Builds upon the already legendary sound and performance of the classic B-3!

The Hammond XK-3c Drawbar Organ follows in the footsteps of the award-winning Hammond XK-3, known around the world as the new B-3. The Hammond XK-3 has become the definitive must-have keyboard for dedicated organ player who demand nothing but the best.

This musical instrument does what has never been done before - offering you the classic "tone-wheel" sound by utilizing 96-digital tone wheels. This Vase III sound generator now makes it possible to reproduce all of the characteristics of the vintage Hammond B-3. Additionally, the Hammond XK-3 houses two internal vacuum tubes that will change continuously from pre-amp mode to overdrive mode via control knob. The Hammond XK-3 organ also includes 12 reverse color key presets, 3 sets of drawbars, a 2-rotor digital Leslie, and a 6 -position rotary VIBRATO/CHORUS KNOB, all the features you would expect to find on a Hammond Vintage B-3.

  • XK3-C How Good does it get!

    As reviewed by Ralph Jr. on 10/20/2009

    Want the sound of a Hammond? Then buy this XK3-C Hammond. After 30 yrs. a portable that actually sounds like the real thing. I could'nt be happier. There is no substitute for a Hammond. Finally I get to go to all the blues jams and play, just play my Hammond, Pack it up, Load it up, (all by myself)! and away I go. The Leslie is perfect. I cant tell from the real thing. Thanks to the folks at Guitar Center, Madison, Wi.

  • True Sound

    As reviewed by Kris Goodall on 11/27/2012

    I use this organ weekly in a church setting and I must say it is one of the truer B3/C3 sounds I've ever heard on anything electronic. It's easily expandable through MIDI, lightweight, and my favorite function HAS to be the overdrive tubes inside. Nothing replaces a B3/C3 of course, but if you're looking to save money or space and get the closest sound possible, I highly recommend this board.
