The King Of Instruments. Laurens Hammond intended his Organ to be a convenient and economic replacement for pipe organs in Churches, Studios, and Homes. Little did he realize the revolution in music his invention would engender. Combined with Don Leslie’s brilliant and eponymous speaker system, an immortal voice was launched, resonating in every corner of the globe. The “classic” Hammond era from 1934 to 1974 produced the instruments of legend. Mr. Manji Suzuki dedicated his company to bringing those legends back to life for the 21st Century and beyond, doing so in a way that all who wished to play a genuine Hammond Organ could do so. Our range of Console Hammonds and Leslie Speakers are the pinnacle of our art, designed and engineered with precision, faithful to the original blueprints, design notes and spirit of Laurens Hammond and Donald Leslie.
