The Electro Tone Corporation was a company that produced aftermarket add-ons for Hammond organs in the 1960s and '70s,[1] with more than 2,300 dealers internationally.[2]

The company manufactured the OrganMate reverb kit, PER 200 percussion kit and the Duet Sixteen and Mark II preset kits. These kits were primarily retro-fitted to Hammond organs that required reverb, percussion or presets.

The company was situated at 2014 Broadway,[3] later at 1814-A Colorado Ave,[4] and then at 2126 Pico Blvd,[5] Santa Monica, USA.
