Hammond SK1-88 88-Key Professional Digital Keyboard/Organ #7104qn

Hammond SK1-88 88-Key Professional Digital Keyboard/OrganThe dilemma in designing a keyboard with both faithful and accurate Hammond Organ and Grand Piano voices lies in the keyboard itself. It seems destined for compromise-should it be organ-like, or weighted? Hammond has the answer in the unique keyboard 88-note Fatar keyboard on the Sk1-88, which is light enough for an organist’s comfort, yet has the “heft” to satisfy any piano player. The Sk1-88 also automatically adjusts the “depth” of key contact making all playing comfortable. The keys are also shaped to allow traditional Hammond “moves” like sweep and glissando. Now the pianist who always wanted to play Hammond can do so in comfort, and vice-versa for the organist.Digital Tonewheel GeneratorLaurens Hammond’s original organ (invented in 1935) had an intricate electro-mechanical mechanism that used 96 quarter-sized wheels spinning on driveshafts powered by his patented synchronous motor. The wheels were notched according to pitch, and an electromagnetic pickup (much like that on an electric guitar) sensed those notches and rendered a musical note. The drawbars combined those harmonic tones to produce the inimitable Hammond organ sound.Hammond’s adherence to quality has allowed many vintage instruments to remain vital today, and are among the most desired and imitated musical instruments ever, but at a high cost. The Electromechanical Hammonds require expensive maintenance, regular doses of oil, and were of great weight; not easy to move at all.The Sk Series’ VASE III “Engine” uses the exact model of Laurens Hammond’s design, executing it in the digital realm, with no moving parts, retaining all of the nuances, imperfections and idiosyncrasies of the original. The wheels are always “spinning”. When a note is played, the tones pass, just as water through a faucet. The random starts of each wave played allow for phase interaction, producing the rich tone so prized in the vintage Hammonds.The digital realization of Laurens Hammond’s System allows sophisticated control of every facet. Each digital tonewheel can be voiced for Volume, Timbre, Motor Noise and Leakage; enabling the musician to tailor the Modern Hammond to match the characteristics of any vintage Hammond, or to create their own vision. Twelve Macro Profiles allow the user to quickly select the most popular “kinds” of Hammond, from showroom-new to road-worn antique and all points between.Classic Hammond ComponentsThe Tonewheel Generator wasn’t the only great invention of Laurens Hammond, and no Hammond organ would be complete without the full spectrum of ingredients that comprised Mr. Hammond’s genius design.DrawbarsMr. Hammond used the Pipe Organ Design concept of “unification” in creating the iconic drawbars of his electronic organ. This concept allowed one or more keyboards to control the pitches of many pipes within one set or “rank” of pipes. Adopting the harmonic standards and nomenclature of the pipe organ, Mr. Hammond’s design assured that any organist would be able to play his inst
