With the SK1 Hammond moves to the stage piano segment. The 61-key Hammond SK1 is particularly compact and offers both authentic Hammond sounds, which can be adjusted in detail, and a wide range of other instruments. Pianos, harpsichord, clavinet, accordion but also saxophones and synth-pads are on board. The SK1 is competing with the red Swedish instruments. This Stage Keyboard weighs only 7 kilos but contains the soul of the great Hammonds and Leslies. At home, in the studio but also on stage, the SK1 is a practical and inspiring instrument.
SK-1: Stage Keyboard, but also really Hammond?
The compact SK1 uses advanced modeling technology for the production of the Hammond sound. The two VASE III sound generators offer 96 fully adjustable tone wheels. Whether you are looking for a gritty, old sound or just for a tight, ripping rock sound: it can be adjusted in a few hands. As a starting point you have 12 Hammond profiles and 17 parameters. In addition, 8 extremely realistic Leslies are on board, which can also be adapted. In addition to the Hammond violence, there is also a choice of Vox and Farfisa organs.
Pipe organ and instrument collection
For classical repertoire there is a large pipe organ with 32 registers built into it. Through the drawbars, the votes can be selected and even adjusted. In band occupations, the 37 other instruments of the SK1 are a godsend. Samples from Yamaha C-7 and CP70, Rhodes, DX7, Clavinet D6, various wind instruments and some synthesizer presets ensure that the SK1 can be used in every song and style. Each instrument has been sampled and programmed with an eye for detail. Finally, there is even a Music Player built in, so that WAV and MP3 files can be played, for example as a backing track. The Hammond SK1: really Hammond, but much more than an organ.
