 Adding Polyphonic Percussion For 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th and 6th Harmonics to the Hammond (B3, C3, RT3 or A100) allows for much more percussion variation by making 3 more polyphonic harmonics available in addition to the 2nd and 3rd standard harmonics. Using the first 3 drawbars, (the usual setup) there is much more contrast between the drawbar setting and the percussion tones when the upper percussion harmonics are added. The sharp percussive bite is now effective much lower on the keyboard. All harmonics (2 through 6) are controlled independently and may be selected in any combination. For example, the 2nd and 5th or the 2nd and 6th harmonic give a nice “twin mallet” xylophone tone. 
  
-To get the full effect of this harmonic addition EliminatingThePercussionVolumeDrop is very desirable since this will restore full volume control to the drawbar settings. Five miniature toggle switches select the desired harmonic for percussion. Note with this design, the selected percussion harmonic is not available at the drawbars. An additional feature; if a harmonic is selected via a toggle switch, there is no percussion decay when the “B” preset is on and the left most percussion tablet is off (ParadiseButton). The result is a sustained sharp attack for any of the 5 selected harmonics. Note when all five toggle switches are off, the 2nd and 3rd harmonic percussion features are identical to the original stock Hammond

 __DESIGN SCHEMATIC—POLYPHONIC PERCUSSION__ 
  
-<verbatim>  
- The schematic below shows five switches S2 , S3 , S4, S5 and S6 for harmonic selection. 
+The previous design of the 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th And 6th harmonic addition required two 3PDT switches. The circuit design below requires only DPDT switches (5 total). In addition , if the 2nd or 3rd harmonic is selected via the toggle switches , these harmonics are now returned to the drawbars. The harmonic returned is determined by the selection on the 2nd/3rd percussion rocker tablet
  
-S2 and S5 are shown in the ON state. This selects the 2nd and 5th harmonic. S3, S4 and S6 are shown in the OFF state.

 __THEORY OF OPERATION__<br> 
  
 The function of the toggle switch contacts is as follows: 
-The “1” set of contacts selects the appropriate harmonic from the drawbar or terminal strip wire and routes it to the “H” (percussion input on AO-28) terminal. The “2” set of contacts are wired in series to isolate “HW” from terminal “H” anytime a harmonic is selected. The “3” set of contacts on S2 and S3 isolates the 2nd and 3rd harmonic from the console selector rocker tablet so there is no interaction between the 2nd and 3rd harmonic
