  • Ferrofish B4000+

    I bill myself as a pianist (not keyboard player) but… I've been playing pipe organ for four years now and I think I could adapt pretty quickly to B3 in a band.

    And this is on local KIJIJI and I'm thinking it might work for me. Run it from my piano. I know about the action issues piano vs organ. He's asking $475 US.

    . I say stay away from the Ferrofish. I have only read negative comments RE it's not-so-Hammond-like tone. Best bet IMO, for a self-contained organ module, would be a used Roland VK8-m or Nord Electro 2 rack, although either would be $100-200 more expensive. Keyboard Partners has a highly spoken-of HX3 module, but unless you already have a B3 clone with drawbars you would also need to spring for their drawbar controller (DB-c), which is an additional $340 if bought with the module. Newest version of HX3 is the Mark 5, $765 from Diversi USA. They may have a refurbished earlier version, Mark 4, available at $500 (One-year warranty).

      I'm not affiliated with Divirsi or Keyboard Partners, just a customer waiting on delivery of an HX3 Mark 5 and DB-c.

    I wouldnt recommend a Ferro Fish, they sound subpar. But if you are sold on buying one, here is one which is MUCH less expensive than $620:

        How much money are you willing to spend on a module? Depending on your spending bandwidth we could make some recommendations.
