Typha's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Usurpation"

Hammond X5
Zippers for HAMMOND




Sounds bad


This keyboard is not worthy to be called HAMMOND.
It is a usurpation who knows the true HAMMOND to TONE WHEELS,
PERCUS and Vibrato SCANNER ...

2066 & then's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

Hammond X5
Hammond keyboard keys 2x44, + pdalier 13 notes. Hammond touch, I suppose, otherwise plutt piano keyboard, obviously.
This is a "spinet" without tone wheel (to replace the analog oscillators of Manir ralistes enough, but not identical). Designed as a "portable organ" ... instead of "portable", I would say now plutt "transportable".
Prvoir screwdriver, pliers, and other basic tools to disassemble and reassemble. Controller: 9 drawbars for the keyboard suprieur, 7 infrieur keyboard, a zipper for pdalier (one volume, what), along with a switch to Defines the octave, or waveform.
Two percussion 2nd and 3rd, long or short (activation of the percussionist. Does not nullify the action of the pull corresponding harmonic, as the wheel Hammond organs). A switch "repeat" to rpter percussion, pinking a kind of mandolin effect adjustable using a knob "Rate"
A preset keyboard infrieur, three for suprieur. rarely used but can be useful on occasion.
Two switches "vibrato", 1 and 2 combined. And invited Leslie control: on / off and slow / fast form of two switches. Note: Leslie 11-pin socket (that of vice!) for Leslie 760 or 770, may be others, I do not know.
A switch to toggle the pdalier on the lower keyboard infrieur.
Two switches to provide an envelope style "strings" to low. Not really justified.
Two swich "reverb" 1 & 2, with its CHARACTERISTICS, somewhat invasive, but I find trs enjoyable, especially with the Leslie on.
A brightness knob, useful when playing on something other than Leslie.
Total polyphony, no problem.


You can use a Hammond organ? You will then use the X5


Trs sounds are good, but not the exact sound rplique Hammond tone wheel. The vibrato is much more to think about Farfisa Garage rock at the B3 vibrato scanner.
There are, however, the main CHARACTERISTICS sound, with the Key-click, and everything. We feel the lack of lights in the Leslie, but it's not the fault of the organ. normment a sound body, and low, extremely sharp, vibrate the tile. The reverb, Leslie once en route, giving a spatial aspect of music, I tell you a. .. Ideal for rock trend psychdlique space ... Other configuration INTERESTED: plugging in a guitar amp through a saturated Wah Wah. without the Wah Wah, was Deep Purple, with Wah Wah, there is Attila, Caravan and other prog band style. Canterbury. Of course, others can do Hammond trs also good, but good.


Used for three years.
Particularity: Hammond is class! The sound is not the standard Hammond, but Hammond plutt a hybrid (for the stamp "dry") and Farfisa (for the available effects, mainly the vibrato switch and the "repeat" associated with the knob " rate ". giving it its own personality with good versatility trs anyway.
OCCAZ bought by my ERRF with a Leslie 770 for 1200, which is slightly prs market price for this brand new and not hardware that requires a good maintenance (problem with my contacts).
First Hammond organ on which I rel jou. No regrets, it's a good bte trs, trs endearing. 'Worse is not I who pay.
For purists of the B3, it may not be the top, but in its class, it's his note.
