News Hammond SK1

The Hammond SK1 has the classic Hammond sound, as well as a series of other voices, like Acoustic and Electric Pianos, Clav, Vintage Combo Organs, Vintage String Synthesizer, Accordions, Pipe Organ, and others.

According to Hammond, the SK1 isn’t a watered-down “light” or “clone” version of a Hammond. The classic features that “make” a Hammond are included. Real Mechanical Drawbars, “Waterfall” Keyboard, Touch Response Percussion, Chorus Vibrato, and a Digital Leslie is designed to give the big speaker a run for the money.

The SK1, in addition to its Hammond tone, adds Acoustic Piano, “Rho”, “Wurl”, and “FM” Electric Pianos, and funky Clav tones. Besides the Hammond, there are two other types of vintage combo organs (“Farf” and “Vx”).

The SK1 has a selection of Accordion voices. Rounding out the voice palette are a variety of wind instruments, synth tones (including a vintage string synthesizer), and melodic percussion. You can play all of the Extra Voices “solo” or in combination with the Hammond Drawbar Voices. The Voice Library may be expanded by downloading voices from the Hammond website and installing them via the onboard USB port.

There are a number of Classical Pipe Organ Stops. The SK1 can work as a “portative” organ forvRemote Worship Services, Chapel Duty, or vocal/instrumental recital accompaniment.

For more advanced players, the SK1 is offered in a more compact, double-manual version called the SK2, with identical specifications.

The SK2 weighs in at a 35 pounds.

Pricing & Availability
Map prices are: $1999 for the SK1 and $2895 for the SK2. Both models will ship in mid-June 2011.
