The Museum of Making Music in Carlsbad, California and its Manager of Artifacts and Exhibitions, Jonathan Piper, provides a behind the scenes look at an exceptional artifact, a 1956 Hammond S6 chord organ. As part of the permanent collection in the museum, the S6 marked the introduction of a percussion feature, giving this instrument a particularly dynamic sound. Jonathan explains how the S6 and its predecessors in Hammond’s chord organ line operate as well as the unique marketing campaign Hammond pioneered in this artifact preview.
