Been playing the Hammond Organ for 50 years and it's true today as it was back then, there is nothing that sounds like a real B3. Why settle for an imitation? Love to work on your song to give it that big Hammond sound.
Get the classic sound of a real Hammond B3 organ on your recordings. In 1967, I traded mom's piano for a used Hammond B3. 50 years later, there is still nothing that can fake the sound of a real Hammond and a Leslie. Now you can have that sound professionally recorded on your rock, blues, or country song. More samples below on my Soundcloud Playlist.
I use three microphones on the Leslie to capture the sound of this vintage instrument, the real deal B3/122 set up...not an electronic reproduction or a clone or a plug in.
I'll send you an MP3 mixed with your backing track for approval. After you approve, you'll get three dry wav stems, upper rotor horn track using a Shure SM 57, lower rotor track using a Shure Beta 52, and a room track using a Lewitt LCT 441 so you can blend the individual tracks to suit your taste and recording style.
Price is for a song five minutes or less. I don't cut and paste so if you're more than five minutes, let's talk about it first. I include two revisions but that's not set in stone. My average price is around $80.00 but that wasn't a choice in the drop down box.
And just for clarification, despite the category, I don't do any piano or synth work. Just the Hammond B3.
I'd love to hear about your project. Click the 'Contact' button above to get in touch.

This was my first time working with Steve and it was one of the best experiences I've had on SoundBetter. He came up with terrific Hammond parts for my song and recorded them perfectly. He is by far one of the most professional musicians I've worked with here, creating a "let's work together and create a great song" vibe. I cannot recommend him enough.
