Demonstration "Organ"


The Hammond Organ Company made these small cut-away "organs" to demonstrate how the Hammond Organ produced the tones. Only the right most key functions but both drawbars do work. The unit is powered by two "D" cell batteries operated through a momentary switch. The output of the demo unit can be put through a small amplifier so that the tones may be heard.
