This is the organ for the serious Hammond player.
The XK5 is perfectly at home either in the studio or on stage. Termed ‘The New Original’, XK5 provides all the key features and sounds that are found on many of the ‘classic’ Hammonds.
Two full sets of drawbars per manual, realistic digital Vibrato/Chorus generator, digital Leslie rotating speaker and great harmonic percussion all work together to provide the musical tools necessary to create your own Hammond sound.
The waterfall keyboard has multi-contacts to recreate the tactile feel of the classic Hammonds which add to the player’s Hammond experience.
Completely new Hammond sound generation technology brings truly authentic tones for those who demand the best in a portable instrument.
The XK5 comes complete with presets that provide registrations to suit Jazz, Rock and Popular playing styles. These presets can easily be replaced with your own customised sounds.
Parameters such as drawbar type, digital Leslie speed and characteristics, reverb types and lengths and variable key click are just some of the options that can be altered to suit the player using Hammond’s well designed menu structure.
XK5 has the iconic wooden cabinet look for the traditional Hammond appearance and style. When combined with the XLK5 lower manual and the optional turned wooden stand, your XK5 system completes that ‘signature instrument profile’ which is recognised the world over.
Newly designed real tube pre-amp and new digital Leslie propel the instrument to new levels of playing. A rich, warm tube over-drive can be added using a variable control – and you can even select the type of tube you’d like to use.
Hammond has gone all out to inject many little nuances of the iconic Hammond sound into this new organ.
Moving and maintaining an antique Hammond will only become more difficult as time passes.
Of course we have tons of respect for anyone who does, but to get all of the sound with none of the hassle it’s easy to see why the XK-5 is destined to become The New Original™
