Hammond introduces SK-1 portable organ
Hammond has introduced the SK-1, a portable organ featuring 9 adjustable mechanical drawbars.
The Hammond SK1 is the first “Ultra-Portable” organ in its history, weighing in at just 15 pounds, and the first Hammond portable to feature a wide range of Extra Voices.
The “Drawbar” section is a complete Hammond Organ with all the traditional features: Real Mechanical Drawbars, Chorus Vibrato, Touch-Response Percussion, and the most authentic Digital Leslie we have ever offered.
“Vx” and “Farf” combo organ models are also available, as well as an assortment of fine classical Pipe Organ voices derived from our 935 Church Organ. Acoustic and Electric Pianos, Clavs, Accordions, Vintage String Synth, Wind Instruments and Tuned Percussion round out the specification.
The SK2 model adds a second 61 note keyboard for added convenience-you may play the SK2 as a two-manual organ, or assign the Drawbar/Extravoice divisions to your choice of keyboard.
The SK1 is priced at $1,999 USD (MAP) and the SK2 at $2,895 USD (MAP). Expected shipping is mid-June, 2011.
