The Hammond SK2: B-3 in a BoxWhat's better than a Hammond B-3 you can tuck under your arm? Two of them - two keyboards, that is. The Hammond SK2 packs dual 61-note keyboards - so you can play it as a two-manual organ, or assign the Drawbar/Extra Voice divisions to your choice of keyboard. With onboard digital Leslie rotary speaker emulation, acoustic and electric pianos, clavs, wind instruments, and even accordion, the SK2 is effectively a B-3 in a box (albeit, a small one). Weighing in at under 36 pounds, this featherweight is a heavyweight when it comes to genuine Hammond sound.
Speaking of genuine Hammond sounds, most purists insist on the real thing. The SK2 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: real Mechanical Drawbars, Chorus Vibrato, Touch-Response Percussion, and of course that delicious Digital Leslie. Hammond's VASE III digital tone-wheel sound generators deliver voicings so convincing, you'll be looking around for a hidden Leslie cabinet.
Vx and Farf combo organ models are also onboard, as well as an assortment 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.
If you've always lusted after those swirluptuous vintage organ tones, but don't have a road crew and a tractor-trailer, now's your chance. Hook up with the Hammond SK2 and give your music some lovin'.

The New Standard In Stage Organs
by The Pro from Atlanta, Georgia"Compact and handsome" were the first two words that came to mind when I unboxed the SK2. Then I found the hidden handle on the back panel and realized instantly how easy this keyboard would be to set... read more [+]up at a gig. It's smaller than you think at only 35lbs. but just as big on the inside as ever. The classic B3 sound is there although the simulated tube distortion misses some of the warmth and punch of the Hammond XK3c's real tube preamp. It growls well enough but tubes do make a difference. Don't worry about only having one set of drawbars - most people set and forget the lower manual drawbars anyway. There are a wealth of in-depth controls that allow you to tweak the organ and Leslie sim to the nth degree or just call up presets instantly. This is a pocket B3, or at least the closest emulation to date.

There are a lot of worship settings in the organ department, from reeds to pipes to all-stops-out gospel. Add to that the fact that you can have organ on one manual and horns on another and you can see where the SK2 shines. In fact, being able to mix instruments like piano on lower manual and organ on upper is what sets the SK2 apart from it's higher priced Nord offerings like the C2/C2D which can't do that. A small church or traveling gospel group that needs an organ shouldn't look any further.
Then there's the "extra" sounds and the best of the bunch is the acoustic piano. It clean, bright and has plenty of cut-through tone.... you'll use this a lot. Dedicated digital pianos do sound better but the SK's pianos are gig-worthy enough that you could easily use the SK2 on stage alone without missing a digital piano. The electric pianos are also very nice though not as well done as the acoustic pianos. Clavinet is well done. From there you have good horns and a mix of flutes, synths, saxes and other sounds that are less well developed but useful. You can also load sounds from Hammond's online library, such as the realistic Chamber Strings.
High point: this is a bang-on next generation B3. Low point: some of the non-multisampled extra voices are weak and pointless (do we really need a Jet sound?). But overall you can't get a more authentic or more portable Hammond organ sound anywhere, and the extra voices are the icing on the cake. Take it home. close [-]
Incredible Playing Experience
by Jazman from COI purchased a Hammond SK2 after playing the single manual SK1. The experience of having a real Hammond organ plus an additional manual to play electric piano or another sound is incredible.

Hammond is to be commended for all of the different Leslie models they put in the SK1 and SK2. Most clone wheels have a single digital rotary speaker model. This has 8 all of which are extremely good. I would also like to comment on the action which is excellent for all of the different categories of keys. The on board controls are very accessible to change sounds on the fly and the ability to modify the very tone wheels themselves is varied and very easy to access.
This thing is a pleasure to play and, in my opinion, better than the real thing which I have owned since the 70's. Incredible job Hammond Suzuki. close [-]
