Organ or Piano, you'll love the Sk1-88

Hammond Sk1-88 Portable Keyboard/Organ will solve your dilemma. If your gig requirements include both authentic B3 mojo and inspiring pianos, you're probably lugging more than one keyboard onstage. Say goodbye to that. The Sk1-88 sports a sweet and innovative Fatar action with key shapes and weighting that juice your organ sweeps and glissandos while having the heft to satisfy hardcore pianists. And it weighs in at a svelte 27 pounds. Packed with B3 essentials (including physical drawbars), addictive playability, and boatloads of gig-ready sounds, the Hammond Sk1-88 is the one keyboard you need.

Hammond Sk1-88 Portable Keyboard/Organ at a Glance:

  • Seriously, a B3 you can tuck under your arm

  • Pure organ sounds for your gigs and sessions

Seriously, a B3 you can tuck under your arm

A Hammond B3 you can tuck under your arm? Amazingly, the Hammond Sk1-88 packs the swirling sonic fortitude of the legendary B3, plus an armory of essential sounds into a tidy package weighing in at 27 pounds. The Sk1-88 features a wide range of Extra Voices, and the Sk1-88'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 Sk1-88 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 tonewheel 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 Sk1-88 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 Sk1-88 and give your music some lovin'.

SK 1-88

If your a keyboard player and tired of packing heavy gear this is a great keyboard. Walk into a gig like a guitar player, a bag and a small amp. Fantastic piano samples as well.

Great organ sounds

The sk1-88 has the outstanding organ sounds as expected. With other great sounds on the system. I was not impressed with the piano sounds. I have placed it on a stage and had to remove it twice because the musician would not play it because of the piano sounds. Over now I use it as a stage portable stage organ only. The compactness and weight of this unit make it a must have for the true Hammond sound.
