Hammond B3 MK2 Organ

The New B-3mk2 is the latest incarnation of the “King Of Instruments”. Every facet, every detail, every nuance of the classic B-3 inside and out has been painstakingly replicated using the most sophisticated digital technology. No matter which “branch” of the Hammond family you are from-Gospel, Jazz, Pop, Rock, Blues, Soul or Country; you will find the touch, feel and sound of the NEW B-3mk2 as familiar as any B-3 you’ve ever played. 

 

The Hammond B3 is reborn

Since its introduction in 1955, the Hammond B-3 has become the essential performance tool for the world’s great keyboard players. The instantly recognizable b-3 sound is essential in the world of popular music, while no concert stage would seem complete without a B-3’s imposing wooden cabionet.

Now, for the first time, Hammond has exactly replicated the original B-3 design specification with the introduction of the New B-3.

The unique B-3 sound is reproduced by a revolutionary new sound generator system which recreates all of the idiosyncrasies of the tone-wheel generator.

Two 61 note manuals with deluxe square-front keys allow for the essential performance charateristics of the Hammond masters. Four complete sets of Harmonic Drawbars and latching programmable Preset Keys allow total ease of set up.

The Drawbar Foldback feature subtly affects the overall sound, while the all-new Direct Analog Keying mechanism creates the famous “Key Click” an essential component of the B-3 character. Sound dynamics are controlled by an exact copy of the original B-3 expression curve incorporated in the new instrument’s Expression Pedal.

Only Hammond has the qualifications and knowledge to accurately reproduce the look, sound and feel of the legendary B-3. Now the B-3 is reborn.
