  • Brent Mydland tone

    Where are all my Dead head friends?😂 Would anyone happen to have a good drawbar settings to replicate Brent Mydland 80s era Grateful Dead hammond sound? Thanks in advance!

    Yeah. He used a LOT of drive. I think he used to pull 88800000 or 888800000 with 3 harmonic. Especially on the blues stuff, like Rooster, Never Trust a Woman. Probably similar but at lower volume with Bertha type stuff. Use that as jumping off point.

      Tampa Sundome October 1985 was my first show! Kinda like hammond organs after that. I was bitten by the bug and started following them whenever I could. Brent could really get the crowd going. Peace

        Late to this post! Brent often used lower drawbar settings like 8686...and might pull the remaining draw bars out to 1 or so. Then perhaps most importantly he used the C2 chorus setting and turned percussion on to the second harmonic, soft setting. This is very important to get his percussive, almost haphazard style of playing.

          The leslie was closely mic'd on live shows giving it a distinct sound in itself.

            If you really wanted his sound you'd almost have to have the organ he played on. It's hard sometimes duplicating sound even with the right drawbar settings.

              Nothing to add, just that this is the sound I have been chasing too! The Brent sound really got me looking into hammonds and leslies.
