Great Expectations & No Disappointments

By Daniel Goerg

from Murfreesboro,TN

Comments about Hammond XK-1 Drawbar Organ:

I shopped around for a long time and I was sure I was getting the best Hammond sound for the money. Well, not only is that true, but the Leslie is fantastic AND the midi/controller functions are way cooler than I expected. The extra sounds may be weak, but I look at them as a bonus-you shouldn't expect any other sounds from a specialized instrument like this. But the organs-just freakin' great! Solid build with B3/wood look. Keys feel just right-B3y. I've owned three B's in the [long] past & other clonewheels, both hardware & software - the XK-1 will probably be the last organ I buy.

THE REAL DEAL!

By Raph

from Largo, FL

Comments about Hammond XK-1 Drawbar Organ:

This is as close to the real deal minus 270lbs! Great feel (waterfall keys, real drawbars), tone (authentic chorus, percussion, OD, Leslie), very tweakable. Only thing I hate about it is the worthless Extra Sounds. Should have dedicated ALL the memory to the Hammond\Leslie replication. Still a great Clonewheel though!

This is It !!!

By Jimmy Colletta

from Glendale Ny

Comments about Hammond XK-1 Drawbar Organ:

I played and hauled an old Hammond for years. I was never completely satisfied with the portable replacements I used until I purchased the XK1. It feels, plays, and sounds great! The organ presets are very good and with a little tweaking you can get exactly what you want. The leslie effect is better than others in this class and the drawbars are for real! This instrument deserves to have the legendary name of Hammond.

Light and Sweet

By Mightyfee

from Charlestown, RI

Comments about Hammond XK-1 Drawbar Organ:

I owned an XK-2 for a while, which sounded great but broke my back before and after a gig. This thing sounds better and weighs about thirty pounds. GREAT feel, gorgeous, flexible tone, and the Leslie sounds like a Leslie. Just buy it already.

Hammond XK-1 Drawbar Organ

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

Comments about Hammond XK-1 Drawbar Organ:

My neighbor is an independent artist, and he owns this keyboard. Although I do not play keyboard, I heard him produce a song and I was amazed. There are so many features that are available in this product. He carries it around when he plays for local bands, and it still has not failed him. Greatly recommended!

Hammond XK-3

By tikboy99

from North Highlands, CA

Comments about Hammond XK-1 Drawbar Organ:

I am amazed by the performance of the Hammond XK-3. The quality of the sound is almost the same as as a Hammond B3. It's portable, not that lightweight, but I love this organ. I used it to play for church when the B3 broke down, and people were amazed and thought that the B3 was fixed. I recommend this instrument. It is a good buy.

Hammond XK-1 Achieves Goal

By MkMont

from Glen Carbon, IL/Hillsboro, OR

Comments about Hammond XK-1 Drawbar Organ:

Hammond-Suzuki set out to create a lighter weight lower cost digital tonewheel organ that sounds great. The XK-1 is a breakthrough product that meets those goals. In addition to using the nine drawbars and onboard effects to achieve authentic B3 sounds, the product has the added bonus of eight additional sounds including three electric pianos, two clavinets, vibes and two synth sounds. The special effects include one of the best digital Leslie effects ever produced. The user can change parameters on items such as percussion and vibrato/chorus to personal tastes. Also, one can model several versions of the B3 from 'clean' to 'noisy' depending on how much vintage leakage and keyclick is preferred. Interfaces include the standard stereo 1/4" outputs, 9-pin Leslie (for the model 21), and 2 midi in/1 midi out. Two accessories are accepted, a footswitch (for Leslie speed) and a volume/expression pedal. These are purchased separately.
