HAMMOND ANNOUNCES NEW Sk SERIES INSTRUMENTS

Hamm_SoundSoulOne
Sk1-73-TopSK1_88 copy

At the 2013 Winter NAMM Hammond announced the release of two new additions to their highly popular Sk series of stage/performance keyboard instruments. The Sk1-73 and Sk1-88 models feature 73 and 88 note keyboards, respectively. The two new models join the original Sk1 (61 keys) and the Sk2 (twin 61 note keyboards). All four models share the same specifications.

The new models are in response to the many piano players buying their first Hammond, surprised that such a rich and responsive set of piano voices and more emanates from an instrument equipped with drawbars. Those piano players are more comfortable playing a longer keyboard, so the new 73 and 88 note keybeds have the Hammond-style "waterfall" keyboards to accommodate traditional Hammond style performance but are also semi-weighted to facilitate comfortable piano play.

The Sk series, released last year, provides the keyboard player a comprehensive set of essential sounds suitable for any style of music, featuring an authentic Hammond Organ with Digital Leslie Speaker. Acoustic and Electric Grand Pianos, Electric Pianos (Rhodes, Wurlitzer, and FM), Clavinet, Accordion, Transistor Organ (Vox, Farfisa, and Jaguar), Synth and Orchestral voices plus 32 ranks of authentic pipe organ voices complete the sound set. All of these sounds reside in ultra-lightweight units that range from the 15 pound Sk1 to the 35 pound Sk2. It's everything needed to play any show in any genre.

The Hammond name has been the brand leader in organs for 77 years, but modern players want highly portable (yet potent) instruments that provide multiple voices.. The Sk's are able to jump from screaming, vintage B-3 to a funky clav, to a stately Grand Piano all in the press of a button, and every inch of the sound engine can be modified and adapted to meet the player's needs.

12 different Hammond Profiles with 18 discrete parameters combined with 16 Digital Leslie Profiles give you thousands of Vintage and Modern Hammond tones, Add to that 36 Discrete Keyboard, Synth and Orchestral Voices with 114 variations and you have a comprehensive foundation keyboard instrument that is the centerpiece of any player's rig.

The Sk1-73 will be available in the UK from Mid February and the Sk1-88 from mid May 2013. RRP are £1699 and £1899 respectively, although internet shop prices may be cheaper.

Bob's story ….

Ive been playing since I was 6 when I was allowed to play my Gran’s piano on a Saturday morning. I was originally trained on the trumpet but never progressed much beyond School Orchestra level.  One day I was listening to an old 78 record and heard some blues and I was hooked. The sound was terrible but the wonderful music of the blues just got into my heart.  On this old record was a Hammond and I knew from hearing this from the first moment this was what I wanted to play.
 
308346_271194286226035_1468726_n

I got a chance to play an old B3 a few years ago and this was the moment knew I wanted one but cost and space was a problem. A few years ago I started playing with “Wendys Lost Boys” and I steadily progressed from an Oberhiem B3 simulator and Hefner Leslie simulator pedal to an single manual XK3 and Leslie 860 (Thank you Ebay). Although at this time I was using a stack of keyboards and midi gear on stage I was only happy when I was on the Hammond playing the blues. When Wendys Lost Boys folded (Arrgh girlfriends in the band!) I bought a lower manual for the XK3 and stopped using the synths and midi gear all together as the Hammond was such a nice instrument to play just sitting on it brought a smile to my face. I also do some charity work, which requires me to play a church organ so, I made up some drawbar settings that resembled what I had so I was able to practice with the same sound. (Between you and I the Hammond is a much nicer instrument than some of the church organs I have played!).
 
Late 2010 I bought and moved onto my 50ft Narrow boat and installed my studio in the living area with a squeeze (Hammond Xk3 system, Andomenda A6, several Yamaha DX7 and a 24 track mixer with Alesis Monitors) and for a year found the peace and tranquility of the life on the canal beneficial to recording. I could take the boat out, tie up and turn the Leslie up with out neighbors complaining.  
 
Since the first day of playing the original B3 I have always lusted over one so earlier this year I decided to finally go for it but as I lived on a Narrow boat it had to be planned very carefully as I needed to get it on and off along with the Leslie so armed with an expandable ruler I found I could get the B3-P in so the order was placed.
 
When it arrived, In a large van, on a large pallet, I honestly thought it would never fit in but after Malc and Barry had unpacked it, it all fitted in just as I had planned.
 
What is it like to play? Well the answer is just perfect; the keyboard action is as smooth as silk. The sound is amazing and IMHO so much better than the XK3 and is a total joy to play. The only thing I regret is not getting it earlier and as for space, the dog is a bit peeved that her bed has moved but there is only so much you can fit in on a Narrow boat.
 
268562_248525431826254_454039_n
 
The band I play with now is more rock and blues so my Hammond fits in perfectly.
 
If you are interested in the blues I broadcast a live Internet radio show from my floating studio every Tuesday and Friday 10-midnight in the UK on
http://www.dekadance-radio.com and the show is also available on iTunes search Dekadance and select Ain’t Nuthin But Bob Blues.
 
Have fun and Go for it!
 
Bob Blues

At Hammond, there have been many new product launches through the remarkable history of this iconic brand.

From Laurens Hammond’s original ground breaking engineering developments, right up to the present, where Suzuki continue to invest in technological advances that enables the Hammond brand to move forward into the future of music making.

The new Hammond SK series, debuting at the 2011 Frankfurt Music Fair, illustrates the dedication of a company that truly understands and believes in its future.

These two new instruments represent all that has been asked for by keyboard performers, from all genres of music, over the last few years and brings to the market Hammond products that have evolved laterally but still maintain their essential core sound and performance characteristics.

There is no doubt that these new instruments mark the beginning of yet another chapter in the continuing Hammond story and we all are extremely excited by their inclusion into the range.

We will be bringing the new SK instruments to the UK in the very near future

DUBLIN MUSIC SHOW OCT 2010 Report and Short Movie ..

There was such a 'vibe' about this show (-:
As we had never exhibited in Ireland before we just did not know what to expect ?

Great venue .. great people . and lots & lots of interest in the HAMMOND range.

For the first time ever
I did NOT use a Leslie with the New B-3 !!
One of the new features of the B-3 mk2 is that it has a awesome Leslie simulator on board so I decided to use this show as an experiment to see how it would cope in a live situation.


The was result .... FANTASTIC ... No one could believe what they heard


A big thanks must go to John Hornby Skewes and HK AUDIO for supplying me with the incredible HK L.U.C.A.S MAX PA which I used for this show.

As some of you already will know I have used HK AUDIO PA and monitors on many shows around Europe over the past few years and in my opinion it ROCKS !! Check out the short movie below to hear the results and some information about their new ELEMENTS range.


I met all types of musicians at the show .. some pro players, lots of studio and production folk, and home players who were very excited to see the Hammond back in the spotlight.
One thing was common amongst all our visitors though .. and that was the shear amazement at how good the new generation Hammond Equipment is.


I really enjoyed this trip and had a great time .. not to mention one of our customers taking the New B-3 home with him straight from the show !!!


Thanks DUBLIN .. We'll Be Back ..,.
Cheers .. Malc
