Tech Talk from Jon Hammond Using Vintage Fender Amplifiers Live XK-1 and XK-3 Series Organ

Organist Accordionist Jon Hammond says: “I have been using stock 1965 Fender vintage Band-Master piggyback amps and 1965 Fender Twin Reverb amp with factory JBL speaker option to power my XK-1 and XK-3 organs, also XB-2 prior to that. You can’t beat that combination on the band stand as a portable solution to the classic B3 Leslie combo (I own 2 B3’s, a 1965 and 1959 models with stock 122 and Bill Beer custom high-power Keyboard Products Leslie in flight cases) this sound has served me well for many years. I started playing professional gigs with a blonde 1964 Fender Band-Master I scored from Leo at Leo’s Music in Oakland CA with my electric Giulietti accordion. These amps are well suited to either accordion or Hammond organ by nature. In 1987 I had the good fortune to meet Leo Fender on the way back to USA from the Frankfurt Musikmesse, we had a lengthy discussion in Frankfurt Airport on this topic. Nobody has come up with a better more comfortable sound solution for my own taste yet, and the Hammond Suzuki engineers have done a wonderful job at recreating the sound and feel of the real deal Hammond organs with the XK series, and I still use my XB-2 organs on occasion also.”

Jon Hammond is a member of AFM Local 802 and Local 6 Musicians Union, ASCAP Composer Publisher

Jon Hammond To Record Sessions On His Original Nakamichi 550 Dual-Tracer Portable Recorder

January 12, 2010

Jon Hammond To Record Sessions On His Original Nakamichi 550 Dual-Tracer Portable Recorder

Hammond says: I bought the Nakamichi 550 new in 1976 at Harvey Electronics on W. 45th St. in NYC for $550, “They didn’t call it the Nakamichi 550 for nothing!”

The machine is now being overhauled by California Historical Radio Society Vice President Scott Robinson, he is an expert Engineer and Dolby specialist. We are very excited about resurrecting the legendary recorder with state of art new microphones from Sennheiser and Superlux to record my upcoming sessions with studio drummer Bernard Purdie, we have a show coming up at the Winter NAMM trade show in Anaheim January 15th on the Hilton-Muzeo stage.
Nothing like the fat sound of the 550 with it’s unique “Blend Channel” 3rd mic gives it a dimensional sound that is still unsurpassed in digital portable recording machines.
Jon also uses the Nakamichi in the field to record segments of his daily radio broadcast HammondCast on KYOURADIO on the CBS Radio Network now in 5th year, best 550 I ever spent says Hammond.

Bernard Purdie and Jon Hammond at Local 802 Musicians Union

We played a 5 night run at Mikell’s with my mint condition Hammond B3 organ as Jon Hammond and The Late Rent Session Men
Bernard Purdie and Jon Hammond at Local 802 Musicians Union

I still have the B3 and custom built Bill Beer Keyboard Products Super Leslie in road cases for tours of Rolling Stones type epic proportions, but since it won’t fit in to a taxi cab and or commercial airline situation, I tour with either my Hammond XK-1 or Hammond XK-3 organ and when I am on the West Coast to complete the vintage sound I use my 1965 Fender Band-Master piggyback amplifier with 2 x 12″ stock Jensen speakers, it really kicks ass, Mr. H Ohno at Suzuki Hammond did an incredible job of designing a portable organ that faithfully reproduces the famous Hammond sound, and the warm sound of Leo Fender‘s tube amps completes the system to my satisfaction. It blows a lot of people’s minds when they realize I’m not at the B3, but it has the same emotional impact, as I can see time after time when I play this rig in hospitals and nursing home situations.

What’s old is new and what’s new is old, I use the best of the new and the old to get the desired results.
