Al Kooper organ sound

Postby Totmusic » 26 Feb 2012, 15:08

Hi, it's time to brush of the dust from my NSEX and go to work again :thumbup:
We're gonna do some covers of old Dylan songs, Positively 4th street, and others.
I need the soft, quiet, hi-pitched, organ sound that Al Kooper used in those wonderful recordings,
but I just can't get it right :oops:. If anyone can help me, it would be greatly appreciated!

Thnx
:keyboard2:

Hello Totmusic,
drawbarsettings.com has it as this:

In Mainstage2 it sounds close, but it needs the 16' pushed back to 6 on my Hammond to sound closer.
This webpage has good info on how to use the drawbars (drawbuttons):

Cheers, Hanon

Did you know...?

Turning on a B3 is a bit like starting a jet engine and isn't as straightforward as turning on a Nord:
Al Kooper said that if the Hammond wasn't already turned on at the famous Highway 61 Revisited sessions he wouldn't have been able to play "Like a Rolling Stone"...He had never played a Hammond before and didn't know how to turn it on!

That's very interesting, I didn't know that.
I knew that Kooper had limited experience with the organ, being primarily a guitar player.
Thanks.
Cheers, Hanon

I didn´t now about Coopers B3, beeing not properly turned on, but you can here that he is unexperieced.
That´s why he´s using the famous formula "less is more" wich makes it so classical.
I keep tuning & tweking and I´ll present the result when it´s good enough :keyboard:
