From 74 to 76 Winston and I played B-3's at two competing after hours restaurants. 1 to 4:00 AM. It was my most enjoyable time in the business. We got all the niteclub folks, musicians in for breakfast...all the night people.

I left the Sportsman in 1977 and, after my hotel gig, became a Walls customer at Comers, his after hours home, many nights a week.

Played with him at Up Jump The Devil and O'Keefs, two now defunct jazz clubs.

What a monster!

I think you folks are all confused. The Hammond is easy to emulate. It's the Leslie that gives it that sound. You can phase shift and doppler all you want but it won't make up for throwing the sound around the room and bouncing it off everything.

I agree, Tom. I keep a 147 RV going with a B-3 at a regular country club job. It stays there, thankfully. Same B and leslie I played after hours in the 70's.

Just hooked a 145 up to an old 1949 M I restored at about 500% more than it's worth.

gotta love the doppler..

I liked the sound so well that I did hundreds of one nighters in the 70's and 80's with a Gibson 355, 145 RV (needed the RV for better sounding guitar), with a separate adapter/foot controlled speed controller. With heavy strings, you could play a really acceptable bass line/chord combination. Used a funky little drum machine and a 585 hi impedance mike into an old Standell head with "no name" cabinets. Always liked the Lonnie Mack Leslie sound, followed by Three Dog Night and Stevie Ray, who often used a Leslie. Great for guitar.

Occasionally, I'll still use the guitar/Leslie combo for a studio job.

Again, ya gotta love the doppler...

Tom, I may be wrong all these years, but I thought that throwing the sound around IS the doppler effect?
