Love Love Love!

Been a B3 player since the late 70s. Had an original XK-3 with a Leslie 3300. Great. Skipped a generation and bought this. Wow. Leslie engine stupendous. Make sure you play it in STEREO. Hammond/Suzuki's been working hard and it shows. And it's 15 pounds! A great buy!

In One Word: WOW!

I have owned quite a few of the Hammond clones starting with the XK2 and then both the XK3 and XK3C. For a short time I even had the SK1 that I did not like and could not stand the plastic endcaps. For quite a few years I have played the XK1 thru a New Ventilator or thru a Leslie 122. It was very good. I have had 4 different models of Nords and did not care for any of them. Either the acoustic pianos sounded too digital or the organ and leslie simulation sounded too digital. Outside of my full side Hammond B3 and leslie 122, I now have the new light weight with wood endcaps - XK1C. I am blown away by the feel of the keybed and the overall sound especially the Leslie Simulation. This new Hammond does not need to go through a Neo Ventilator because the new simulation is excellent. I did hook up the Vent and maybe it gave just a hint of improvement. Congrats to Hammond for this model. I would really like to see a lower keyboard made for this to make it a duo to be a perfect setup. This new 16 lb organ is clearly the best in the market today. I have played a few of the other non Hammonds and they just do not have the complete sound that this one has. Even the color of the waterfall keys are just about perfect and the feel is asesome. Thank You Hammond-Suzuki. I guess I would suggest a one piece duo keyboard of this model with a 2nd set of drawbars - just a suggestion.

Hammond XK-1C

Oh Yeah!! Have this paired with my Hammond XK-3C Pro-System, Nord C2D, Nord Stage 88 mixing into a A&H QU 16 or Mix-Wizard 16:4 & Speaker Pairs of QSC K12's, 10's & 8's. Monitor is a Space Station, Roland 550 or 880. Versatility +. Call Marcos Sanchez ext 1331 for QUALITY Sweetwater Service.

I bought this fellow because hauling my Nord C2 in the flight case was killing me. I could not be more pleased. The presets are great and navigating the panel very easy. The Leslie sim is more than usable,j jumping over to drawbars fast, and it is light as a feather. Sounds Kller!! And even better through a Leslie. If you need a dedicated single manual organ, I don't think you will be disappointed.

Hammond Fanatic

This Key board is awesome for home or on the road... I bought this for a homeless guy I have living with me that has been a been a pro since 1960's... He was in a huge depression since he lost his B3...was starting to get a little senile and this keyboard brought him back to life....He is blind and was happy to that he could find the controls easily and able to get the sounds he wanted and put them in the presets... He warned me that I was probably wasting my money as he highly doubted that anything could compare with the real thing...he's thrilled with this keyboard and has been blowing crowds away ever since
