Hammond SK1: Honey I Shrunk the B3!

Hammond must have left a B3 in the dryer too long. They took the swirling sonic magic of the legendary B3, and crammed it all into a tidy box weighing less than 16 pounds. The Hammond SK1 is the first Hammond portable organ to pack a broad selection of Extra Voices. The SK1's Drawbar section dishes up authentic B3 vibe, with all the fixin's. You get real mechanical Drawbars, Chorus Vibrato, Touch-Response Percussion - and a ridiculously realistic digital Leslie rotary speaker emulation.

Also onboard are Hammond's Vx and Farf combo organ models and an assortment of fine classical Pipe Organ voices derived from Hammond's 935 Church Organ. Rounding out the SK1's rich soundset are Acoustic and Electric Pianos, Clavs, Accordions, Vintage String Synth, Wind Instruments and Tuned Percussion. Wow.

When it comes to organ sounds, most purists insist on a genuine Hammond. The SK1 is the real deal - just several hundred pounds lighter and it'll will fit in your roadster. The Drawbar section is a complete Hammond Organ with all the functions. The voicings served up by Hammond's VASE III digital tone-wheel sound generators conjure up the spittin' image of the original.

If you're jonesing for those swirlicious vintage B3 tones, but don't have seven roadies and a semi, the Hammond SK1 is your axe.

Darryl, your note of thanks arrived like a gentle wind blowing across the surface of a still pond on a crisp fall morning, stirring the embers of a dwindled campfire encircled by the tents of campers awakening to the sight of a beautiful dawn.
