Organs have the best vibrato of any instrument. Muttering

Listen to Curly Chalker's "Big Hits on Big Steel". He plays through a Leslie on several songs. Rusty Young killed it on the early Poco albums with a Leslie and a Wa-Wa pedal.

Mine is currently stored away and rarely gets used, (it's an age thing), but if I were to get it out and give it a good polishing, it would look like this,

I vaguely remember a groaner story in the early 1960s about a nun who chased a priest around the church. You guessed it, she finally caught him by the organ.

Gotta give her credit, though. She plays the E9 and C6 keyboards at the same time. Whoa!

Dave (Baby) Cortez had a Happy Organ. Still, it's a classical oldie! (Got to figure out to link it in).

Notice the EHX B9, the Neo Ventilator w/half-moon and the wah pedal.... Works for me. Technically I don't have a B3, it's really an MCI3. Now if I can just get Rusty to show me his chops! Of course Barbara D is the real deal.

Quentin... It would sound like a steel through a Leslie. We have to get organ-like harmonics and drawbars to be more convincing. Then there's that thing about playing organ-like pads percussively and not playing steel licks.

...one of 'em like this one. Not funny though...except for the way I play it. Laughing

I also have an Alesis synth midi rig 49 controller that has the GM organs beside an old SE70 half rack processor with all the rotary parameters you could want. I also use that one with pedal steel and expression pedal for ramping speeds up and down. Great sounding little machine with the best canned sims I've heard. [The little cigarette pack sized box in the switching panel there is a Sonuus G2M guitar controller.]


Maybe we can revive this thread again in another 8 yrs.

Sounds like some of you play the "Upright Baldwin" too much.

Years ago where I attended church we had an organ. The lady pushed the pedal down pretty heavy. It clashed with steel guitar as well. It just give me a bad taste for organ music after putting up with that excessive volume. This is not a slam but they are used a lot at funerals. That being said, I have played my steel guitar at funerals as well. I have seen some very talented individuals play organs and I even like to hear a pipe organ too. Sorry, I have no picture of one but for those who play and own one that is your right.

If you've ever noticed Paul Shaffer's Hammond B3 on the Letterman show, they covered up the organ made it look like a planter box. It appears it's for the express reason that organs remind people of funerals where the B3 looks like a coffin.


Note Bluesbrother-trombonist Tom Malone in the purple suit as mainstay of the Late Show band.

Paul before the planter box on the Late Show

Why did Bach have so many children?

His organ had no stops.

My organ pales in comparison to the others pictured, but I want to play too.
It's a Yamaha PSR series which does a fair imitation of an organ. Possibly a kidney.

I used to work at Robbin's Music Center in Huntsville, Alabama when I was about 18. The owner, Jack Robbins, was a musician and played a lot with some of the Muscle Shoals crowd. So they hauled a B3 around. As an employee of the store, I served as a roadie whenever they had a gig. We had the special dollie, but nothing made that thing easy to move.

So let's see... I grew up handling large organs... and after all these years, Mom... I'm still not blind. Whoa!
