Does anyone have experience with these? How do they compare soundwise to a hammond? Will they/this specific model work for blues rock? I.E Spencer Davis Group, think of the amazing organ sound heard in Gimme Some Lovin'. The heaviest sound I would use is a Deep Purple organ sound. I listen to a lot of Blues Rock from the 60's and 70's and alot of Sam Roberts and Wilco.

kinda. I have to pay 200+ to move it. BUt I'm worried it won't sound "heavy" enough for the 60's blues/rock and 70's sound I'm going after.

Well, what sort of organ is it? A real tonewheel? Or is it a digital emulation? Will the seller let you try it out first?

Weeaboo is slang for someone way into contemporary Japanese culture. (Anime, Manga)

Kawaii is the Japanese word for "cute", and weeaboos love to use it.

No idea. Check out that link I posted maybe that will help. ANd I could but I'd rather not drive 30 minutes out to try it. The movers can swing by tomorrow too so it would be easiest. I just want to be assured I'm making a good choice. Which is why I'm looking for some experienced people to describe the sound.

Mic it through a Mesa dual rec?

Oh.

Have you tried checking youtube for clips of it or any similar organs? Other than that, the only way to tell would probably be trying it out

Why would driving 30 minutes be too much of a hassle if it's to make sure you're spending 200+ bucks wisely? I doubt many people here have much experience with organs.

hahaha putting it through the mesa would be hilarious. And I would try it out but it would be really inconvenient. I live in the country so everyones kinda distanced.

It's also a Japanese company that makes pianos and keyboards. With one "i." They USED to make some really cool synths.

I found the manual for it. It doesn't look like it has drawbars, so it's not going to sound like a Hammond, that's for sure.

Here's what you should do. There are a lot of free Hammond simulators out there that are very good. There's also Native Instruments' B4, which is amazing, but costs a shitload. Get a MIDI controller and use a software Hammond instead. You'll probably need a VST host, so either get a standalone VST host or a DAW. A good free DAW is Reaper.

THanks a ton. I thought it has drawbars though? It says so on that link I posted earlier. If it does would it sound more like a hammond?

If it's only gonna be 200 bucks I'd say go for it. There's nothing wrong with having a distinct sound that might not be as heavy as other organs such as a Hammond.
I can honestly say I have really been far even as decided to use even go want to do look more like.

Okay, so it actually does. It also has presets, though. That's where I got confused. I suppose it might sound a bit like a Hammond.
