Excuse my ignorance, but do they still make the B3 anymore?

Hammond Organ Company went out of business in the 80s. They stopped making the B3 model in 1974.

The Hammond name was bought by a Japanese company called Suzuki... not the motorcycle company... same name, different company. They started making a series of clones using digital sampling technology. They released the XB3 in the mid-90s, which was a full sized, B3-like organ using digital technology. It didn't sound very good. There are some Jimmy McGriff records where he's playing it.

Either last year or two years ago they released the New B3, which is a full sized replica of the B3 using advanced digital technology. Supposedly it is pretty good, but at around $20,000, no musician can afford one. Joey DeFrancesco plays one because he has a sponsorship with them, but that's about it. They sound pretty good.

When I was in middle school and early high school, this guy was my hero. Check out his L-100 in the back, with what looks like an ARP modular on top:

One of my big rock influences in the mid '80s. And not just itchie, but the whole band. Gillian, one of my fave rock singers. Lord, a great rock keyboard player, best on the Hammond and Ian Paice, a real kick ass rock drummer. And Glover knew the pedal point!

Yeppers... A Leslie 122 amp. It uses two 6550s, two 12AU7s and a OC3 regulator.

Thanks! That's about how I imagined it would look. 25 watts?

.25watts? No, it puts out 40watts into 16ohm.

Powerful little beast!
