History of the Hammond

Over two million Hammond organs have been manufactured since their 'birth' in 1935. Created by Laurens Hammond as a lower-cost alternative to the wind-driven pipe organ. The Hammond organ quickly became popular with jazz musicians and many organ trios started to form. Jimmy Smith's use of the Hammond B-3, inspired a generation of organ players, and its use became more widespread in the 1960s and1970s in virtually every genre of music, especially jazz.
