[NAMM] Hammond introduces the XK-1c organ
Hammond is attending Summer NAMM in Nashville where they introduce the new XK-1c portable organ.
The Hammond XK-1c is a portable organ that uses the same Virtual Tonewheel simulation engine than the Hammond B3-mkII and you'll find the classic chorus/vibrato effects as well as the Touch Responsive Percussion. Hammond adds that a Leslie digital emulation is included, along with the traditional drawbars.
The XK-1c offers several sound customization options, for instance you can reproduce the sound of any Hammond organ / Leslie cab and save parameters in patches. 64 factory patches are included and 64 user patches are also available. It is also possible to make changes on the fly.
The organ features two transistor combo organ and 28 classical pipe organ sounds, all of them can be registered with the drawbars.
The Hammond XK-1c organ will be available in september for a US list price of $1495. Details are available at hammondorganco.com (PDF file).
