A Hammond B3 you can tuck under your arm Amazingly, the Hammond Sk1-73 packs the swirling sonic fortitude of the legendary B3 into a tidy package weighing under 16 pounds. The first Hammond portable to feature a wide range of Extra Voices, the Sk1-73's Drawbar section serves up genuine B3 gestalt, replete with all the traditional features: real mechanical Drawbars, Chorus Vibrato, Touch-response Percussion, and an outrageously convincing digital Leslie rotary speaker emulation.
Pure organ sounds for your gigs and sessions
When it comes to organ sounds, most purists insist on the real thing. The Sk1-73 walks like a Hammond and talks like a Hammond. It's just several hundred pounds lighter and fits in your Mini. The Drawbar section is a complete Hammond Organ with all the functions. Hammond's VASE III digital tone-wheel sound generators deliver voicings so convincing, you'll be looking around for a hidden Leslie cabinet.
All the keyboard sounds you want and need
The Hammond Sk1-73 houses great Vx and Farf combo organ models, plus a potpourri of fine classical Pipe Organ voices derived from Hammond's 935 Church Organ. Acoustic and Electric Pianos, Clavs, Accordions, Vintage String Synth, Wind Instruments, and Tuned Percussion round out the soundset. All the sounds you need for any gig. If you're hankering for those swirluptuous, authentic B3 tones but don't have a road crew and a tractor-trailer, this is your chance. Hook up with the Hammond Sk1-73 and give your music some lovin'.
