which is connected by a flexible 4 inch diameter hose to the organ.


There are 13 different stops and a knee operated lever, which increases the volume.

Dimensions:
Width = 130cms
Height = 133cms

Depth = 82cms

The stops are listed from left to right on the instrument as follows:
Bourdon 16
Diapson 8
Melodia 8
Flute 4
Aeolian Harp 2
Vox Humana
Octave
Swell to Great
Flute 4
Celeste 8
Melodia 8
Diapson 8

The organ is located in South Worcestershire, near Jct 2 of M50 motorway. 
I am happy to give this organ to a collector who must arrange collection and removal.

NEW - For Sale  Cornish Reed Organ  

A working but rather battered harmonium that I hope will give another family as much fun as it has given us.
We are in South Wales, in Swansea. The harmonium came from New York and has the date 1860 inside.
It was the chapel instrument at our local place of worship until it sadly closed twenty years ago.
I rescued it and we have all thoroughly enjoyed playing it, but it is simply taking up too much room now.

SOLD  Mason & Hamlin Reed Organ

 Single keyboard pump organ - made by Mason & Hamlin Organ Company. 

The dimensions are 131 cm wide, 60 deep and 101 high (in imperial 4'3" x 2'1" x 3'31/2").
It is actually an organ I believe (blowing out rather than sucking in).
It's been in the same spot for the last 35 years -  having previously been bought on a whim
by the owner's grandmother and then used mostly as a plant holder for 20 years.

 Stops: auto swell, 1 diapason, 2 viola, vox humana (with separate on and off pulls), 2 flute, 1 melodia, and euphone solo

The organ will need restoring as some of the stops don't work
The fabric between the pedals and bellows has been fixed (with non-traditional pink leather - not visible...)
but it definitely needs some TLC.

Happy to have £30 or offers -
Buyer must collect or arrange collection from SE14, South London as soon as possible.

Opportunity Two Manual Mason & Hamlin Reed Organ for Restoration

Two years ago I acquired a Mason and Hamlin two manual reed organ. It was, and still is, in very poor condition, and completely unplayable as a result of complete failure of the wind system. It was stored in a barn for decades and hasn't been played to over fifty years. However, it is restorable, and it would be a great pity if I had to sell the keyboard manuals and reeds and destroy the rest of the instrument. And so I am offering it for restoration, subject to the kind of agreement given at the end of what follows..

I had every intention of restoring it, and stripped down the two keyboards and cleaned them. I also cleaned much of the key action system.

The organ has 10 stops, a coupler, and six ranks, most of 61 reeds each. I have removed the sound board and cleaned the reed support blocks One reed support block was quite damaged and was adrift from the sound board. I was hoping that a wood worker colleague would be able to repair the reed block, but he has been unable to do that so far.

The wind system was and still is, in very poor condition, and I have not had time even to examine it. It is not functioning at all, and so it requires extensive work.

Here is a picture I took before I started cleaning some of it:.      





I am in the South West of England. If anyone is interested in restoring and subsequently selling this instrument, I would be pleased to let them have it. I would expect to receive 20% of whatever is its final selling price.

Please contact Kenneth, in the first instance by email, if you'd like to take on this job.

SOLD Karn Reed Organ

D.W. Karn & Co. Parlour Reed Organ, with Mouse Proof Pedals
Style 7B model, number 20993, made in Woodstock, Canada c.1890
Dimensions are as follows:
Height fully assembled: 201 cm (79 in.)
Height with decorative top removed: 126 cm (49.5 in.)
Width: 124.5 cm (49 in.)  Depth: 61 cm (24 in.)

I need to find a home for this handsome example of an American Parlour Reed Organ. Its been in my life since I bought it in c.1965 from the original owner's daughter - a Victorian photographer.

It is in full working order. All 16 stops are still working and the great organ and knee swells are fully functioning. The pedal's springs still spring and the bellows have plenty of puff and finally the "mouse proof pedals" still proudly display in cast metal their anti-vermin guarantee - always a talking point. Two original tools for removing reeds are included.

Several of the Black keys are heavily worn by the original owner's hand but it is still perfectly playable. One of the candle stands needs a simple minor repair it is currently detached from its post. Some re-varnishing touching up would benefit it but it is relatively minor and as would be expected for an instrument of such an age, but overall the case is very presentable. No doubt full restoration would improve it but unlike many examples being offered this one works as it stand now and sound sweet to the ear.

The stops from left to right are as follows:

Bass coupler
Diapason 8 ft
Piano 8 ft
Viola 4 ft
Viola D'Amour 4 ft
Sub Bass 16 ft
Diapason Forte
Vox Jubilante
Viola Forte
Cremona 16 ft
Violincello 16 ft
Vox Angelica 8 ft
Flute 4 ft
Dolce 8 ft
Principal 8 ft
Treble Coupler

The elaborately decorated upper part with its sheet music holder is easily completely removable making transportation more straightforward.

I am located in South East London in SE24

GONE 
to Good Home Two Manual and Pedal Reed Organ

 'UNIVERSITY ORGAN'. Manufacturer possibly Albert Wagstaff or A.J. Spencer
(see http://tardis.dl.ac.uk/FreeReed/organ_book/node14.html for the history)
with mains-powered exhauster, perhaps dating from the 1930s.

Specification:

Great:

Diapason 8
(Dulciana 8') name-plate missing
Trombone 16'
Stopped Diapason 8' (but this is a spurious name-plate, probably Principal 4')
Forte I

Pedal:

(Great to Pedals) name-plate missing
Bourdon 16'
Sub Bass 16'

Swell:

(oboe 8') name-plate missing
Voix Celeste 8'
Salicional 8'
Vox humana
Forte II

Couplers left:

swell to great
sub octave gt.
super octave gt.

This instrument plays (and the exhauster functions) but clearly suffers from many years' neglect in a long-deserted church in Cardiff.
I can send half a dozen more photos to enquirers and a sound file of the instrument being played.
The building in the which the instrument sits is to be bulldozed in mid-April or possibly earlier.

 

Acquirer collects please! The organ is in a gallery and may have to be partially dismantled to get it down the stairs.
