Frankfurt Music Messe, 2011
The Frankfurt Music Messe was a buzz of activity, especially on the Hammond stand with John Lord from Deep Purple launching the new Hammond SK series portable keyboard series. SK stands for Stage Keyboards and they look more like a synthesizer than a traditional Hammond. The keyboards are superb and became quite a highlight of the show. Malcolm Deakin, also from England, put the SKs through their paces and showed just how creative the Japanese can be.
