Chamberlin - Quality Medical Supplies Manufacturer - China Medical Bandage by brbrbr

Development
Harry Chamberlin's idea for inventing the instrument came from his recording himself playing an organ. He formed the idea of playback music coming from an organ as a source of entertainment. He soon set about designing the first Chamberlin instruments as early as 1949. The intention was for the instrument to function as a home entertainment device for family sing-alongs, playing the Big Band standards of the day. The Chamberlins use as a commercial instrument in rock (or rock and roll) music was never given consideration.
The basic Chamberlin has a piano-style keyboard. Underneath each key is an individual tape playing mechanism. Each tape is pre-recorded with various musical instruments or special effects. When the player presses down a key, a pressure pad pushes the tape on to a tape head and a pinch roller beneath the key catches the tape and pulls it forward into storage box, (or on to a roller mechanism). As this occurs the sound of the tape is heard through an amplified speaker. When the player releases the key, the sound stops, and the tape rewinds by either metal spring rods (as on the early Chamberlins) or by a return roller mechanism (as on the later M1 models). Each tape is only a few seconds long (8 seconds on many units).
Harry Chamberlin spent considerable time (usually from sunrise to sunset) experimenting with sound and had converted a walk-in closet as his first home studio. After obtaining the right acoustics in the room and changing the acoustics of other rooms in his house, the first Chamberlin recordings were undertaken. All Chamberlin recordings were contracted and performed by members of the Lawrence Welk Orchestra in the late '40s and throughout the 1950s. Welk was impressed with the idea of a tape playback instrument and offerred to fund its manufacture if it was called a "Welk" machine. Chamberlin refused Welk's offer.
Chamberlin used Neumann U47 microphones to record the sounds. The sounds are characterized by a very clean output and heavy vibrato which was customary of the music styles of the time. The Chamberlin sounds have little compression and possess dynamics true to the instruments recorded on the tapes (such as the air in the flute, or the flow in of the strings). The Chamberlin instruments were designed to accurately replicate the sound of the instrument recorded on the tape. They were also meant to be physically set in one place and not moved around. Because of this, there was less attention paid to making the instrument robust and many early Chamberlins have no internal chassis and are prone to go out of adjustment.
As Chamberlin refined the build of his instruments, he began to bring them to music trade shows and competitors such as Hammond and Lowrey were often curious about the origin of Chamberlin sounds. In an effort to compete, these companies were forced to create drum rhythms and manufacture plastic tabs with orchestral instrument names on them. These tabs would generate tones that simulated the sound of the instrument selected. The American Federation of Musicians also took notice as well and tried to limit live performances of Chamberlin instruments fearing that their members would be put out of work. Despite the controversy, musicians worldwide embraced the Chamberlin and "Mack the Knife" singer Bobby Darin was one of the first customers, buying a customized model 300 without the rhythm section tapes.
Chamberlin's company eventually grew with his own children working for him and his window cleaner Bill Franson offering to become his salesman. Bill Fransen travelled the country offering the Chamberlin instruments to music stores, parlours, and cocktail lounges. Offers of larger distribution were made, but Harry Chamberlin preferred word of mouth advertising and did not like the terms and conditions of distributorship and eschewed it.
In 1962 Bill Franson had gone missing for several months. A radio could be heard playing music in his apartment but attempts to contact him proved futile. Franson had left for England by boat taking two Chamberlin 600 models with him. (One of these eventually became the possession of Todd Rundgren's studio and appears on XTC's Skylarking album). Franson placed an ad asking for a company that could manufacture seventy standard playback heads. Bradmatic Ltd. - an engineering company responded to the ad.
Franson removed the Chamberlin labels and sold the now re-badged "Franson" instrument to them without Harry Chamberlin's knowledge. Refining the 600 design into the Mellotron Mark 1, Bradmatic eventually became Streetly Electronics and began manufacture of the Mellotron Mark 2 in 1963. Upon Harry Chamberlin's discovery of this, (when contacted by Mellotron distributors in America in 1965) he forced a legal arrangement with Streetly Electronics. After visiting owners Frank, Norman, and Les Bradley in person, (and having an intense discussion with Franson) an arrangement was made where Mellotrons would only be sold in England and Chamberlins would be sold in the USA. Chamberlin would also receive royalty payments from the Mellotron company though this apparently ended in the late 60's. Through this same royalty system, Harry also allowed the Chamberlin "3 violins" sound to be used as the violins sound in the Mellotron library. This violin sound became the Mellotron's main sound used on much of the output of British Mellotron music beginning in the mid-1960s. Consquently it can be difficult to tell whether a recording features a Mellotron or Chamberlin when the 3 violins tapes are used, other than by the country of origin of the recording.
Chamberlin Co. continued to refine and sell their products and invested more serious effort into reliability as they had now had to compete with the Mellotron, and rock bands had adopted the instruments as a sound colour. Their sales of units to major U.S. studios resulted in Chamberlins being heard on many pop records of the 1960s including recordings by The Lettermen, Marvin Gaye, Bobby Goldsboro ("Honey"), The Beach Boys, and educator Edmond S. Bordeaux.
A new Chamberlin design emerged in the late '60s and effectively and permanently ended the use of rhythm tapes in the units. This model was the M1 which emerged in 1970 and was made much more durably and had a flawless tape return roller system. This model had higher quality playback tape heads with no tape warble and greater bandwidth than the Mellotron. The unit was a table-top version of the earlier models and much smaller than the competing M400 Mellotron model. About 130 Chamberlins were built using this system and many musicians and studios embraced the improved design.
These musicians included Disneyland/Disney Worlds' live performance artist Michael Iceberg in his shows featuring electronic instruments. Others include Skip Konte with Three Dog Night, Olivia Newton-John, Leon Russell "Carney", Neil Merryweather, James Taylor, Stevie Wonder, Universal Studios, Ambrosia, The Moody Blues "Seventh Sojourn" (1972). David Bowie (Low through Scary Monsters) [[[Edgar Winter]] ("Jasmine Nightdreams") Joe South, Iron Butterfly, Chip Taylor, New York session player Barry Frederick, Joe and Gino Vannelli, and Bob Seger keyboardist Robin Robbins.
The Chamberlin M1 was the most reliable version of the instrument to date. Chamberlin Co. also continued to earn revenue by licensing certain Chamberlin patents to Mattel for their Optigan keyboard, which used the pre-recorded loop designs by Chamberlin as well as some of the Chamberlin music tapes for the Optigan library. By the end of the 1970s, digital synths took away the market for tape based keyboards and Chamberlin ended M1 production in 1981, building the last few units out of an Ontario, California factory, and later in the family garage with sounds that were never previously released. Harry Chamberlin died in 1986.
In the 1980s Chamberlin use was minimal with only producers like Mitchell Froom (Crowded House) and Todd Rundgren XTC "Skylarking" using the instrument.. The Chamberlin experienced a strong revival in the 1990s with a new generation of musicians using them and appreciating the unique sounds produced by playing them in unorthodox ways. These included Michael Penn and Patrick Warren ("March", "Free For All", "Resigned"), and singer/songwriter/producer Jon Brion on the soundtrack to the film I Heart Huckabees. Tom Waits also championed the instrument on albums such as Frank's Wild Years and Bone Machine. Starting in the late 1990s, Chamberlin sounds were released as software samples for the first time. With the appearance of tape drop-outs, and poor analogue to digital conversion - many of these vary in quality. These sounds were embraced by musicians who could not locate original Chamberlin instruments since only a total of around 700 Chamberlins were made from 1951 to 1981, and less than 50 working models are accounted for today. Because of this, most appearances of Chamberlin as sounds (or dubiously listed in liner notes) on records made after the year 2000, are most likely from digital sources, and not the original Chamberlin instruments. As a result, music students and historians generally refer to music made in the Chamberlin's heyday for authentic examples of the sound. Notable exceptions include recordings made by confirmed Chamberlin owners and regular users such as Patrick Warren, Michael Penn, Jon Brion, Chris Dale, Lars Fredrik Frislie - Wobbler, and producer Brian Kehew.
