When paired with the spinning Leslie® speaker, the HAMMOND’s sonic versatility defined the electrified keyboard sound of genres from rock to soul to Gospel to jazz. This sound is as sought after today as ever. With the XK-5 and Heritage Series, HAMMOND is proud to announce that we’ve closed the final millimeters of the realism gap—in terms of both sound and feel—in a form factor that’s far more portable and affordable than a vintage Hammond organ. We are very proud of this instrument for providing an absolutely authentic playing experience that will meet the demands of even the most seasoned B-3 purist. Frankly, we feel it has no peer among today’s keyboard offerings. “It’s very important to feel comfortable sitting at the organ. Sometimes I play an organ and it doesn’t feel like what I’m used to. First of all, [The XK-5] feels like a B-3, just sitting at it.” – Dr. Lonnie Smith, legendary jazz organist “It’s a Hammond B3! That’s what most of us want in essence. But to be able to go beyond that and have all these incredible adjustments ... I’m in love!” – Chuck Leavell (The Rolling Stones) Let’s face it: Moving and maintaining an antique Hammond will only become more difficult as time passes. Of course we have tons of respect for anyone who does, but to get all of the sound with none of the hassle, let’s learn why the XK-5 is destined to become The New OriginalTM . NEW PATENT-PENDING TECHNOLOGIES The engineering team we’ve dedicated to the Hammond sound for over 30 years went back to the drawing board for nearly everything about the new XK-5, analyzing many classic organs and poring over original diagrams and blueprints that only we possess. Here are some of the biggest new ideas in the new Hammond XK-5. 2|Page Hybrid Multiple Key Contact System: On classic Hammonds (and in our current, full-sized New B-3 Mk. II family), pressing a key closes nine mechanical contacts: one for each drawbar. Your ears usually hear the multiple harmonics as one note. Depress a key slowly, however, and you can hear the harmonics come in at slightly different times. Normal playing created a subtle “slop” between otherwise crisp attacks, and the more drawbars you pull out, the more of an almost subliminal but chewy and soulful character it impacts to the sound. One perhaps feels this more than hears it, but seasoned players certainly notice its absence. You can’t accomplish this with a single MIDI note-on, which is what most of today’s organ and synth key actions use. In the XK-5, we use three mechanical contacts at different points in the keys’ travel. Each of these in turn triggers three virtual contacts, giving you separate “note on” connections for every drawbar frequency in the same manner as the original nine-contact electro-mechanical Hammond® organs. The result is a fingers-to-music connection that perfectly duplicates sitting at a vintage B while saving on weight and cost. Plus, the time-spread between these “note ons” is programmable, as is the order in which you hear the harmonics speak. And since the contacts all receive and transmit MIDI note data, you can capture every harmonic nuance of your performance in your DAW program of choice—to which you can directly connect the XK-5 via USB. “The first thing that struck me was the action. I played a big Larry Young chord, and stretching and hitting that top note, it didn’t quite trigger all the way until I really pressed on it. That’s exactly what a B-3 does and what I expect as a B-3 player.” – Jim Alfredson (Organissimo, Janiva Magness) (Jim – jamming on the XK5 – ModelA3) Completely Redesigned Key-bed: The XK-5’s keyboard action is built in-house, not sourced from a third-party manufacturer. We designed it to duplicate the heft, bounce, and key dip of a “new old stock” and well-maintained B-3TM: No springy synth keys allowed! Master Hammond players who tested early prototypes confirmed that nothing comes closer to the feel and response they expect. Of course it has the “waterfall” key fronts critical to Hammond playing techniques such as palm slides. Play the XK-5 alongside any other modern organ and we’re convinced you’ll find the difference stunning. “The feel of the keyboard, it kicks back at you. It’s not dead, and it feels good. See, that’s what we’re looking for!”- Dr. Lonnie Smith “It’s like the feel of what I imagine it must have been like in 1968 when you put your hands on a brand new one. It feels great.”- Chuck Leavell 3|Page All-New Sound Engine: The XK-5 employs new proprietary technology to recreate Hammond’s storied tone wheel generator with unprecedented accuracy and flexibility. Tone wheels were spinning discs on shafts, each with its own pickup pointing at the edge. The pattern of “teeth” cut into the edge of the wheel and its rotational speed determined the pitch. Modeling and sampling are combined in an exclusive process to capture the frequencies of all 91 tone wheels found in the original organs, not to mention other important sonic details such as key click, harmonic percussion, vibrato-chorus, and more. Tone wheel generators have become like rare violins or classic cars: Even though Hammond originally calibrated all instruments that left the factory to sound identical, no two are exactly alike after decades of use. So we’ve extended the programmability of both the overall generator characteristics (such as leakage and cross-talk between pickups) and individual tone wheel behavior (such as the purity of the sine wave) to almost ludicrous depths. In addition to letting you perfectly duplicate different conditions of Hammonds—from showroom-new to road-abused if that’s what you’re going for—there’s the ability to recreate individual organs right down to the model, year, and serial number! Presets will capture the exact tonal qualities of famous artists’ instruments, from jazz great Dr. Lonnie Smith to Chuck Leavell (The Rolling Stones) to Gregg Rolie (Santana, Journey) and more. Virtual Matching Transformer: An often overlooked subtlety of the Hammond sound was that the tone wheels generated tiny voltages that needed to be stepped up, and you could be “drawing on” some of the same wheels at the same time by playing similar notes with similar drawbar settings on both manuals. All signals from the upper, lower, and pedal manuals passed through a matching transformer that was intended to even things out before the signal moved on to the preamp and vibrato-chorus scanner. The transformer—a piece of iron with a coil wrapped around it—could “remember” some of its saturation based on how hard it had been working previously, thus affecting new notes played. Physicists call this hysteresis. Musically speaking, it affects how much “volume robbing” you hear and adds to what Hammond aficionados think of as the “breathing” quality of the organ. (The phenomenon is similar to why some recording engineers like transformer-equipped microphones and/or preamps for certain sounds.) In the XK-5, the matching transformer and its place in the signal chain is modeled precisely, and the saturation and hysteresis amounts are adjustable from barely-there to over-the-top. Like we said, we’re closing the final few millimeters of the realism gap. MORE FEATURES We didn’t stop there. Just a few of the XK-5’s more than 50 innovations and features include: • Four full sets of Harmonic Drawbars plus pedal drawbars, just like on original Hammond console organs including the B-3. • 12 additional virtual tone wheels are devoted to harmonically complex pedal tones (i.e. more than just 16' and 8' sine waves), as found on Hammonds beginning in 1945. • Custom tone wheel profiles available via download. • Our best-ever Digital Leslie effect. Anything else is just a “rotary simulator.” • Continuously variable Digital Leslie speed if desired. 4|Page • Dedicated octave shift / transpose buttons. • Improved DSP-based overdrive complemented by vacuum tube preamp. • Improved vibrato-chorus. • Dedicated on/off buttons and amount knobs for reverb, overdrive, and assignable multi-FX. • Lower B drawbars can alternately control 9 MIDI CC messages for external gear. • Left and right 1⁄4'' outs can be used at the same time as Leslie output, for running the XK-5 through a real Leslie in parallel to stationary speakers, a subwoofer, or house P.A. • More key-triggering modes for pedal-to-lower coupler (Manual Bass function). • Firmware updatable via USB flash drive or directly from computer. • Crisp new OLED display is more readable under different lighting conditions. Of course we’ve retained the things that made working with the XK-3C and our compact SK-series keyboards a joy. Hold any button and the first page of parameters most relevant to it comes up in the display—holding the Leslie speed button for Digital Leslie settings, for example. This saves you a ton of menu-diving when customizing your sounds. New patch-naming and copying features also make your housekeeping even easier. HERITAGE SERIES OVERVIEW The single manual XK-5 forms the basis of our new Heritage Series, letting you configure as large or as small a system as your gig requires. For adding flawless and inspiring Hammond organ sound to your existing multi-keyboard rig, simply purchase the XK-5 single-manual unit. It contains all the tone-generating “brains” in case you want to expand later. From here, two systems offer a choice between contemporary or traditional looks for players who require dual manuals and/or pedals. XK-5 Pro System This system is best for touring musicians who carry their own gear but require a full portable B-3. The new XLK-5 lower manual uses the same key-bed and multi-contact system. It features the same high-quality cabinetry as the main unit, with vertically extended side panels designed to cradle your XK-5. Remove the existing side panels from the main unit (a quick and simple operation), slide it into place, and you have an integrated dual-manual rig with a seamless appearance. Jazz players who kick bass can add the XPK-250 two-octave radiating pedalboard, which includes our new EXP-250 expression pedal. Though the XK-5 is compatible with previous XK-3 and XK-3C Pro System expansion products such as the XLK-3 lower manual (though you’ll only get the multiple key contacts on the XK-5 itself), all the new components interconnect via H-BUS, our new connector that simplifies setup by carrying both data and power. Rounding out the options are the open-footprint aluminum Pro stand, which folds for easy carry, and matching bench. 5|Page Model A-3TM So named because it looks very much like Laurens Hammond’s first organ, the Model ATM he introduced in 1935, the Model A-3 is ideal for installation in a church or nightclub, or for any application where the appearance of a classic B-series Hammond is desired. It begins with the XK5 and adds the A-3 lower manual, which functions exactly like the XLK-5 but has thicker side panels. The wooden “B-3 look” stand and bench match the cabinetry perfectly, as does the XPK-250 pedalboard with expression pedal. HAMMOND will offer different bundles of these components through better retailers everywhere. If you demand no less than perfection from your tone-wheel organ sound, a feel and responsiveness that will make you close your eyes and imagine you’re playing a vintage B-3, and programmability that will let you recreate any specific Hammond that may be in your mind’s ear, don’t settle for a “clone.” Insist on The New Original ... the HAMMOND XK-5. “I’m so glad Hammond is carrying on the tradition, and making it even better than it was in the beginning. Congratulations!” – Chuck Leavell SPECIFICATIONS: Hammond USA 743 Annoreno Drive Addison, IL 60101 www.hammondorganco.com 6|Page Manuals Upper and Lower 73 notes each (61 playing keys plus 12 Preset Keys) Square-front (“waterfall”-style) New mechanical key-bed design Pedal (optional) 13, 20-note spinet-style 25-note radiating Adjustable Pedal Sustain Pedal to Lower coupler Custom Pedal Registrations (3 Factory, 3 User) Split SPLIT panel control Assignable split point Tone Generator MTWTM (Modeled Tone Wheels) 61-note polyphony for Manuals 5-note polyphony for Pedals Virtual Multi-ContactsTM Custom Contacts (3 Factory, 3 User) 3 Physical Contacts, 9 Assignable Virtual Contacts Adjustable Attack, Release, Decay Harmonic Drawbars® 5 sets (4 Manuals, 1 Pedal) Upper 2 X 9 pitches Lower 2 X 9 pitches Pedal 2 pitches Drawbar Voicing 4 choices for Manuals (A-100, B-3, C-3, Mellow) 4 choices for Pedals (Normal, Muted, Synth 1 & 2) Custom Tone Wheel (CTWTM) 3 Factory, 3 User for A-100, B-3, C- 3 & Mellow Drawbar Voicings CTW’s identified by model and serial number Adjustable parameters for each tone wheel 12 complex tone wheels for bottom 12 pedal tones.

Carr, who was shot and paralyzed years ago, told his story to Oakland police Sgt. Clay Burch (standing behind Sullenberger) who arranged for the Oakland Firefighters Random Acts charity to fund Carr’s flight education. (Kristopher Skinner/Bay Area News Group) " By George Kelly | email@example.com PUBLISHED: November 7, 2016 at 5:13 pm "OAKLAND — “Whoa, whoa, oh my God!” Quincey Carr cried out as he wheeled around full circle in his wheelchair as media and well-wishers quickly surrounded him at the corner of Hegenberger Road and Edgewater Drive near his job. Only minutes before, an Oakland fire engine had pulled up to treat Carr in an attempt to distract him. “They surprised me, they had the fire truck show up here and test my pulse and said ‘Are you OK?'” he said. “Then people just started swarming in, and I was like, ‘What is happening?'” Carr, 32, of Hayward, was immediately surrounded by cameras and city leaders, including Mayor Libby Schaaf, and Capt. Chesley “Sully” Sullenberger, who presented him with a $10,000 scholarship check on behalf of Oakland Firefighters Random Acts to cover the cost of flight instruction classes. “I’m just so happy that I can really devote all of the time in doing what I really want to do,” said Carr, who wields a bullhorn and signs six days a week to promote Ramos Furniture, a family-owned and operated chain of Northern California stores. He came by his love of flight early with visits to his parents’ jobs at the Alameda Naval Air Station leading to model-plane collections, flight lessons and his own private pilot’s license at age 17 in 2002. But tragedy struck on Aug. 11, 2006, when Carr, who learned he had passed his written exam for a commercial license, went out with his girlfriend to begin celebrations with a haircut at his regular barbershop on International Boulevard. When his girlfriend rebuffed a stranger’s flirting, the man left the shop but returned soon after with a gun and shot Carr three times, then fired two more shots into him on the floor. Carr’s dreams were on hold. But he fought back through agonizing rehabilitation to teach ground instruction at a local flight school, take friends on occasional plane rides and play a weekly piano gig at a Union City hotel to make ends meet. Oakland police Sgt. Clay Burch said he met Carr earlier this year while visiting Ramos Furniture during a work break. It was after that chance meeting that Burch started thinking about how he could help Carr. “We’re here to hopefully start him on a path to change his life. His dream has always been to be a flight instructor. Today, we’re here to help him realize his dream,” Burch said. Larry Hendricks, a retired 30-year Oakland firefighter, said the mayor’s office contacted his nonprofit organization, Oakland Firefighters Random Acts, to help with Burch’s plan. “When we heard (Burch) had taken the time to get the backstory of a guy hundreds of people had driven by in his wheelchair, it was a no-brainer for us,” Hendricks said. At fire station No. 27 on Pardee Road, officials started talking about a scholarship that would allow Carr to train at Pacific States Aviation, a flight-based operator in Concord. “I’ve known Quincey for more than 15 years,” Rashid Yahya, Pacific States vice president and chief pilot, said. “He still flies out of our academy using a special apparatus. I’m really glad we can help Quincey with his passion for flying and teaching. Once he gets his certificate, he can teach any student from private to commercial how to fly.” Sullenberger praised Random Acts and all others who helped raise funds for Carr’s equipment and training. “When I became a flight instructor when I was 20 years old, I very quickly realized it’s one thing to be able to accomplish something, to achieve a certain level of performance, but it’s quite another to, in very granular fashion, break that down into component parts and explain it to someone so they can begin to do it,” said Sullenberger, who lavished praise on Carr’s determination and perseverance in pursuing his flight instruction dreams. “I’m going to tell him today that forever after when I see a small plane overhead, I’m going to say ‘I wonder if that’s Quincey?'” Staff writer Angela Hill contributed to this report.
