    Hammond Harmonium?

    Did Hammond ever build Harmoniums? I can´t believe. On Ebay local "https://www.ebay-kleinanzeigen.de/s-anzeige/hammond-harmonium/1028503175-74-1124" they offer this:
    C2 1953, as old as I am and 760 rebuilt, Custom M3 1955, custom HX3, Hohner OAB, Ventilator, Service for friends on A100, B3, BV, M100 and some Leslies

    Almost certain the answer to that is, no, not at least the Hammond Organ Company we know. You could mosey over the to Pump & Reed organ channel ask the experts there. They might be able to fill in the missing letters.

      Note that the font on the "Hamm . . . " nameplate doesn't match the Gothic-style font on the stops. The nameplate may not even be original.

        Yes, there was a Hammond Reed Organ Co.

          Interesting, but the article says they manufactured organ reeds. Nothing about manufacturing reed organs. I'm going to move this thread to the Reed & Pump Organ Channel.

        There was one for sale in the classifieds here on the forum a while back. I called about it. Estey, I think bought their foundry. That article was actually about the building. Here's a little more at ROS.

          That piece of a Hammond logo sure looks like the plate off an electric organ to me. I think this is a fake.
          1914 Estey Parlor Organ. 196x Allen T-12a "Special" (MIDI VPO project). Digital piano. Various guitars. Autoharp. Banjo. Bowed saw. Musical Cat.
