Band / Affiliation: U2 / Pink
“The SK2 has now become my “single keyboard”. I used to have to take two boards to cover a gig. The new voices in the SK2 exceeded my expectations. The pianos can be bright enough to cut through a rock and roll band, while the electric pianos remain fat and punchy for R&B. The extra voices cover what I need and I can’t wait to go to the internet to explore even more. Of course, the Hammond screams! But I always had to drag along something else to do those extra parts. No more. Now I pull up a patch that has exactly what I need on both manuals, sometimes extras on top, sometimes on the bottom, sometimes just two glorious Hammond voices – without a bunch of connecting cables and routing voodoo. Now I have my full keyboard arsenal in a bag on my back, I can make that grand entrance like the guitar players! WooHoo! Thanks for turning me on to the new revolution in keyboards.
“P.S. It is the perfect hotel room keyboard.”
