I bought this unit new in 1984 or so and never found anything better to date

until I got the real Hammond C-3 to compare. Still a great unit when you

compare 30 lbs to 450 lbs! The drawbar foldback is not correct even for a simple registration of 888000000.

The 16' bass notes are not folded at all. Percussion is routed with the rest of

the signal path so it cannot easily be separated from the chorus or other effects.

Rotary speaker emulation is thin but I use a Leslie 122 anyway. The SM304 chips do not provide enought resolution and introduce &quot;beating&quot; to

contend with. Overdrive is very &quot;Solid State&quot; and crispy but there are other

ways to get &quot;growl&quot; with external effects. An equalizer is needed to roll off audio at 6K or so to emulate a real Hammond.

Without it, it tend to be brite and shrill. If you like Emerson, this is your keys. The percussion can drive spikes thru

your head and the click control is convincing.

I used to own a Hammond B3, BCV, D2,and an M3, I also owned a Korg CX3,

and, pound for pound, the CX3 was the winner, disregarding weight I have no

choice other than to vote HAMMOND. The Korg was sitting in my closet for

about a year, when a friend of mine who is an excellent keyboard player,

called and asked if I was interested in selling it, well I charged a

token price of $100 US dollars. The leslie effect in the unit is lame, but he hooked it up to some kind

of korg leslie pedal with four switches and a Yorkville Sound Bloc100K

keyboard amp, and man O' man did it scream. who needs a B?

4 out of 5 with out an external leslie effect - 5 out of 5 with one.

I purchased this little screamin puppy in 1984 pumped it through a leslie

147 with of coarse the floor stlyle pre amp. At that time the closes thing

to a hammond b series ogran. felt the upper register c4 and up not quite

right there. Of coarse no chorus vibrato there version of the leslie was

a joke. all and all using the setting of 88842 was one of my favorites

with the third harmonic percussion and some slight overdrive a brian

auger favorite setting. the leslie no doubt made this organ sound fantastic

if I could get a hold of a bx3 with midi Id be in seventh heaven. I guess

I settle with my voce v3 and leslie 147, does it get any better..............
