Band / Affiliation: Kids These Days
“The Hammond SK-1 has expanded my keyboard presence on stage far beyond any other keyboard I’ve ever used. Its versatility and portability make it a professional touring musician’s best friend. Of all of the Hammond stage models, the manual bass on the SK-1 is the best yet. What makes this keyboard truly great are the classic Hammond organ sounds, the Rhodes, Wurlitzer, Clavinova, and synth patches that rival any other stage keyboard available today. I will definitely be using the Hammond SK-1 for all of my upcoming tours and appearances.”
