Get all of the sounds that helped define jazz, gospel, rock, and more in a lightweight package with the XK-3c from Hammond. Weighing only about 55lbs, the keyboard weighs about the same as any portable stage piano but comes packed to the gills with classic Hammond sound.

Digital Features, Classic Analog Sound

Hammond dropped the weight by utilizing advanced modeling techniques to move from the analog to the digital realm. Using Hammond's top of the line VASE III sound engine, the XK-3c is so convincing that even seasoned B3 players would be hard pressed to tell the difference. That means you get all the cool features you would expect from a digital keyboard, such as the ability to save and load presets, an LCD display, and MIDI input and output, without sacrificing sound.

Dual-Tube Preamp

While it's true that digital distortion has come a long way over the past fifteen years or so, lets face it; nothing beats the classic, warm, analog sound of real tube overdrive. That's why the Hammond XK-3c also incorporates a dual vacuum tube preamp using 12AX7 and 12AU7 tubes. They can be used gently to add a warm, round color to the sound, or they can be overdriven to produce that classic Hammond growl.

Analog Keys, Digital Features

Of course, there's more to any keyboard than just the sound, and Hammond clearly knows this. That's why the XK-3c comes with 73 velocity-sensitive, vintage waterfall-style keys, 12 of which have the classic reverse pattern for loading presets on the fly. It also includes a walnut-finished cabinet and classic Hammond drawbars to complete the vintage look.

Whatever your genre, wherever your venue, the Hammond XK-3c has the sound, playability and portability you need.
