That's actually an A100, which is a B3 in a 'home style' case with built-in amp, speakers & reverb. They used to be a great bargain till everyone figured out that they sound and play exactly like a B3 (if you add the right kind of Leslie). When you find out how expensive the full sized genu-wine Hammond tonewheel/Leslie combo have become, you might look into one of the Hammond spinets, such as the M3, which is widely regarded (except by S&TG) as the best of that bunch. And don't forget the Leslie. (spam: Hammond M3 with Model 225 Toob Amp Leslie, $600. $2600 shipped.) :lol:
I want one of those. hammond B3, you say? Hmmm. Have to check'em out...

dude i love Marley. what i resent is that fact that most people don't look past Marley when it comes to reggae, and the general ignorance in regard to reggae of the public allows a genre like "dubstep" with "wobble bass" to be popular while having nothing to do with actual dub or Jah Wobble. i resent the fact that when you're playing a reggae gig in a college town for a bunch of entitled trustafarians you can't do anything other than play Marley covers or you get tomatoes thrown at you, and if you play "Simmer Down" they complain because they don't recognise it since it's not on Legend. i resent idiots like that street musician in Flagstaff who was butchering "No Woman No Cry" on acoustic guitar, and when i asked him if he played any reggae tunes other than Marley he said "what's the point, it's all garbage but him and Sublime." and it's not like he's the only mouth-breathing idiot that thinks reggae starts with Marley and ends in Sublime and everything else is garbage. i resent that jamaican music isn't more respected by american black music musicians. "trad ska" should be just as important a style to learn as "latin" or "ballad" to the working jazz musician, and reggae shouldn't be treated as a backwater genre. i resent that reggae, dub, and ska lovers all can't come together in togetherness unless they are record collectors. the hard-core listeners love all this stuff ... anyway, you say Marley is the backbone. Mento is the backbone. Mento came before ska, ska came before rocksteady, and rocksteady came before reggae. could you actually look Don Drummond or Ernest Ranglin in the face and tell them that Marley is the backbone of everything? as far as wether this guy can bubble or not, i don't really care. he earned his stripes with this transcription. i'm not trying to bust your chops here, i'm just explaining myself since you asked. you're one of the few people i communicate with regularly that loves jamaican music more than i do, and i know you understand what i'm talking about. think about every time you've seen a bunch of dirty hippies at a jam band festival butcher a song you love and how angry it made you feel. (and in my case their bass player's girlfriend insinuated that my modular synthesiser was just a bunch of blinking lights for show and that i was just miming my completely improvised set.) pardon me for posting interestingly for a change. i'll go back to being boring again.
why would you resent Marley's dominance of reggae he's not done anything since 1980????? his music is really the backbone of everything. Roots and culture reggae is the toughest to play . I am seen plenty of musicians the can't touch marley Marley stuff. If that guy can bubble that will really be something.
