The power, tradition and soul of a B-3 in a super portable package.

The Hammond Sk1 weighs just 15 pounds, and is the first Hammond portable to feature a wide range of Extra Voices. The "Drawbar" section is a complete Hammond Organ with all the traditional features: Real Mechanical Drawbars, Chorus Vibrato, Touch-Response Percussion, and the most authentic Digital Leslie Hammond has ever offered. "Vx" and "Farf" combo organ models are also available, as well as an assortment of fine classical Pipe Organ voices derived from their 935 Church Organ. Acoustic and Electric Pianos, Clavs, Accordions, Vintage String Synth, Wind Instruments and Tuned Percussion round out the sound selection though you can download more via the USB port. The Sk1 also has a MP3 Music Player and a new-generation "Digital Leslie" that gives the big speaker a run for the money.

  • Great Hammond

    As reviewed by JAMIE MOSES on 7/20/2012

    Ordered the Sk-1 to give it the 30 day try out while my Hammond Xk-1 was being repaired. At first I was put off because it's so small. Then I took it on a gig and was totally impressed with the big sound and the authenticity of the tones. I'm keeping the SK-1 and selling the XK1. The only downside is I miss the pitch-bend wheel. Other than that this thing rocks.

  • Hammond Sk1 the 15 LB Beast

    As reviewed by Bob Baskey on 9/16/2013

    Background- had a B3 (copied a trek II portable cabinet) and Leslie 145 ( w/4 ohm JBL - atlas 60 watt driver w/ 200 watts on top of it, it really jammed. Sold it because band buddies got tired of carrying it. Bought other keys and modules.Later bought a voce v3 on e-bay to add to keys, sounded great. Almost bought the hammond xk3, so watched the Sk1 for a year. Bought it on Tues and rec'd it on the 28th a Friday.That Sunday at rehearsel for the following Friday,with another band, the guys kept laughing that when they closed there eyes they imagined a 400 LB Hammond sitting there. The thing just kicks butt, especially when I cranked the overdrive. I hate spongy keys and I liked the feel of my DX7. The sk's keys are just alittle more resistent,didn't take any time to get used to it. Look on youtube and check out Jim Alfredson and his sk2-- you'll see dead on. I like the other extra voices,but In my opinion I like some better real sounding strings. Only took this keyboard to the job, that's all. No 3 other keyboards and 2 sound modules, for once setup and toredown before the drummer.kept on going in thinking I left something behind at the end of the night. Oh yea the built in MP3 player is also cool. Demoed the keyboard for a bunch of people during break and played along with "the Sky is Crying " Steve Ray Vaughn. I transposed original key of E to me playing in F, what a lazy cheat I've become. Thanks Jim Alfredson for all your help,this keyboard or I should say Hammond really is a modern Hammond B3 in my book at only 15 Lbs too. Bob B

  • Unbelievable.

    As reviewed by jocelyn labrecque on 9/2/2012

    Best keyboard i've ever owed. Real B3 sound, leslie is fantastic and the drawbars are the real thing. I took out the additional 3yr waranty. I handle it with kid gloves when I travel. And when I play a gig, all the other musicians come to check it out.
