Earliest film footage of a Hammond organ?

3 posts in this topic

Lawrence Welk with Eddie Burke on the Hammond, from 1938 (about 3 minutes into the clip). That would make that organ a model BC. I used to have one, from around that same time.

Wow!

Yeah, Burke is getting quite a shimmery tone out of that thing, which is amazing considering how crummy Hammond's earlier speaker cabinets are. I had one that came with my BC(V) that had what looked like a 10" diameter by 14" grease canister on a spindle with openings on the side that spun in front of two speakers mounted in a V. A very primitive Leslie idea. You had to switch it from the speaker, though. Kinda made it pointless.
