XK System Series

HERITAGE SERIES OVERVIEW

The single manual XK-5 forms the basis of our new Heritage Series, letting you configure as large or as small a system as your gig requires.

For adding flawless and inspiring Hammond organ sound to your existing multi-keyboard rig, simply purchase the XK-5 single-manual unit. It contains all the tone-generating “brains” in case you want to expand later. From here, two systems offer a choice between contemporary or traditional looks for players who require dual manuals and/or pedals.

XK-5 Pro System
This system is best for touring musicians who carry their own gear but require a full portable B-3.

The new XLK-5 lower manual uses the same key-bed and multi-contact system. It features the same high-quality cabinetry as the main unit, with vertically extended side panels designed to cradle your XK-5. Remove the existing side panels from the main unit (a quick and simple operation), slide it into place, and you have an integrated dual-manual rig with a seamless appearance.

Jazz players who kick bass can add the XPK-250 two-octave radiating pedalboard, which includes our new EXP-250 expression pedal. Though the XK-5 is compatible with previous XK-3 and XK-3C Pro System expansion products such as the XLK-3 lower manual (though you’ll only get the multiple key contacts on the XK-5 itself), all the new components interconnect via H-BUS, our new connector that simplifies setup by carrying both data and power.

Rounding out the options are the open-footprint aluminum Pro stand, which folds for easy carry, and matching bench.

Model A-3™
So named because it looks very much like Laurens Hammond’s first organ, the Model A™ he introduced in 1935, the Model A-3 is ideal for installation in a church or nightclub, or for any application where the appearance of a classic B-series Hammond is desired.

It begins with the XK5 and adds the A-3 lower manual, which functions exactly like the XLK-5 but has thicker side panels. The wooden “B-3 look” stand and bench match the cabinetry perfectly, as does the XPK-250 pedalboard with expression pedal.

HAMMOND will offer different bundles of these components through better retailers everywhere.

If you demand no less than perfection from your tone-wheel organ sound, a feel and responsiveness that will make you close your eyes and imagine you’re playing a vintage B-3, and programmability that will let you recreate any specific Hammond that may be in your mind’s ear, don’t settle for a “clone.” Insist on The New Original … the HAMMOND XK-5.

Model A-3 Heritage System

Model A-3 Heritage System

Model A-3 Heritage System The A-3 Heritage System does for appearance what the innards of the XK-5 do for sound. If there is a photo, a description isn’t really necessary. It’s a B-3. Actually, closer in size to the 1934 Model A (hence the title), which means it’s just a tad smaller than the B, […]
