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. Scott Faragher's account of the demise of the original company, its limbo, and its rebirth is supplemented by many observations from former and current employees of both the original and the new companies. Also included is a comprehensive buyers' guide telling where to find and buy a vintage organ, what to look for, which models to avoid, and what to pay, as well as important technical tips.
