Overview

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.

Comments about Hammond Sk1 Organ:

I am just a hobbyist.
This is a great product!
This is just to follow up on my previous review a couple of years ago. I think I've discovered a suited speaker for the SK1, these are the Champ 600's. I have been using them for a couple of months now and they are incredible.

Hammond Sk1 the 15 LB Beast

By Bob Baskey

from Boardman Ohio

Comments about Hammond Sk1 Organ:

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

love it but not out of the box

By Dennis Wieand

from Bethlehem, Pa

Comments about Hammond Sk1 Organ:

I tried one of these about a year and a half ago, thinking it might be good for small gigs. I went to a GC and tried it for an hour, they had no volume pedal hooked up, and it just didn't "have it" so I dismissed it. Well, a year later, I'm doing more small venues, there's not room for the korg cx3 and wurly, let alone the leslie, so I start doing research again, thinking I'm leaning toward a nord. But I need EP and organ at the same time, so I start looking at the SK again. I find one local, call and ask the salesman if I can bring in my vent and a volume pedal. I tell him I'm going to need at least an hour with it, if I like it I buy it there, no shopping around. The kid is very helpful, helps me hook everything up, and leaves me in peace to play the thing. Five minutes later, I go and find him, tell him to pack it up, it's going home with me. The plan was to use it and the vent on small gigs alone, and use the korg and leslie for organ and it for EP's, etc. on the bigger jobs where I had room. After spending a week tweaking they came out with the software update where you can set up your own tonewheel generator. I spent a night matching my real hammond in the studio through a leslie, and another night matching the real hammond through the vent, and since then this and the vent goes out with me on every gig no matter how big or small. Rhodes is great, the organ absolutely screams one minute, and gets that mellow 838000000 sound the next. Wurly is usable, but not near as realistic as the rhodes (I have one of each of the real thing, plus 3 hammonds in the studio so I am familiar with what the real thing is). The interface is a little different than a B3, which worried me at first (that was the reason I went with the CX3), but I'm as at home now with it as I am the Korg. I'm doing mostly blues and Funky type jazz, with a bass player, and am doing OK without 2 manuals, but sometimes wish I went with the SK2 (until I setup and tear down!). But as far as sound and playability goes, I love this thing! I still don't know what happened the first time I tried it, but with the vent (the internal sim has the rotary down, but the distortion is lacking) and a lot of time tweaking it I am totally satisfied with my setup. ALso, I had a minor problem with it, where it went down on a monday, and I had a major set of weekend gigs coming up, and hammond USA bent over backwards and I was up and running that wednesday afternoon, free of charge, so I'm also totally sold on their customer service.

Unbelievable.

By jocelyn labrecque

from North Smithfield Rhode Island

Comments about Hammond Sk1 Organ:

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.

Great Hammond

By JAMIE MOSES

from Buffalo, NY

Comments about Hammond Sk1 Organ:

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.

It's a dream come true!

By Juanito DeVera

from Los Angeles, CA

Comments about Hammond Sk1 Organ:

It is a classic B3 sound...I like the "aged" look of the keys, or you may call it "vintage" style. All the controls are complete and the effects are stunning! The Leslie sim is good and believable. I could never afford a real Hammond B3, but now I own a Hammond. I think I will keep this keyboard for the rest of my life! I just bought my Hammond SK1 barely 4 days ago. Thank you Guitar Center!
