The Hammond Organ is alive and well, its tradition preserved by a company whose employees, share the passion this legend inspires.
And what a passion it is. For the devout, what instrument can stir the soul in worship like a Hammond? Gospel music is defined by it. Is there a cooler sound than a Hammond Jazz trio? Rock and Roll might a guitarist’s game, but you must add a B-3 and Leslie to evoke the true soul. Blues and R&B would not be the same without it. Country, Pop, Rap, Polka, Easy Listening, and Ethnic musics from every continent turn to the Hammond when getting to the soul is the target.
The Modern Hammond Organ Company is privy to the secrets that made those classic organs play and sound that way. Our engineers have harnessed modern technology to express a 80 year old tone, allowing the organist to have the same experience that vintage Hammonds offer. There’s a straight line of development from 1934 to the present day, and although there are “clones” and imitators on the market, none come close to capturing the soul, power, and versatility of the genuine article.
From the entry-level Sk1 to our flagship B3mk2 each of our instruments possesses the five elements that define the Hammond Sound:
1. Harmonic Drawbars-allowing countless variations of tone.
2. Virtual ToneWheels – the digital representation of the classic electro-mechanical generator.
3. Touch-Response Percussion – adds a distinctive highlight that enhances any tone created.
4. Chorus Vibrato – provides the satiny texture found only on a Hammond Organ.
5. A Digital Leslie™ speaker-providing the unique moving sound when a Leslie Speaker cabinet is not available.
These features insure that all Hammonds sound as they are from the same family. As twenty-first century Hammonds share these features with the highly-prized vintage models, it is clear that they are the same family. You can choose a new Hammond with complete confidence that your organ is the finest sounding, finest playing Hammond ever built.
Another facet of Hammond that has never varied from 1934 to today is the commitment to quality of manufacture, and dedication to customer service. Innovative and efficient design allows a quick and easy solution to the rare service issue.
Buying a new Hammond is always a cause for celebration. Few instruments command such devotion, and instill the thought that you truly made the right purchase.
Hammond-the sound, the soul, the ONE!
