    After looking at a few M3 pics, I suspect the legs on that MB3 are probably pine hardware store table legs. All the real M3 legs have bun feet and different tooling. That's probably why he painted it. It's still cute, though.

        yes, I include yours in that class. Or was that a controller only, without the TG?


        My current (almost finished) project is a controller. It will run VB-3 on some yet undetermined micro SBC hardware.

        The last actual chop I built was my experimental aluminum modular jobbie.

          no. it's a portabilised T-100.


          Eric, you disappoint me. The Porta-B is an L-100. You played mine back in AHMW2003 and it was ballsier than a T will ever be.

            People you need to go to the Gym, for me at this moment that wegith is not a problem. Fake B3 sound is a problem . ...
            A good clone through a real Leslie doesn't sound fake. It sounds better than a lot of real Hammonds, which vary a lot, depending on care vs. abuse and other things. Also, at a big venue where a Leslie needs to be miked and fed through the PA, the clones can sound better than a very good Hammond/Leslie. Many big-name acts carry a Ventilator (Leslie simulator) for just that reason.

            Regardless, it's usually not just a matter of whether we're in shape. One usually also needs the help of band members to load/unload, and that can be a stopper. I do know one small, slightly buit guy in his 30's who gigs an unchopped B3 & Leslie and does it all himself. He uses a Roll-R-Carry (totally necessary for gigging any non-chopped Hammond) and drives a full-sized van, and has worked out a method.

            In any case, unless you've tweaked a good clone, played it through a real Leslie, and compared it to a real Hammond, you have no idea how fake it sounds. Maybe give it a try without already having your mind made up.

            Finally, many of us HAVE gigged with the heavy stuff, sonny boy, and we know what we're talking about in that regard.

              does it have tubes?

              i'm sorry man, but the only real difference between the L and the T is tubes. they're almost the same organ.

                  Yes the L and Porta-B has tubes.

                  However the Porta-B has all 91 tonewheels wired in, whereas the L doesn't. The reason is the Porta-B has a tab that links the pedal tones to the lower manual.

                    which makes the Porta-B even better than either of them i'll bet.

                    did that connector on yours between the top and bottom ever give you any gruff?

                          I'd say an M3 or a Porta-B...The Porta-B seems really cool, but the diving-board keys kind of annoy me. Not enough to be a deal-breaker (my M100 that's hooked up to my Leslie has them...need to have that connection moved over to the M3), but I still definitely prefer the waterfall keys. They're less dangerous.
                          Pigpen said it was OK!

                              Wuss. I've been using the Porta-B since 1981 and still have the scars to prove it
