XK-3 = current king of single manual Hammond clones. Has 2 sets of drawbars and extra octave for reverse color preset keys. Extremely adjustable and customizable sound parameters.

 

XK-1 = less expensive version of XK-3, has 1 set of drawbars, less customizable parameters, no extra octave of preset keys, slightly better leslie sim, and some extra sounds of other keyboards that are forgettable.

 

XK-2 = previous generation of Hammond clones, not as good as current generation. Leslie sim is noticeably worse, chorus vib is too.

Hi there,

 

Simple:

 

XK1 - current 'no frills' Hammond clonewheel based on VASE III sound engine like the XK3. Superior leslie effect over XK3 and additional non-organ sounds (not so great). I have one and can vouch for the fact that it rocks!

 

XK2 - previous flagship Hammond clonewheel based on VASE II technology.

 

XK3 - current flagship Hammond clonewheel based on VASE III sound engine. 'Real' tube pre-amp and dual manual XK system capabilities.

 

I won't post a lengthy response here as there have already been many, try searching for XK1/2/3.

 

Merry Xmas!
