The new Hammond XK-1c
Provides the full majesty and versatility of the industry standard B-3
in a compact package weighing just 7.5 Kg.

There was a time when the roaring sound of a genuine Hammond B-3 Organ and Leslie Speaker required a moving van with burly movers, and room enough on stage to stand 4 regular musicians. Those days are truly now behind. The new Hammond XK-1c provides the full majesty and versatility of the industry standard B-3 in a compact package weighing just 7.5 Kg.

Virtual Tonewheel Organ

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 B-3 mk2 Console Organ, with all the traditional elements, such as Hammond's original Chorus/Vibrato and Touch-Response Percussion.

  • Housing reinforced by aluminum structure

  • Retro-style wooden side-panels

  • Extremely compact / Light weight (7,5kg)

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.

Create Your Own Sound

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. The Combo Organ and Pipe Organ voices may be fully registered in traditional fashion via the Drawbar controls.

Compact & Portable

'The XK-1c's diminutive size is shocking when compared to its massive tone, but one touch of the traditional waterfall keyboard tells the truth that the XK-1c is the real deal, not a clone or imitation, but a genuine Hammond Organ, worthy of the name and the legacy of nearly 80 years.'
