The size, shape, and feel of traditional B3 drawbars
No guesswork here - when Ocean Beach Digital created their DB-1 drawbar controller, they went back to the source, using a real mid 1950s Hammond B-3 organ as their inspiration. That's why the DB-1 sports the same drawbar spacing and travel distance that will make any experienced organist feel right at home. They even nailed the shape of the DB-1's drawbar handles! Don't settle for less than authentic B-3 style feel - get your Ocean Beach Digital DB-1 drawbar module for Nord keyboards from Sweetwater!

Using with Korg CX-3 and VB-3 Plugin.
by Ben Allen from Winston Salem, NCI called sweeter to see if this would work for my set up. My Korg CX-3 was not responding right with the software I use (VB-3) so I needed something that would. As always, the folks at Sweetwater were... read more [+] helpful, and gave me all the information I needed, including the number for the guy who makes these things! I am blown away by how well this works, the construction quality is TOP-NOTCH. I don't think I have anything in my rig that is built this well besides my motu gear. Outstanding. Butter smooth response, and you don't have to be afraid of grabbing the draw bar sliders and getting rough with them!

You can't go wrong with this little box, and for this price, its a no brainer. Put it this way, based on construction quality alone, if Ocean Beach Digital ever builds a keyboard, I will be the first to buy it! close [-]

to make those sweet timbral alterations a keyboardist wants. My only complaint is a small one: I wish there was a bit more resistance in the play of the sliders. They move easily and stay in place but I'd just like something that felt more meaty. close [-]
solid built/easy to use
by jim chrzan from chicagoAgree with another review that a little resistance to the bar sliding would feel good, but the unit has expanded the playability of my Nord rig in live situations.

Outstanding addition for an Electro
by Kevin from Conway, ARThis unit has made B3 stuff on my Electro 3 a lot easier.

The stick-on feet work pretty well. Aggressive players may want to use some Velcro, but I haven't had the unit slide off yet. Even if it did, it's built like a tank. I love the fact that the MIDI bus can provide the power it needs, so no battery needed! close [-]
A Perfect Addition to the Nord Electro 3
by from Lake TahoeA very useful addition to the Nord Electro 3. Installation was simple plug and play. The fact that the unit gets its power through the midi line is great.
