On May 23, 2004, I became the proud owner of a Hammond S-6 Chord Organ. I purchased it at a flea market being held during the Greek Festival at St. George Greek Orthodox Church in Trenton, NJ.

This organ has a serial number of 40592. WIthout tearing it apart, I have been unable to recognize any dates on any of the components. I am currently "wild guessing" that this organ was made in 1958 by comparing the serial number to a few others I have found on the web.

It is in good working order, except one tube is missing, resulting in 4 out of 12 notes not functioning from the bass pedals and the chord buttons. Thus, several of the three-note chord buttons produce only two notes, and one minor chord (F minor) produces a single note.

I am, at this moment, awaiting the arrival of a Tung-Sol tube I purchased on Ebay for $4.99, plus about another $5 shipping.
