Winter NAMM Hammond Suzuki USA Stand Jon Hammond and Joe Berger Late Rent theme song Jon Hammond at the organ and Joe Berger guitar aka Ham-Berger playing LATE RENT theme song for The Jon Hammond Show cable TV show and HammondCast on KYOU Radio. Joe Berger is playing his custom JJ guitar through the new G37 Leslie guitar speaker amp, 100 watts RMS solid state power amp with vacuum tube preamp. The Rhodes Piano stand across the aisle is turning up their volume quite loud, but Jon & Joe exercised restraint, because between the 100 watt G37 and 300 watts 3300W Leslie amp coupled with Jon's organ could easily take care of any situation, except for NAMM Sound Control (sound police) *note: Thanks for coming by HSUSA stand right after we finished Sound Control people! Jon The Rhodes people turned out to be real nice, it often happens that there is a battle of sound in open stands at music trade shows folks.
