Sounds remarkably similar to the Nord C1...all that's missing are the digital drawbars.

I miss everything about my old 1957 B3 except the weight.

I think this new B-3 weighs about 290 lbs...quite a weight loss from the over 400 lbs of the old one...but still pretty heavy.

Pretty cool nevertheless.

Donny, there's no way you're "going to the devil"...you're too much of a gentleman.

I agree...it isn't a Hammond.

I think the difference is partly the use of non-tube Leslies in the demos of the new the digital B. Just sounds too clean.

Met Tony and heard him at the Summer NAMM in Indianapolis. Good guy, great player, but he "ain't no Jimmy Smith".

Russ.....
Tony evolves thru the legend himself....but there's no denying his excitement & exuberance when he plays...
there are many many great B3 Jazz players to enjoy...I just like Tony Monocos way of doing it. Although the D-B3 does allow a better flexibility in todays modern age of computer technology....I have to agree the original B3 is Da Goods!

Stay well

Donny, I enjoy Tony, too. He's a good proponent of the art form.
