  • Leslie 3300 Reviews

    My buddy got a 3300 about 2 years ago for his C3 (equipped with a Trek II preamp). I've had the opportunity to hear him at a variety of venues, and also sit in, and I have to say, I'm not all that impressed. He's spent time with the EQ settings, but the unit just sounds boomy with very little high definition. At his current gig we brought in a 122 and honestly it was a joy to play the organ again. The 3300 has a lot of electronics stuffed into that little box and sometimes it seems the more complicated they make these things the more the end product drifts from the original design intended. Of course, all this is MHO. I'm just curious if others who have purchased a 3300 have experienced similar issues.
    Over the years: Hammond M3, BC, M102, B3, four X77s and three PR-40s, a Thomas Electra and a Celebrity, three Fender Rhodes, Roland HS-10, HP-2000, HP-600, RD-600, JV-880, a thing made by Korg (?), two Leslie 910s, 122, 257, 258, 247, two 142s, and three custom-built Leslies. Wow, way too much money spent!

    I've heard someone sub a 3300 in place of a 760, and I liked the 760 a lot better.
    I'm David. 'Dave' is someone else's name.

      After 3 sessions with the 3300 I just can't get it to sound right. My buddy and I both play pedals so there's a Trek string bass unit installed in the C3 and we really can't push the SB without it sounding boomy. We brought in a 122 and that helped a lot, plus, what player doesn't crave 2 Leslie's 😀
      I also like the 760 and had 2 at one time, but truth be known, my preference would be twin 142s. Especially since the organ has a Trek preamp, I'd prefer to have a tube-based output system.
