Never before has this been done. Offering you classic "tone-wheel" sound utilizing 96-Digital Tone Wheels. New VASEIII sound generator produces all vintage B3 sounds and characteristics. PLUS, Internal Vacuum Tubes allow PRE-AMP and OVERDRIVE Mode using control knob.

The XK3 is undoubtedly the most 'full on' Hammond single manual we have ever seen or heard. From turning on the power the organ delivers the most powerful and authentic sound imaginable. This is a Hammond for the most serious and demanding of players, and without a doubt it is the real deal.

This instrument is definitely the way forward for anyone who needs authentic B3 sound and feel. At just over 19 kilos, XK3 represents the ultimate compromise for the touring musician. Improved digital Leslie means your completely self contained and can just set up and play. Coupled with a Leslie 21 system it is the definitive Hammond setup.

•Tone-Wheels

The new XK-3 contains (96) independent oscillating digital tonewheels for accurate reproduction of the B3 sound. Importantly, this keyboard has full polyphony.

• Vacuum Tube preamplifier

The XK-3 is equipped with a vacuum tube preamplifier for warmth and rich overdrive. The overdrive circuit consists of two bands. Thus even if the sound is overdriven, you can still obtain purer harmonics.

Custom Tonewheel (and transistor) templates:

• B-Type


  • Real B3

    This template is the classic B3 model. When purchasing a B3 you would maybe try three or four to find the best one of the bunch (they were all slightrly different from new- some great, some good, and some not so good)...well this is the best of the B3's
  • 80s Clean

    The 80s gave us sampling technology, and with it the 'clinically clean' 'Organ sound'. Basically take a Hammond B3, record it digitally, get rid of all of the grunge, noise and imperfections picked up in the sampled sound...hey presto... 1980s Hammond.
  • Noisy

    Take an A100 and stick a couple of micrphones in front of the speakers..all that noise!, motor hum, leakeage..etc..etc. This is the sound most Hammond Clones try and replicate.

• Mellow


  • Full Flats

    Tonewheel generators are somewhat random, take out that 'randomness' and give each tonewheel a mathematical formula and this is the result. (Somewhat like a late 70s/early 80 Hammond Console/Spinet. e.g Concorde, Elegante, Aurora Classic.
  • Husky

    Dropped Middle Ranges- accenting the high and low frequencies
  • Flute Lead

    opposite to Husky- Bass and treble dropped.

• Brite


  • Classic X5

    Infamous Hammond X5- dull triangle waveforms and flat output levels on every frequency.
  • Vox Full

    Very Brite- the manual says "suitable for surfin' music", amusing...but try it and you will soon realise Hammond dont mean surfin' the net.
  • Cheap Transistor ..or cheesy organ (italics ours)
    The manual says 'junk transistor organ, it contains insufficient bass and treble'. What they mean is nasty..but incredibly cool late 60s/early 70s combo organ.."you beautiful stranger, light my fire before the sun rises over that house."
