This book includes everything from various models from the original 1935 Model A tube/tone wheel organs; to the solid-state (transistor) era; to the current digital age; with production dates and photos for each. The book also provides a complete history of the Hammond tone cabinets; as well as the famous Leslie speaker; from the first models through the present; with photos and technical data for each.
