Testimonial - 8/27/18 Jim Caparelli NY State, USA
Jim Caparelli is the President of a media company located in New York state. Jim has been a client of Hammond Organ World for many years and has purchased several organs from Vince Seneri. That includes both Hammond & Viscount brands. Now Jim is the first customer in USA history to purchase the new Viscount Black Legend Signature Series Joey D model.
Jim was also the first person in the USA to purchase the original Viscount Legend organ and shortly after he then purchased the Legend Live, both purchases were made at Hammond Organ World. Now he is the first customer in the US to purchase and receive the new Viscount Black Legend Signature Series Joey DeFrancesco model, again from Vince Seneri's company, Hammond Organ World.
Jim is not only a big collector of great musical instruments, but also a collector of vintage automobiles including vintage Cadillac’s, Street Rods and Corvettes.
Here's what Jim said about his love for music and cars:
"I’ve always been a great fan of vintage cars, jazz music and vintage keyboards. I have aspired to the great Hammond jazz organ players like Jimmy Smith, Mc'Griff, Earland, Mc'Duff, Groove Holmes of the era and of course my friend Vince The Prince Seneri and Joey DeFrancesco one of the current performers I listen to today. When Viscount came out with the Legend organ, I bought it immediately from Hammond Organ World. Then when the Joey Signature Series model came out, I had to have it in my production studio too!
I currently own 22 various models of digital pianos, synthesizers and keyboards. This Black Viscount Legend Joey Signature Series is a proud addition to my inventory of fine products. The Batmobile and my Legend organ bring me back to a great era in American history and I am enjoying this Viscount masterpiece every day."
Vince thanks for the great deals and continued service you have given me on all my purchases from you and now my new Black Legend Organ.
Your Paisano Always,

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!
First New Legend Classic Organ Sold In USA!
Stuart Phoenix-Cornell, NY 7/12/18
My New Viscount Legend Classic Organ
Buying my Viscount Legend Classic from Vince Seneri at Hammond Organ World has been a wonderful experience. I did a lot of research, looking at all kinds of possibilities in the B3 realm, including the Hammond XK-5 and A-3, Nord C2D, Crumar Mojo, as well as other Viscount Legend versions (including the Joey De Francesco Signature Organ, which was enticing too).
In the end it came down to choosing something that my wife would accept in our living room, and I can report that after lots of early doubting and resistance, my wife loves it! She not only loves the sound, but the fact that it is second to none in terms of being housed in a superbly crafted case viewed as piece of furniture.
Frankly, the craftmanship is breathtaking in that regard and worth every penny, and the wait. I can see now why Viscount took their time to get it right. I should say that it also be a wonderful addition to any church looking for an organ.
Needless to say, the sound is fantastic, and I can now see what all the reviewers and users have been talking about regarding key-click, cross-talk, overdrive choices, full sets of drawbars and all the rest.
The pedal-board is sensitive but incredibly solid in build. I’m waiting for my new Leslie 122XB speaker to arrive, but can report that the Legend Classic sounds superb simply using my Yamaha HS80 monitor HS10W sub-woofer combination.
One thing I notice right away is that unlike another high-end keyboard I have, there is no low-level hum or noise (previously I was blaming the speakers).
And perhaps most important, Vince has been an absolute pleasure to work with irrespective of price (which was absolutely unbeatable).
As a new Legend model, we knew there would be a wait and Vince periodically called me to give me updates on progress. He even arranged for a conference call with the shipping folks at MMS, so that delivery would go smoothly, including setup.
The shipping carton was rugged, and in unpacking it all, getting it in the door and down the hallways, the MMS folks handled the Classic like it was $100,000 Steinway grand piano! Right from my first phone call to Vince, my mind was put at ease, and I knew I had made the right organ choice.
Vince, thanks for a great experience!

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 - My New Viscount Legend Organ - John Gualtieri
A story that has to be told. My first love was a blue ‘69 Chevelle Super Sport. What a beauty she was, fast and powerful but just to much to handle so I let her go. Sad.But along came a ‘64 cherry wood Hammond B3 and her friend Leslie. Wow! Love at first sight. It was a wonderful long term relationship that only men can dream about.
They could purr like kittens or growl like vixens. It was tough to keep them both happy here in Pennsylvania and so they left me for a younger gentlemen in Lucca Italy to live the fine life and grow old together. But I just couldn’t live without them so I tried so many clones but never really happy. Until, SHE came along, “V. LEGEND”. I am having a midlife crisis! I am so head over heals for her. So so much like my real ladies Bea and Leslie all rolled into one. She can purr and growl or even get nasty!
Kudos, to Elvio over in Italy, the man behind the curtain for sticking with her and teaming up with Viscount to bring her to production. It was a long wait but well worth it, Bravo! Credit to Lars Hamre & Ultra Funk too I am sure for getting her to sound so perfect. I predict many men will be having great affairs with her. My mistress now lives with me. Shhhhhhhhhhhhh, don’t tell my wife! It’s all Vince Seneri's fault for hooking me up and with the best price anywhere in the USA. Thank you thank you thank you! So I am a happy man again and will be spending many hours with V. LEGEND.
Well, as long as my wife lets me anyway. LOL.
Delroy White Testimonial
From Jamaica - Now Living In Alaska
His New Viscount Legend Organ, Korg Kronos & Leslie 3300
Delroy White Testimonial 11/14/17
To All Musicians,
Hey Guys my name is Delroy White originally from the island of Jamaica but I reside in Alaska and serve as Minister of Music at New Jerusalem Church Of God in Christ with my Pastor Otis McCormick. I’ve got a referral of this wonderful site from a friend of mine. So far I’m very impressed, I’ve got great deals from Mr Vince Seneri he’s a wonderful guy and an understanding person.
Here's what I purchased: Viscount Legend Organ, 25 note Pedal Board & Stand, Leslie 3300 and the Korg Kronos 73 Keyboard.
The Legend is one of the best digital clones, it has an edge over the Nord and Hammond XK5 and the price for the legend is less expensive then the Hammond XK5. Also,the Legend not only looks like a B3, but sounds and responds like a Hammond B3 organ. I love the tonewheel options the internal sim is a plus,one of the best internal sim’s I’ve heard so far.
Here Is Delroy with his new KORG Kronos 73
For the Kronos that keyboard is something else, the game has changed in the Workstation world arena.
The Korg pianos are exceptional, well sounding all the way through, the over all keyboard itself is very good state of the art complexed powerpacked machine. I’m blessed doing business with Mr Vince Seneri I highly recommend Mr Vince to anyone.
Blessings To All

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.
I 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
I've 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:
Of 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.
What 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 have cost.
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.)
Currently, 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.
Ron Stabinsky Testimonial 2/12/18
New Viscount Legend Organ
To All Musicians:
I am beyond happy with my new Viscount Legend Live! I'm so impressed by everything about it. It is hard to believe that it is now possible to have this level of sound and feel from a unit that weighs only forty pounds, and I'm thrilled that it can be had at such a great price as I was able to get it from Hammond Organ World. Special thanks to Vince Seneri also for making it possible for me to get it on extremely short notice. I had a performance, I knew it would make a big difference on the gig if I could get the Legend in time; Vince Seneri made it happen! The other musicians were floored by it, too!
From David Lightfoot Of Detroit Michigan: Testimonial
Thank God for Vincent and Hammond Organ World. As a gospel musician I've been wanting the Viscount Legend Live for a little while and they made it happen. Very happy 100%.
Thanks Vince- David Lightfoot

My New Signature Series Black Legend Organ
Thank You Vince Seneri,
Wow, love my new Viscount Signature Series Black Legend Organ and Viscount Hurricane Speaker.
This last Saturday I played at the First Turn Steakhouse in Port Orange, FL.my first gig with the Legend and Hurricane 210 amplifier. Got to tell you that that organ looks great set up on stage. The gig like many here was outdoors, large bar and dance floor with seating for several hundred people. The Legend sounded killer and the amp just killed it as well.I got a couple of anxious looks from our guitar player when we cranked up a little, that Hurricane kept pace with that Marshall and I still had plenty of headroom at the amp.
I had several people, musicians included come up to the stage to take a closer look at the organ, everyone who took a look thought it was a B3 which is funny since in bold letters in the front it says Viscount. It was fun telling them it was a signature model Viscount from Italy. The Hurricane garnered attention as well; again several people came up to me and said they thought that mini Leslie was neat. I let Silvio Della Mattia in Italy know how great the Hurricane performed, he was pleased.
Can't thank you enough Vince for the great deal and service you provided with regards to the purchase of the Viscount. Moving to the Viscount from the Hammond SK2 (which I love playing as well) is for me a great step up in terms of presentation and quality of sound. I just love that Legend, who wouldn't.
Thanks again Vince, when it comes time for that B3 I will be calling.

The Viscount is a killer, best clone I've ever played, and I've had Nord Electro's, Nord C2D, Hammond XK5, an Uhl, Hammond SK's, Numalogic, I've had them all. This thing sounds so good without a Leslie that it brought tears to me old eyes! This is my main AXE now!
Vince, thank you for the great deal and service you and your company gave me on my new Viscount Legend Live core organ.
