The Drawbar Has Been Raised

In the authenticity sweepstakes, the Hammond XK-5 blows away the barrier between vintage and modern, redefining the state of the art in portable digital organs. Hammond's flagship portable, the XK-5, features a ground-up design that draws on original B-3 schematics, capturing that legendary sound, feel - and soul - with unerring accuracy. Onboard, new technologies include a cutting-edge sound engine that combines modeling and sampling to reproduce every nuance of vintage electro-mechanical tonewheel generators. The new custom waterfall keybed provides the inimitable feel of a vintage B-3 and is ideal for palm slides and other classic playing techniques. Other features include four sets of drawbars plus pedal drawbars, an uber-realistic Digital Leslie, and downloadable tonewheel profiles. The foundation of Hammond's new Heritage Series, the XK-5 is modular, letting you configure as large a system as your music requires.
