      A while ago, my dad and I were talking, as most of the time, about music. At a certain moment, I mentioned that I was thinking to buy a Leslie speaker because that’s what I find is lacking in all the organ samples. My crazy old man just called me to schedule Monday because he bought a Hammond B3000 (Not a B3, Sorry for the clickbait title : ) with a Leslie speaker! He said, “It’s yours if you promise to learn to play it before I am gone.” I said to him “Dad, I haven’t played a piano piece for more than 10 years. On top of that, playing a Hammond is not really like playing the piano. Yet, I think I will take the deal… and start practicing.

        Congratulation! I started with playing organ and its such fun! Never had a real Hammond, but one day I had the chance to play on a real B3 (to follow the Clickbait ;-). As I started playing, my first thought was "My Emulator gives me the same sound". Then I pushed the volume pedal ... Oh my lord, haha. This is more than an instrument or a sound. Its like riding a T-Rex that is spiting fire. Wish you all the fun in the world with it!
