Obituary
Hammond organ history web site

Wikipedia page
Laurens Hammond was born 1895 in Evanston Illinois. His father was a banker, whose job afforded the Hammonds an affluent lifestyle, he died shortly after Laurens was born.
Laurens was intelligent, and loved to tinker. He attended Engineering school at Cornell, served in World War I, and returned to work various jobs. But Laurens Hammond longed to be an "independent inventor", and he got right down to work.
Today we take electric power for granted, but in the 30's, the juice that came out of the wall was often unstable. Hammond invented a motor that ran at the same speed no matter what, and it was completely noiseless. Hammond hit upon the idea applying his motor to run a clock. Because it was silent, there was no "tick-tock", and his clock was an immediate success.
The great depression of the 1930's caused the bottom to fall out of the Hammond Clock Company. Hammond tried other applications, like an automated bridge table using his motor to drive a mechanism dealing cards to each player. The table gave Hammond a slight lift financially, but it, too, soon faded.
Looking for new ideas Hammond's thoughts considered using his motor to generate sound. Although Laurens Hammond wasn't a musician, he loved to hear the organ when he went to church with his mother as a child. Why not try to build an alternative to expensive pipe organs?
There was already an effort underway by other inventors to do exactly that, but no one had succeeded. Around 1900, an inventor named Thadeus Cahill came up with the Teleharmonium. The Teleharmonium was a huge, mechanical system utilizing garbage-can sized (and larger) cylinders to generate sounds. The design called for the music made by this beast to be piped into houses by means of telephone wires. Needless to say, this system failed, but the basic working idea had merit.
Using a much, much smaller design based on the ideas of Cahill's instrument, coupled with the synchronous motor, Hammond came up with what he called an "Electric Flute". It Worked! At first he thought it would be just a toy, a plaything, selling for thirty to forty dollars, but thinking again, he saw that this could be a major advancement in musical instruments, and proceeded to sketch out the blueprints for what would become the Hammond Organ.
On April 24th, 1934 Laurens Hammond filed for a patent on his musical machine. The paper was a whopper, spanning 18 pages and twenty thousand words. At that time the country's top industrialist was automaker Henry Ford, who loved gadgets of all sorts. He got wind of Hammond's patents, and sent men to Chicago to order six organs immediately. The problem was, that Hammond's Organ hadn't even gone into production yet.
Ford summoned Hammond to Dearborn to find out if he could help get the fledgling organ company up to speed. Hammond declined Ford's generous offer of material participation. It is a common misperception that Henry Ford got the first Hammond Organ. Mr Ford placed the first Order, but he didn't get the first organ.
The reality is actually much tamer. After Laurens got the company up and running, Hammond's Serial Number One went to a dealer in Kansas City, where it was used for years as a traveling demonstrator. Upon its retirement, it went to the Smithsonian in Washington, where it now resides.
The Hammond Organ was an immediate success, and before long Churches, Theatres and Concert halls were humming to the Model "A"'s sound.
On the west side of Chicago, near the original Hammond Factory, Black Gospel Churches began to use the Hammond Organ, and a tradition was born that has never stopped growing.

In 1934 a patent Granted for the tone-wheel organ. The Organ was officially unveiled to the public at the first (and only) Industrial Arts Exposition in Radio City’s RCA building on April 15th, 1935.
The first Hammond organ was the Model A. It contained most of the features that came to be standard on all console Hammonds, including two 61-key manuals, a 25-key pedalboard, an expression pedal, 12 reverse-color preset keys, two sets of drawbars for each manual, and one for the pedals.
From serial number 2501 onwards a deeper cabinet was used (that would last with few changes to the B-3)the model was designated AB.

To address concerns that the sound of the Hammond was not rich enough to accurately mimic a pipe organ, the model BC was introduced in December 1936. It included a chorus generator, in which a second tonewheel system added slightly sharp or flat tones to the overall sound of each note. The cabinet was made deeper to accommodate this
In 1937 the FTC (Federal Trade Commission) complained that the Hammond instrument was not an organ and that it could not produce an ‘infinite' number of tone variations.
A year later after extensive hearings and an impartial panel test at the University of Chicago Chapel, the FTC ruled that Hammond had the right to call its instrument an organ. But it must stop claiming ‘an infinite number of tones’; it could only claim 253,000,000 possible combinations.
After 1945 a retro fitted vibrato kit added Vibrato and Vibrato chorus, Model name changed to BCV.

Introduction of the Hammond B3, the same as the model B2 but with Hammond Percussion
Percussion introduced on B3, C3, RT3.
The Hammond Organ Percussion Controls enabled the organist to produce a wide variety of tones similar to the orchestra bells, chimes, marimba, xylophone, and harp.
The Percussion Controls were not intended to be exact substitutes for the percussion stops found on some pipe organs.
An important feature of the Hammond Organ Percussion Controls was that the percussion tones may be produced with a key-controlled 'touch-response' in which desired notes of a melody may be accentuated with the percussion tone while others are not so accentuated.

The Hammond X66 Organ was the most luxurious, expensive and innovative model that Hammond had produced.
The main differences from the other models are its pedestal cabinet, sound and attributes. But due to its hi original price very few people could afford to buy one.
Technical Differences
* The general organ sound is more brilliant.
* The percussion sustain is very short.
* The keys in the keyboards are much softer.
* The response of the expression pedal is slower

The concept of the SX and CX series was innovative, the ability to upgrade your Hammond to latest specifications via software (although this was on EPROM) Thus a 10 year old SX2000 could, for a modest fee be upgraded to a SX2500 or an SX3000. The upgrade did not affect Reverb or cabinet design.

Frieda Hall & LaFleur
Hammond Organ Club

The La Fleur brand has long been associated with Boosey & Hawkes, who bought J.R. Lafleur & Sons in 1917. Boosey & Hawkes started importing Hammond organs into the UK c.1937. The LaFleur brand was used for instruments supplied to the new theatres and cinemas of the day, housed in ornate customised cases.
It is thought that they were sold under the LaFleur brand so as not to affect the rather more sober marketing of Hammond organs in the church and home markets.
All known La Fleur Hammonds were built around the Model BC and Model E organs.
Cinemas that used the LaFleur organ include
Glenroyal, Briggate; Ritz, Grays; Essoldos', Chippenham, Newcastle & Sheffield; Granada, Kennington; Rex, High Wycombe; Regal, Wembley; Crescent, Leatherhead; ABC, Hanley.

The Hammond Solovox was for a number of years the best-known monophonic electronic musical instrument made in America. While it permits the playing of only a single note at a time and has neither the types nor variety of tone colors to appeal to most serious musicians, it found extensive use in popular-music ensembles and particularly in the home among amateurs. It was ordinarily used with the piano - the player's right hand playing the melody on the Solovox and the left hand playing an accompaniment on the piano.
