Hammond SK2: Honey I Shrunk the B3!The genuine sound of the legendary B3, dual 61-note keyboards, and a juicy compliment of FX - in a package you can tuck under your arm. It's the Hammond SK2 Combo Organ, and it gives you a whole new world of organic expressiveness (pardon the pun). Play it as a two-manual organ - or assign the Drawbar/Extravoice divisions to whichever keyboard. With authentic digital Leslie rotary speaker emulation, acoustic and electric pianos, clavs, wind instruments, and even accordion, the SK2 is your basic B3 in a box (a small, lightweight one).
When it comes to organ sounds, most purists insist on a genuine Hammond. The SK2 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 SK2 is your axe.
