    Jon Lord's B3 to Marshal Stack Modification

    How did Lord modify his B3 to play through a Marshal stack?

    #2
    He used a C3 for live though, I think he added a 1/4 line out output to it and then plugged a guitar cable to it and then ran it to it
    Current Organs/Keyboards:1967 Hammond H-111, 1971 Hammond L-112, 1972 Hammond T-524

    Leslie cabinets: 1975 Leslie 825 & 1974-76 Leslie Model 705
    Past Organs/Keyboards: 1961 Hammond L-101, 1974 Kawai E-300, 1968 Yamaha B-55N, 1979 Yamaha Electone B-55N, 1984 Yamaha Electone ME-50 and a lot more!

      He used a direct line out with a RMI electric piano built into the C3 cabinet and lots of other changes, likely Bill Beer style effect loops etc, to get the Machine Head era sound,

        And when Ian Gillan and Roger Glover were sacked and replaced by David Coverdale and Glenn Hughes (MkIII), he started using leslies again, even through the reformation of MkII (Perfect Strangers, House of Blue light etc.) In the Mk III and MK IV period I believe he used gutted and supermodded leslie's, powered by Crown amps (not sure, I believe I read that somewhere). I am not sure what he used during the Perfect strangers and on era... But he definitely used leslies in that period.

            The threads on this site might make an interesting read:

            Just click on forum, and then artists, Jon Lord. A lot of interesting facts on that site, also about blackmore and glover, and the granddaddy of the metal-riff, Tony Iommi.
