Hammond SK1 Overview

The Sk1-88 from Hammond carries on the tradition of the original drawbar/tonewheel concept first developed in 1935. The single manual digital recreation provides the essential keyboard sounds required to play any show in any style, including a genuine and vintage-perfect Hammond organ along with an advanced digital Leslie processor. The 88-key Fatar keyboard has a light enough feel for an organist's comfort, while having the "heft" to satisfy a piano player. The keyboard automatically adjusts the "depth" of key contact making all playing comfortable, and the keys are shaped to allow traditional Hammond "moves" like sweep and glissando.

In addition to the authentic Tonewheel voices, the keyboard adds other performance sounds including an acoustic grand, Rhodes, Wurli, and FM pianos. Clavinet, harpsichord, accordion, wind, brass, synthesizer, and tuned percussion voices are also available and can be played "solo" or added to the organ voices. The Organ Generator may be switched to provide authentic models of the Vox Continental, Vox Jaguar and Farfisa combo organs, all of which can be registered in their original forms. A fourth organ mode provides thirty-two ranks of classical ("Church") pipe organ voices derived from the company's model 935 church organ.

Editing capabilities allow for controlling/adding volume, timbre, leakage, and motor noise to each of the ninety-six digital tonewheels, faithfully delivering any Hammond organ's individual personality, with the ability to save these profiles for instant recall. Twelve factory digital tonewheel profiles ranging from "showroom clean" to "road worn" are available for instant personalizing.

Chorus/vibrato, percussion, key click, and overdrive are adjustable, with all settings saved with every preset. The Pipe Organ voices are also scaling/voicing capable. The Fatar semi-weighted keyboards are designed to feel like a vintage B-3, yet remain comfortable for any pianist, with variable touch "depth."

The Sk1-88 can be used as a MIDI controller, with the ability to address three external zones. An onboard MP3/WAV music player is available for playing backing tracks, break music, educational aids, or any other tunes combined with the organ's stereo output. A physical Leslie speaker can be connected via a dedicated Leslie jack, as can various optional foot controller pedals.
