“The SK1 has been an amazing addition to my rig on BET’s Bobby Jones Gospel! I was blown away by the growl that came from this 15 pound and very compact machine. My keyboard techs and crew in the audio truck couldn’t believe their ears on the set. Not only is it an organ, but there are other great keyboard and piano voices included. I love the Rhodes and Clav sounds that are inside that I used quite a bit this season. What you hear on TV is just a stereo output without running it through a Leslie. (The option is still there via an 8 pin connect) The SK system is a must have for your band, educational institutions or your church. Hammond Organ and SK systems is my organ of choice for TV production, recording sessions and touring. Go and get your SK series Hammond today!!!”
