Packed full of powerful features and capabilities, the Hammond SKX is nevertheless the smallest and lightest dual-manual stage keyboard that Hammond have ever produced. In this way you will be getting a vast creative capacity in an easy to manoeuvre package.
The customisation possibilities are made easier than ever before with the SKX’s huge Voice Library feature.

On top of that, Hammond’s presets range has been updated, retaining older classics and bringing in fresh new artist-curated presets. With all of this provided in a model which is only 16.9 kg, the SKX reaches new heights of practicality and quality all at once.Authenticity
Hammond are the undisputed king of organs, and so it is only right that they give you the real deal when it comes to the sound quality. To this end, Virtual Tonewheel technology allows for the faithful reproduction of many of the iconic vintage Hammond organs, such as the seminal B-3. This, joined by popular Transistor Organ sounds and some 32 classic pipe organ voices, all makes for a rich, rewarding and authentic playing experience.
The Touch-Response Percussion as well as the chorus-vibrato function bring the sound right back to the roots of the Hammond Organ. Thanks to state of the art digital transformation, processes of intricate re-modelling can ensure that the SKX sounds just like the original classics always did.Exciting Customisation Features
The level of care and passion which has gone into producing this instrument is easy to tell as you play. Specifically, the amount of extra features which contribute to a wide range of playing possibilities. Harmonic Drawbars, as well as a variety of Tonewheel Voices, open up your ability to tweak the sound as you wish, whilst giving you a playing experience that takes things back to the original Hammond Organ style. Taking things forward past the capabilities of traditional organs though, features such as the unique twin Extravoice feature make it easy for you to combine keyboard voices so that you have complete control.
Another brilliant addition is the digitally controlled octave shift that allows you to the raise or lower the range by one octave. The manual bass setting too gives you a lot of playing control, enabling you to play the pedal voice on the lower manual. The transpose function meanwhile allows for simpler key changes, and the Prochord function allows users to play complex phrasings with a single finger. On top of all of that, the SKX can also be used as a MIDI master keyboard.
