Electro-Harmonix B9 or C9 for Beano sounds?!?

Howdy groovers,
We have a pianist who plays with us part time. There's a few tracks I'd like to do when he's not there and I'm looking at the Electro Harmonix B9/C9 pedals to cover it. Only problem is I can't decide if the sound I'm looking for will be best covered by the 'Full and fat' on the B9 or the 'Tonewheel' setting on the C9. Think of the organ tone on 'stepping out' and that's what I'm looking for. The B9 does a good 'green onions' sound but the 'tonewheel' on the c9 also sounds good, and I think might cover it better (but there seems to be more 'useful' options on the B9). The B9 has a cathedral organ which may be fun, but the C9 has Lord Purple, which I assume would be great too!! Does anyone have either of these and some advice?

Edit: Fwiw I think the organ used was a Hammond M102.
