Viscount INTERCONTINENTAL OP-6
It's actually 2 OP3 in the same box, so a clone Italian Korg BX3. We find the same things then double (zippers, effects, presets) plus a coupling of two keyboards as a classical organ and knob "detune" dsaccorder lgrement for the 2 keyboards. This trick is used to enrich the sound by a kind of natural phasing. The effects are built purely analog TRS correct. Since it was more raliste including imitation of Leslie but "the fact" when same.
A gap: no rverbe for an organ is a bit odd, but there is a mono effects loop which can be insrer rverbe a "spring", real or simulated ( Danelectro Spring (?) or Vermona Retroverb). And "mass is called" ...

UTILIZATION

The use is very simple: you hack the zippers and effects up to get the sound "going well". The presets are useful as enjoyable and to pass a sound instantanment another. Trs and can be reached quickly, a register, however, more rock (Procol Harum) and reggae (the "No Woman No Cry by Bob Marley) and jazz.
As against it should be noted that when not used for a long PERIOD key contacts oxidize and merdouillent .... Nothing serious, just disassemble, it is easy to clean and KF or alcohol brler contact dfaillant.
On the other ct for cheaper than the Japanese were a little on quality lsin media IC and connectors. Clearly, when one hears nothing has comes from. Most of the time just to go back and disassemble the lment (component or connector) for rtable contact. I started my own team of connectors of good quality but there are a bunch ... they do merdent the most is a dj. on the other hand I've never changed a single transistor or Resistors .... since 1983, as what the design is correct.

SOUNDS

"Gross casting" from the Korg its direct competitor, the sound is warmer and less aggressive. Pass in a real Leslie has changed dramatically. Prampli a direct box or a lamp could also do the trick for cheaper and less bulky. In any case avoid excessive force on the treble on the amp ... There is no breath Gnant. Good simulation of analog Hammond organ lamps and tonewheel: even if from the technical chantillonage has a better "fidlitquot;, the spirit is there. Sounds of hell for the rock 70 - 80, reggae or blues!

OVERALL OPINION

Good alternative to the Korg which ignores much more expensive and for which I hsit at the time of purchase. I could compare the two at the store. The sound is trs correct, the look is identical and trs "vintage" normal given the era. And I always .... in running state. Reserved for a little but the worries of false contacts, but appear only when not in use and are easily extended rgls if it knows a little.

Viscount INTERCONTINENTAL OP-6
The sound of a great organ for cheap. Curiously, however, difficult to find secondhand today, 20 years later. If we consider objectively all Hammonds are substantially or completely different depending on the model, the state (... and the musician behind!), The OP6 driven by a 122/147 or other quality s alignment, even today, in the category of "bluffing"! In addition, all parameters are adjustable to the left of keyboards, the latter being very nice to me, both in the quality of depression in accuracy. These, too, are a bit noisy, but keyboards with B3 to change the felts are many more. We are reassured as can be! In short, everything that is not accessible here, is in the belly of the beast, the V / C to the volume of each harmonic of each keypad, to the sensitivity of the expression pedal speed Leslie, etc ... Double flat, however, to simulate the Leslie, but "only in high speed." In short, a great organ to play with a quality cabin, Leslie if possible. In this configuration, simply copy the Registration B3 and them trying to get a real thrill "music".

UTILIZATION

The configuration is "could not be more simple," if we accept to have all controls on the left, then available only in left hand ... though ... which caused confusion may be some purists are missing details that have nothing to do with the final result! In short, we say, we can not act on the drawbars with the right hand while taking a deal. Hmm ... Perhaps it lacks a few presets in addition to the moaners? Okay, it seems that any organization that respects itself does not use more than 3, the Full, of course.

SOUNDS

Again, it may happen a lot of time trying many settings that can change things at all ... By noon all the ecception of the overdrive, without asking more questions, the sound is definitely there. There will only open the belly of the beast, if we take "really" to personalize the issue, but ... Really complete, this organ does not fit into this category of "clones" that deepen excessive defects of the cartoon to look like ... which does not yet mean much when dealing with a Hammond prepared and properly adjusted. In short, a playable organ!
It seems that there are improvements between the first and OP3 OP6? To be confirmed, while wary of the organ "re-set."

OVERALL OPINION

Having had an old B3 "massacre" and a 122 in my years of Baloch and is now unable to buy such a sound, I found an OP6 used. Personally, I would not have sought a Korg, a taste of what I've heard and touched. In addition to playing every day and also by the group, I confess that my memories of B3 worn and dilapidated untransportable I do not miss more than the L122 that followed in desperation and I did not loved (no click, vibrato yuck, small keyboards "sharp", not 16 'or the lower straight ...).
In his right and apart from all the background noise due to the tone wheel (especially in the midrange and bass ...) and other condos tired, I find this sentiment a little organ "raw casting" output line. Even if we compare what is comparable, I'll play again this OP6 with great pleasure, even if I could afford, happily, a ... New B! Anyway, I will not sell the instrument for which I have an emotional attachment and who shares my intense moments in his new cabinet cherry wood veneer. When we know with what pleasure and "musicality" renewed Rhoda Scott played each B3, clone B3000 and other less positive, however, the OP6 is a beautiful organ, which also allows the music of very high quality. So, Organ base, base Organ, raw casting, to "walk" with a cabin, stomach, head and fingers.
I do not always explain the fact that it is so difficult to find used!? Too bad for beginners, when you only have to clean the pots and contacts go back to keyboards for 20 years of fun ... and more.
