 As well as the louder overall output levels of all the TG notes 1 to 91, I have recalibrated the TG output curve to be more like that of the pre 1956 TG output curves that had stronger bass and midrange levels thus producing a fatter organ sound. 
  
 I am aware of the potential dangers or the pickup rod hitting a tone wheel whilst recalibrating the TG and I have the proper voltage meters to do a proper TG recalibration 
  
-My 1962 C3 originally had the aged wax capacitors and soon after buying the C3 in 2002 I then replaced the aged wax capacitors with new correct mfd spec capacitors. However after reading all the information and the controversy about the correct way of recreating the proper factory capacitor matching procedure I decided to replace the recapped capacitors brass tray of my 1962 C3 with the red mylar capped brass tray from a 1970 T-300 organ. Te reason for this was because the red mylar capacitors have not drifted off spec like the wax capacitors did so therefore the red mylar capacitors would still more or less be correctly matched with the corresponding inductor coil transformers.

 Interestingly after I installed the red mylar capped tray of the 1970 T-300 into my 1962 C3, the output levels of the TG notes 49 to 91 then became noticeably louder than what they were with the original recapped capacitors tray of my 1962 C3. The inductor coils of the brass tray that was originally in my 1962 C3 have the dark brown enamelled wire around the bobbins whilst the inductor coils from the 1970 T-300 brass capacitors tray have the bright red enamelled wire around the bobbin. 
 It would appear that the inductor coils with the bright red enamelled wire used in the late 60's or early 70's organs produced a higher Q or resonance levels than the inductor coils with the dark brown enamelled wire used in the early 1960's organs.
