I used a "B" for many years, during the 60's and 70's. Had a mov. master rig to carry it and the leslies around. My son just bought me a brand new CX-3 for Christmas. I was using my keyboard and a Hughes Kettner tube Rotosphere made in Germany which did a decent job, but the CX-3 nails the B Hammond sound, and the action is excellent. Many keyboards have sounds that mimic the Hammond and Leslie. This one is the Hammond B hands down. Look out Joey D, Sterling is back in business.

I Love the new CX-3. As a multi-keyboardist for years, It's about time I had a real Combo Organ sound. No more thin synthesizer "hammondesque" sounds! I carried a B3 for Procol Harum in 95' It was a beast, sounded great but broke down every other show. Wish I had 1 or 2 of these then...

having played B3 for over 20 years(I owned 2 of them)...you get used to that classic sound...tried all the other clones and the VK7 was the closest to my ears although it still had that digital sheen to it...then I test drove the new CX3 at MEGAWATT PRO AUDIO in Omaha and became a confirmed believer...this board is the real deal...from Jimmy Smith to John Lord, it covers all the bases...the chorus/vibrato is spot on, the overdrive is fat and greasy...percussion is identical...the leslie is thick and churglin'...I spent a lot of time playing this machine and its time to whip out the credit card...my wife will be pissed...call Mike at MEGAWATT (402-733-6645) for more info...they are great people and know their stuff...this organ kicks butt...

Had just about every emulator on the market starting with a Crumar T1-B, a CX3, circa 1979, VK1, VK7,DMI-64, OB3, XB-2 version 1, XK-2 and now the CX3, 2000 to which I'll probably stop here. This unit is good, the best stand alone sound for classic overdriven rock Cmon, the reason most people will gig with an emulator is to replace both the B3 AND the Leslie which is at least 50% of the classic sound. I found the XK-2 great except the overdrive was horrible[ a disgraceful transistor saturation sound] and yeah, stoneage gearheads will argue with a real leslie or a motion sound product it solves everything....Yes, Ive tried it and Yes it sounded great but on the same token.. they all did... which leaves the true stand alone winner...The CX3 2000! It has the sound and keyboard action which really inspires one to play, with real tube overdrive emulation [which has been available from every DSP modeled amp company for the past 3 years] and who has a wheelbrake simulation that rips? Thats the bottom line folks isn't it? A *single* beef...construction with the classic KORG cheap pressboard bottom..and all that simulated wood... how about a cleaner updated non B3 case? Still, the highest recommendation, no excuses required, winner hands down for Rock & Roll.

Bought the CX3 yesterday. As I already have a Roland VK7 I found this organ quite easy to adapt to. I fell it's better than the VK7 though the Roland is good too. the Leslie simulator on the CX3 is much better and less warbly and nauseating on fast than the VK7. Also, the fact that the crummy orchestral voices (present and cheesy on the VK7) are absent on the Korg is good. They've made a true dedicated organ. I like the ability to switch between preset sounds and drawbar setting 1 and 2 on the fly. I already reprogrammed the left hand drawbar settings on all but the "ex" presets (which I feel are a waste by the way)and this way you have the equivalent of 3 sets of drawbars for the right hand (preset, drawbar1, and drawbar2). The action which I've heard people talk aboutis not that much of a problem for me having grwon up on real B3's that can be kind of quick when they get a little worn. Still, I'm going to have to figure out how to disable the quick response function.
