all the guts!

the old caps and resistors might be worth pulling.

speakers, reverb tank, leslie

some old organs have som really cool inductors and capacitors, see if you can post some pictures of the circuit boards.

Proanalog uses the inductors and capacitors from old italian made organs for his wah wahs.

looks like there might be a tube...grab everything mentioned above plus anything that may use tubes, also grab the jack for the leslie...could be useful for connecting to an organ...you never know

Thanks for all the replies....I'll try to get some better pictures tonight if I can.

Ok...got a little side tracked but finally got around to pulling it apart and grabbing some pics.
Hopefully I can find a way to make something of this reverb.

not too exciting but I saw a few metal can germanium transistors. And quite a few inductors, in the last picture you can see some inverted metal cans on the right with 2 wires coming out of epoxy. See if they have ratings marked on them
Also some nice big reddish caps which can be good for amps or guitars' tone controls. there are a bunch in the 4th picture.
