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.
