Hammond Keyboards

Here at Bonners Music we are proud to be able to offer a superb collection of keyboards from Hammond, surely one of the most iconic names in the business.

From inventing and perfecting the drawbar and tone wheel technology that is now ubiquitous all the way back in 1934, these were always people who cared about music and would put everything into developing game changing products.

In 1955 the Hammond B-3’s release was a momentous day which changed the landscape of contemporary music and that change has reverberated throughout all that followed, with its sound being unmistakeable and uniquely part of the Hammond brand.

But this dedication to pioneering developments which shape and reshape the world of music is still alive and stronger than ever today. Now, Hammond has the SK series, available to buy at Bonners, which captures the original B-3 sound and brings it into a new and exciting modern context. You don’t just get the original sound, but a whole host of high definition sounds in all styles, meaning that it has a level of versatility second to none, ready for the studio, for the road or for the home.

In addition, and also available to buy at Bonners with some great discounts, Hammond has worked tirelessly to produce some truly stunning keyboards in its XK5 range, keyboards so good that they are willing to all them their ‘New Original’. These instruments use all new sound engines, hybrid multi-chain key contact systems, and virtual matching transformers to produce an astounding playing experience, offering you the perfect combination of richness, colour and feel.

As well as other keyboards from Hammond available from Bonners Music from the XK1c and the SK2 series, there is also a great collection of pedal boards, expression peddles, Leslie speakers and cables, benches and stands. And, as if that isn’t enough, Bonners also is offering some great cut price deals on many items within the Hammond Keyboard range!

Three Drawbar Sets The SKX offers the advantage of three independent sets of drawbars - UPPER, LOWER & PEDAL. This means you can craft your own organ sounds using real drawbars - just like the original classic Hammond tonewheel organs. Additional Voice Sections There are now two independent sample voice sections which can be activated together to produce layered sounds. You can either layer two voices together on the same manual, or have different sampled sounds on UPPER / LOWER manuals. These additional voice sections can be layered with the drawbar sounds, and the volume can be mixed for each sound generator. Easy To Use - On Stage, At Home, Or In The Studio The SKX comes pre-loaded with 100 factory sound programs - expertly created to cover the most popular Hammond tone wheel organ presets, as well as bread & butter piano, synth, electric piano and other sounds that you�ll need every day. In addition to the 100 presets, there are 100 user location for you to store your own sounds. The expanded memory on the SKX allows you to download even more �extra� voices from the Hammond website for loading into the instrument. This means you can tailor your SKX to suit your own individual playing needs. Authentic Vintage Sound The SKX uses �Virtual Tonewheel� technology to faithly reproduce the sound of vintage Hammond organs including the legendary B-3. All the important sound characteristics (and imperfections!) of the original instrument have been analysed and recreated in detail. There are also popular Transistor Organ sounds which can be controlled in the original way, as well as 32 high quality classical pipe organ voices. The SKX is the perfect instrument to play a wide variety of musical styles. Percussion & Chrous/Vibrato The original organ percussion sound is present on the SKX and is created using Hammond�s exclusive Touch Response Percussion system - just as it is found on the vintage instruments. As the Virtual Tonewheel Generator provides tonal accuracy, the classic �Mechanical Scanner� is precisely Digitally-Modeled, providing the timeless Hammond Chorus-Vibrato effect. The effect may be applied independently to each Manual, and again, nearly every aspect of the effect can be tailored to your taste, including the characteristics relating to �age and wear� so desired by discerning players. LESLIE� SPEAKER SIMULATOR 77 years of building Don Leslie�s Masterpiece has given us the edge in developing its 21st Century Digital Edition. The HAMMOND�S essential partner is yours at every moment, with 8 factory profiles of the most famous Leslie models (122, 147, et. al.), and 8 User-definable profiles allowing you to tailor the response matching the Hammond you create with its perfect mate. The accuracy of sound is remarkable. Of course, should you wish to hook up a physical Leslie Cabinet, the traditional 11-pin jack is located on the rear panel, and the onboard controls (including the optional CU-1 �half moon� switch) perform exactly as you expect. THE EXTRA VOICE DIVISION The inclusion of Hi-Definition Acoustic and Electric Pianos, Clav, Bass, and Accordion voices compliment the Organ tones, and create in the SKX a comprehensive foundation keyboard, the backbone of any serious keyboard rig. The SKX�s keying system replicates the feel of a weighted keyboard when playing piano-type voices, yet remains supple and responsive to every Hammond Organ technique. Stepping further, the most-wanted Orchestral Voices-Strings, Woodwinds and Brass are represented, many featuring Hammond�s exclusive ProChord�, which brings complex voicing to single key play based on the chords YOU provide. An extensive Library of elective EXTRA VOICES is available without charge from www.hammondorganco.com, to expand the SKX in directions YOU choose. DIGITAL EFFECTS Two independent high-quality DSP units are aboard to provide Overdrive and other multi-effects to both the Organ and Extravoice Divisions. Over Drive Tremolo Auto Pan Wah-Wah Ring Modulator Phaser Flanger Chorus Delay Reverb Other Features OCTAVE SHIFT Digital Control allows flexibility of performance a Vintage Hammond is incapable of. You may independently raise or lower the Upper and Lower Manual�s range by one octave, allowing greater comfort of playing. PEDAL SUSTAIN A popular option for playing the Pedals or Manual Bass is Pedal Sustain, which allows the Pedal voice to smoothly decay upon release, much in the manner of a string bass. MANUAL BASS Allows the PEDAL part to be played on the LOWER manual of the SKX. You can choose from 3 modes,: Lowest played note only / Chord / Root notes as discriminated by chord played. LOWER to PEDAL Couples the LOWER manual registration to the PEDAL Part. TRANSPOSE Allows you to shift the entire pitch of the keyboard to match singers, soloists and the other instruments, or to simplify key changes. MASTER EQUALIZER Bass/Mid Gain/Mid Frequency/Treble PROCHORD Certain Extra Voice instruments are enhanced with the ProChord� function. This allows complex voicings to be played with one finger, based on chords played on the lower manual. 26 distinct chords are �parsed� by the ProChord� function, with proper passing tones provided to insure proper enharmonic continuity. MIDI MASTER KEYBOARD External Zones are available to enable the SKX to be used as a MIDI master keyboard. 3 on the Upper Keyboard, 2 on the Lower Keyboard, and 1 on the Pedal Clavier. USB TYPE �A� PORT A USB Type �A� port is included, intended for saving/loading setups, system updates, downloaded Extra Voice libraries, and the music player. The Music Player allows WAV/MP3 audio files to be controlled and played through the SKX Audio Outputs. LESLIE 11-PIN JACK A standard 11-pin Leslie jack is included on the rear panel. Attaching a Leslie here disables the Digital Leslie effect from the output, and allows the Leslie Cabinet to respond to the onboard Leslie Controls. If the attached Leslie is a 1-channel Model, the EXTRAVOICE Division remains at the LINE OUT Jacks. (requiring an additional non-rotary keyboard amplifier such as the Leslie Model LS2215 or LS2012)

Hammond XK-1C Digital OrganThe XK-1c is Hammond’s smallest and lightest Genuine Hammond Organ. A sharp contrast to the days when you needed a truck to haul around a B-3 Organ and a Leslie Speaker for that roaring Hammond sound, the XK-1c takes up much less space and is much easier to transport. The XK-1c still provides the full majesy and versatility of the industry standard B-3, but in a compact package weighing in at only 16 pounds.Following the lead of the wildly popular SK series of ultralight keyboards, the XK-1c uses the same Virtual Tonewheel “engine” as Hammond’s flagship B3-mkII Console Organ, with all the traditional elements, such as Hammond’s original Chorus/Vibrato and Touch-Response Percussion. The latest digital Leslie™ is also onboard, completing the classic setup, which is one of the most desired pieces of gear for any keyboard player in any genre of music.The XK-1c features extensive customization capabilities, allowing the Organ to be tailored into replicating any Hammond/Leslie vintage, with all settings stored in each patch. Most common aftermarket “Hot Rod” modifications are possible within the editing facilities, as well. A wide variety of different Hammond tones are contained in the factory patch library. There are 64 Factory patches and 64 User-programmable patches available.In addition to the Drawbar Profiles, the sounds of two of the most popular transistor combo organs are included, along with 28 equivalent ranks of Classical Pipe Organ sounds.

Hammond XK5 - the authentic Hammond Drawbar Organ The XK5 is a genuine Hammond Organ with Virtual Tone Wheels which emulate the traditional sound of legendary Hammond organs such as the B3, C3, A100 and L100 models, amongst many others. There are many clonewheel type keyboards on the market but nothing else provides the authentic sound except the real thing - the Hammond XK5. Multi-Contact Keyboard - Virtually! To remain faithful to the original Hammond Tone Wheel organs, a new Virtual Multi-Contact keyboard has been developed to give the same feeling and quick response to the player. The same unique response is felt where the different harmonics sound in sequence as the key is pressed. The iconic Hammond performance techniques from legendary players such as Jon Lord, Jimmy McGriff, Jimmy Smith, Keith Emerson, and countless others can now be recreated on the XK5 - the only Virtual Tonewheel organ which has a multi-contact keyboard. 5 Sets Of Drawbars & Preset Keys Keeping in line with the tradition of the B3 & C3 models, the XK5 offers the player 5 sets of drawbars (two sets for both upper & lower parts, plus a set for bass pedals). The black preset keys at the bottom of the keyboard allows for instant switching of preset drawbard configurations, making the XK5 the ideal choice for live performers. Virtual Leslie/Vibrato Effects With Amp Simulator The Leslie speaker emulator in the XK5 is definitely one of the best we have heard, and negates the need for an external effects box, which players have been using in recent years. The Leslie effect simulates the sound of various tone cabinets including 122, 125, 145 and PR40 models. The XK5 is equipped with tube circuits to simulate the pre-amplifier of the B3/C3 models. This provides warmth to the sound, and when the overdrive is applied, the XK5 rocks like no other clonewheel keyboard ever made. In addition to the pre-amp simulator and overdrive circuits, the XK5 offers graphic equalizer for individual parts, and multi effects to completely change your sound. There is also a Master Equalizer for when you need to adjust the tone to suit the venue in which you are performing. Powerful MIDI Master Keyboard Functions External zones are available so that you can use the XK5 to control other MIDI equipment. Settings for external zones are stored within the patch settings which enables MIDI information to be sent as soon as patches are recalled. Store your favourite sounds & settings The XK5 comes pre-loaded with 100 preset patches - these are complete voice setups which cover a wide variety of musical genres. There are some specially programmed patches which emulate the sounds created by famous Hammond players, as well as the basic sounds you�ll need for everyday Hammond organ playing. There are also 100 user locations for you to store your own sounds. Patches can be recalled using the black preset keys at the bottom of the keyboard, or selected by using the value knob. Each patch can be named, which is clearly displayed on the backlit display screen. Expandable XK5 System With the use of the optional XLK5 lower keyboard and XPK250, the XK5 can be expanded to become a console style two manual instrument with matching pedalboard. The XK5 is equipped with both USB A (to host) & USB B (to device) ports. The �to host� connector is used for connection to personal computers for MIDI recording etc, and the �to device connector� is for connecting to a common USB Flash drive which can be used for backing up your sounds & patches, or applying software upgrades to the instrument.

The iconic Hammond performance techniques from legendary players such as Jon Lord, Jimmy McGriff, Jimmy Smith, Keith Emerson, and countless others can now be recreated on the XK5 - the only Virtual Tonewheel organ which has a multi-contact keyboard. 5 Sets Of Drawbars & Preset Keys Keeping in line with the tradition of the B3 & C3 models, the XK5 offers the player 5 sets of drawbars (two sets for both upper & lower parts, plus a set for bass pedals). The black preset keys at the bottom of the keyboard allows for instant switching of preset drawbard configurations, making the XK5 the ideal choice for live performers. Virtual Leslie/Vibrato Effects With Amp Simulator The Leslie speaker emulator in the XK5 is definitely one of the best we have heard, and negates the need for an external effects box, which players have been using in recent years. The Leslie effect simulates the sound of various tone cabinets including 122, 125, 145 and PR40 models. The XK5 is equipped with tube circuits to simulate the pre-amplifier of the B3/C3 models. This provides warmth to the sound, and when the overdrive is applied, the XK5 rocks like no other clonewheel keyboard ever made. In addition to the pre-amp simulator and overdrive circuits, the XK5 offers graphic equalizer for individual parts, and multi effects to completely change your sound. There is also a Master Equalizer for when you need to adjust the tone to suit the venue in which you are performing. Powerful MIDI Master Keyboard Functions External zones are available so that you can use the XK5 to control other MIDI equipment. Settings for external zones are stored within the patch settings which enables MIDI information to be sent as soon as patches are recalled. Store your favourite sounds & settings The XK5 comes pre-loaded with 100 preset patches - these are complete voice setups which cover a wide variety of musical genres. There are some specially programmed patches which emulate the sounds created by famous Hammond players, as well as the basic sounds you�ll need for everyday Hammond organ playing. There are also 100 user locations for you to store your own sounds. Patches can be recalled using the black preset keys at the bottom of the keyboard, or selected by using the value knob. Each patch can be named, which is clearly displayed on the backlit display screen. Expandable XK5 System With the use of the optional XLK5 lower keyboard and XPK250, the XK5 can be expanded to become a console style two manual instrument with matching pedalboard. The XK5 is equipped with both USB A (to host) & USB B (to device) ports. The �to host� connector is used for connection to personal computers for MIDI recording etc, and the �to device connector� is for connecting to a common USB Flash drive which can be used for backing up your sounds & patches, or applying software upgrades to the instrument.

The new XLK-5 lower manual uses the same key-bed and multi-contact system as the XK5 single keyboard. Using the same cabinet design as the main XK5 keyboard, the XLK5 integrates perfectly to create a fully integrated two manual organ. Remove the existing side panels from the main unit (a quick and simple operation), slide it into place, and you have an integrated dual-manual rig with a seamless appearance.
The Leslie 2101 mk2, just like its predecessor, is a complete stand-alone Leslie unit. This versatile multiple-channel Leslie can be connected to any keyboard or organ requiring an amplifier with a single channel or multi-channel input. A newly designed vacuum tube preamp and overdrive section, and an advanced Digital Leslie simulator enhance the overal sound quality of this outstanding Leslie product. The 2101 amplifier contains two stationary channels, namely, left and right, and a rotary channel. Each of the stationary channels is powered by a new 75W RMS amplifier and the rotary channel is powered by a 50W RMS amplifier. This gives this Leslie a total output of 200W RMS. An 11-pin Leslie-socket as well as phone-jack inputs are provided for the rotary channel and for the left and right stationary channels. The musician can adjust the slow- and fast-speed, the rise- and fall-time, as well as the brake-time. Plus... these settings can be saved. A MIDI terminal enables control of many of the Leslie functions from your organ or keyboard. Best of all..., it maintains the traditional Leslie sound !
