actually this is not always true. I've heard plywood topped guitars that sound better than solid tops. You have to use your ears and your judgement. While my plywood top won't age and sound better in a few years like a solid top, it sounded way better than any solid tops 2-3 times its price range. I'm happy with the sound and I won't lose sleep knowing it won't age with time.

It's an organ alright... but no pedals yet (excluding an expression pedal). Hell, I couldn't even afford a speaker for it (50w Leslie costs $1500!), so for now I'm just using headphones. I'll get bass pedals eventually, they just hook up via MIDI.

This is a picture of the identical instrument I played while on the road - the legendary Hammond B3. For amplification, I used both a Leslie 122 and 925.

...AWESOME!!!! screw violins, i'd absolutely kill for your Korg CX3, or Hammond XK3, or Roland VK8. better yet, a dual manual version of one of those. better yet, the awesome Nord C1 dual manual. no, no, better yet, a real Hammond "New B3" or "B3 Portable". the Hammond organ is such a beautiful instrument, with such a beautiful found. all i have is a nice midi controller and the excellent Native Instruments B4-II. it sounds like the real deal, but there's no substitute for real waterfall keys, a pedalboard, and real drawbars. you're a lucky man. my lust for great digital pianos and organs is the only thing holding my head-fi spending back. thanks for the pictures too, the Korg CX3 looks ugly in most other pictures.

good luck learning how to play it, especially with the pedalboard; it's a difficult instrument to master. i can barely do more than the part on "Have You Ever Seen The Rain?" by CCR.

edit: the above poster posted an image of the "New B3", i do believe.

909: that's a very beautiful sax
buddha: i LOVE the bird on the fretboard!
md1032: lee oskar has awesome harmonicas. if i ever pick diatonic up again they've got my money.

i think this is, by far, the best page in this thread yet, thanks to the big variety.

I just grabbed that photo off some random internet site. My Hammond B3 was purchased new in 1972 along with the two Leslie cabinets. As far as technology has come, I have yet to hear a digital keyboard replicate the sound of a B3+Leslie.

Here's one of my beloved axes that I recently put up for sale. This shot is from the store that has it on consignment.

It's still mine until it sells. If anyone wants it, make me an offer.

Hmmm... May as well post my stash.


Tower of power! Loads of instruments that I can't name... You may have to tilt your head for this one.


Kawhai piano. Lovely wood. Really really really loud.


Some Japanese instruments (don't know the names)


Sorry about the blurry pic. These are some random woodwind instruments from around the world somewhere >_>

We got some more too... Like some random chinese mouth-organ thing which is like impossible to play and about 50 harmonicas, and even an old Yamaha DX7 Synthesizer...
