Jon Hammond is playing the Pro XK System Organ

Like the XK-Traditional, The XK-Professional System allows our single manual organ models XK-3 or XK-3c to be converted to a double-manual console-style organ without any modifications to the XK-3 or XK-3c.

Winter NAMM Hammond Suzuki USA Stand Jon Hammond and Joe Berger Late Rent theme song

Jon Hammond at the organ and Joe Berger guitar aka Ham-Berger playing LATE RENT theme song for
The Jon Hammond Show cable TV show and HammondCast on KYOU Radio. Joe Berger is playing his
custom JJ guitar through the new G37 Leslie guitar speaker amp, 100 watts RMS solid state power amp
with vacuum tube preamp. The Rhodes Piano stand across the aisle is turning up their volume quite loud,
but Jon & Joe exercised restraint, because between the 100 watt G37 and 300 watts 3300W Leslie amp
coupled with Jon’s organ could easily take care of any situation, except for NAMM Sound Control (sound police)
*note: Thanks for coming by HSUSA stand right after we finished Sound Control people! Jon
The Rhodes people turned out to be real nice, it often happens that there is a battle of sound in open stands at
music trade shows folks.
We will be appearing at Frankfurt Musikmesse celebrating 25 years with our annual Musikmesse Warm Up Party in
Jazzkeller Frankfurt Tuesday April 5th at 9PM / 21UHR, join Jon Hammond and Joe Berger with Tony Lakatos tenor
sax and Giovanni Gulino drums and special friends for cake and good music onstage in the historic Jazzkeller.
Also Friday night April 8th annual Musikmesse-Session in Jazzkeller Hofheim. ©

Jon Hammond
International Hammond-Suzuki Jazz Artist JON HAMMOND recently stopped by Hammond-Suzuki USA HQ during his visit to Chicago. After a tour of the factory and offices given by Senior V.P. Dennis Capiga, Jon gave the A-405 and new Mini-B a workout in the showroom. Jon’s swinging style was just the thing to cool off a hot summer day. Scope out where Jon’s going to be

Meet The Incredible Sk1 Hammond with Michael Falkenstein and Jon Hammond

Filmed in Hammond-Showroom Karlstrasse 38
D-89129 Langenau Germany on April 19th 2011
“Meet The Incredible Sk1 Hammond with Michael Falkenstein and Jon Hammond”
First look at this exciting new keyboard product weighing in at 7 kilos, just over 15 lbs., it sounds like a real Hammond B3 organ with Leslie, or a full size grand piano, any type of famous vintage electric piano or synthesizer. This keyboard does it all and with original Hammond drawbars and it’s feather light. Sk1 has a built in USB flash drive input, the keys are ‘bullet proof’ waterfall style keys that can hold up to extreme pressure of rockin’ rock musicians, swinging jazz musicians and can even sound like a huge pipe organ. This film will blow your mind.

On the way walking home by good luck I saw an elusive Google Maps Street View car parked on W.30th St. that had driven all the way from California to New York City, notice the high-tech equipment and California plates, highly-interesting!

I hope nobody breaks in the car, often happens when equipment is left in parked cars in New York City (happened 6 times to me personally)
