The Ultra-Portable HAMMOND SK-series pack all the power, all the tradition, and all the soul of a Vintage B-3 into a trim 15-pound package. We haven't stopped there, including a wide series of other voices, like Acoustic and Electric Pianos, Clav, Vintage Combo Organs, Vintage String Synthesizer, Accordions, Pipe Organ, and many others. The SK series aren't watered-down "light" or "clone" versions of a Hammond, either. All the classic features that "make" a Hammond are included: Real Mechanical Drawbars, "Waterfall" Keyboard, Touch Response Percussion, Chorus Vibrato, and a new-generation "Digital Leslie" that gives the big speaker a run for the money. Your eyes see "portable" but your ears hear, and your touch says: "B-3"...

For a long time the Hammond sound has been indispensable in rock and pop music amongst other genres. Acoustic pianos and other vintage keyboard sounds are also very popular and frequently used in all kinds of music.

With the introduction of the new SK series Hammond has successfully combined the legendary B-3 sound with high quality vintage sounds such as acoustic pianos, electric pianos, strings and many other sounds and effects. The result is a combination which organists and keyboard-players could only dream of.

The SK-series Stage Keyboards are the most revolutionary HAMMONDS yet, from the company that invented and perfected the Drawbar/Tonewheel concept in 1934. These ultralight instruments provide the essential keyboard sounds required to play ANY show in ANY style, including a genuine and vintage-perfect HAMMOND Organ in compact packages with all the features expected in a vintage B-3, plus our most advanced Digital Leslie yet.

In addition to the authentic HAMMOND Tonewheel voices, the SK's Extravoice Division provides Hi-Def Acoustic Grands, Electric Piano's, Harpsichord, Accordeon, Wind, Brass, Synth and Tuned Percussion voices complete the spec. You may play any of the Extravoices "solo" or add them to the Organ voices. The Organ Generator may be switched to provide authentic models of British Vx Organ, Vx Jag.Organ and Italian Farf Combo Organs, all of which can be registered in the original fashion. The fourth Organ mode calls 32 ranks of Genuine Classical ("Church") Pipe Organ voices.

Like all modern Hammonds, the SK's have deep editing capabilities, allowing voicing (volume/timbre/leakage/motor noise) for each of the 96 Digital Tonewheels, faithfully delivering any Hammond Organ's individual personality, with the ability to save these profiles for instant recall. 12 Factory Digital Tonewheel profiles ranging from "showroom clean" to "road worn" are available for instant personalization. Every Facet of the Hammond's sound like Chorus/Vibrato, Percussion, Key Click and Overdrive are widely adjustable with all settings saved with every preset.

The Pipe Organ voices are also scaling/voicing capable.

Their semi-weighted keyboards are designed to feel like a vintage B-3, yet remain comfortable for any pianist, with variable touch "depth". An expandable Voice Library is available free from the Hammond Website.

Any of the SK Series may be used as a MIDI Controller, with the ability to address 3 external zones.

An mp3/wav music-player is onboard to play backing tracks, break music, educational aids or any other tunes combined with the SK's stereo output. You may also direct connect a physical Leslie Speaker via the 8pin dedicated Leslie Jack.

Equipped with the same sound engine (VASE III) as our highly acclaimed Hammond XK-3c, the SK models feature the best Hammond has to offer; the legendary Hammond B-3 Sound, high quality Acoustic pianos, Vintage Electric pianos, Vintage strings, Pipe-organs and many other sounds and effects.

With the ability to download additional library sounds via USB the Hammond SK models offer players unique possibilities for individual setups.
