New Hammond Organs - Model SK1 and Model SK2

We have two new releases from Hammond, lightweight, full featured organs … model SK 1 and model SK 2.

Hammond SK1, the ultra-portable new organ, gather all the tradition and all the soul of the Vintage B-3 into a trim 15 pound pack. It comes with a wide series of other voices like Acoustic and Electric Pianos, Clav, Vintage Combo Organs, Vintage String Synthesiser, Accordions, Pipe Organs and many other.

The SK Series aren’t clones of other Hammond Organs even if all the classic features that make a Hammond are included: Real Mechanical Drawbars, “Waterfall” Keyboard, Touch Response Percussion, Chorus Vibrato. In two words you can say that your eyes see portable but your ears hear and your touch says B-3.
