This site has not been updated since July of 2002, and was declared "inactive" in 2006.  All reviews and such have been removed -- contact information for most of the authors is stale, plus the reviews are from a 2001-ish perspective.  All that is left is the technical information on the Korg BX-3 and CX-3, which seems to still have use for some owners.

Please DO NOT contact me about any of this information, or about additional details of running, updating, or modifying a Korg digital organ.  I sold my CX-3 in early 2004, and even sold its replacement BX-3 in 2011.  I have no Korg organs here to test, and frankly, the revision information seen here here is at least as good as my memory when discussing the smaller details.

I no longer provide any upgrading or repair services for the Korg BX-3 and CX-3.

  Korg re-released their famous 2nd generation of BX-3 and CX-3 organs in 2000-2002.  Although the names are the same, and the cabinets are similar, these are wholly new animals inside, when compared to Korg's '80s products.  The new BX-3/CX-3 use digital "modeling" technology to simulate the tones and nuances of the Hammond B-3, complete with a Leslie speaker simulator.  They are pretty good bargains these days, and still hold their own with the proper amplification, and perhaps, a Ventilator.
