The Awesome Hammond XB-3 with 122 XB Leslie.

DRB® sampling technology captures the sound and feel of the incomparable B-3. The idea of 'sampling a B3' has been around for a long time. But just sampling and adding Drawbars is not enough. Hammond has also recreated those idiosyncrasies of the electro-mechanical tone wheel generator which have eluded all previous digital sound producing systems.

This new, virtual Tonewheel Generator, flawlessly generates the pure harmonic sound of its predecessor, the B-3. And then goes on to add other variations as the Drawbar foldbacks at the top and bottom octaves, the variances in key click, and an actual internal 'tube' for the effect of overdriving a tube amplifier.

The total effect of the XB-3 is the look, feel and sound of the legendary B-3
