Charles Hale

Charles Hale had an idea to hire a monkey to show how an easy-play organ could be operated by anyone. The hysterically funny ads were one of a million clever ideas Hale used in selling keyboard instruments. As the founder of Hale’s Piano and Organ Company in Florida, he established himself as a creative industry leader, leading to the position of President of the NAMM Board of Directors from 1981-1983.
