Hey Don, I just listened to  your cut on youtube... That is serious!! Loved it.. I tried the SK2 but I am loving my Korg BX3..  I am using it on gGood Morning Heartaches on my home page here..

Hi Frank,

I am a great fan of the SK2 by Hammond. Is has the guts of the new B3 with all the tonal sweetness. However, you give up the connivence of four sets of drawbars. I gladly gave that up for the joy of carrying a 35 pound Hammond monster. 

I used it for my last blues album a couple of years ago. Forgive my self promotion, but this link will take you to my audio page that will allow you to hear the organ in a studio setting. I did not use any filters. The organ was plugged directly into the recorder.

I hope this helps.

-Don W.

Hey Vince, Where did you get the midi encoder for your midi bass pedals? I use a nord C1 and have an extra set of hammond pedals that I would like to convert.

I built a set of MIDI bass pedals with an old set of Hammond pedals (blonde finish of course) and a good bit of research on the internet. It was one of those projects I started and never finished in my garage for several years. But I finally got off my butt and put it together. They are fabulous, but it was a lot of work. Roland wants somewhere around $3000 for theirs. There used to be a guy on e-bay who sold them for around $500.00 (less than it cost to build mine) and if I hadn't already accumulated all my parts, I would have gladly bought a set from him. I haven't seen them on e-bay for a long time, but I haven't been looking lately. I have a Hammond XK-2on top of a Roland RD-700 on a Ultimate Support stand. that I had to extensively modify to make the pedals fit. I even made a bench out of U.S. pieces and plywood. Then my wife and I upholstered it for comfort.

Bass players hate me, too...LOL

At least we play in REAL TIME and do not SEQUENCE to put a fellow musician out of work!!!

Jaijai, what a wonderful mission you've undertaken to create such a place for artistic minds to meet and share their hearts. A place to renew faded determinations, and revive lessened momentums. A place to display our wares and reconfirm to one another that we actually are on the right track.

I commend you, Jaijai, for caring so much that you created this castle of the heart for all of us. I want to share my praise for all of the new friends as well as old friends that I've met and will meet here in our castle. Here we can garnish the where-with-all, the strength, the conviction, and the selflessness through our symbiosis, to share our gift to the world with an unbiased agenda.

My mentor, Daisaku Ikeda says of art: "A beautiful flower delights and refreshes the hearts of all people equally, no matter what soil it grows in. That is the power of beauty. The same is true of great art. It is this spirit that the German poet Heinrich Heine sang of when he wrote that once the peapod bursts open, the sugar peas inside are for everyone to enjoy."

Let's be audacious, my friends!
