Different, but I love it!!

What is your opinion of this product?
The SK2 sounds real good though it is not a B3. In order to make a dual manual organ portable, there had to be some compromises and changes. The SK2 is plastic and all transistor but many of the sounds of an authentic B3 can be achieved with some tweaking. There are a number of sounds on the SK2 that allow it to function as more than an organ but it is not a do-it-all keyboard. The piano sounds are okay as are the other voices. Some of them I like and some I don't care for but many of them are useful. The Leslie simulation is excellent. More than anything, the SK2 is an organ that one person handle. It will take some getting used to but keep in mind that the only thing that is a B3 is a B3 with the 122 Leslie. If you are looking for a portable B3, this is not it. For those seeking a good portable organ with some other very useable voices then you may be very happy with the SK2. I use the SK2 and a Casio PX-560M as my set-up. I love it. A good case for the SK2 is necessary as well.

Underwhelmed
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.

Sweet sounds
What is your opinion of this product?
Right out of the box and music to my ears...I am glad I went with this product and made the choice through AMS...flawless process to purchase and deliver. I'm new to Hammond products and have always loved the sounds. The instrument is stunningly pleasing to look at and most importantly a dream to play...my ears are happy and and that makes me a happy guy.

The ultimate portable solution!
Like the XK-3 I replaced this with, top notch. So far no problems with it.
I was playing the XK3 splitting the keyboard into 2 zones for right and left hand (plus kicking bass on an XPK-100). Having 2 manuals plus the extra voices and being able to use both, plus having it all under 40 lbs, is a gigger's dream.
The controls are very intuitive, and diving into the parameters is not too much different than what I was used to on the XK. The manual helps, but be prepared to dig thru pages on the display to get to what you want.
The Hammond sound is excellent. The digital Leslie is their best yet. The extra voices are usable...I was carrying my Kurzweil PC3 along with the XK, and the extra voices are no match for that, but overall they cut through the mix and are good enough that all I need to bring is the SK2. Playing through QSC K10's in stereo, the digital Leslie will fool most ears, my setup has been reduced to about half, both in weight and time.
Your general opinion of this product.
Have had a blast playing it both at home and on gigs. I do some wedding ceremonies, plus I accompany singers at different functions. The pianos, plus the pipe organ, not to mention the Hammond sound, this thing has everything I need.
The Fatar action is pretty good, "real" pianists may complain about the "synth" action keys, but there are parameters to set for velocity to adjust for your playing style.
I think this was a good value, no regrets about my purchase.
