Is the Hammond B3 a synth? We think so. The drawbars control the harmonic makeup of the sound—sounds like a synth. These B3 drawbar settings should work for any Hammond tonewheel organ with drawbars: A-100, C3, even “M” and “L” series, plus all the clones as well (Korg CX-3, etc.). Use these as a starting point and change while playing. (Especially leslie speed of course.)
The highest drawbar at 8 gives it a bright presence. Add leslie on high to bring it home.
