I love this one, too - the ANALOG, I am getting ready to sell her. Too many injuries and moving, just too many keys to move. I do have one for parts, a CX-3. If I don't sell it with the current BX-3, anyone interested?

Wowie Zowie , i play the original bx-3 , pot codes date it at 1980 , this thing is the best clone for the money half the size of a real b-3 and a quarter of the weight , and it sounds pretty damn close . i also have a hammond A-100 , just like a b-3 but with a sweeter vibrato/chorus and reverb , sadly though this never leaves my cave due to its mass . the bx-3 is also set up more like a very early hammond the bass goes all the way down intead of doing that final octave jump at the bottom like a b-3 , c-3, a-100 does , also no fold back :( but i dig that bass :) leslie simulation is good for headphones , how cool is that practice your b in your room on headphones :)wish it were stereo:( when playing in a live scene i use a motionsound protm3 , also a great clone , along with a late 60"s , Gibson Les Paul amp , ok before you squirm , let me explain , this not the little les paul practice amp , nor is it the really cool early 60"s combo amp , but the bastard child of Moog Music and Gibson . it comes in two parts/ the head witch is just a pre-amp , it is all solid state, most gain stages are transformer coupled , two channels 1. vol. tre. bass. pres. 2. vol. tre. bass. pres. vib. depth tremolo depth rate and reverb , , , , the bottom cabinet witch houses 2 15" full range james b. lansing speakers , and a 100 watt amplifier , this make for one hell of a organ amplifier , well back to the bx-3 ,

it also features vib/chor v1-v3 and c1-c3

pretty neato

any body got a broke one for parts , i love parts ,

funk it till it hertz, Nicholaus Green

This organ totally rules...the action is really close to my C-3, and the sound is can be dialed in to any Hammond that you like. It looks cool, and is heavy enough to take the smears without moving, yet light enough to move around without too much difficulty. Other than the CX-3, the Nord Electro is the only other clone that comes close...but for authenticity of feel as well as sound, the BX-3 rules supreme !!

I've had a BX-3 for about two months now (the new digital model, not the analog one from the 70's), and I love it.

At first glance, it looks a lot like a Hammond, if not quite as tall. It's a joy having the controls in the same location as the real deal. The sound is dead on; the Leslie simulation is the best I've heard, but I've disabled it in the programs I use, and run it through a real Leslie. It sounds and feels like I'm playing my old C3, but with only a fraction of the weight.

I can't emphasise enough how sweet the action is on this instrument. Even playing organ sounds on a synth keyboard isn't nearly as responsive. If you've ever played a Hammond, you'll like this action.

On the down side, it is only set up for two-manual work; no pedals. That isn't really a problem for me, since I'm in a rock band with a bass player, but for other types of gigs, a module of some sort would be needed if you want to use midi pedals.

Overall, I have no complaints. The programablility gives you the tools to emulate a wide variety of Hammonds and Leslies, in a package that isn't really any trouble to move around. I think I'm going to have a very long relationship with this machine.
