The Hammond SK2: B-3 in a Box

What's better than a Hammond B-3 you can tuck under your arm? Two of them! 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 swirling 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'.

Hammond SK2 - Amazing instrument

I purchased the Hammond SK2 along with the Rolland 550 amp. I have read practically every publication I could find and watched as many videos as possible before this purchase. I am not a youngster and started playing the organ at age 15 after playing the accordion since age 7. I started out with a Philips organ and Fender bass keys with an acoustic amp. I then purchased a Farfisa duo compact with a couple Leslie speaker cabinets. I always dreamed of owning a Hammond B-3 but could never afford one. I played in a couple of bands one of which won number 1 in New York City contest back in 1971. We played cover music. I loved my Farfisa but always dreamed of the B-3. Well the Sk2 is basically a portable B-3. Incredible sound and the digital Leslie sounds like the real deal even with my Rolland 550 which has all the power I need. I am still experimenting with it only to be more in love with it. I even own a Yamaha Clavinova which is a fantastic instrument. This Hammond is by far the best instrument I ever owned. The EX50 expression pedal is a must also that I purchased. It took me two years to make this decision but well worth the wait. Jeff Jent my sales engineer was fantastic thru the whole experience. Sweetwater made it easy and a pleasure.

Hammond Sk2 - Awesome!

After not playing keyboards for nearly 30yrs, the SK2 and pedals are perfect for my needs. Unlike my old console it is easy to move and store, even in a closet! (And it even sounds like my old B3!)The only thing I would like to see an update for (I think this could be done through software?) is the Music Player. - Add an option in the Chain Options for LOOP (so the track could just keep looping non-stop).or at least add an option for Time Remaining in the Information Center Display.

Sounds great

This is my first keyboard and I do love it. The sound is just like a B3 and really what more could you ask for. You can not go wrong with this SK2 Hammond keyboard. There is one thing, sound when pressing keys down..that is the only thing I don't care for but concerning the sound it is A #1.


So here it goes...yes there are many many portable organ choices out there and it can get very confusing. For the well schooled egg head types this won't appeal to you but for you soul surfers like me this is the TRUTH. Here are my candid remarks from a Hammond player since the early 70's. I came from the Hammond school, A-100 with 122 then graduated to a B-3 with two 122's. In the day it was unbeatable, the sound perfect and undeniable. Fast forward to 2015. I'm 68 now, still healthy and rockin" it out from every avenue and yes, I have been playing an SK-2 sitting on a K&M Table since mid summer really to complement a country music band from Texas that needed a organ player. I'm running twin Roland 550's 180 watts horns in stereo and 15's. The leslie sim is superb and absolutely real. It has taken me a few months to tweak it out parameter and best eq wise on amps and organ but what comes out of my amps is truly mind blowing. I believe it sounds better than a console organ and the ease of playing outstanding. I close my eyes and it is my B-3 raging from the old days. Forget made in China and I truly like to buy products made in America but after months of indecision I went this way and i am truly happy..I could have gone in any direction out there but I admit I am happy with my organ.....now the downside. Some of the patches/strings and such don't really have the tonal quality that I wish (SOME ARE OUTSTANDING) but this is a truly one size fits all ( I just bought a Kurzweil SP 4 from Matt and it is the perfect compliment for the organ) if all you want is to drag one keyboard to a gig and get the results you dreamed you wished you could years ago with one light weight instrument as your back ached from hauling that B-3 and Leslies and amps and wurly and moog around then go with this 40 pound EQUALIZER. . The overdrive need improvement (needs a tube OD really) but a neo-ventilator any size makes a good compromise for you guys who are hard to satisfy. I have tweaked my OD via organ and amps and believe me it sounds just a little less than ideal...just a little. So players take it from this old road veteran: don't be afraid of this Hammond. With the right amps (I like my big new Roland's) it is great... some people don't want to drag around two 60 pound amps but I realize that there is some compromise always as a keyboard player and I am willing to make the compromise amp wise rather than spend an infinite amount of time trying amp combo after amp combo.anyway it all fits perfect in my Rover. In closing not one musician I play with has ever said anything other than that rig sounds AWESOME. And these guys know the difference. PS just so you know I also play guitar..57Gold Top (15 years young from the custom shop in Nashville) with Bigsby and early 80's Strat. I run a fully modded Fender Blues Jr. I bought from Rob Espinosa from "ITS A BEAUTIFUL DAY" fame so I know about tone..this thing is sick so yes I do understand tone from several angles. Oh and by the way I am going to get a Leslie 3300 just for fun..I'm curious about it too many controls for this old dude but I'm willing to try it. OK I'm out and remember this is all just my opinion, right! Later!!!!

You can't beat a real Hammond

I have wanted a Hammond organ for a long time, but just could not afford one. After saving and scraping for a few years I was finally able to purchase one. It's the Hammond SK2. This unit has all the bells and whistles you would ever need at an affordable price. I had originally planned to save up next and purchase a Leslie. To my surprise the built in digital Leslie is amazing. The quality of the tone on the digital Leslie is good enough to work in nearly all locations you may be playing. To top it off was the outstanding work of their sales staff, "Marshall Oliver" who worked with me to make sure I had everything I needed without spending a fortune on items I didn't need.
