HAMMOND - A BRIEF HISTORY

In 1934 Laurens Hammond invented the first magnetic tone wheel electronic harmonic drawbar organ.


Henry Ford, founder of Ford Motor Company bought the first ones off the production line. Pipe organ manufacturers of the day were not happy with the threat of such a small instrument taking the place of the their big pipe organs and refused to let Hammond call his invention an organ. A public trial was set up to see if a musically knowledgeable and mixed audience could discern the difference in sound between the two instruments. The result was that of course no one could tell the difference and the court's decision was to allow Hammondís new instrument to be called an organ.

This was the beginning of the age of the modern electronic organ - the most versatile instrument ever produced.

Since then the Hammond has been the most sought after organ sound in the world.
The new Hammondís are steeped in tradition, maintaining the sound of all the yesteryear great Hammond organ sounds, combined with the awesome realism of todayís digital sound reproduction. 

Combine your new Hammond with the Leslie Tone Cabinet System for a new added dimension in sound.

See them, hear them, play them at Lowe's Pianos and Organs.
