Played B3 for years, won't carry one any more. I had a hard time deciding between the XM1 and the Voce V3. The V3, to my ear, had vastly superior accuracy, but had lots of technical problems (Dave Amels and I spend a number of hours trying to resolve some of these without a solution.) But the Hammond, while it sounds really good, has two real problems for a pro user - the controller omits percussion short/long and loud/soft, those are only available as programmed-in patches; and the scond problem - the drawbars connect via a 9-pin miniDin (a Mac printer cable!) which is totally unsuitable for 5-night a week removal-reinsertion. For the studio or home user, it's a great box! The Lesie is as good as you're going to get from a dual-point source (it will plug into a real one...)

Well, all I can say is that the night after I bought it, I was playing along on the XM-1 to some old jazz-funk tapes, and my flatmate couldn't tell if it was me or the tape. I love it. I love the build quality, the look, and ooooooh, the sound of it. Never played a real B3, but surely it can't be better than this?

I'm a stage-artist for nine years. All the time I used my Yamaha B200. Listening to

my favourites: Deep Purple, Santana I dreamt of playing my own real Hammond.

Let's say this module is second best, but it's preferred above carrying the real


When I get the chance (proffessional and two/three roadies!!) I'd consider to play it.
