Get the legendary sound of the B-3 in a more modern setup, plus a stand and bench too.
This excellent instrument and accessory package includes the Hammond XK-3c Drawbar Organ for classic Hammond B-3 sounds, an On-Stage Deluxe Keyboard X stand, plus a comfortable Musician's Gear AKT-66 Standard Keyboard Bench. The keyboard was given a "Key Buy" rating in the July 2008 issue of Keyboard magazine, drawing accolades for it's "perfectly authentic drawbar tones...outstanding Leslie simulation" and for being "...the most sophisticated Tube PreAmp in a keyboard...entirely true to the B-3." The magazine even said the Hammond organ was "comfortably ahead of any clonewheel we've tested so far."
Hammond XK-3C Drawbar Organ
The Hammond Organ follows in the footsteps of the award-winning Hammond XK-3, known around the world as the new B-3. It offers you the classic tone-wheel sound by utilizing 96-digital tone wheels. This Vase III sound generator makes it possible to reproduce all of the characteristics of the vintage Hammond B-3, a staple of jazz and rock, from artists like Jimmy Smith to Styx, Procol Harum, Boston, and Pink Floyd. Additionally, the Hammond XK-3 houses two internal vacuum tubes that will change continuously from pre-amp mode to overdrive mode via control knob. The Hammond XK-3 organ also includes 12 reverse color key presets, 3 sets of drawbars, a 2-rotor digital Leslie, and a 6-position rotary VIBRATO/CHORUS KNOB—all the features you would expect to find on a Hammond Vintage B-3.

Comments about Hammond XK-3C Package:
This is my 3rd Hammond organ purchase. I started playing an M3 spinnet when I was 16 yrs. old. As an adult, bought an A-100, then a Porta B to use on the road. I also bought a new Roland VK-77 in 2002. It's in a house I own in another state. I bought the XK-3c to replace the Porta B as I'm used to a full size organ. I'm really impressed with the XK-3c. It's everything that an organist needs. Hammond really nailed the Leslie sim. Haven't heard anything that can match it. I highly recommend this organ. It has a split keyboard, so it can be played as a 2-manual with limitations regarding the number of keys available. Buy it, you'll like it!
