Knock yourself out. I'm an old organ player myself and I cut my teeth on a B3. In my younger days when I was strong and stupid, I hauled around a M and 147 for gigging. I actually liked the model H a little better than the B. I had to haul a trailer to the gigs even in the Michigan winter. I also love that sound but not enough to do that anymore. All the arrangers have organs that are good enough givin the alternative. I don't like the Leslie sim on the G70. Givin the weight of the G70 I'm thinking of the s910. How are the organs on it? I've been told that after a certain distance away from a Leslie that a sim sounds just as good. I find that hard to believe though.
On a different note, I'd love to get to the Maritime Provinces sometime in my life. I have friends that came here from PEI.
I had a B-3 with two Leslie 147RV for many years...I had a 57 Chev Suburban V8 with Hydramatic, that I used to haul it around in...of course, it was only because I was in a band and I had help lugging it...certainly couldn't do solo gigs. I had an M-3 for a short while, before I got the B-3, but the reason I got the latter, was because the former's 44 note manuals were just too short.
The organs in the S910 are pretty good...the SA Jazz Rotary
and SA Rock Rotary
were my favorites, as well as the drawbar based organs (although there were only buttons up/down)...the Tyros4 has sliders which are really nice. The sim is very good, but certainly not up to Ventilator, or even the XK3 (non C).
I very nearly bought the S910, but got a great deal on the Tyros4, plus, I just fell in love with the sound.
My recently retired Yamaha boss and his wife were from PEI, and my step brother lives there as well, just outside Charlottetown...I've done lots of clinics on the island...it's a lovely place in the summer, but can be brutal in the winter.
The sim, through a PA sounds like a mic'd Leslie, so having the real deal isn't necessary, at least for me...and, it's heavy.
After carrying around a G-70, the PSR-S910 will feel like it's made out of balsa wood...are you sure you wouldn't miss the 76 note keyboard? One thing for certain, the Yamaha support network, as in forums and third party help, is hard to beat.
