Working reed organ will be destoryed
« on: September 08, 2015, 10:06:31 AM »
Hi

A while ago I mentioned a Mason & Hamlin reed organ, in full working order and regularly used, that is being replaced with a pipe organ.  (The church have been given the pipe organ!).

The M&H will be removed an broken up in a couple of weeks unless a new home is found.  It's all working and in pretty good condition - currently fitted with an electric blower.  Located in rural Warwickshire.

If you can rehouse this instrument (which is of good quality), then please contact me urgently.

Every Blessing

Tony

Is it standard one manual? How many stops?

Best wishes

Hi

It's a Mason & Hamlin "normalharmonium" model 50BQ - looks like 13 stops from the pictures I took.  I can send you pictures etc. if you're interested.  It dates from c.1916.  Available free.

Every Blessing

Tony
