    I've tried plenty of leslie clones, univibes,and chorus pedals for a rotating speaker sound, but I think I am chasing the wrong thing. I LOVE the organ sound on the Spencer Davis Group's "Gimmie Some Lovin". I think it is a Hammond B3, but I might be wrong. The pedals I've tried (H&K Rotosphere, Visual Sound H20, Fulltone Deja Vibe, EHX Wiggler, either seem to have a brittle high end or miss the low frequency chug.

    Does anyone make a close approximation of a B3?
    Let me know if you need clarification of what I'm trying to get across.

    My buddy plays that lick with an EHX Micro POG and a Deja Vibe, and it sounds AMAZING!!! He plays all the B3 classics like this, and it sounds exactly like an organ. Give it a shot!!!

    Micro pog plus some sort of modulation..phaser, vibe, etc.. Or, just the regular Pog alone will do it, but it's quite large.

    What settings are used to get that from the regular POG?

    Roland Guitar Synth does it.

    I've been looking for something similar. When our on again / off again keyboard player is absent, I play that part. I've just been using a Marshall Guv'nor 2 with the gain most of the way up, and heavy chorus. I also turn to partially face the amp to get the controlled octave/feedback. It isn't perfect, but the general idea is there.

    This from last Saturday (one of the last songs and voices were SHOT, lol).

    Fun song.
