FIRST IN USA TO PURCHASE NEW VISCOUNT LEGEND ORGAN! 5/24/17
Purchase At Hammond Organ World: Chuck Treppeda (Left) & Jim Caparelli (Right)
Both Chuck and Jim, long time friends, are the first two people in the USA to purchase the outstanding new Viscount Legend Organ. They called Vince Seneri, the President of HAMMOND ORGAN WORLD, at the beginning of 2017. Finally, after waiting four months for the organs to arrive from Italy, they picked up their new Viscount Legend organs in May, 2017 at our distribution center. Now, HAMMOND ORGAN WORLD and Vince Seneri would like to congratulate these gentlemen for making a great investment and for being the first in music history to purchase the new Viscount Legend Organ.
QUOTE FROM JIM CAPARELLI: "Vince Seneri, owner of Hammond Organ World is awesome! I have been a repeat customer of his since connecting with him 7 years ago. He has the best prices and is so knowledgeable. He is also a top talented organ player and performer. Thank you Vince for another great deal!"
QUOTE FROM CHUCK TEPPEDA: "The Legend is very nice! Again, thank you Vince for the great deal and support you gave me and my friend Jim! Thank you so much for the pick up and delivery an the unbelievably nice things you do for musicians like us. I hope to record the organ and post a video or two this weekend. I've been playing it an hour or so everyday. I'm getting really close and will definitely be there in time to record something this weekend. The more I play it, the more I love it!"
SPECIAL NOTE FROM VINCE SENERI: I am honored to have assisted these great guys with their new purchase. Chuck and Jim, from New York state, are excellent musicians and super nice guys. They both love the sound of the Legendary Vintage Hammond B3 organ. They each have owned many Vintage Hammond organs and many of the new digital organs that have come and gone. Now finally the organ they've been waiting for, VISCOUNT LEGEND!

Testimonial On His New Legend Live - 6/5/17
To all organist/musicians who want to know about the new Viscount Legend Live Organ-By Scott Coulter
So I came up as a pianist, and discovered Hammond organ gradually. I always liked playing the "organ sounds" on my keyboard in high school. Then I graduated to the first VK7 during my freshman year of college. Since then (and it's been longer than I'd care to admit), Hammond organ has been an obsession for me.
I've played every imaginable clone out there at this point - Hammond XK3, Hammond XK1c, Nord C2, Crumar Mojo, and the old Numa organ. And I've played my fair share of the real thing, too, so I know what the tone should be, how the thing should feel, how it should respond to your input as a player, and above all, just how damn GOOD it feels to sit behind a real console and work all those magical draw bars, percussion tabs, foot pedals and two rows of beautiful keys!
I can honestly say that the Legend Live is the closest experience I have EVER had to sitting behind a real tonewheel console Hammond. The layout is exactly as it should be. Everything is in the right place, right where you'd reach on a Hammond. The build is solid, and it doesn't feel like it's gonna fall apart on me. But the most important part is the sound - and here the Legend simply gets it better than anyone else out there.
It's live, it's dynamic, it's got the right amount of dirt in it. But above all, it comes at you the same way a LIVE organ does. I've played a lot of clones that sound great, but they sound like a really well recorded organ, not a live instrument. The Legend doesn't sound like something "trying to sound like a Hammond". It sounds like a Hammond in the room with you - and a mint one at that!
And I should give a shout out to Vince at Hammond Organ World, too. He gave me a GREAT price on this thing - lower than anyone else selling it. It arrived right on time and in great shape. I'll be returning for a Leslie 3300 to go with this thing as soon as I'm done paying it off (I'd get the 3300 sooner, but the wife might kick me out of the house if I did...)

Testimonial On His New Legend - 6/10/17
Just got the new Viscount Legend organ. WOW! This thing is unbelievable, "SCARY GOOD."
I've played all the Clones and I feel like I'm sitting behind a Hammond B3 organ. It's Awesome! Vince I can't thank you enough for the super great deal you gave me. I also want to thank you and Jay Valley for the new endorsement opportunity as a Legend & Legend Live endorsed artist.
What all organist and musicians need to know, is that Vince Seneri, from Hammond Organ World was amazing in helping me with this purchase. Nobody knows organs and keyboards better than him and he truly has gives the best prices in the USA.
Need the best tone-wheel clone organ around, then the Viscount Legend and Legend Live is for you.
Testimonial By Brad Dawson, Texas, USA
Viscount Key/B Legend 6/12/17
I wrote this testimonial for musicians/organist that are in the market for a new Legend organ!
My intentions are to give musicians/organist some good insight on this awesome new organ!
To all Musicians/Organist,
I received this Legend with the wood stand, 25 note pedal board and wood bench, the week of June 5, 2017.
wanted to wait a few days to post a picture and give my first
impressions to let some of the initial euphoria wear off. The problem
is, the initial euphoria has not worn off! Wow, what an instrument.
Having had most every clone wheel ever produced, this is far and away
the closest to a fully restored vintage B-3 I have ever owned
owned three B-3's in my years along with the lower back damage to prove
it. I bought this organ from Vince at Hammond Organ World, sight unseen
and having never played one. I shopped every available dealer I could
find last winter after seeing the NAMM 2017 videos and Vince gave me an
unbelievable package deal.
Here's what I personally love about the Viscount Key/B Legend Organ:
course everything, but to be more specific, I love the percussion, it
sounds so warm. Viscount nailed it and the volume does not go down on
the second/third harmonic when you flip it to normal and/or soft. Also
the rocker switches like a B3, for percussion and Chorus/Vibrato 1,2,3.
I can't understand why Hammond Suzuki has not done this on XK5. The
percussion sound truly reminds me of some of the early records that Jimmy
Smith and George Benson recorded, the track is Mimosa.
organist should know, is the feel of the Legend keyboard is perfect!
When seated at the organ it's set up just like a B3. 5 sets of
draw-bars, no scroll through a menus, love the black and white preset
keys. This organ plays and feels like the real thing, 45 pounds, easy
to move, plays and sound just like a B3.
Lastly, this was the
final deciding factor for my purchase. As a package the Legend organ is
way more affordable the Hammond XK5 double manual. For what I
would have paid for a Hammond XK5 double manual, I purchased the
complete Legend organ package with pedals, wood stand and bench with a
new 122XB Leslie speaker for substantially less money than the XK5 would
Yes, I also purchased a new 122xb Leslie
speaker for my Legend. The Leslie will work perfectly with my Viscount
giving it the ultimate sound quality. I also purchased the new Leslie
from Vince; he gave me the best deal on that as well in the USA. (Leslie
is currently being manufactured by the Hammond Organ Company.)
I am running this through my studio 12 Leslie speaker and the sound is
incredible with that warm swirl we have all grown to love. For late
night or other times I want to play and not wake up the family, the
headphones right out of the organ using the on board Leslie sim is so
great I lose track of time.
My advise, get a Legend, you will be happy you did.
