The Hammond XK-5 is the new organ from the famed brand, and is being hailed as the “New Original Hammond”.
It is more portable, affordable and reliable than its vintage counterparts, and should be able to stand up to the rigors of the life of a modern musician. With the classic sound of the Hammond B-3 more sought-after today than ever, the XK-5 sets to emulate the faithful organ with four full sets of harmonic drawbars – just like on original Hammond organs.
Also included is the “best ever” Digital Leslie effect, dedicated octave shift and transpose buttons, improved vibrato-chorus and more. It’s based off and very similar to the classic B3, but modern features like USB and MIDI capabilities mean that it isn’t rooted in the past.
