Here is a Flash Video of me having a in home private Jam session on the theme from ROCKY... It is a little long but it can give you idea how versatile this Keyboard really is.. The sound is from the self contained internal speakers and the internal mic of the camera no studio effects or direct recording. The sound is far better live!

There is nothing.. nothing like playing a Hammond Drawbar Organ. In the old days you used to have to stack a Clavinet, Drum Box, Piano Keyboard, Mini Moog all on top of each other.. to get less of a sound that you can get out of this little keyboard. I remember the days when you needed two roadies, a van and a room bigger than your spare bedroom just to fit all the junk you needed to get the sounds this little organ gets.

I asked my rep to let me know whenever there is one available of these available. Well.. a company had to go bankrupt for me to get this one.. Someone's loss your gain!

Hammond stopped making this little organ because of financial considerations not because it was not a good organ. Like all companies they had to make some cut backs in this economy. The XE-200 (two keyboard version) retails for about $12,995 this organ retailed for about $7,000. At those prices no wonder they were hard to sell. But I purchased these last remaining XE-1's from Hammond on a repo special. I believe there is nothing like it on the market and with the economy the way it is.. there may never be again! We have one XE-1 and another in Cherry Cabinet the CMOS-103. Please add $200 for the cherry cabinet. Buy it now $4095.00

Buy it now while you can. The last time I had a request for one of these it took me a month to find one. Also recently I sold one of these to a fellow who told me he was seriously thinking of having one shipped in from England and it would have cost him approximately $2000 shipping. Don't miss out on this one.

I have one client who uses the XE-1 out on gigs every weekend. Just a Duo and they are booked every week! People always ask.. WHAT IS THAT.. meaning his keyboard. He often comes in and thanks me for selling him the rig..

If you play or ever played a Hammond nothing will ever satisfy you like a drawbar Organ. Why buy a wanna be.. Get a drawbar organ with the name Hammond on it. Also don't settle for slider emulations. Thats like buying a trumpet that you have that uses a compressor for the air.. The drawbars are what gives a Hammond organ it's versatility and breath.. Working the drawbars is part of what it is to play a Hammond. I believe that this little organ for its size is far better than anything else ever made. Someone always is coming up with great orchestra voices.. and pianos etc.. but if you love the Hammond sound this is the keyboard for you.

This organ comes with three sets of drawbars one for Great, Swell and Pedals.. just like the $23,000 Elegante but better.. The sound engine is more like the new XK3-C or new B-3. This was Hammond's Modular approach to organs... You can make this a two manual console just like the XK-3C system by adding another keyboard and assigning it to another Midi channel. Also you can add pedals like I did in the video demo.

Not included in this auction is the XPK-100 Pedals which are extra. Most places sell them for $885.00. If you win the bid on this organ we will beat any price you see on the net. Also not included in the auction is the EXP 100F expression Pedal . Most places sell this accessary for $212.00 again we have lowest price on this as well... Also the Winning bidder will get a super discount on both of these accessaries, just email me for a quote.

This organ has a 16 track sequencer, a compact flash storage drive, along with floppy disk storage. It has a touch sensitive keyboard. It has 100 programmable presets, it has programmable rhythm styles, I lost track of how many orchestra voices... plus a stereo Leslie simulator that will blow you away. For the purest...it also has an external outlet for a Leslie. A simple kit will allow this organ to hook up to any vintage leslie 122, 0r 145-147.

If you are an old B-3 player and have been dreaming of having something to play at the house but can't afford a new B-3 or maybe can't fit one in the apartment or house... get this organ. A B-3 is great if you are playing with a trio or want to use it in a recording studio... but you will never have as much fun with a B-3 that you would have with this little instrument. Don't wait to bid, I currently have these units on sale at our Mall store. I reserve the right to close the auction early if it is sold locally.

SHIPPING AND PAYMENT:  Buyer is solely responsible to pay the shipping fee of this unit. We can personally deliver this organ to most parts of the Eastern USA through our own delivery services or we can arrange long distance carriers to deliver the organ

DRB Vase-II sound Generator

Any instrument that carries the Hammond? name must have top of the range drawbar-sound. That is why the XE-1 is equipped with the well established DRB Vase-II Digital Technology Sound engine, which has been praised by professionals and the most ardent Hammond traditionalists. In this latest version, the sound generation system also provides an extensive range of solo and ensemble instrument voices plus rhythm and special effect options.

Harmonic Drawbars

Hammonds own drawbar control system is widely acclaimed by professional players for being the original and best. To achieve all of those special Hammond combinations and effects it is this system that outperforms all others. The XE-1 boasts two full sets of nine drawbars and two bass drawbars, all of which perform at real-time without any response-time delay. The system has a selectable choice of tonal nuances such as the B3 with its characteristic generator crosstalk, Bright or Mellow plus features such as foldback-control on the upper and lower octaves, variable attack, adjustable overdrive and the all important "key click" simulation.


The XE-1 technology faithfully recreates the traditional Hammond vibrato and chorus generator effects in the recognized six degrees. It also provides the very latest in advanced Digital Leslie simulation. This very important effect for a complete Hammond experience is fully adjustable to suit player preference. The simulated upper horn and bass rotor "Rise" (speed up) and "Fall" (slow down ) times can be independently adjusted. The "Brake" ( stopping) time can also be changed. Volume balances between the horn and bass rotor can by customized and even a simulated mike set-up can be varied for angle and distance. When an external 11-pin Leslie is connected to the XE-1, the on-board simulator is automatically disconnected.


Hammond believes that also a single-manual instrument must have a high-quality keyboard. For the XE-1, Hammond has opted for their superb "leaf spring" keybed, found on all top quality models since 1965. This distinctive "off white" exclusive keyboard provides warmth and smoothness to the touch but also speed and toughness to satisfy all playing styles.

High Quality Instrumental Voicing

In addition to the extensive variations of traditional Hammond sounds, the XE-1 introduces 275 sampled instrument voices available in three combinable polyphonic sections. Hammond has introduced some newly sampled voices on the XE-1 including a rich stereo grand piano, a sleazy, breathy tenor sax, a haunting flute, some wonderful acoustic guitars and a selection of accordions presenting a range of reed permutations. For the bass section 21 specific voices are available and for sound effect 16 different settings (Chorus, Flanger, various Reverb-types...) are possible. User voice sections are also provided in which you can create and store your very own edited versions.


With such an array of sounds and effects available it is important to be able to select and recall your favorite registrations quickly and easily. The XE-1 has ten banks of ten user programmable set-ups each one containing information effecting the right hand, left hand, bass, MIDI, reverb, Leslie, style and rhythm settings. A complete one hundred set-ups readily available. A different set of 100 registrations can be loaded via floppy disc or via the special Compact Flash Memory Card.

Auto Accompaniment Styles and rhythm

The auto-vari rhythm and auto-band orchestra sections combine to provide Hammond's completely redesigned rhythmic accompaniment section. 100 new rhythm patterns each with four variations which can be programmed to change automatically, work together with three accompaniment variations to create 1200 automatic backing patterns. The accompaniment operates in 3 different modes : Single, Fingered Mode and Pianist. For the not so accomplished player there is a one finger easy-play system. By utilizing the Rhythm Preset function each rhythm will automatically select a suitable instrumental registration to compliment the chosen pattern. Two rhythm fills, an intro and ending pattern are also provided as well as Hammond's exclusive touch tempo which allows you to set your own rhythm speed by simply tapping the touch tempo button. This can be done at the start or even during a rhythm sequence. Additional styles can be loaded via floppy disc or via the special Compact Flash Memory Card.


A built-in style-converter allows the use of rhythm-styles produced for other instruments. This allows you to utilize previously purchased style libraries on your XE-1 (Not all formats may not be compatible).

Pro Chord

Pro chord automatically generates full right hand harmony on single note play. This way it is real easy to make your playing sound like a true professional. This advanced Hammond feature uses multiple separate voices to create rich harmonies. Up to 20 different settings, from jazz combos through theatre organ tibias, to Hollywood style string orchestras and big band sections are available.

Ease of use

Hammond has provided its distinctive graphic LCD information screen for the XE1. This new display allows instant visual access to all the voicing and control sections. A short-cut feature eliminates any time consuming effort paging through menu screens. Simply press and hold a control panel button, and all information regarding that section will be automatically displayed. You don?don't have to be a computer whizz to operate this instrument.


Coupled to Hammond's philosophy of ease of use the on-board sequencer is just that. Simple controls allow for a virtual recording studio at your finger tips, enabling you to create your very own multi-tracked performances.

Data Storage

Ever wonder how you would store your style data, sequencer data, preset registration data, etc. without hooking up any external equipment and not running out of space ? The answer is a Compact Flash slot. You can save all your precious data on a Compact Flash Memory Card ( 256MB Compact Flash Cards can be used as a storage medium on your XE-1).

Built-in amplification with S.E.S. and power speaker-system

Having a great sound engine and a vast array of voicing is only as good as the amplification system through which it is played. For the XE-1, Hammond has developed a special high-performance stereo amplifier that will generate a solid 2 x 50W output. Couple this to a brand new patented heavy duty bass reflex speaker system with a double 13cm woofer and you will experience an unbelievable sound for such a compact instrument. To widen the stereo image even further Hammond has added its exclusive S.E.S. (Sound Expansion System). This function provides the player with a much broader sound sensation through an expanded stereo image simulation.


Other than the traditional MIDI-functions (IN, OUT, THROUGH, saving data to a MIDI data recorder via MIDI Data Dump), the XE-1 also operates in pre-defined MIDI-environments. This means that when you add an additional keyboard such as XLK-1 to your set-up, there is no need to reconfigure all MIDI-settings. Simply switch your environment from "single manual mode" to "dual manual mode" and you're all set...


Since your instrument is equipped with internal flash-rom memory, you can upgrade the system-software via the disk drive when an important new version becomes available.

Factory Equipped for Direct Leslie Plug-in

The XE-1 is designed to accept direct plug-in of any 11-pin external Leslie. The volume of the in-built Leslie pre-amplifier can be regulated to match different types of Leslie, which can be very useful on stage. Leslie motor speed-switching can be controlled via the keyboard selector, an optional foot switch or through MIDI.

Modular for your future needs

You may start out by using the XE-1 as a stand-alone single-manual or you may decide to progress to multi-manual control by connecting the optional XLK-1 MIDI keyboard which will transform your instrument into a real organ-top. With the additional use of the optional XPK-100 MIDI Pedal board and the EXP-100F Expression pedal, you will have the maximum of control as offered by a full featured Hammond Organ.
