I sent info on the Hammond SK1/2 to Chas via PM several days ago, thinking it might not be applicable for an arranger forum, but now that I've thought about it, it sure would be a great rig with the Roland BK-7m module.

Good find, Donny.

Of course, Roland (Atelier) has their own dual manual "portable" organ with styles.

Just create your Mp3 custom made backing tracks with your arranger KB...put them on a Thumb Drive, stick it in the Sk1 & off ya go. The sound is awesome, the price is right, I think Hammond has a winner here.

I think the biggest drawback (pun intended) for the SK2, and something that would concern Hammond players, is that it only has one set of drawbars.

It's a great instrument if that doesn't concern you, but several Hammond players I talked with thought that was an oversight.

Notice the Atelier above has the requisite two sets of drawbars.

I'm sure the Atelier's weight will put off more than a few solo players, especially considering that a road case will add another bit of poundage as well.

After listening to the demos, I like the sound of the Hammond better, but then, the Atelier is an arranger where the SK2 is not.

Makes me glad I bought me a Tyros4...great organ sounds, light weight and awesome styles.
