Product Description

The Hammond SK2 Dual 61 Key Organ Keyboard is the SK1 plus 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 Hammond SK2 Organ 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 they have ever offered.

The Hammond SK2 Organ has Acoustic and Electric Pianos, Clavs, Accordions, Vintage String Synth, Wind Instruments and Tuned Percussion round out the specification.

What is your opinion of this product?
This is my 2nd Hammond and the 1st one (XK-1), was serviceable, but it was a lot to carry around for just an "organ sound." To be fair, I have never owned a vintage B-3, so taste is subjective. I thought the SK-2 would be a portable, versatile double manual board to save me from lugging around a multi keyboard set up. It wasn't. System issues. Freezing, lockups,etc., which I thought would be solved by updating the O/S. No. The vaulted "Hammond sound"? In a word, "Meh". Passable, but not great. The onboard effects? Useless. It is shameful (and disappointing) that Hammond would go so cheap on such a high priced board. The keyboard is a reduced scale, maybe 7/8 scale or so. For a board that costs $3K, this thing just screams CHEAP. I read all the reviews, watched many online video's, but if I had played one first, I never would have purchased the SK-2. MY advice: Try one in person first, before deciding if this is for you. I'll keep my Roland, Nord & Moog.
