Despite many attempts to mimic the Hammond feel, sound and look over the years, none have quite hit the mark. Hammond have carved out a place in history and there is no sound or feel quite like an original Hammond. Over the years, Hammond have come up with a number of portable organs and now, for those dreaming of the latest portable dual-manual vintage Hammond, we have the Hammond SKX. This Hammond SKX review will outline the key features of the dual-manual.
The Hammond SKX hits the nail on the head in terms of portability and functionality.
The Hammond SKX evolved from the SK line as a result of design suggestions from professionals and hobbyists and has become a hugely popular choice for Hammond enthusiasts.
This Dual-manual Digital Organ combines an authentic Hammond Organ (packed with features) with a whole array of keyboard voices making it a hugely versatile instrument. Despite the fact that it is feature rich, the instrument is lightweight at just 47.2 pounds.
