The Hammond B-3P

Portable Hammond B3

The PORTABLE B-3, like the NEW B-3 is an exact duplication of Hammond’s Original B-3 using modern, lightweight Digital technology. For the first time the B-3 is offered in an easy-to-move cabinet which is simple to set up and transport. Playing dimensions (when assembled) and all controls are identical to the original, vintage B-3, as is the unforgettable classic sound.

As the PORTABLE B-3mk2 is identical to the NEW B-3mk2, except for the cabinet, please refer to the NEW B-3mk2 page for Demonstrations
